Research has shown that at least two-thirds of individuals with a double chin (submental fullness) are bothered by it. KYBELLA® is the first and only injectable treatment that can successfully eliminate a double chin. This safe and effective treatment offers permanent results and is an excellent solution for improving the contours of your chin and neck.
The Benefits of KYBELLA®
- Quick, customizable treatments
- No recovery time
- Permanently eliminates a double chin
Permanent Fat Removal
Fat beneath the chin may persist despite weight loss, dieting, and exercise. KYBELLA® injections use deoxycholic acid to target and break down fatty cells so that a double chin is fully and permanently eliminated. Even after the fat cells have been broken down and destroyed, the deoxycholic acid continues to break down any new fat cells that may form.
Submental fullness detracts from the natural lines and contours of your jawline and neck. Even if you are naturally slender but have a double chin, your poorly defined neckline may cause others to perceive you as overweight. With KYBELLA® injections, this area beneath the chin is gradually whittled down. The jaw, chin, and neckline become more defined, and the face and body look thinner as a result.
Youthful Face and Neck
A double chin may cause you to look older than you feel. Even if you are still young or of average body weight, some people develop a double chin due to genetics. With the elimination of a double chin through KYBELLA® treatments, a youthful and slender appearance can be restored.
Concerns with one’s physical appearance can lead to decreased self-confidence, poor self-image, and discouragement. Once the results of KYBELLA® have become apparent, the aesthetic improvements serve as a natural confidence booster. Patients are typically extremely pleased with their results and feel remarkably better about their appearances.

KYBELLA® is comprised of deoxycholic acid, a substance that directly targets fat cells. When KYBELLA® is injected into the fatty area beneath the chin, it breaks down the fat cells so that they can be absorbed into the body. Over the following four to six weeks, the lymphatic system flushes these destroyed fat cells out of the body. The deoxycholic acid from KYBELLA® treatment stays in the submental region to prevent more fat from accumulating beneath the chin.
A single, in-office KYBELLA® treatment takes 15 to 20 minutes and has no downtime or recovery.
If you are bothered by the appearance of your double chin, KYBELLA® may be right for you. This treatment can dramatically improve the appearance of your face, chin, and neck by reducing submental fullness.
Patients may need up to six treatments to achieve their ideal results. The number of treatments will vary per patient based on individual needs. Multiple treatment sessions are spaced one month apart to allow time for the initial treatment to produce noticeable results.
As some patients may need multiple KYBELLA® treatments to reach their desired results, the cost of KYBELLA® can vary. When you meet with one of our PREMIERE Center specialists for your free initial consultation, we will discuss your treatment needs and give you more details about pricing.
After KYBELLA® injections, there is no downtime. Possible side effects include temporary swelling, redness, discomfort, bruising, and numbness. Results take a few weeks to become noticeable, as it takes time for the deoxycholic acid to break down the fat cells. As the body excretes the fat cells over the following four to six weeks, results will continue to improve. Patients may need several treatment sessions to achieve their desired results; however, no additional treatments are necessary once the desired aesthetic has been met. After KYBELLA®, patients will enjoy a permanently smoother and slimmer chin and neck contour.
