It is identical to deoxycholic acid, which also naturally occurs in the body and helps it to break down and absorb fats. When these fat cells are destroyed, they never come back, ensuring that once your reach your desired goal your results will last.
An Alternative to Liposuction for Treating a Double Chin
Kybella gives people concerned about the appearance of a double chin an FDA approved alternative to liposuction. A survey done in 2015 by the American Society for Dermatologic Surgery found that ⅔ of survey respondents were bothered by the fat beneath their chin. People reported being just as worried about a submental fullness as by the wrinkles around their eyes. The treatments for wrinkles around the eyes like BOTOX Cosmetic are the most common cosmetic dermatological procedure.
