How does KYBELLA work?
Unlike some cosmetic injections, KYBELLA is a synthetic version of deoxycholic acid, a naturally occurring molecule in the body that aids in the breakdown and absorption of dietary fat. When injected into the fat beneath the chin, KYBELLA works to destroy fat cells resulting in a noticeable reduction in fullness.
Many patients want to know if the results from KYBELLA are permanent, and technically it is. Once the fat cells are destroyed, they can no longer store or accumulate fat. So further treatment is not needed once you achieve your aesthetic goal. However, KYBELLA cannot prevent you from gaining weight in the future, so the best way to preserve your results is to maintain a healthy weight.
