Looking for a quick, non-surgical way to treat stubborn fat such as the double chin or lower cheeks? Kybella reduces facial fat permanently, helping you achieve the facial contour you want.

What is Kybella?

The drug’s active ingredient is a synthetic deoxycholic acid which aids in the permanent destruction and digestion of fat cells. Kybella dissolves the membranes lining fat cells, causing them to open and gradually, over the span of several weeks, to be expelled by the body’s own immune cells. Kybella requires no sedation and has little to no recovery time.

Once injected, Kybella immediately starts working to destroy stubborn fat cells. This results in a very noticeable reduction in fullness below the chin or around the lower cheeks (jowls). With the removal of fat, Kybella injections result in a more defined jawline.
