Looking to remove unwanted fat below your chin? KYBELLA™ is the first FDA approved prescription treatment for nonsurgical treatment to reduce moderate to severe fat below the chin. Now you have a solution for the commonly referred to area, “double chin”.
What is KYBELLA™?
KYBELLA™ is a prescription medicine that improves the appearance of the so called “double chin”. Patients who use KYBELLA™ see an improvement in the appearance of the submental fat or “double chin”. As we age, areas of our body begin to store unwanted fat. Notably, the “double chin” is affected by aging, genetics and/or weight gain, and it is one of those areas that affects both men and women. Up until now, there were limited options other than plastic surgery to remove the unwanted fat beneath your chin.
How Does KYBELLA™ work?
Deoxycholic acid is the active ingredient in KYBELLA™. It is naturally found in the human body and plays a pivotal role in managing fats. When KYBELLA™ is injected into the submental fat, the acid works to safely break down the membranes of the fat cells. As those cells breakdown, your body will remove them from the treated area. Typically, at least two treatments are needed to obtain optimal results. The treatments take approximately 15-20 minutes and are spaced about 4 weeks apart.
How Long Does KYBELLA™ Last?
The results gained with KYBELLA™ are permanent, because the fat below your chin won’t return. However, the contoured appearance of your neck may change if you gain a significant amount of weight. This could cause the fat cells that remain to get larger and, once again, create some fullness under the chin. However, since there are fewer fat cells, the fat will be proportionately less than you had before.
