Say Goodbye to a double chin with KYBELLA™
Looking to improve the appearance of the dreaded “double chin”? Now there is a treatment that is specifically designed to contour and improve the appearance of submental fullness. This is the first and only FDA-approved nonsurgical treatment that is derived from deoxycholic acid, a naturally occurring molecule in the body that actually helps breakdown and absorb dietary fat. It essentially destroys the fat cells beneath the chin upon injection.
Who is it good for?
It is a common, yet undertreated facial aesthetic condition that can:
- Detract from an otherwise balanced and harmonious facial appearance
- Lead to an older and heavier look
- Impact a broad range of adults, including both women and men
- Be caused by aging, genetics and/or weight gain
According to a survey by the American Society for Dermatologic Surgery (ASDS), 68% of consumers are bothered by submental fullness—nearly as many as those bothered by lines and wrinkles around the eyes (71%)!
What should I expect?
Are there risks?
We all know it -and fear it- the presence of fat on the upper neck or under the chin, commonly known as (the dreaded) double-chin. Pockets of fat can be genetic, and can form despite weight or healthy eating. This contributes to an older and heavier overall look, and nobody wants that!
Recently FDA-approved Kybella is a new way to treat it. Made up of a naturally-occurring molecule, the treatment consists of a series of small injections to destroy the fat cells and tighten the neck.
