What is Submental fullness?
Submental fullness, sometimes referred to as “double chin”, is a common yet undertreated facial aesthetic condition. It is seen in a broad range of men and women, and is often resistant to diet and exercise alone.
How is submental fullness treated?
KYBELLA® (deoxycholic acid) injection is the first and only FDA-approved injectable treatment that contours and improves the appearance of submental fullness.
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.
What can I expect?
During your treatment sessions, your Practitioner will inject KYBELLA® into the fat under your chin. Many patients experience visible results after 2 to 4 treatment sessions. If a lot of fat is present, up to 6 treatment sessions may be administered spaced no less than one month apart.
