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.” KYBELLA™ is deoxycholic acid - a natural bile salt used to break down fat and destroys the fat cells when injected into the "double chin". After treatment with KYBELLA™, the fat cells are permanently destroyed. Learn more about KYBELLA™
