Say Good-Bye To Your Double Chin!
Submental fullness (often referred to as a double chin) is a common issue that bothers nearly 68% of adults in the U.S. according to a survey conducted by the American Society for Dermatologic Surgery. 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. Unfortunately, it is often extremely resistant to diet and exercise alone.
What is KYBELLA?
The active ingredient in KYBELLA is deoxycholic acid, a naturally-occurring molecule in the body that aids in the breakdown and absorption of dietary fat. When injected into the fat pockets under the chin, KYBELLA causes the rapid destruction and absorption of fat cells. Once destroyed, those cells cannot store or accumulate fat. The fat that is cleared from the area is processed by the body’s natural metabolic process.
The procedure is non-invasive with minimal downtime or recovery required. Depending on each patient specific characteristics and goals, multiple treatments may be necessary.
After being treated with KYBELLA, patients reported feeling happier and younger based on their appearance, as well as less embarrassed, less self-conscious, less overweight, and less bothered by submental fullness.
