You cannot choose where fat deposits will appear on your body. You can eat a healthy diet and exercise to keep body fat percentages low but your genetics and other factors can control where fat is stored. When you have bra bulges, knee fat or a double chin, there is a way to shrink these problem areas. Kybella injections are a non-invasive treatment to destroy fat cells in a targeted area on your body.
What Are Kybella Injections?
Kybella injections contain synthetic deoxycholic acid, a substance that can destroy fat cells. Deoxycholic acid molecules naturally occur in the body for the breakdown of dietary fat. The synthetic form of deoxycholic acid in Kybella attacks fat cells, destroying the membranes. When Kybella is injected into an area with abundant fat cells, the cells disintegrate and the fat is reabsorbed into the bloodstream. Once fat cells are destroyed, they do not rejuvenate, which can permanently shrink the targeted area.
Targeted Fat Loss
Kybella is FDA-approved for reducing fat deposits under the chin. Many people have a chubby chin, even when the rest of their body is slim. This treatment was designed to dispel fat cells in this specific area that is difficult to reduce through diet or exercise. However, it is also effective for targeted fat loss in other areas.
Many people have an area that seems to hold on to fat regardless of weight loss efforts. Kybella is not for losing weight, but it can shrink small, specific areas that are prone to fat accumulation. Most people will require a series of treatments, scheduled about one month apart, to achieve the desired result. The procedure is discrete and requires no downtime – the targeted area shrinks over several weeks or a few months with only a quick office visit for each treatment.
