What is Kybella® and how does it work?
Kybella® is a synthetic deoxycholic acid molecule. Deoxycholic acid is a naturally occurring molecule that assists in the breakdown and absorption of fat in your body. Once injected, Kybella® destroys the fat cells under your chin. This results in improvement in the submental fullness or “double chin.”
