since both KYBELLA & AQUALYX contain deoxycholic acid, what's the actual difference (except they're used in different countries)

Kybella for Fat removal in submental area

Kybella is the only FDA approved injection for destroying the fat (dissolving it) permanently under the chin.  The other option is the Coolsculpting (mini applicator) to permanently destroy the cells.  Please consult an expert.  Best, Dr. Green


In the United States, Kybella is the only product FDA approved for chemical lipolysis before the chin.  It would be your only option in the United States.
