While many effective treatments are available for facial and neck rejuvenation, there is only one effective non-surgical way to correct a double chin. KYBELLA® is the only FDA-approved injectable that can improve the appearance of moderate to severe submental fat, more commonly known as a “double chin.”
The KYBELLA® deoxycholic acid injection safely reduces excess fat accumulation beneath the chin, effectively improving the contour of the chin and improving the appearance of the whole face and neck.
Submental fat can affect both men and women and may occur due to aging, genetics, and/or weight gain. KYBELLA® can reduce a double chin and effectively improve your appearance by removing submental fat. The number of KYBELLA® injections and the number of treatments can be customized to meet your individual anatomy, needs, and goals.
After injecting KYBELLA® into the fatty area under the neck, the deoxycholic acid breaks down the fat cells, and the body absorbs and removes them naturally. Killing these fat cells with deoxycholic acid prevents further fat accumulation and storage, leading to long-lasting results. While some patients may initially need multiple treatments, no retreatment is necessary once you have achieved your aesthetic desires. KYBELLA® injections are administered in-office and take only 15 to 20 minutes to complete. Most patients only report some swelling and mild tenderness which lasts for approximately 1-3 weeks, and they are able to resume their normal activities immediately.
The results of KYBELLA® injections take a little time to become noticeable. After the treatment session, the deoxycholic acid will break down the fat cells, which the body will then absorb and remove naturally. Your results will continue to improve over a period of four to six weeks, at which point additional treatments may be necessary to achieve your desired results. After KYBELLA® injections, the fat over the treatment area will be gone for good, and your face and neck will appear slimmer and more attractive. Most patients also report an improvement in self-image and confidence after the removal of a double chin.
