While double chins aren’t serious medical conditions, they are visible cosmetic imperfections that many people wish would simply disappear. Many people are bothered by the appearance of double chins in photos – especially those taken from a profile perspective. In fact, 80% of people with double chins are troubled by this area of their bodies. Created by Allergan®, the company behind Botox, Kybella is the first and only injectable that can target this problem area.
WHAT IS KYBELLA?
Kybella is a new injectable treatment that melts away the excess fat that causes double chins. The substance is a man-made form of deoxycholic acid, a naturally occurring material that helps the body absorb fat. Double chins can be a pesky problem area, but with Kybella you can destroy the fat cells contributing to this unflattering phenomenon.
If you’ve tried every diet and exercise plan imaginable but still struggle with unwanted neck and chin fat, you aren’t alone. Many people who eat healthy and have no problem toning their arms, legs and abs still find it difficult to eradicate the fat around their submental area. This low hanging, fleshy region is often referred to as a “double chin.”
With Kybella, you can eliminate the need for liposuction or other invasive fat-elimination techniques. Through a series of injections, Kybella mimics the body’s natural fat-absorption process and leaves you with a sleek and slim chin area that’s picture perfect!

How It Works
The active ingredient in Kybella® is deoxycholic acid, a naturally-occurring molecule in the body that aids in the breakdown and absorption of dietary fat. When injected into the fat beneath your chin, Kybella causes the destruction of fat cells. Once destroyed, those cells cannot store or accumulate fat. Talk with Dr. Pam Kimbrough or Jo Fuller ARNP-CNP to estimate how many treatments you will need. Once the desired aesthetic response is achieved with Kybella, retreatment is not expected.
