KYBELLA® is the first and only FDA-approved injectable drug that contours and improves the appearance of submental fullness. The active ingredient in KYBELLA® is synthetic deoxycholic acid. Deoxycholic acid is a naturally occurring molecule in the body that aids in the breakdown and absorption of dietary fat. When injected into the fat beneath the chin, KYBELLA® destroys fat cells, resulting in a noticeable reduction in fullness under the chin.
Once destroyed, these cells can no longer store or accumulate fat, so further treatment is not expected once you reach your desired aesthetic goal. The number of injections and the number of treatments are tailored to the individual patient’s submental fat distribution and treatment goals. KYBELLA® may be right for you if:
• You’re bothered (unhappy, self-conscious, embarrassed) by fat under the chin,
also known as submental fullness
• You feel the condition makes you look older or heavier than you actually are
• You don’t want to have surgery
• You eat well and exercise, but submental fullness does not go away According to a 2015 survey by the American Society for Dermatologic Surgery (ASDS),67% of consumers are bothered by submental fullness— nearly as many as those bothered by lines and wrinkles around the eyes (69%).
