What is Kybella™?

Kybella is a prescription medicine. It is the only FDA approved injectable treatment option for removing double chin and the excess submental fat under the chin.

How Does Kybella® Work?

The main ingredient that helps burn the excess fat under the chin is the synthetic deoxycholic acid found in Kybella. This naturally occurring molecule speeds up the process of breaking down the excess fat, burning fat cells, and eliminating double chin for an extended period.

Where Can Kybella® Be Used?

Kybella Treatment San Diego is most commonly used to take care of excess submental fat under the chin, but it can also prove to be useful for removing fat along:

  • Jawline
  • Armpit
  • Bra Bulges
  • Buttock

What To Expect?

Since synthetic deoxycholic acid can destroy fat accumulating cells altogether, you will not see fat get under your chin after a successful treatment phase giving you visible results and a great looking chin profile.
