What is KYBELLA®?
KYBELLA® is the first and only FDA – approved nonsurgical prescription medicine used in adults to improve the appearance and profile of moderate to severe fat below the chin (submental fat), also called “double chin.
What is submental fullness?
Submental fullness, sometimes referred to as “double chin”, is a common yet undertreated facial aesthetic condition. It can impact a broad range of adults, including both men and women, and can be influenced by several factors such as aging, genetics and weight gain, and is often resistant to diet and exercise alone.
How does KYBELLA® work?
The active ingredient in KYBELLA® is deoxycholic acid, a naturally-occurring molecule in the body that aids in the breakdown and absorption of dietary fat. When injected into the fat beneath your chin, KYBELLA® causes the destruction of fat cells. Once destroyed, those cells cannot store or accumulate fat.Treatment does not work the same for every patient, you and your nurse practioner will decide how many treatments you need.
How is KYBELLA® administered?
KYBELLA® is administered by injections into the fat under the chin. Each in-office treatment session is typically 15-20 minutes. Treatment with KYBELLA® is customized by the physician to the patient’s aesthetic goals for an improved chin profile. Up to six treatments, no less than one month apart, is recommended for the best results.
What are my results?
Many patients experienced visible results in two to four treatments. Most patients also reported improvement in the emotional impact of submental fat when asked how happy, bothered, self-conscious, embarrassed, old and overweight they felt following treatment in relation to the amount of their submental fat.
