KYBELLA® is a synthetic deoxycholic acid gel that reduces the appearance of the double chin (submental fullness) caused by age, heredity, or weight gain. The injectable permanently destroys fat cells, so that regular treatments are not required after you have achieved your targeted look. Most DermBar clients reach satisfaction at two to three treatments, and no one should receive more than six treatments. Consultation is required prior to treatment as not everyone is a candidate for this procedure.

Frequently Asked Questions

What is deocycholic acid?

Deoxycholic acid is manufactured by our bodies to help absorb and break down dietary fat. KYBELLA® utilizes a synthetic version of this naturally-occurring acid as its active ingredient.

How long does each treatment take?

Each treatment takes about thirty minutes.

How do I look after treatment and is there any down time?

Immediate after treatment you'll notice swelling, bruising, redness, and occasionally numbness. Swelling and redness typically last for three to five days. Icing the treatment site is recommended. A follow-up appointment is required one month after treatment, and you should see optimal results in four to six weeks.
