Kybella is an injectible treatment made up of deoxycholic acid, which naturally occurs in your body, that destroys fat cells in targeted treatment areas. Kybella reduces fat gradually, and actually removes the fat cells from the targetted treatment area. Patients may have anywhere from three to six treatments roughly one month apart to achieve their desired results. The destruction of the fat cells prevent the targeted treatment area from storing fat in the future. After all Kybella treatments are complete, re-treatment is usually not necessary, and the most common side effects are mild and limited to the treatment area.
