It is an injectable, technically, but it is completely different than a neuromodulator or a filler. It is used only to address the double chin, clinically known as submental fullness. Kybella® is essentially made from deoxycholic acid, which occurs naturally in the body. The job of deoxycholic acid in the body is to aid in the breakdown and absorption of fat under the chin, therefore, slimming the profile. Kybella® is injected in a series of injections across the jowls. Most people don’t feel the need for topical numbing.
Kybella® usually involves more swelling, especially following the first injection session (the FDA has cleared Kybella® for up to six injection sessions).
