Extra fullness under the chin can occur in anyone, not just the overweight. Despite exercise and healthy diet, sometimes fat stubbornly clings under the chin--there is no way to work it off. That’s where KYBELLA® comes in! KYBELLA® is a safe and effective treatment that improves your chin profile. KYBELLA® is the only FDA-approved injectable treatment used to improve the appearance of fat found under the chin.
KYBELLA® uses synthetic deoxycholic acid to target and eliminate fat cells under the chin area. Occurring naturally in the body, deoxycholic acid is a substance in the body that aids in the breakdown and absorption of fat cells. This synthetic version is injected beneath the chin, where it destroys the fat cells. Once destroyed, the cells can no longer accumulate and store fat, which negates the need for further treatment. In addition, deoxycholic acid stimulates the production of collagen in your body. Over 90% of patients report similar or improved skin elasticity post-treatment.
Everyone’s chin profile is different, so the number of necessary treatments varies based on how your end goals. Your Nurse Injector will determine how many treatment sessions are necessary by measuring the amount and distribution of submental fat, and taking into account your own personal goals. Many patients see visible results after only 2-4 sessions.
You will want to space your KYBELLA® treatments at least one month apart, not exceeding more than 6 treatments total. During each treatment you will receive multiple small injections at the site. This entire process takes no more than 15-20 minutes.
Common post-treatment side effects of KYBELLA® include swelling, bruising, redness, or numbness under the chin. These side effects will usually subside within a few days time. Inform your provider if you develop an uneven smile, notice facial muscle weakness, or experience difficulty swallowing.
KYBELLA® treatments are intended as a gradual process, administered as a series of injections under the chin. Your physician will personalize the number of sessions required, based on the amount of fat under the chin, as well as your treatment goals.
KYBELLA’s active ingredient is synthetic deoxycholic acid. When injected into adipose tissue under the shelf of the chin, fat cells are permanently destroyed. This synthetic acid needs only be injected once, as the destruction of the structure of the fat cells themselves ensures that they will no longer be able to store or accumulate fat. When your aesthetic goals are reached, no further treatment is required.
The 15-20 minute process consists of receiving multiple tiny injections under the chin area. You will work with your provider to determine your desired look. The number of injections necessary will depend on your goal, as well as the amount of fat present in the area.
