Kybella Treatment Destroys Fat Cells Before and After Kybella Treatment

How does it work?

It is a non surgical treatment for submental fat, the fat under your chin. It is the only FDA-approved injectable treatment and works by destroying fat cells under the chin to improve your profile. The active ingredient in KYBELLA® is synthetic deoxycholic acid. Deoxycholic acid is a naturally occurring molecule in the body that aids in the breakdown and absorption of dietary fat. When injected into the fat beneath the chin, it destroys the fat cells so they can no longer store fat.

For optimum results a minimum of 3 treatments is necessary and depending on the significance of fat accumulation under the chin more may be needed.
