Kybella is an FDA approved medication for the reduction of under the chin fat. Kybella is a component of the bile that naturally occurs in the body known as deoxycholic acid and works to degrade fat cells.
Treatment typically involves several injections in 1-4 separate sessions spread several weeks apart. Kybella is also commonly used off-label in other areas of the body to reduce troublesome pockets of fat.
At EssenceMD we will commonly combine Kybella with Trusculpt 3D for under-chin fat to further reduce fat and provide some skin tightening.
