Kybella – A Surgical Result Without the Surgery
Kybella is the first and only FDA-approved injectable that contours and improves the appearance of submental fullness due to submental fat.
Submental fullness is a result of submental fat, which is commonly found in the chin area and causes the look of a double chin. Until now, submental fullness has been a common but under treated facial aesthetic condition. In 2014, a survey conducted by the American Society for Dermatological Surgery determined that 2 out of 3 adults are bothered by submental fullness.
Kybella is a substance that has recently been approved by the FDA to treat the area around the front of the neck. It is a non-human, non-animal formula of deoxycholic acid, which is a naturally occurring substance found in the body. Deoxycholic acid naturally breaks down and absorbs body fat. Once injected, Kybella causes the destruction of fat cells.
The procedure is very mild – it consists of 2 or 3 injections given on a monthly basis, each appointment lasting 15-20 minutes. This procedure is a non-surgical fat reduction treatment and consists of injecting a substance called Kybella into the fat found in the chin area. Not only can this treatment dissolve fat, but it can significantly improve and treat a double chin.
