Frequently Asked Questions

What is Kybella?


Kybella is deoxycholic acid which is a naturally derived product that works to destroy fat cells where it is injected into the body. Kybella is used to help decrease the appearance of fat that hangs below the chin, typically called a double chin.


Will lifestyle changes naturally get rid of my double chin?


Although there are exercises which claim to target the fat under the chin and neck, stubborn pockets of fat are notorious for their persistence despite diet and lifestyle changes. Kybella injections can be used to support such activities to minimize the appearance of a double chin.

Kybella, also referred to as deoxycholic acid, is FDA-approved for use on fat underneath the chin.
