What is it?
Kybella is a prescription medicine used in adults to improve the appearance and profile of moderate to severe fat below the chin, lower jawline, armpit fat, bra bulges, and lower buttock fatty folds.
How does it work?
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.
