Submental fullness, also known as a “double chin,” is common among people of all ages. You may have had this condition since childhood due to genetics. Other individuals may develop excess fat below the chin due to weight gain or aging.
Kybella™ is the only injectable treatment FDA-approved to permanently destroy fat cells under the chin to create a sleeker, more youthful profile.
Kybella’s active ingredient is a synthetic form of deoxycholic acid—a salt naturally found in human bile to help digest fat. When deoxycholic acid is injected under the chin, Kybella destroys fat cell membranes. This causes fat cells to dissolve into cellular debris. Immunologic cells then clear this debris into your body’s circulatory and lymphatic systems over a few weeks. Both the dissolved fat and the synthetic deoxycholic acid are ultimately metabolized and excreted naturally by your body.
During a Kybella treatment series, fat cells get destroyed, so once your double chin is gone, it’s gone for good
You don’t have to fall within a certain BMI range to have a double chin, and for many individuals, the condition is genetic and cannot be altered no matter how much they diet and exercise. Men and women and people of all ages deal with submental fullness.
Kybella is probably right for you if:
Why Kybella is better than the alternatives
Kybella can get rid of a double chin, improving your profile by slimming and contouring your chin and jawline.
Before Kybella was approved by the FDA in 2015, the only option for fixing a double chin was surgical liposuction. Though liposuction is effective, an invasive surgery naturally carries many more risks than a series of injections. Kybella, on the other hand, can produce the same impressive “Wow Factor” with much less risk and much more comfort.
The first step towards getting Kybella will be a consultation and examination with a specialist to determine if Kybella is suitable for you. Then you’ll work together to tailor a treatment plan to your goals.
Many patients see results after just two to four treatments, but you may need up to six to reach your goal. Each treatment session, spaced between one month and six weeks apart, usually involves numbing the area with a lidocaine cream and then receiving several small Kybella injections underneath the chin.
Kybella is a prescription medication and, therefore, a doctor needs to prescribe it, and a specialist trained in aesthetic medicine needs to administer it.
