KYBELLA™ (deoxycholic acid) is the first and only FDA-approved injectable drug that contours and improves the appearance of submental fullness. (a.k.a. Double Chin). When injected into subcutaneous fat, KYBELLA™ causes the destruction of fat cells and once destroyed, those cells cannot store or accumulate fat. Submental Fullness is caused by aging, genetics, or weight gain. Treatment with KYBELLA™ is customized by Dr. Riopelle to the patient’s aesthetic goals for an improved chin profile. Once the aesthetic response is achieved with KYBELLA™, re-treatment is not expected.
