What is Kybella®?
Deoxycholic acid works as part of the system that breaks down and processes dietary fat in our bodies. When the synthetic form, Kybella®, is injected into the submental fat of the double chin area, it begins to damage and break down these fat cells. The only FDA-approved injectable to treat a double chin, Kybella® offers a non-surgical, non-invasive method of removing this stubborn fat.
How Does Kybella® Work?
Kybella® works by disrupting and breaking down the fat that forms your double chin. When injected into this area as a series of injections, Kybella® immediately starts to work on the fat cells. After the fat cells have been broken down, the body’s lymphatic system will naturally filter away the remnants of fat, leaving the area smoother and more contoured.
The fat cells removed with Kybella® will never come back. We recommend that most people receive two to three treatments, each spaced four to six weeks apart. This ensures the maximum removal of unwanted fat. You should not need further treatments, since the fat cells cannot regrow.
