Kybella is an injectable product used to decrease small pockets of fat in the face and body.

Kybella in New Fairfield, CT and Thornwood, NY

Kybella is the only FDA-approved injectable used to permanently dissolve small pockets of fat. Its active ingredient is a naturally occurring molecule in the body that aids in the breakdown and absorption of dietary fat. Once injected into a small fat pad it destroys the fat cells so that they can no longer store or accumulate fat.

How Kybella Works

Kybella is a synthetic deoxycholic acid that, once injected into a pocket of fat, will begin to break it down allowing a reduction in appearance over time. Upon injection, Kybella works by disrupting the fat cell membrane, causing it to rupture. This process, known as adipocytolysis, releases the fat content, which is then metabolized and cleared away by the body’s natural processes. Over time, the treated fat cells are permanently eliminated, resulting in a more sculpted jawline and a reduction in submental fullness.

Why We Like Kybella

This treatment is ideal for patients that are looking to remove small pockets of fat that would otherwise not be a coolsculpting or lipo candidate. Candidates for Kybella injections in New Fairfield, CT should generally be in good health, have realistic expectations, and wish to improve the appearance of their chin and jawline without undergoing invasive procedures such as surgery.

Kybella treatments are generally not recommended for individuals below 18 years old. Additionally, as the safety of Kybella during pregnancy or breastfeeding has not been established, it’s not recommended for individuals who are planning to get pregnant or are breastfeeding.
