Kybella

Dr. Jeff Camp and his team can provide Kybella to treat stubborn under-chin fat and help reduce or eliminate the "double chin" effect. Kybella is the only FDA-approved injectable treatment that destroys fat cells under the chin to improve your profile.

What is Kybella?

Kybella is a prescription medicine and is the only FDA-approved injectable treatment used in adults to improve the appearance and profile of moderate to severe fat below the chin (submental fat), also called “double chin.”

 

How does Kybella work?

The active ingredient in Kybella is synthetic deoxycholic acid. Deoxycholic acid is a naturally occurring molecule in the body that aids in the breakdown and absorption of dietary fat. When injected into the fat beneath the chin, Kybella destroys fat cells, and once destroyed, these cells can no longer store or accumulate fat. This results in a noticeable reduction in fullness under the chin, revealing an improved chin profile. It is not known if Kybella is safe and effective for use outside of the submental area or in children less than 18 years of age.

 

How many treatments will I need?

Dr. Camp and his team will create a tailored treatment plan based on your chin profile. At each treatment, you will be given multiple small injections under your chin. 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.

How long will the results last?

When injected into fat under the chin, Kybella causes the destruction of fat cells. Once destroyed, those cells cannot store or accumulate fat. After reaching your desired aesthetic, further treatment is not expected.
