  • The Science: How Does it Work?
    • Kybella’s active ingredient, synthetic deoxycholic acid, simulates the body’s natural deoxycholic acid, which helps to breakdown the absorption of fat. By targeting the submental fat cells underneath the chin, this revolutionary formula reduces the fat cells and then prevents the fat cells from being able to store or accumulate additional fat.During a Kybella treatment, the doctor will insert a small needle into the fat underneath the chin. There will be multiple small injections under your chin, with the entire process lasting about 15 to 20 minutes. The exact number of injections and sessions needed will depend on the amount of fat under your chin and your desired outcome.
