What Is Kybella?

Kybella is an injectable treatment. When injected, it works by breaking up the fat cells that contribute to the double chin. The substance is a man-made form of deoxycholic acid, a naturally occurring material that helps the body absorb fat. Double chins can be distracting to your appearance, but with Kybella you can destroy the fat cells contributing to this uncomplimentary occurrence.

Many people have tried all types of diets, exercise and they eat healthy, but still find it difficult to eradicate the fat around their submental area. This low hanging, fleshy region is often referred to as a ‘double chin’.

Fat under the chin, known medically as submental fullness, has traditionally only been treatable with liposuction and other invasive fat removal techniques. The great thing about Kybella is that through a series of injections, it mimics the body’s natural fat absorption process, leaving the surface of the skin untouched and delivers a sleek chin area that is picture perfect.

Here are some benefits of Kybella:

  • Return to your normal activities immediately after your treatment
  • Completely nonsurgical
  • Minimally invasive – a series of painless injections without the need for anesthesia
  • When sufficient treatment sessions are undertaken, can provide an effective alternative to chin liposuction

How Kybella Works

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 not expected once you reach your desired aesthetic goal.
