Kybella is an FDA approved nonsurgical treatment to remove submental fat or fat below the chin. It is an injectable treatment that dissolves fat permanently resulting in a sculpted and tighter chin profile.
Submental fullness, sometimes referred to as “double chin,” is a common, yet under treated facial aestetic condition. It can detract from an otherwise balanced and harmonious facial appearance – leading to an older and heavier look.
Submental fullness can impact a broad range of adults, including both women and men, and can be caused by aging, genetics and weight gain. According to a 2015 survey by the American Society for Dermatologic Surgery (ASDS), over 2/3 of consumers are bothered by submental fullness – nearly as many as those bothered by lines and wrinkles around the eyes.
When injected into the fat beneath your chin, Kybella destroys fat cells, permanently. Fat is cleared from the treatment area and is processed through your metabolism.
The active ingredient of Kybella is deoxycholic acid, a naturally occurring molecule in the body that aids in the breakdown and absorption of dietary fat. Kybella is administered as an injection into the fat tissue in the submental area. Most common side effects are bruising, swelling, pain, numbness, and small, firm areas around the injection sites, which resolves over time.
