Kybella is the first injectable treatment used for the reduction of submental fullness caused by excess fat under the chin and neck.
Kybella injections are performed in a series of treatments to reduce the excess fat over time, effectively dissolving the fat, which your body slowly removes. The main ingredient in Kybella is a substance called deoxycholic acid. This active ingredient helps them to break down and absorb the fat cells to be flushed out of the body over time. With a series of treatments, patients can experience a noticeable reduction in fullness and may even see some mild tightening of the skin.
Anyone who is bothered by the appearance of a double chin can benefit from this injection. However, this treatment is intended for those who have excess fat causing the fullness and not loose skin. Loose skin in the absence of excess fat cannot be treated by Kybella. Many people with fullness under their chin feel that it makes them look heavier or older than they really are. Even patients who eat well and exercise regularly can experience fullness in the chin and neck due to genetics. Although surgery can also be used to treat this area, Kybella can be done with no downtime in the office.
The recommended treatment plan ranges from 1-3 treatments, performed 4-6 weeks apart.
