Submental fat, also known as double chin, can be due to multiple reasons including genetics, excess weight, or skin laxity. Due to cosmetic reasons double chins can bother many people and it can even affect our self-esteem. KYBELLA® is the first and only treatment approved to help reduce submental fat.

What is KYBELLA®?

KYBELLA® es un medicamento recetado y es el único tratamiento inyectable aprobado por la FDA que se usa en adultos para mejorar la apariencia y el perfil de la grasa submental de moderado a severo.

This is a new injectable treatment that desintegrate the excess fat that causes double chins. The substance is a form of deoxycholic acid, a naturally occurring material that helps the body absorb fat. Double chins can be a disturbing problem area, but with KYBELLA®, it is now possible to destroy the fat cells contributing to this unflattering appereance.


When KYBELLA® is injected into the fat beneath the skin under the neck region, the membranes of the targeted fat cells are destroyed. Once destroyed, the cells are no longer able to store fat. Fat cells are usually removed from the area within 4 to 6 weeks after receiving injections. This means that with KYBELLA®, you can eliminate the need for liposuction or other invasive fat-elimination techniques. 

Through a series of injections, KYBELLA® imitates the body’s natural fat-absorption process and leaves you with a sleek and slim chin area revealing an improved profile.

¿Qué areas pueden ser tratadas?

  • Papada (debajo de la barbilla)



Después del tratamiento, se puede experimentar hematomas, induración, enrojecimiento y entumecimiento del área que pueden durar hasta 4 semanas.

You may receive up to 6 treatment sessions, spaced at least 1 month apart. Many patients experience visible results in 2 to 4 KYBELLA® treatments. 

Ya que las células destruidas no pueden almacenar ni acumular grasa, después de alcanzar los resultados deseados no se necesitarán más tratamientos.
