Kybella is an injectable form of deoxycholic acid, a naturally occurring molecule in the body that aids in fat breakdown and absorption. Kybella works by destroying fat cells when injected into areas of unwanted fat. Kybella received FDA approval in 2015 for treating submental fat, also known as a double chin.
