KYBELLA™ (deoxycholic acid)
- Posted on: Feb 29 2016
KYBELLA® (deoxycholic acid) is the first and only FDA approved injectable medication that contours and improves the appearance of excess fat below the chin (submental fat).
Aging, genetics, and weight gain can cause submental fullness that is often resistant to improvement even with diet and exercise. If you’re bothered by submental fullness, 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 under-the-chin fullness, or double chin.

Deoxycholic acid is a naturally occurring molecule that aids in the destruction and absorption of dietary fat. When injected into the fat below your chin, it destroys fat cells and improves the appearance and profile of moderate to severe submental fat. Read more about Kybella here.
