KYBELLA® injection is the first and only FDA-approved injectable treatment that contours and improves the appearance of this submental fullness, destroying fat cells. 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. Submental fullness is often resistant to diet and exercise alone.
How many treatment sessions will I need?
Your provider will help you determine how many treatment sessions you need based on the amount and distribution of your submental fat and your personal treatment goals. Many patients experience visible results in 2 to 4 treatment sessions. Up to 6 treatment sessions may be administered spaced no less than one month apart.
How does Kybella work?
When injected into the fat beneath your chin, Kybella destroys fat cells. Once destroyed, those cells cannot store or accumulate fat. The active ingredient in Kybella is a naturally occurring molecule in the body that aids in the breakdown and absorption of dietary fat. Fat cleared from the treatment area is processed through your body’s natural metabolism.
