Kybella is the first and only FDA-approved nonsurgical treatment that contours and improves the appearance of submental fullness.

What is it?

Kybella is the first and only FDA-approved nonsurgical treatment that contours and improves the appearance of submental fullness.

Kybella

  • Is a nonsurgical, 15 to 20 minute in-office treatment session
  • Is customized to help you achieve your treatment goals
  • Destroys fat cells when injected into the fat beneath your chin. Retreatment is not expected.

How does Kybella work?

Kybella is a naturally-occurring molecule in the body (deoxycholic acid) that aids 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.

About Submental Fullness

Submental fullness, sometimes referred to as “double chin”, is a common yet undertreated facial aesthetic condition. It can impact a broad range of adults, including both men and women, and can be influenced by several factors such as aging, genetics and weight gain, and is often resistant to diet and exercise alone.

If you’re bothered by submental fullness, you’re not alone. According to a 2015 survey conducted by the American Society for Dermatologic Surgery (ASDS):2

  • 67% of people said they’re bothered by under-the-chin fullness, or double chin
  • People are just as bothered by under-the-chin fullness as they are by lines and wrinkles around and under their eyes

 

How many treatments will I need?

You and your doctor will customize your KYBELLA® treatment regimen, including how many treatments you need, based on your desired chin profile. Many patients experience visible results in 2 to 4 treatment sessions. During these sessions, your HCP will administer KYBELLA® into the fat under your chin using multiple injections. Up to 6 treatment sessions may be administered spaced no less than one month apart.

  • In clinical studies, results for KYBELLA®-treated patients who had a ≥1-grade composite improvement were 8% (1 treatment), 28% (2 treatments), 43% (3 treatments), 55% (4 treatments), 66% (5 treatments) and 72% (6 treatments)
  • In clinical studies, results for KYBELLA®-treated patients who had a ≥2-grade composite improvement were 0% (1 treatment), .2% (2 treatments), .8% (3 treatments), 3.5% (4 treatments), 3.9% (5 treatments) and 15% (6 treatments)
  • 59% of subjects in the clinical trials received all 6 treatments

Safety Information: You should not receive KYBELLA if you have an infection in the treatment area. See detailed Important Safety Information here.
