Moderate to severe fat below the chin (submental fullness), also called "double chin"
KYBELLA® (deoxycholic acid) injection is the first and only FDA-approved injectable treatment to improve the appearance of moderate to severe fat beneath the chin (submental fullness) by physically destroying fat cells. KYBELLA® is injected under the skin directly into the area beneath the chin. KYBELLA® must be given in a series of up to 6 treatment sessions in order to be effective. Topical numbing may be applied or an ice pack to ease pain and make you comfortable during the injections. Each treatment session should be spaced no less than 1 month apart. Many patients have had visible results after 2 to 4 sessions. Your provider will determine the right number of KYBELLA® injections and how many sessions you need, depending on the results you want.
Common Side Effects:
The most common side effects include swelling, bruising, pain, numbness, redness, and areas of hardness in the treatment area.
