Kybella® is deoxycholic acid, a naturally occurring substance in the body that aids in the breakdown and absorption of fat. When injected into the fat, Kybella® causes the destruction of the fat cells. Once destroyed, those cells cannot store or accumulate fat.
Kybella® is FDA approved for improvement in the appearance of moderate to severe fullness associated with submental fat, sometimes referred to as “double chin”.
The number of treatment sessions you need is based on the amount and distribution of your submental fat and your personal treatment goals. Kybella® works to break down the fat over time, therefore 3-5 treatments may be needed to reach desired results.
