Ladies and gentlemen, meet Kybella, Kybella is the first and only FDA approved prescription medicine used to improve the appearance and profile of double chin (submental fat), until recently, surgery with anesthesia was the best option for anyone looking to achieve the Holy Grail of lower-face: a sharper, more chiseled chin. Enter a game-changing new injectable solution called Kybella.
First things first, what is in that needle?
Kybella is the trade name for ATX-101, a patented synthetic form of deoxycholic acid, a naturally occurring molecule that helps metabolize dietary fat.
Does it really melt off a double chin?
Kybella is a cytolytic drug, which when injected into fat tissue, will physically destroy fat cells. Now don't get confused, it wont melt off your chin fat like butter in the microwave with one treatment, some patients will require more that one treatment depending on the amount of fat.
