KYBELLA™ is the first and only FDA-approved nonsurgical treatment that contours and improves the appearance of submental fullness.
KYBELLA™ is a nonsurgical, 15- to 20-minute in-office treatment session. It is customized to help you achieve your treatment goals. The treatment permanently destroys fat cells when injected into the fat beneath your chin. Once the aesthetic goal is achieved, re-treatment is not expected. The most common side effects of KYBELLA™ include swelling, bruising, pain, numbness, redness, and areas of hardness in the treatment area.
WHAT IS SUBMENTAL FULLNESS?
Submental fullness, sometimes referred to as “double chin,” is a common yet under-treated facial aesthetic condition that can impact a broad range of adults, including both women and men. Causes may include:
- AGING: It may naturally develop as you age
- GENETICS: Simply said, it may be part of your DNA
- WEIGHT GAIN: It may be a result of gaining weight
SOMETIMES, no matter how much you diet or exercise, the condition may not go away, and can make you look older and heavier than you actually are.
IF YOU’RE BOTHERED BY IT, YOU’RE NOT ALONE
According to a 2015 survey conducted by the American Society for Dermatologic Surgery (ASDS) 67% of people said they’re bothered by submental fullness.

HOW DOES KYBELLA™ WORK?
The active ingredient in KYBELLA™ is deoxycholic acid, a naturally occurring molecule in the body that aids in the breakdown and absorption of dietary fat. When injected into the fat beneath your chin, KYBELLA™ causes the destruction of fat cells. Once destroyed, those cells cannot store or accumulate fat.
IS KYBELLA™ RIGHT FOR ME?
KYBELLA™ may be right for you if
- You’re bothered by submental fullness
- Surgery is not an option for you
- You feel the condition makes you look older or heavier than you actually are
- You eat well and exercise, but submental fullness does not go away.
HOW IS KYBELLA™ ADMINISTERED?
KYBELLA™ is typically given in a 15- to 20-minute in-office treatment session. Dr. Fraker will give you a series of injections into the fat under your chin at each treatment session. You and Dr. Fraker will customize your KYBELLA™ treatment based on the amount of submental fullness you have and your treatment goals. Together, you will decide the treatment plan that’s right for you.
HOW MANY TREATMENTS WILL I NEED?
Many patients treated with KYBELLA™ experience visible contouring of their chin profile in 2 to 4 treatments. Some people require up to 6 treatments in order to achieve results. Once your chin profile has improved, you may not need to be treated with KYBELLA™ again.
