KYBELLA® is the first and only injectable treatment approved by the FDA that can significantly improve chin profile and contour the jawline by decreasing the amount of fat present in the chin. Chin fan or submental fullness, is otherwise known as a “double chin”.
What is Submental Fullness?
Submental fullness, also known as “double chin”, is a common yet undertreated facial aesthetic condition. It can detract from an otherwise balanced and harmonious facial appearance, leading to an older and heavier look. Submental fullness can impact both men and women, and can be influenced by several factors such as aging, genetics, weight gain, and is often resistant to diet and exercise alone.
How does Kybella work?
Kybella is a synthetic formulation of deoxycholic acid, which is a naturally occurring molecule in our body used to break down and absorb dietary fat. Once injected in the chin area, Kybella causes the destruction of fat cells. Once destroyed, those cells cannot store or accumulate fat. This fat reduction will provide a more defined contour of the jawline and improve your overall cosmetic appearance.
What kind of results can I expect?
Many patients will experience visible results in just 2 treatment sessions. However, multiple treatment sessions may be needed to achieve a desired cosmetic outcome. Treatment sessions are typically spaced one month apart. After the desired results are achieved, further treatment with Kybella is not expected.
