How Does Kybella Treatment Work?
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, Kybella terminates fat cells, resulting in a noticeable reduction in fullness under the chin. Once demolished, these cells can no longer hoard or accumulate fat deposits. Further treatment is not expected once you reach your desired visual goal.
