KYBELLA® is the only FDA-approved injectable treatment that destroys fat cells in the treatment area under the chin (submental fat), jowls, bra bulge, or belly pooch to improve fullness. 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 area of concern Kybella destroys the membranes of the cells that store fat. Once destroyed they are no longer able to contain fat. The body’s natural healing and elimination process takes over and in the course of 4 to 8 weeks, a visible reduction or elimination in fat deposits is seen. Ask our providers today if you are a good candidate for Kybella injections.
