Kybella Treatment (2 of 3) for double chin.
What is Kybella®?
Kybella is a nonsurgical injectable technique used to target the fat beneath the chin, or double chin. The process uses a series of deoxycholic acid injections to target the fat cells in this area. The destruction of fat cells is permanent. This treatment is a great alternative to liposuction.
How Kybella® Works
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® destroys fat cells, resulting in a noticeable reduction in fullness under the chin. Once destroyed, these cells can no longer store or accumulate fat, so further treatment is not expected once you reach your desired aesthetic goal.
