What is Kybella?
Kybella is FDA-approved (the first and only one) injectable composed of deoxycholic acid. It improves the appearance of the double chin, slimming the area.
Deoxycholic acid is the active ingredient in Kybella, and it is a naturally-occurring molecule in the body! This molecule helps our bodies break down and absorb dietary fat. When it is injected beneath the chin, Kybella destroys fat cells, which means they cannot store fat.
