What is Kybella?
Kybella is an injectable that is the first and only of its kind to be FDA-approved for treating submental chin fat. This revolutionary formula uses synthetic deoxycholic acid to destroy the fat cells, which the body naturally removes over the course of a few months. The results are permanent and noticeable.
How does Kybella work?
Deoxycholic acid is a naturally occurring substance in the body that aids in the breakdown and absorption of dietary fat. When the Kybella formula is injected into the fat underneath the chin, its synthetic deoxycholic acid components immediately begin destroying the fat cells, preventing them from being able to store or accumulate more fat.
What can I expect during a Kybella treatment?
A medical doctor or certified injection specialist will administer the Kybella through numerous small injections to the area. The entire session takes between 15 and 20 minutes, and is virtually painless. Patients require no downtime, and may return to their usual activities following treatment. Most people can expect to need 2 to 4 Kybella treatments total.
