For some people, the appearance of a double chin doesn’t disappear when they lose weight. Submental fullness (a double chin) can happen because of genetics or excess weight, and sometimes it remains visible in your profile even if you’ve lost a lot of weight. If submental fullness is bothersome to you and you’d like to see improved definition for your chin and neck area, KYBELLA® treatments may be the solution for you.
What is KYBELLA®?
KYBELLA® treatments are a non-surgical option for destroying fat cells under your chin to reduce that look of fullness and lack of definition. Your medical professional will inject KYBELLA® under your skin, which destroys fat cells in that treated area to leave your chin slimmer looking with a more defined profile.
How does KYBELLA® work?
KYBELLA® treatments have an active ingredient that is a synthetic version of deoxycholic acid, a molecule your body makes naturally to break down and absorb fat from your diet. When injected into the chin area, it permanently destroys the fat cells that give you that double chin look, and once you obtain your desired results, the extra fat is gone.
What can I expect during a KYBELLA® treatment?
KYBELLA® is administered using several small injections. The number of injections varies with each individual, so your medical specialist will determine how many injections you’ll need during your consultation appointment. The entire KYBELLA® treatment process takes about 15 to 20 minutes.
What happens after a KYBELLA® treatment?
Immediately after treatment, you may experience minor temporary swelling or bruising, and most people have minimal downtime.
How many treatments will I need?
For most people, it takes two or more treatments to see significant visible results from KYBELLA® treatments. You can have up to six treatments, all spaced one month apart, but not everyone needs that many – you stop treatment when you reach your desired results. Most people need two to four treatments, but this varies by how much fullness you wish to reduce, so your medical specialist will create a treatment plan to meet your goals.
Is KYBELLA® safe?
KYBELLA® treatments are a safe, non-surgical, FDA-approved treatment to remove excess fullness in adults. Over 1600 people were treated for the 20 clinical studies performed prior to FDA approval, which found KYBELLA® to be a safe and effective treatment.
How long do the results from KYBELLA® treatments last?
KYBELLA® permanently destroys fat cells, so they can no longer store fat. No further treatments are expected after you reach your goal for the treatment.
What kind of results can I expect from KYBELLA® treatments?
People who have had KYBELLA® treatments report a slimmer, more youthful appearance. A more defined jawline improves the appearance of your profile. If you were previously bothered by the appearance of a double chin, the results can also make you feel better and improve your confidence level.
