Deoxycholic acid is the technical name for Kybella, and in case you have not come across Kybella it is a relatively new treatment for double chins.

Kybella is what is known as bile acid. This is naturally produced by the body and its job is to absorb fat. The treatment – which must be administered by someone properly qualified – takes about 15 – 20 minutes.
The practitioner marks the chins with a series of injection points. They may also numb the area to reduce the possibility of discomfort. Then they will inject the entire area, perhaps as much as 50 or 60 times. This has the effect of destroying the fat cells and they can no longer hold fat, reducing the fat cells in the entire area.
This doesn’t happen overnight. In fact, it takes a few weeks for the full effects of the treatment to occur. It usually takes more than one treatment to achieve the desired effect. But you and your practitioner will assess how many sessions you are likely to need.
The good news is that it is non-invasive so you will be up and at them really quickly. The side effects are normally minimal too so you can go straight to work if you want to.
