“Submental fullness” (double chin) is a condition that can affect anyone, regardless of age or weight. But a double chin is most common with weight gain and aging and can also be the result of genetics. There was a time when there wasn’t anything to be done about a double chin, as it’s usually resistant to diet and exercise. So the only option was to have a surgical procedure, such as liposuction, or simply learn to live with it.
You probably don’t want to live with your double chin
Some 70% of people who participated in a recent survey reported concerns with submental fullness. Respondents reported that a double chin and a lack of profile definition made them feel:
- Less attractive
- Insecure about their appearance
Patients who received Kybella injections have reported a noticeable boost in their self-confidence.
Then along came Kybella
Kybella is a relatively new, FDA-approved non-surgical treatment specifically designed to eliminate moderate to severe submental fullness. The procedure can be ideal for those seeking a more defined chin and jawline non-surgically. Kybella is a treatment administered via injections of an ingredient called deoxycholic acid, a substance found naturally in the body. This acid is able to work safely to literally melt away fat cells under the chin.
The Kybella difference
This process of removing fat from beneath the chin is different than traditional weight loss to remove fat:
- Traditional weight loss – fat cells shrink and volume is reduced
- Kybella injections — completely destroy fat cells permanently eliminate submental fullness
How much Kybella is enough Kybella?
The answer to that question is different for every patient. Our doctors will review your unique needs in order to determine how many treatment sessions you will need. This estimation is based on the amount and distribution of each patinet’s submental fat and appearance goals. Most patients typically require three to six sessions of injections, as the fat break down occurs over time.
