Kybella®️ is a deoxycholic acid injection that permanently dissolves excess fat cells. It’s FDA-approved to be used under the chin–AKA the “double chin” area. You can also use Kybella on any fat: armpit fat, bra line fat, knees, thighs, arms, etc. Kybella is helpful for patients with stubborn excess fat, but it doesn’t treat loose skin–it only destroys fat cells.
