Don’t Hide Your Double Chin, Get Rid of It!
If you have a double chin that you can’t make go away, you’re not alone. According to a 2015 survey conducted by the American Society for Dermatologic Surgery, 67% of people said they are bothered by the fat beneath their chin. Kybella can help.
Double chin, or submental fullness, can be caused by genetics, weight gain, or aging and can affect both men and women.
When injected into the fat beneath your chin, Kybella destroys fat cells. The active ingredient in Kybella is deoxycholic acid, a naturally occurring molecule in the body that aids in the breakdown and absorption of fat. The fat cleared from the treatment area is processed through your body’s natural metabolism.
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. You and your doctor will decide how many treatments you need. Once the desired aesthetic response is achieved with KYBELLA®, retreatment is not expected.
Before receiving KYBELLA®, tell your healthcare provider about all of your medical conditions, including if you: have had or plan to have surgery on your face, neck, or chin; have had cosmetic treatments on your face, neck or chin; have had or have medical conditions in or near the neck area; have had or have trouble swallowing; have bleeding problems; are pregnant or plan to become pregnant (it is not known if KYBELLA® will harm your unborn baby); are breastfeeding or plan to breastfeed (it is not known if KYBELLA® passes into your breast milk; talk to your healthcare provider about the best way to feed your baby if you receive KYBELLA®).
If you are bothered by your double chin, the best way to learn if Kybella is right for you is to schedule a consultation with our trained professionals to discuss treatment options.
The most common side effects are swelling, bruising, pain, numbness, redness and areas of hardness around the treatment area. Typically side effects with resolve themselves within a few weeks.
Treatment will depend on desired chin profile and treatment area. Typically it will take 2 – 4 treatments to get desired results of Kybella. A consultation with our trained professional will cover the amount of treatments needed.
Once desired outcome is achieved, retreatment is not expected.
