What is Kybella?

Kybella is deoxycholic acid (DA), which is found naturally in our intestines where it causes the breakdown of dietary lipids. DA acts as a detergent to degrade adipose cells when used cosmetically.  Kybella provides such an injectable form of deoxycholic acid which allows for directed mesotherapy, particularly beneath the chin and around the jawline to enhance these facial contours.   The adipose reduction with Kybella is extremely effective.  Indeed, FDA clinical trials demonstrated that patients who gained weight after treatment did not see their adipose deposits return in the treated area. Kybella is approved for adults with very few exclusion criteria.
