What is Kybella?
Kybella is a synthetic form of deoxycholic acid, a naturally occurring molecule in the body that helps to break down and absorb dietary fat. When Kybella is injected into the chin area, it destroys the fat cells, resulting in a reduction of fullness in the chin and neck.
Kybella works through injection into the fat beneath the chin. The solution causes the fat cells to break down and be reabsorbed by the body. Over time, this results in a slimmer, more defined chin and neck.
The active ingredient in Kybella, a naturally occurring molecule called Deoxycholic Acid, aids in the breakdown and absorption of dietary fat. When Kybella is injected into the fat underneath the chin, it can not return or accumulate as fat again. This means further treatment isn’t necessary once you’ve reached your desired aesthetic.
