What is submental fullness?
Submental fullness, sometimes referred to as a “double chin” is a common yet undertreated facial aesthetic condition that can impact both women and men. Causes may include aging, genetics or weight gain. Submental fullness can make you look older and heavier than you actually are.
According to a 2015 survey conducted by the American Society of Dermatologic Surgery, 67% of people say they are bothered by submental fullness. Kybella has been the focus of global clinical development with more than 20 clinical studies.
How does Kybella work?
The active ingredient in Kybella is deoxycholic acid, a naturally occurring molecule in the body that aids in the breakdown and absorption of dietary fat. When injected into the fat beneath your chin, Kybella causes the destruction of fat cells. Once destroyed, those cells cannot store or accumulate fat. Kybella is a nonsurgical 20 minute in-office treatment. Most patients will require 2-4 treatments. Some people require up to 6 treatments to achieve results.
