Annoyed by how your double chin stands out in your selfies? Fat pockets under the chin, medically known as “submental fat” are the result of aging and genes. Kybella was designed to dissolve fat cells under the chin for a more defined jaw and neckline. The non-invasive, non-surgical procedure has gained immense popularity since getting FDA approval in 2015.
The active ingredient in Kybella melts fat cells. Kybella contains synthetic deoxycholic acid, a bile acid produced in the liver that breaks down the dietary fat you consume. It works similarly when injected into subcutaneous fat beneath your chin: destroys fat cells permanently! The cellular debris is ejected by your body as waste.
