KYBELLA® is a non-surgical chin contouring injection treatment option to redefine the chin and jawline in patients with mild skin laxity and moderate to severe submental fullness.
What is "Submental Fullness"?
Submental fullness, sometimes referred to as “double chin”, is the presence of noticeable fatty fullness directly beneath the chin. It is common in both men and women and is influenced by several factors including aging, genetics and weight gain.
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):
- 67% of people said they’re bothered by under-the-chin fullness, or double chin
- People are just as bothered by under-the-chin fullness as they are by lines and wrinkles around and under their eyes
How KYBELLA® Cosmetic 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, KYBELLA® causes the destruction of fat cells. Once destroyed, those cells cannot return. Most patients require two or more treatments, separated by 6 to 8 weeks. Once the desired aesthetic response is achieved with KYBELLA®, it is possible that additional treatments may never be required.
