Kybella is a series of injections which causes the destruction of fat cells. It is made of deoxycholic acid, a naturally-occurring molecule in the body that helps breakdown and absorb dietary fat. Kybella is injected into the unwanted fat under the chin or submental area. Application of numbing cream and ice are often used to help ease discomfort. Typically 2-4 treatments are needed at 6 week intervals. The most common side effects from Kybella include swelling, bruising, firmness, redness, pain and numbness. Results can be seen as early as 4 weeks post treatment.
