Kybella

Submental fullness or “double chin” is a very common manifestation of the aging process.  Submental fullness can be influenced by factors such as aging, genetics, weight changes, and is often resistant to diet and exercise.  Many people do not notice their double chin until seeing themselves in digital photographs from a side profile.  Statistics indicate that 68% of people are bothered with a double chin which correlates with complaints of lines and wrinkles around the eyes.  

KYBELLA™ (deoxycholic acid) injection is the first and only FDA-approved nonsurgical treatment that contours and improves the appearance of submental fullness or double chin.  Kybella is a nonsurgical alternative to more invasive alternatives such as surgery or liposuction.  Kybella is a simple office procedure requiring no anesthesia and very minimal downtime.

Many patients experience visible contouring of their chin profile in two to four treatment sessions spaced at least one month apart.  

KYBELLA™ has been the focus of a global clinical development program involving over 20 clinical studies with more than 2,600 patients worldwide, of which over 1,600 have been treated with KYBELLA™.

In the pivotal Phase III clinical trials:

  • 68.2% of patients responded to KYBELLA™, compared to 20.5% of patients who responded to placebo, based on validated physician and patient measurements
  • 79% of patients treated with KYBELLA™ reported satisfaction with the appearance of their face and chin
  • After being treated with KYBELLA™, patients reported improvement in self-perception, including feeling happier and younger based on their chin profile, as well as feeling less embarrassed, less self-conscious, less overweight and less bothered by submental fullness.
