How does Kybella work?

If you’ve been looking for a way to get rid of your double chin without surgery, Kybella may be the answer for you.   Kybella is a cosmetic injectable treatment that is specially designed to diminish stubborn fat beneath the chin.  But how exactly does Kybella work.

How does Kybella work?

Kybella is a synthetic form of deoxycholic acid, which is a naturally occurring molecule in the body that assists with the break down and absorption of dietary fat.  When Kybella is injected into the fat beneath the chin, the synthetic deoxycholic acid works in a similar manner. 

Kybella dissolves the membrane of the fat cells, causing them to collapse.  The remaining portions of the fat cells are absorbed by the body, resulting in a reduction in the amount of under-chin fat.

Many patients notice a dramatic reduction in the appearance of their double chin after a few injections (learn more). 

Is Kybella right for you?

If you are looking for a quick, non-surgical solution for your double chin, and you are in good health and at a healthy weight, Kybella may be the right option for you.  Ideal candidates for Kybella should also have minimal skin laxity beneath the chin, because Kybella reduces fat but does not treat loose skin.  

Kybella is an effective, non-surgical alternative for people that have been unable to reduce fat below the chin with diet and exercise, and need a little help melting it away.
