KYBELLA® is the only FDA-approved injectable treatment that destroys fat cells in the treatment area under the chin to improve your profile.
Submental fullness is the accumulation of excess subcutaneous fatty tissue around the chin, neck, and jowls. Otherwise known as a double chin, submental fullness can be the result of natural genetics, the normal aging process, or weight gain; yet whatever the cause, if you have a double chin, you understand just how frustrating excess fat underneath the chin, a poorly-defined jawline, and a heavier, rounded look can be, and just how much it can detract from your otherwise balanced and harmonious facial contours. Especially when coupled with sagging skin and lax muscle tone in the chin and neck, common problems as we grow older, submental fullness leads to an older, heavier appearance that can undermine your look of natural youthfulness, as well as your self-confidence and emotional well-being. Luckily, modern facial contouring techniques can reduce excess fatty deposits at the root of your double chin, and offer you a shapely and chiseled chin and jawline that will improve your appearance and enhance your natural beauty.
KYBELLA® MAY BE RIGHT FOR YOU IF:
- You’re bothered (unhappy, self-conscious, embarrassed) by fat under the chin, also known as submental fullness
- You feel the condition makes you look older or heavier than you actually are
- You don’t want to have surgery
- You eat well and exercise, but submental fullness does not go away
HOW KYBELLA® WORKS
The active ingredient in KYBELLA® is synthetic deoxycholic acid. Deoxycholic acid is a naturally occurring molecule in the body that aids in the breakdown and absorption of dietary fat. When injected into the fat beneath the chin, KYBELLA® destroys fat cells, resulting in a noticeable reduction in fullness under the chin. Once destroyed, these cells can no longer store or accumulate fat, so further treatment is not expected once you reach your desired aesthetic goal.
HOW IS KYBELLA® ADMINISTERED?
Treatment can only be administered by a KYBELLA®-trained healthcare specialist. At each treatment, you will receive multiple small injections under your chin, and the injection process takes about 15 to 20 minutes. The exact number of injections will depend on the amount of fat you have under your chin and your desired profile.
