Kybella is an FDA-approved (deoxycholic acid) injection that can be used to permanently reduce excess fat below the chin, commonly known as “double chin.” Kybella can also be used for fat reduction in other small fatty bulges such as the front of underarms or fat around the knee. Excess fat accumulation is influenced by multiple factors, and can be resistant to diet and exercise.

How long does Kybella Treatment last?

Kybella is a permanent procedure. Kybella was specifically formulated to be a permanent way to accomplish the degradation and absorption of dietary fat. As a synthetic form of deoxycholic acid, Kybella permanently reduces the fat cells in the area injected.  However, excess weight gain can impact the results of your treatment since new fat cells can accumulate in the treated area.
