Kybella is the first and only FDA-approved injectable treatment used to improve the look and profile of the jawline/chin area, what is sometimes called a "double chin."
The active ingredient in Kybella is deoxycholic acid, a naturally occuring molecule in the body that aids in the breakdown and absorption of dietary fat. When injected into the fat beneath your chin, Kybella dissolves the fat cells.
