What is Kybella? January 24, 2023 Kybella® is an injectable cosmetic treatment that helps patients get rid of their double chin once-and-for-all by melting away submental fat. Kybella gives patients a non-surgical and minimally invasive alternative to more invasive facial contouring procedures – such as neck liposuction – while yielding the same, potentially permanent results. Kybella’s active ingredient, deoxycholic acid, simply melts away targeted fat which is naturally eliminated from the body following treatment. This leaves Houston Kybella patients with a beautifully contoured and slimmed appearance without the downtime and recovery period that comes with traditional facial contouring methods.
