What is KYBELLA®?
KYBELLA® is the first and only FDA-approved injectable drug that contours and improves the appearance of submental fullness. Patients asking about their submental fullness may, at times, refer to it as their “double chin.”
It is a common, yet under-treated facial aesthetic condition that can:
- Detract from an otherwise balanced and harmonious facial appearance1
- Lead to an older and heavier look2
- Impact a broad range of adults, including both women and men
- Be caused by aging, genetics and/or weight gain3
How Does It Work?
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. It is administered by subcutaneous injections directly into submental fat.
When injected into subcutaneous fat, KYBELLA® causes the destruction of fat cells. Once destroyed, those cells cannot store or accumulate fat. After the aesthetic response is achieved, retreatment is not expected.
In clinical studies, many patients experienced visible results in two to four treatment sessions spaced at least one month apart. Up to 6 treatments may be administered. The number of treatment sessions necessary for desired results will vary from patient to patient.
The most common adverse reactions were edema/swelling, hematoma/bruising, pain, numbness, erythema and induration. KYBELLA® is manufactured through a highly-controlled, FDA-regulated process and approved facility to ensure patient safety.
