KYBELLA® is the only injectable, FDA-approved treatment option for submental fullness, otherwise known as the “double chin”. Submental fullness can be seen in both men and women and can be related to aging, weight gain, and/or genetics. The stubborn fat under the chin is a common cosmetic concern, and quite often is not decreased by diet and exercise alone. KYBELLA® provides a minimally-invasive, non-surgical method of dissolving this stubborn fat, leaving the area under the chin tighter and more contoured.
The active ingredient in KYBELLA® is synthetic deoxycholic acid, a naturally occurring molecule in the body that aids in the breakdown and absorption of fat. During treatment, KYBELLA® is injected into the fat beneath the chin, destroying the fat cells and resulting in a noticeable reduction in fullness under the chin. The number of injections are customized to the amount of fat under the chin, as well as the anticipated aesthetic goals of the patient. Everyone is different and desired results may require multiple treatments, but once destroyed these cells can no longer store or accumulate fat, so further treatment is not expected once you reach your desired aesthetic goal.
With over 20 clinical studies supporting its use and thousands of patients already treated, KYBELLA® is a safe, effective, and well researched treatment for submental fullness. Additionally, KYBELLA® can be used “off-label” to treat other areas of concern, such as the jowls, bra fat area, and under-arm folds.
