Submental fullness, sometimes referred to as “double chin”, is a
common yet undertreated facial aesthetic condition. It can impact
a broad range of adults, including both men and women, and can
be influenced by several factors such as aging, genetics and weight
gain, and is often resistant to diet and exercise alone.
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 FDA-approved
No anesthesia or surgery required
Fat cells are destroyed permanently.
