Proven Results

Kybella's safety and effectiveness was tested extensively under an international clinical development program that covered over 20 clinical studies and 2,600 patients worldwide. More than 68 percent patients confirmed a positive response with this treatment in the pivotal Phase III studies. Patients reported reduction in the amount of fat in the submental region. Many patients also confirmed that they achieved emotional benefits due to the reduction of excess fat below the chin.  


Kybella injections are administered directly into the targeted fatty tissue underneath the chin. Multiple injections are given in a single treatment session. A single session can last for about 20 minutes. Most patients may require two to four treatments to achieve desirable results. Up to six treatments of Kybella can be administered, depending on the patient's needs. The President of the American Society for Aesthetic Plastic Surgery (ASAPS), Dr. Michael C. Edwards, strongly supports Kybella treatment. Dr. Edwards calls it a revolutionary procedure with excellent potential for the aesthetics industry.
