KYBELLA® Treatment Steps


Before you begin your treatment, you and your doctor will discuss your goals and medical history. It is important that you address all of your medical conditions, especially if you:

  • Are pregnant or plan to become pregnant
  • Have had or have trouble swallowing
  • Have had any cosmetic treatments in the face, neck, or chin
  • Have any bleeding problems
  • Plan on having surgery near the treatment area


KYBELLA® is made of deoxycholic acid, which is a naturally occurring molecule found in the body that breaks down and absorbs fat. Once injected beneath the skin, it will destroy the fat cells and prevent them from accumulating in the treatment area. Multiple injections will be administered under your chin for maximum results.


Most patients will see visible results within two to four treatments. It can take up to six treatments spaced one month apart to see full results. KYBELLA® patients can expect permanent results that will boost their appearance and self-confidence.


Patients can return home and resume regular activities immediately following their treatment.

Side Effects

Although there is a chance of possible side effects (such as swelling, bruising, numbness, and bleeding), these are all temporary and will alleviate quickly after your treatment.
