Kybella is the first and only FDA-approved injectable drug that contours and improves the appearance of submental fullness, otherwise known as a double chin. Kybella is a non-human and non-animal formulation of deoxycholic acid, a naturally-occurring molecule in the body that aids in the breakdown and absorption of dietary fat. When injected into subcutaneous fat, Kybella causes the destruction of fat cells. Once destroyed, those cells cannot store or accumulate fat. This is a very easy procedure and the effects will be seen within 4-6 weeks. The number of injections and the number of treatments is tailored to your individual submental fat distribution and treatment goals. When the aesthetic response is achieved with Kybella retreatment is not expected or needed.
