Kybella® for Double Chin

kybella logo

Kybella is a non-surgical injectable for reducing small, well-defined areas of fat under your chin. It is very well-studied and ten years in the making.

The injection contains a naturally occurring molecule called deoxycholic acid. Its job in the body is to aid in digestion by breaking down fat. When injected into the fat beneath your chin, Kybella causes the destruction of fat cells. Like with the CoolMini, once destroyed, those cells are naturally flushed out of the body.

A Kybella treatment consists of a bunch of small injections at one time. While patient experiences vary, most notice visible improvement in their chin contour with two to four treatment sessions spaced at least one month apart. The most common side effect is swelling which can be significant.

Here are some photos from the clinical trials.
Keep in mind that each patient is unique and your results may vary.
