Kybella: How it Works
Fat cells are unique because their number remains consistent throughout the course of a lifetime. The only way to improve the appearance of fat is to decrease cell size. Diet and exercise are two popular methods of doing this.
Fat cells under the chin are special. Fat cells under the chin are often referred to as stubborn fat. Because the area under the chin is so small, a reduction in fat cell size does improve a double chin. A different approach is needed. When Kybella is injected into the area under the chin, stubborn fat cells decrease in number.
Deoxycholic acid is the main ingredient in Kybella. Deoxycholic acid is a naturally occurring molecule that helps break down dietary fat. The concentrated deoxycholic acid in Kybella disrupts the integrity of fat cell walls. Fat cells die. Dead fat cells are naturally eliminated from the body.
Candidates for a Kybella treatment want to improve their double chin and facial profile. A Kybella treatment is quick and easy. A short, in-office treatment lasts no longer than an hour. Multiple tiny injections are made in predetermined problem areas. Little to no downtime or recovery is associated with treatment. Results are seen within 4-6 weeks. Treatment is repeated 2-6 times for maximum results. Treatment is spaced out in one-month intervals.
