THE GAME CHANGER IN NON-SURGICAL TREATMENT OF SUBMENTAL FULLNESS
Have you been frustrated by submental fullness or the double chin you can’t seem to lose? Welcome to your solution with KYBELLA™, the first and only non-surgical treatment for the reduction of submental fullness. It is the first and only FDA-approved injectable drug that contours and improves the appearance of the double chin.
What is Submental Fullness?
Submental fullness, often referred to as “double chin,” is a common, yet often undertreated facial aesthetic condition. It can provide ongoing aesthetic frustration and detract from an otherwise balanced facial appearance – leading to an older, heavier look. Submental fullness can impact all types of adults, including both women and men, and can be caused by aging, dietary changes, genetics and weight gain.
How Does KYBELLA™ Work?
KYBELLA™ is a non-human and non-animal formulation of deoxycholic acid, a naturally-occurring molecule in the body that aids in the breakdown and absorption of dietary fat. When injected into subcutaneous fat tissue, KYBELLA™ causes the destruction of fat cells to the treated area. Once destroyed, these cells cannot continue to store or accumulate fat. After the desired aesthetic response is achieved, results remain intact and retreatment with KYBELLA™ is not expected.
How is KYBELLA™ Administered?
Treatment with KYBELLA™ is completely customizable for patients. Desired results will be discussed during consultation with your provider who will customize the treatment plan to fit those aesthetic goals for an improved chin profile. KYBELLA™ is administered by small injections into the fat under the chin. The safety and effectiveness of KYBELLA™ depends on the use of the correct number and locations for injections, proper needle placement and administration techniques. That is why it is very important to seek out a provider specifically trained in how to properly treat with KYBELLA™. Each in-office treatment session is typically 20-30 minutes with many patients experiencing visible results in two to four treatment sessions spaced one month or more apart. Up to 6 treatments may be required to achieve desired results.
What are the Results
In clinical trials, KYBELLA™ treatment resulted in high patient satisfaction – 79% of KYBELLA™-treated patients reported satisfaction with their appearance in association with their face and chin. Patients also reported improvement in the visual and emotional impact of submental fat when asked how happy, bothered, self-conscious, embarrassed, old and overweight they felt following treatment in relation to the amount of their submental fat.
