The only FDA-approved Injection that Reduces Submental Fat (Double Chin)
Fullness underneath the chin can distort one’s profile, and even ruin a perfectly good selfie. Even patients that work out and eat right have said they’re self-conscious about their double chin. How is it that you can be doing everything right, but not see a slimmer result in that area?
It’s no fault of the patient because it is hereditary. That little fat pouch under the chin is apparent in most people and there is usually no way to diet and exercise it away.
That’s why we have introduced KYBELLA® . The only injectable treatment clinically proven to dissolve the fat underneath the chin (submental fat).
What is KYBELLA® ?
A synthetic form of deoxycholic acid is used in this injectable treatment. Deoxycholic acid is a naturally occurring molecule in the body that breaks down fat cells, and when injected under the chin, it dissolves the unwanted fat. Once these cells are destroyed they will not return. Since this treatment is non-surgical there is little to no downtime, and normal activities can be resumed right away. However, there might be some bruising, swelling and/or numbness post-treatment.
What to Expect
During the treatment a topical numbing cream may be applied prior to the injections. The amount of injections administered depends on how much submental fat is under the chin. You will receive multiple injections during each session, and multiple treatments sessions may be recommended. Treatment times only take about 15 to 20 minutes to complete. As stated above, there may be some bruising, swelling and/or numbness which usually resolves itself within a week.
Am I a Candidate?
A good candidate for this procedure should be at their ideal weight with a healthy lifestyle of diet and exercise and should also attend a consultation to determine how many sessions will be needed to achieve optimal results. You must be 18 years of age or older with no major health issues.
How many treatments do I need?
Every person’s chin profile is different with a varying amount of fat cells. This means that multiple treatment sessions may be recommended. The best way to find out how many sessions is needed is by scheduling a complimentary consultation with one of our providers.
