One area of concern for many people is underneath the chin. The more technical term for a double chin is submental fullness. Double chins are surprisingly common, but not something you have to live with. KYBELLA® is the only FDA-approved injectable treatment that kills the fat cells in this area. The process permanently gets rid of the fat cells and allows for a gradual improvement of the facial profile. As a result, you can look both younger and thinner.
How KYBELLA® Works
In order to give you the facial profile you desire, KYBELLA® uses synthetic deoxycholic acid. Deoxycholic acid is actually found naturally in your body. It is involved with the breakdown and absorption of fat. By injecting a synthetic version in strategic places, unwanted fullness underneath your chin can be eliminated. After the fat is destroyed, your body will naturally flush out these cells, reducing the fullness underneath your chin. Due to the fact that the cells will be permanently unable to store fat, this treatment should not need to be repeated once you reach your optimal results.
How many injections per treatment and overall number of treatment sessions you will need will vary. Many people are happy with their results after just one treatment. This can be determined at a personalized consultation where a treatment plan is made.
Benefits of KYBELLA®
There are many reasons that this is such a popular treatment choice for people with moderate to severe submental fullness. Some of the most important ones include:
- This is a very efficient and quick treatment.
- There is no downtime. You can resume your normal routine right after treatment.
- It is safe and FDA-approved.
- Fat cells are destroyed, giving you long-lasting results.
- Your results are gradual, giving you the facial profile you want without a dramatic, overnight change.
- There is no surgery required.
Who Is a Good Candidate for KYBELLA®?
KYBELLA® is only approved for use in submental fullness in adults aged 18 and over. If you are bothered by having a double chin and do not want to turn to a surgical solution, KYBELLA® may be the perfect solution for you.
