What is KYBELLA®?

Bothered by the fullness under your chin?

According to a 2015 survey conducted by the American Society for Dermatologic Surgery (ASDS): 67% of people are bothered by the fullness under their chin.

KYBELLA® is the first and only FDA-approved injectable treatment to improve the appearance of moderate to severe fat beneath the chin by physically destroying fat cells.
