Kybella, also known as Deoxycholic acid, is the first FDA-approved treatment to reduce the appearance of a double chin. Kybella is a synthetic, injectable substance identical to the chemical our bodies naturally produce to absorb fat cells. According to a survey conducted by the American Society for Dermatologic Surgery, 68% of respondents were unhappy with submental fat, or excessive fullness under the chin. Used to treat moderate-to-severe submental fat, Kybella can help reduce fullness. After several studies and two clinical trials, 70% of those tested reported an improvement in both physical and emotional wellness.
How does the treatment work?Kybella, a liquid cytolytic drug, is administered through several small injections in the submental fat tissue. Up to 3-4 sessions may be needed, with each session being scheduled 6 weeks apart. Patients with greater volume may require more sessions.
