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.

During your consultation, you and one of our Expert Atl Derm Providers will determine how many treatments you need. Once the desired aesthetic response is achieved with KYBELLA ®, retreatment is not expected.

What To Expect

KYBELLA ® (deoxycholic acid) injection is the first and only FDA-approved injectable treatment that contours and improves the appearance of submental fullness, sometimes referred to as “double chin”.

You and your Atl Derm Expert Provider will design a treatment plan tailored to help you improve your chin profile. During your treatment sessions, KYBELLA ® will be administered into the fat under your chin using multiple injections.
