Kybella ® (Fat Reduction)

Kybella® (deoxycholic acid injection), an FDA-approved nonsurgical fat reduction injectable treatment, targets and eliminates fat cells under the chin (submental fat). The look of fullness under the chin is diminished as a result, which can enhance your face’s overall profile and shape. Clinical research has demonstrated that Kybella® is safe and effective when used as prescribed by your provider, with few side effects. It’s crucial to note that for optimal outcomes, Kybella® should be used in conjunction with other therapies like exercise, nutrition, and lifestyle modifications.


Kybella is an effective, FDA-approved injectable treatment used to improve your profile by targeting and destroying those stubborn fat cells below the chin (aka “double chin”). 

The active ingredient in KYBELLA® is synthetic deoxycholic acid, which is a naturally occurring molecule in the body that aids in the breakdown and absorption of dietary fat.



Before starting treatment, your healthcare specialist will examine the area under and around your chin to determine if KYBELLA® is right for you. Then, your specialist will tailor your treatment to the amount of fat under the chin and your aesthetic goals.

Please be sure to tell your provider about all of your medical conditions, including if you: 

  • Have had or plan to have surgery on your face, neck, or chin
  • Have had cosmetic treatments on your face, neck, or chin
  • Have had or have medical conditions in or near the neck area
  • Have had or have trouble swallowing
  • Have bleeding problems
  • Are pregnant or plan to become pregnant (it is not known if KYBELLA® will harm your unborn baby)
  • Are breastfeeding or plan to breastfeed (it is not known if KYBELLA® passes into your breast milk)
  • Are taking any medications, especially blood thinners



At each treatment, you will receive multiple small injections under your chin, and the injection process takes about 15 to 20 minutes. The exact number of injections will depend on the amount of fat you have under your chin and your desired profile.

Since everyone’s chin profile is different, the number of treatments varies from patient to patient. Your healthcare specialist will help determine how many treatment sessions you need based on the amount and distribution of your submental fat and your personal treatment goals. 

Each KYBELLA® treatment session is given at least 1 month apart, and you should not receive more than 6 treatments. In clinical studies, 59% of patients received 6 treatments.
