How KYBELLA® Works
The active ingredient in KYBELLA® is synthetic deoxycholic acid. Deoxycholic acid is a naturally occurring molecule in the body that aids in the breakdown and absorption of dietary fat. When injected into the fat beneath the chin, KYBELLA® destroys fat cells, resulting in a noticeable reduction in fullness under the chin. Once destroyed, these cells can no longer store or accumulate fat, so further treatment is not expected once you reach your desired aesthetic goal.
What is the downtime?
Normal side effects include bruising and swelling, like with any injection treatment. The FDA also reported the possible side effects of redness, numbness, and hardness in the injection areas. You may want to schedule your treatments on a Thursday or Friday so you can ride out the swelling over the weekend, or learn to embrace the neck scarf. Arnica gel is always a popular topical treatment to reduce bruising and swelling according to RealSelf users, and can be purchased at most pharmacies and health food stores. Discuss recovery tactics with your doctor if you need to be out and about.
