How Kybella® Works

Just as naturally occurring deoxycholic acid breaks down dietary fat, the deoxycholic acid in Kybella® triggers cytolysis, a process that involves the destruction of cellular membranes. Losing their cohesive integrity, fat cells release their contents, which are then processed by the body and eliminated.

Deoxycholic acid works on a variety of cells, so careful injection into only the targeted fat cells beneath the chin is vital. Extensive medical knowledge and the ability to envision how changes to one area will impact other features on the face allows your injector to tailor a treatment that will yield pleasing results while minimizing risk.
