Kybella is made from deoxycholic acid. This is a molecule that occurs naturally in the body and helps break down and reabsorb fat. When injected directly into the treatment area, Kybella destroys unwanted fat over time. Once fat cells are removed from the body, they are permanently eliminated.
TREATMENT OF SUBMENTAL FULLNESS (DOUBLE CHIN)
Kybella is the only FDA-approved injectable treatment for submental fullness (double chin). Kybella is a naturally occurring substance (deoxycholic acid) that targets and permanently destroys fat cells in the area where it is injected. Most patients need at least two treatments, spaced 6-8 weeks apart, to obtain noticeable improvement in their profile. The results of the treatment are permanent. Patients with loose skin or poor skin tone may not be suitable candidates for the procedure.
The active ingredient in KYBELLA is synthetic deoxycholic acid, a naturally occurring molecule that aids in the breakdown and absorption of dietary fat. When injected into the fat beneath the chin or other desired areas, KYBELLA® destroys fat cells, resulting in a noticeable reduction of fullness. Once destroyed, these cells can no longer store or accumulate fat, so further treatment is not needed once you reach the desired aesthetic goal.
Kybella is a modern age non-invasive neck sculpting technique alternative to traditional liposuction.
