KYBELLA® is an injectable detergent known as deoxycholic acid that naturally occurs in your body. KYBELLA® is FDA approved to reduce the appearance of submental fullness, or what is commonly known as a “double chin”. Once injected, the acid breaks down the unwanted fat cells which are then metabolized and removed naturally by your body. The injection initially causes swelling, but over time, the fat cells are slowly removed and the fullness reduced. Treatment with KYBELLA® is considered permanent, but several treatments may be necessary to achieve the desired results.
