Do you have extra fullness under your chin? Submental fullness, aka “double chin” can be caused by weight gain, aging, and even genetics. Submental fullness is not something only overweight people deal with. The condition can be genetic. No matter how much exercising and dieting you do, it may not go away. Luckily, there is an injectable treatment that can destroy the fat cells under your chin to improve your profile without surgery. Kybella® is the first and only FDA-approved injectable treatment that contours and improves the appearance of submental fullness. The active ingredient in Kybella®, deoxycholic acid, aids in the breakdown and absorption of dietary fat. When Kybella® is injected into the fat beneath the chin, it destroys the fat cells. Once the cells are destroyed, they can no longer store fat. This means once you reach your desired look, you will not need more treatments. However, it is possible you will need multiple treatments in order to reach your goal. The amount of fat under the chin is different for everyone, so the number of treatments needed varies from patient to patient. If you are bothered by your “double chin”, but want to avoid the surgery route, Kybella® may be the right treatment option for you!
