KYBELLA™ is an injection indicated for improvement in the appearance of moderate to severe convexity or fullness associated with submental fat in adults. Formerly ATX 101 has been approved by the FDA for the permanent treatment of Chin Fat.
HOW KYBELLA® WORKS
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.
How is KYBELLA® administered?
How many KYBELLA® treatment sessions will I need?
Since everyone’s chin profile is different, the number of treatments varies from patient to patient. The doctor will help determine how many treatment sessions you need based on the amount and distribution of your submental fat and your personal treatment goals.
