How does KYBELLA® work?

KYBELLA® is an injectable treatment prescription medicine. It is injected into the targeted fat underneath the chin to get rid of fat cells build up. When these cells are removed, they will no longer be able to build up fat. This process is how KYBELLA® works. *

KYBELLA® has an active ingredient that is responsible for destroying the fat cells. This ingredient is deoxycholic acid. The latter is a naturally occurring molecule in your body that helps out in breaking down and absorption or accumulation of dietary fat. The fat that has been cleared out from the treatment area is processed by the body’s natural metabolism. *
