What is Kybella?

Kybella is a brand name for a nonsurgical injection treatment specifically designed to reduce submental fat, also known as a double chin. It's the only FDA-approved injectable for this purpose, making it a popular choice for those seeking a non-invasive way to contour their jawline.

How Does Kybella Work?

Kybella's secret weapon is synthetic deoxycholic acid (DCA), a molecule that mimics your body's natural fat breakdown process. Injected into your submental fat, DCA acts like a tiny bulldozer, dissolving fat cells. Your immune system then cleans up the debris and paves the way for new collagen, leading to a slimmer, sharper jawline.
