Frequently Asked Questions

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, resulting in a noticeable reduction in fullness under the chin. Once destroyed, these cells can no longer store or accumulate fat, so further treatment is not expected once you reach your desired aesthetic goal.

You will likely need at least 2-4 treatments of KYBELLA®, spaced 4-6 weeks apart, for the best results. Please note that we use about 2-3 vials per treatment and each vial costs $675.

You’ll notice results in 3-6 weeks from your session.
