Double Chin Treatments
KYBELLA® is the only FDA-approved injectable treatment that destroys fat cells in the treatment area under the chin to improve your profile.
How KYBELLA® works
The active ingredient in KYBELLA® is synthetic deoxycholic acid. Deoxycholic acid is a naturally occurring molecule in the body that aids in the breakdown and absorption of dietary fat. When injected into the fat beneath the chin, KYBELLA® destroys fat cells, resulting in a noticeable reduction in fullness under the chin. Once destroyed, these cells can no longer store or accumulate fat, so further treatment is not expected once you reach your desired aesthetic goal.
What to expect with KYBELLA®
Before starting treatment, your healthcare specialist will examine the area under and around your chin to determine if KYBELLA® is right for you. Then, your specialist will tailor your treatment to the amount of fat under the chin and your aesthetic goals.
ABOUT SUBMENTAL FULLNESS
Do you have some extra fullness beneath your chin? Maybe it’s something you’ve had your whole life, something that developed over the years, or something you noticed recently. This is a condition called submental fullness, which some people refer to as “double chin.”
What causes submental fullness?
Both men and women may be affected by submental fullness, which can be caused by:
You don’t have to be overweight to have fullness under your chin. And sometimes, no matter how much you exercise or diet, the condition may not go away.
Bothered by submental fullness?
You’re not alone. According to a 2015 survey conducted by the American Society for Dermatologic Surgery (ASDS):
67% OF PEOPLE SURVEYED SAID THEY ARE BOTHERED BY THE FAT BENEATH THEIR CHIN*
In fact, the survey results showed that people are just as bothered by submental fullness as they are by lines and wrinkles around and under their eyes.*
