Kybella® fat dissolving

What is Kybella® Fat Dissolving Injection?

Fat dissolving injection is a non-surgical, localized fat reduction method. The main 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 skin, Kybella® destroys fat cells permanently, resulting in a noticeable reduction in fullness in the areas of concern. Since these cells can no longer store or accumulate fat once destroyed, no further treatment session would be necessary. The injection is suitable for small areas such as under the chin, face, belly, extremities, and other parts. Once administered, Kybella® accelerates fat metabolism, fat cell degeneration and absorption,and simultaneously tightens skin.
