What is Kybella™?
Kybella™ (deoxycholic acid) injection is the first and only FDA-approved injectable treatment that is used in adults to improve the appearance and profile of moderate to severe fat below the chin (submental fat), also called, “double chin”. It is not known if Kybella™ is safe and effective in children less than 18 years of age. It is not known if Kybella™ is safe and effective for use outside of the submental area.
The active ingredient in Kybella™ is deoxycholic acid, a naturally-occurring molecule in the body that aids in the breakdown and absorption of dietary fat.
When injected into the fat beneath your chin, Kybella™ causes the destruction of fat cells. Once destroyed, those cells cannot store or accumulate fat.
