What is KYBELLA?

KYBELLA is a prescription medicine used in adults to improve the appearance and profile of
moderate to severe fat below the chin (submental fat), also called “double chin.”

It is not known if KYBELLA is safe and effective for the treatment of fat outside of the submental area or in children under 18 years of age.

How does KYBELLA work?

Once the fat cells in the treatment area are gone, they’re gone!

    • Deoxycholic acid is a naturally occurring molecule that helps break down fat in the body.
    • The active ingredient in KYBELLA is injected into the treatment area beneath the chin.
    • Over a period of time, those cells are cleared away through the natural processes of your body.
    • You are left with a noticeable reduction in fullness under your chin.

What to expect

    • Treat. Repeat. Complete.
      • Your provider will recommend the number of treatment sessions you may need to
        achieve your aesthetic goals.
    • Each treatment is at least 1 month apart.
      • Schedule your next appointment before you leave the office.
    • Office staff will take your photo before and after each treatment.
      • Track the change in your chin profile line throughout your treatment series.

The injection process may take 15 to 20 minutes.

Your provider may use cold packs or local anesthesia to help make you more comfortable.

Ask your provider about treatment package pricing to help you save since multiple treatments are likely.

Possible side effects

Sometimes serious side effects can occur, including:

    • Nerve injury in the jaw that can temporarily (median 44 days) cause an uneven smile or facial muscle weakness (experienced by 4 out of 100 people in clinical studies).
    • Trouble swallowing (experienced by 2 out of 100 people in clinical studies).
    • Possible injection-site problems that include a collection of blood under the skin (hematoma) or bruising, damage to an artery or vein if KYBELLA is inadvertently injected into it, hair loss, open sores (ulcers) damage, and tissue cell death (necrosis) around the injection site. Call your healthcare provider if you: begin to develop weakness in the muscles of your face, or your smile becomes uneven; have difficulty swallowing, or if any of the symptoms that you already have got worse; develop open sores or drainage from the treatment area.

The most common side effects in the treatment area include:

    • Swelling
    • Redness
    • Areas of hardness
    • Numbness
    • Pain

Swelling is an expected reaction to treatment

It generally became less severe and happened less often with subsequent treatment sessions in studies.

TIP: When scheduling treatment, consider planned social or work commitments, as side effects of swelling are common.
