Do you look older or heavier than you desire due to puffiness or fat under the chin?
If you’re looking for an effective and non-surgical treatment KYBELLA® might be right for you.
The first and only FDA approved injectable drug that contours and improves the appearance of submental fullness under the chin, commonly known as double-chin
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, so further treatment is not expected once you reach your desired aesthetic goal. This results in a noticeable reduction in fullness under the chin, revealing an improved chin profile.
It’s great that Kybella is a non-surgical and minimally invasive procedure, it is quick and easy. Kybella works for the aging person that is seeing heaviness in the jaw to get the triangle of youth back as opposed to the triangle of aging.
Before beginning treatment, we will examine the area under and around the chin to determine if KYBELLA® is right for you. Then we will tailor a treatment designed for your aesthetic goals. The treatemnt consists of multiple small injections under your chin and is complete in 15-20 minutes. You will likely experience some swelling, bruising, or numbness under your chin. Be sure to inform your healthcare professional if you develop an uneven smile, facial muscle weakness, or difficulty swallowing.
Most plans require between 1 to 3 treatments given at least 1 month apart.
KYBELLA® can cause serious side effects, including nerve injury in the jaw that can temporarily cause an uneven smile or facial muscle weakness (experienced by 4 out of 100 people in clinical studies) and trouble swallowing (experienced by 2 out of 100 people in clinical studies). In clinical studies, nerve injury in the jaw resolved on its own in a median of 44 days (range of 1 to 298 days), and trouble swallowing resolved on its own in a median of 3 days (range of 1 to 81 days).
The most common side effects occur in the treatment area and include: Swelling, Bruising, Pain, Numbness, Redness, Areas of hardness. Side effects are usually temporary and often resolve on their own.
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.
