Kybella® is an injectable treatment that is designed to help sculpt and contour the body and face. It is FDA approved for the chin (submental fullness) and used off label to target areas such as the abdomen, bra fat, and back, where fat tends to accumulate.
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 fatty areas, Kybella® destroys fat cells, resulting in a noticeable reduction of fullness. Once destroyed, these cells can no longer store or accumulate fat.
Ilanit Samuels, PA-C, will carefully evaluate the treatment area to determine if Kybella® is right for you. She will then create a personalized treatment plan to meet your unique needs and aesthetic goals.
