The active ingredient in KYBELLA® is synthetic deoxycholic acid. Deoxycholic acid is a naturally occurring molecule in the body that aids in the breakdown and absorption of dietary fat. When injected into the fat beneath the chin, KYBELLA® destroys fat cells, resulting in a noticeable reduction in fullness under the chin. Once destroyed, these cells can no longer store or accumulate fat, so further treatment is unnecessary once you reach your desired aesthetic goal.
Before starting treatment, an Enigma Medispa healthcare specialist will examine the area under and around your chin to determine if KYBELLA® is right for you. Then, our specialist will tailor your treatment to the amount of fat under the chin and your aesthetic goals.
Here at Enigma Medispa the treatment is always administered by a KYBELLA®-trained healthcare specialist. At each treatment, you will receive multiple small injections under your chin, and the injection process takes about 15 to 20 minutes. The exact number of injections will depend on the amount of fat you have under your chin and your desired profile.

Since everyone’s chin profile is different, the number of treatments varies from patient to patient. Your healthcare specialist will help determine how many treatment sessions you need based on the amount and distribution of your subdermal fat and your personal treatment goals. Each KYBELLA® treatment session is given at least 1 month apart, and you should not receive more than 6 treatments. In clinical studies, 59% of patients received 6 treatments.
After KYBELLA® treatment, you will likely have some swelling, bruising, or numbness under your chin. None of these symptoms should prevent you from going about your business normally.
When injected into fat under the chin, KYBELLA® causes the destruction of fat cells. Once destroyed, those cells cannot store or accumulate fat. After reaching your desired aesthetic, further treatment is not expected.
Committed to personalized care, we administer treatment only if it’s truly in the client’s best interest. As such, we determine candidacy for all of our procedures on an individual basis after a thorough discussion of your cosmetic goals, concerns and desires. However, most individuals are considered to be candidates for Kybella if they are between 18 and 65 years of age and wish to reduce the fat under their chin without undergoing an invasive surgical procedure.
