Kybella is an injectable fat dissolving substance made of deoxycholic acid, which dissolves fat cells. Once the fat cells are destroyed, they can never grow back. This means that the results of the treatment are long-lasting. Additionally, Kybella provides a very even, smooth, natural-looking result that is hard to achieve with other treatments. Liposuction, for example, can result in irregular distribution of fat removal, whereas Kybella is very uniform.
