KYBELLA® (deoxycholic acid) injection is the first and only FDA-approved non-surgical injectable treatment that contours and improves the appearance of submental fullness, sometimes referred to as “double chin”. The active ingredient in KYBELLA®, deoxycholic acid, is a molecule that occurs naturally in the body. Its primary function is to aid in the breakdown and absorption of dietary fat.
When injected into the fat beneath your chin, KYBELLA® causes the DESTRUCTION of fat cells. Once destroyed, those cells cannot store or accumulate fat, making the results of treatment with KYBELLA® permanent!
Our physicians have been trained in the injection and treatment techniques of this innovative product. Upon consultation, your doctor will carefully evaluate the degree of your submental fullness and the amount of correction necessary for optimal results. Once you and your doctor discuss your treatment plan, KYBELLA® injections are administered during a regular office visit with minimal anticipated recovery effects.
