How Do Kybella Injections Work?

Kybella is the only FDA-approved injectable treatment geared toward destroying excess fat located underneath the chin. With the active ingredient of synthetic deoxycholic acid, this naturally occurring molecule helps with the breakdown and absorption of dietary fat. When injected into the area beneath the chin, noticeable reductions in the amount of fat and fullness appear. Once addressed, these cells can no longer accumulate fat in the future. In other words, visiting our office for this procedure could offer a long-term remedy for those who have an issue with excess fat in the chin area.
