KYBELLA for Double Chin


KYBELLA® (deoxycholic acid) is an FDA approved injectable medication that dissolves fat and gets rid of a double chin.  This treatment improves the appearance of moderate to severe fat below the chin (submental fat).

How does KYBELLA® (deoxycholic acid) injection 10 mg/mL work?

When injected into the fat beneath the chin, KYBELLA® permanently destroys fat cells. Your body’s natural metabolism then processes the fat cleared from the treatment area. Once the fat cells are gone, you’re left with a noticeable reduction in fullness under the chin.  The active ingredient in KYBELLA® is synthetic deoxycholic acid. Deoxycholic acid is a naturally occurring molecule in the body that helps break down fat.


Bothered by extra fullness beneath your chin? It may be something you’ve had your whole life, something that developed over the years, or something you noticed recently.  This may be a condition called submental fullness, or “double chin.”

If you’re bothered, you’re not alone.  1 in 4 adults surveyed online was bothered by their double chin.*

* Online survey of 4000 men (51%) and women (49%), ages 18 to 79 years old, who had an annual household income of $50,000 or more.
Diet and exercise alone may not help

Submental fullness can be caused by weight gain, genetics and/or aging.  Sometimes, no matter how much you exercise or diet, the condition may not go away.  KYBELLA® may help. Ask us how.
