Do you have some extra fullness beneath your chin? Maybe it’s something you’ve had your whole life, something that developed over the years, or something you noticed recently. This is a condition called submental fullness, which some people refer to as “double chin.”
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.
Before starting treatment, we will examine the area under and around your chin to determine if KYBELLA® is right for you. Then, your injector will tailor your treatment to the amount of fat under the chin and your aesthetic goals.

Get rid of chin fat fast with Kybella! Learn how quick and easy it is to get rid of chin fat permanently in 1-2 treatments
I am a 43-year-old mom of a six-year-old. I came into the med spa looking to feel a little fresher; a little more confident about myself. I’m about to reenter the workforce as my son is now in school full-time and I needed a little boost. I am not self-conscious to take pictures with my son or even a selfie up close. Before Kybella, whenever I would smile you would see the double chin and a turkey neck there no matter what I did. There’s only so much you can do to hide it and scarfs in July in Phoenix just look weird. This gave me an incredible amount of confidence and as silly as it sounds made me feel a lot better about myself. I have a jawline now.
