Deoxycholic acid is a bile acid, naturally produced by your body to help absorb fat. Kybella injections use a synthetic form of this as an injection. Once injected, the acid destroys fat cells beneath the chin area so it cannot store fat anymore.
Once the deoxycholic acid destroys fat cells in the submental area, the results should be lasting, and further treatment is not expected as the fat cells can no longer store fat. Most people require more than one treatment to reach desired aesthetic goals with Kybella. In clinical studies, many people who have received Kybella treatment achieved it. Six treatments were necessary in 59 percent of cases.
