For the many of us, excess fat under our chin is an unsightly burden no amount of crunches or cardio will transform. Thankfully, there is now an innovative new treatment called KYBELLA®.
What is KYBELLA®?
KYBELLA® is a synthetic form of deoxycholic acid, a fat-destroying substance that is naturally occurring in the body. As the first FDA-approved injectable solution specifically engineered to combat superficial neck fat, also called submental fat, KYBELLA® is uniquely poised to revolutionize how we redefine facial contours and achieve a sleeker, more streamlined jaw. KYBELLA®'s ability to remove double chin fat has been clinically proven: of the more than 2,600 participants across 20 clinical trials that included the use of KYBELLA®, the majority reported overwhelmingly positive results regarding both physical improvements in the amount of under-chin fat, as well as a boost in emotional well-being related to the loss of submental fat.
How Does KYBELLA® Work?
Your KYBELLA® treatment plan will be tailored to your individual needs. Generally, KYBELLA® is administered in a series of injections spaced over anywhere from two to six treatments, depending on several factors including the amount of fat to be dissolved. Each treatment session, which is typically comprised of anywhere from 12 to 20 injections, takes less than 20 minutes and pain is limited to a series of quick pricks, making it easy to schedule an appointment over your lunch break or between errands. Swelling and possible bruising will occur, but will start to fade within a couple weeks. The effects of KYBELLA® become apparent in four to six weeks and can last for years, eliminating the need for frequent "touch ups" and providing a life-changing, surgery-free alternative to patients seeking a long-lasting way to treat neck fat.
Who Can Benefit From KYBELLA®?
If you suffer from submental fullness, you know how frustrating it can be. There is only so much camouflage you can achieve through makeup, and without treatment that extra fat can leave you looking older or heavier than you actually are. Before KYBELLA®, the only way to get rid of a so-called double chin was through surgery. As the fat dissolves, a firmer, less saggy neck and beautifully contoured jaw line will be revealed, leaving you looking every bit as youthful and vibrant on the outside as you already feel on the inside.
