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, and is often resistant to diet and exercise alone.
Lose Your Double Chin
If you’re bothered by submental fullness, you’re not alone. According to a 2015 survey conducted by the American Society for Dermatologic Surgery (ASDS):
How It Works
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 beneath your chin, causes the destruction of fat cells. Once destroyed, those cells cannot store or accumulate fat.
You and your doctor will decide how many treatments you need. Many patients experience visible results in 2 to 4 treatment sessions. During these sessions, your Provider will administer KYBELLA into the fat under your chin using multiple injections. Treatment sessions are 4-6 weeks apart. Once the desired aesthetic response is achieved with KYBELLA, retreatment is not expected.
Before receiving KYBELLA, tell your healthcare provider about all of your medical conditions, including if you: have had or plan to have surgery on your face, neck, or chin; have had cosmetic treatments on your face, neck or chin; have had or have medical conditions in or near the neck area; have had or have trouble swallowing; have bleeding problems; are pregnant or plan to become pregnant (it is not known if KYBELLA will harm your unborn baby); are breastfeeding or plan to breastfeed (it is not known if KYBELLA passes into your breast milk; talk to the Allura providers about the best way to feed your baby if you receive KYBELLA).
