The primary active ingredient in Kybella® is deoxycholic acid which is formed synthetically. This acid is produced naturally by the body and aids in the breakdown and absorption of dietary fat. Thus, when Kybella® is injected under the chin, it is able to demolish fat cells which results in a noticeable reduction in the treatment area. Results are usually seen almost immediately after injection.
