The First FDA-Approved Injectable To Treat A Double Chin
Kybella® is the first FDA-approved injectable designed to significantly reduce submental fullness or a double chin. It contains deoxycholic acid which has been found to permanently destroy the fat beneath the chin that is resistant to exercise or diet. Most patients require several treatment sessions to achieve their desired results and enjoy permanent results.
BENEFITS OF KYBELLA
People are often very self-conscious about the fat that accumulates under their chin. Physicians recommend Kybella® because of the following benefits:
- An alternative to more invasive procedures to eliminate the pocket of fat
- Costs much less than other cosmetic procedures performed for the same purpose
- Slims the jawline
- Results are permanent
IS KYBELLA RIGHT FOR ME?
If you are dissatisfied with your appearance because of a double chin, Kybella® may be right for you. To determine this, you should schedule a consultation so that we can evaluate the area and determine if Kybella® can achieve your desired look.
HOW ARE KYBELLA TREATMENTS PERFORMED?
Kybella® is injected beneath your chin into the targeted area. The deoxycholic acid, a naturally occurring substance in the body, breaks down and absorbs the accumulated fat. The result is a smoother, slimmer chin and neckline that is permanent even if there is weight gain following the treatments. Each treatment takes 20 minutes up to an hour depending on the extent of the area to be treated. It is important to note that Kybella® is FDA approved exclusively for treating a double chin – not other parts of the body.
With Kybella®, most patients require two to four sessions that can be completed within a month. With Kybella®, once the initial treatments are completed, no further treatments are necessary as the results are permanent.
WHAT DO I DO NEXT?
If you have a double chin that never goes away no matter how healthy your lifestyle is, we recommend you schedule a consultation. At this appointment, we will evaluate your chin to determine if this is the right treatment to achieve your look, as well as answer any of your questions.
HEAR WHAT PATIENTS ARE SAYING ABOUT THEIR KYBELLA® TREATMENT
The fact that KYBELLA® is an injectable treatment was a big plus, and I liked that treatment was tailored to me by my doctor.
I used to be a little heavier and my double chin was really obvious. But even after I lost the weight, it was still there.
I’m used to getting aesthetic treatments, but I’m not willing to go under the knife. So KYBELLA® was the right choice for me.
