HISTORY OF KYBELLA
Since April 2015, Kybella fat dissolver has been revolutionizing the world of non-surgical cosmetic treatments. You may have seen Kybella on Good Morning America, news programs, or while surfing the Internet.
Until Kybella FDA approval, there was little you could do about submental fat except wear turtlenecks or get a surgical liposuction treatment. But now, this brand-new non-surgical cosmetic procedure makes it possible to ditch your double chin and achieve a tighter, more contoured look without incisions or downtime.
HOW DOES IT WORK?
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 fat beneath the chin, KYBELLA® destroys fat cells, resulting in a noticeable reduction in fullness under the chin. Once destroyed, these cells can no longer store or accumulate fat, so further treatment is not expected once you reach your desired aesthetic goal.
