Kybella Injections Treatment
Submental fullness, also known as a “double chin,” is a common facial aesthetic condition that is often left untreated. Many adults, both male and female, experience this facial condition with age or weight gain, and cannot be treated with diet and exercise alone. In a 2014 study conducted by the American Society for Dermatologic Surgery, 68% of people said that the fullness under their chin bothered them just as much as wrinkles around and under their eyes.
What is Kybella?
Kybella™ is the first FDA-approved, non-surgical treatment used to contour and improve the appearance of submental fullness. Kybella™ is injected into the fat pad nestled under the chin and then works to melt the fat and tighten the skin. The active ingredient in Kybella™ is deoxycholic acid, a naturally-occurring molecule in the body that aids in the breakdown of fat. Once these cells have been destroyed, they cannot store or accumulate fat.
In two to four treatment sessions, you’ll experience visible contouring of your chin profile. Up to six treatments can be administered, one per month. Once all treatments have been administered, results are permanent and do not require retreatment.
