WHAT CAUSES SUBMENTAL FULLNESS?

BOTHERED BY SUBMENTAL FULLNESS?
You’re not alone. According to a 2015 survey conducted by the American Society for Dermatologic Surgery (ASDS): 67% OF PEOPLE SURVEYED SAID THEY ARE BOTHERED BY THE FAT BENEATH THEIR CHIN.*
In fact, the survey results showed that people are just as bothered by submental fullness as they are by lines and wrinkles around and under their eyes.*
*American Society for Dermatologic Surgery 2015 Consumer Survey on Cosmetic Dermatologic Procedures (N=7,315); Exact survey language was, “How bothered are you by excess fat under the chin/neck?” 69% of people responded they were bothered to the question: “How bothered are you by lines/wrinkles around/under the eyes?”
What is KYBELLA®?
KYBELLA® is a prescription medicine and is the only FDA-approved injectable treatment used in adults to improve the appearance and profile of moderate to severe fat below the chin (submental fat), also called “double chin.”
HOW DOES KYBELLA® WORK?
The active ingredient in KYBELLA® is synthetic deoxycholic acid. Deoxycholic acid is a naturally occurring molecule in the body that aids in the breakdown and absorption of dietary fat. When injected into the fat beneath the chin, KYBELLA® destroys fat cells, and once destroyed, these cells can no longer store or accumulate fat. This results in a noticeable reduction in fullness under the chin, revealing an improved chin profile.
HOW MANY TREATMENTS WILL I NEED?
Your specialist will create a tailored treatment plan based on your chin profile. At each treatment, you will be given multiple small injections under your chin. You may receive up to 6 treatment sessions, spaced at least 1 month apart. Many patients experience visible results in 2 to 4 KYBELLA® treatments.
HOW LONG WILL RESULTS LAST?
When injected into fat under the chin, KYBELLA® causes the destruction of fat cells. Once destroyed, those cells cannot store or accumulate fat. After reaching your desired aesthetic, further treatment is not expected.
