What is Kybella?

Kybella is a prescription medicine made with synthetic deoxycholic acid. It is used to destroy fat cells under the chin (commonly known as “double chin”) and improve your profile.

What should I expect?

Kybella treatments are simple and easy for most patients. A patient recieves multiple injections under the chin, which can take about 15-20 minutes. The exact number of injections is different for each patient. Treatments are given at least one month apart, and patients should not receive more than six treatments. The treatments should result in reduced fat under the chin and an improved profile appearance.
