Kybella is an FDA-approved procedure that helps with moderate to severe submental fullness or double chin. The procedure is individually tailored to diminish fat cells under the chin, leaving an improved profile.
How does Kybella (deoxycholic acid) injection 10mg/mL work?
When injected into the fat beneath the chin, Kybella permanently destroys fat cells. Your body’s natural metabolism then processes the fat cleared from the treatment area. Once the fat cells are gone, you’re left with a noticeable reduction in fullness under the chin.
The active ingredient in Kybella is synthetic deoxycholic acid. Deoxycholic acid is a naturally occurring molecule in the body that helps break down fat.
In clinical studies, reductions in submental fat were observed more frequently in the Kybella group compared with the placebo group, as measured by combined clinician and patient ratings.
