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 use outside of the submental area.

Tried Every Gym Class and The ‘Double Chin’ Still Won’t Go Away?

Submental fullness due to fat beneath the chin can be caused by genetics, weight gain and aging.

According to a 2015 survey by the American Society for Dermatologic Surgery (ASDS), 67% of people are bothered by the excess fat beneath their chin.

Sometimes, even with diet or exercise, unwanted fullness beneath your chin may not go away.

DOUBLE CHIN SOLUTIONS

  • Ask your phisician about KYBELLA

Who should not receive KYBELLA®?
