KYBELLA® (deoxycholic acid) is a chemical that dissolves fat. It is a prescription medicine used in adults to improve the appearance and profile of moderate to severe fat below the chin (submental fat), also called “double chin.”
The amount of Kybella needed for one treatment session varies among patients, but on average, requires approximately 20 injections for treatment of a double chin. The number of sessions required also depends on the individual. Once treatment sessions are complete, the results are expected to be permanent.
