What is Kybella?
In the last decade a revolutionary treatment has been studied, trialed, and FDA approved for literally, melting fat under the chin. Kybella is an injection treatment for submental fullness that rids the area under the chin of excess fat. This sounds amazing right? Of course, it is easy to be skeptical as promises of fat elimination treatments have been around for years. However, Kybella is the FIRST FDA approved treatment for the appearance of submental fat (double chin). Understanding the science behind it is the first step.
How does Kybella work?
Deoxycholate acid, the main synthetic ingredient of Kybella, is an acid found in the stomach that digests and processes fat molecules for absorption. When injected into the fat beneath the chin, Kybella destroys fat cells, resulting in a noticeable reduction in fullness under the chin. The fat is then processed through the lymphatic system and exited out of the body with other natural waste. Once destroyed, these cells can no longer store or accumulate fat, so further treatment is not expected once you reach your desired aesthetic goal. Here is a quick video that explains this process:
