Injection lipolysis (more commonly known as Kybella) is an FDA-approved, non-surgical fat reduction procedure that specifically targets the fat cells underneath the chin and provides targeted facial contouring.
Kybella works by injecting synthetic deoxycholic acid into the skin. Deoxycholic acid is a molecule that occurs naturally in the body and helps break down the absorption of fat.
When injected beneath the chin, deoxycholic acid destroys fat cells and prevents the area from storing or accumulating more fat. This can lead to a more contoured face and slimmer profile, sometimes after just one procedure.
