This annoying trait (often inherited) can make a person look older, heavier and less attractive than they would otherwise. Worse yet, this fat under the chin does not typically respond to changes in diet and exercise as other parts of the body tend to do. The stubborn, unwanted fat beneath the chin has notoriously been among the most difficult areas of the body to treat cosmetically. Now, thanks to the innovative, FDA-approved injectable, Kybella, patients are enjoying a slimmer, more streamlined profile and a huge boost in their self-confidence.

What Makes Kybella So Effective?

Kybella is formulated with deoxycholic acid. This potent molecule is found naturally in the human body. It works to break down fat reserves and escort their waste out through a normal elimination process. When injected into the fat beneath the chin, Kybella works to metabolize the fat cells and flush them from the body.
