What is it?
Kybella@ is deoxycholic acid. Deoxycholic acid is naturally produced in our bodies to help with fat breakdown and absorption.
Kybella® is a solution that is injected into areas of excess fat to permanently destroy fat cells. It is the first and only FDA approved treatment for destroying moderate to severe sub-mental (under chin) fat without requiring invasive surgery.
Get rid of your double chin for good!
Having excess neck fat can detract from otherwise attractive features. Dealing with excess chin fat has a psychological impact for many people, causing them to feel and look older, and heavier. This issue affects both men and women, and is often genetic, though is also influenced by diet and lifestyle.
How does it work?
The active solution of deoxycholic acid is injected into the area and damages the membranes of fat cells, causing them to die and then be broken down and cleared by the body. The fat cells that are destroyed are permanently gone.
