Kybella (deoxycholic acid) is a prescription medicine used in adults to permanently improve the appearance and profile of moderate to severe fat below the chin (submental fat), also called “double chin.” In addition, small areas of fat can be treated such as bra fat, belly and muffin top, jowls, and upper knee.
It uses an active ingredient called deoxycholic acid to break down injected fat. Deoxycholic acid is an emulsifier that naturally exists in the human digestive system and breaks down the fat in the foods we eat to facilitate digestion and metabolism. When injected into the skin for aesthetic purposes, Kybella functions in the same way, breaking down unwanted fats and making it easier for the body to process.
Treatment can only be performed by specialists trained by Kybella. With each treatment, several small injections are given under the chin. The injection process takes about 15-20 minutes. The exact number of injections depends on the amount of fat under the chin and the desired profile.
Reduces unwanted areas of fat, such as that unwanted bra fat, jowls, and small areas of the abdomen.
It can also be used to reduce any lumpy pockets on the body.
