Kybella Houston

Is the first and only FDA-Approved injectable treatment that contours and improves the appearance of submental fullness, sometimes referred to as a “double chin”.

Dr. Humble will design a treatment plan tailored to help you improve your chin profile. During your treatment sessions, he will administer KYBELLA® into the fat under your chin using multiple injections. Many patients experience visible results in 2 to 4 treatment sessions. Up to 6 treatment sessions may be administered spaced no less than one month apart.

Submental fullness, sometimes referred to as “double chin”, is a common yet under-treated facial aesthetic condition. It can impact a broad range of adults, including both men and women, and can be influenced by several factors such as aging, genetics and weight gain, and is often resistant to diet and exercise alone.1

If you’re bothered by submental fullness, you’re not alone. According to a 2015 survey conducted by the American Society for Dermatologic Surgery (ASDS):2

  • 67% of people said they’re bothered by under-the-chin fullness, or double chin
  • People are just as bothered by under-the-chin fullness as they are by lines and wrinkles around and under their eyes

FAQ

How does KYBELLA® work?

The active ingredient in KYBELLA® is deoxycholic acid, a naturally-occurring molecule in the body that aids in the breakdown and absorption of dietary fat.
When injected into the fat beneath your chin, KYBELLA® causes the destruction of fat cells. Once destroyed, those cells cannot store or accumulate fat.

Is KYBELLA® right for me?

Only you and your doctor can decide if KYBELLA® is right for you. If you’re bothered by submental fullness, or double chin, ask your doctor aboutKYBELLA®.

KYBELLA® has been the focus of a global clinical development program involving over 20 clinical studies with more than 2,600 patients worldwide, of which over 1,600 have been treated with KYBELLA®.
