What is Kybella?
Kybella is an injectable treatment that targets submental fullness, also known as a double chin. This non-surgical approach permanently destroys cells that store fat under the chin to refine your jawline and sculpt an elegant profile.
Submental fullness can be genetic or caused by aging. The stubborn condition may cause patients to look older or heavier than they really are, despite living healthy lifestyles. FDA-approved Kybella eliminates fullness under the chin and prevents fat from being stored there in the future. It requires minimal recovery time, and side effects are minor and temporary.
How does Kybella work?
Kybella’s active ingredient is synthetic deoxycholic acid, a molecule that occurs naturally in the body. The acid helps to break down and absorb dietary fat, which can accumulate under the chin. When injected into this area, Kybella attacks fat cells that cause submental fullness. Once removed, these cells can no longer store or accumulate fat.
Everyone’s chin profile is unique. Patients may receive up to six injections of Kybella, though many see results within four treatments. Your Kybella plan will be tailored to your aesthetic goals. Once achieved, additional injections aren’t necessary. Your results are for life.
For those who are unhappy, self-conscious, or embarrassed by submental fullness, FDA-approved Kybella may be the best option for reducing fat beneath the chin.
