In the age of the “selfie” it’s a bit easier to capture the perfect angle and hide any unflattering views, especially when it comes to hiding a double chin. For many, that little pocket of fat can negatively affect self-confidence.
Getting rid of a dreaded double chin just got easier — without undergoing surgery — with KYBELLA®. It’s a newly approved injectable to treat moderate-to-severe fat below the chins (submental fat), also known as “double chin.” Submental fat makes a person look heavier or older than they really are, so getting rid of it provides a very real and visible benefit.
The active ingredient in KYBELLA® is a synthetic version of a naturally occurring molecule (deoxycholic acid) that aids in the breakdown and absorption of dietary fat. Injecting KYBELLA® into fat below the chin destroys fat cells, which creates a noticeable reduction in fullness. When these fat cells are destroyed, they can no longer accumulate or store fat, so the body absorbs them.
Only a KYBELLA®-trained healthcare specialist can administer this treatment, which involves multiple small injections beneath the chin. The injection process takes 15 to 20 minutes, and the number of injections is determined by the amount of fat and the patient’s desired profile. Most patients require 2 to 4 treatments for optimal results.
In addition to KYBELLA®, other injectable fillers – including Botox®, Restylane® and Juvederm® – can produce dramatic results without surgery. The fillers are injected into facial areas to smooth out wrinkles or add volume. Patients often begin these treatments when they are in their 30s or 40s, when less product can be used to achieve satisfactory results.
