Submental fullness, sometime referred to as a ”double chin” is a common yet undertreated facial aesthetic condition which leads to an older and heavier look. Submental fullness is present in a broad range of adults, including both women and men. It is influenced by several factors, including aging, genetics and weight gain. It is often resistant to diet and exercise.
Kybella is the first and only FDA approved injectable drug indicated for the improvement in the appearance of moderate to severe convexity or fullness associated with submental fat in adults. When Kybella is injected into the subcutaneous fat, it causes the destruction of fat cells or adipocytes. Once destroyed those fat cells cannot store or accumulate fat. Once you schedule a consult we will be able to customize a treatment plan to meet your aesthetic goals for an improved chin profile. The number of treatments is dependent on your aesthetic goals, it usually can take two to six sessions. The most common reactions after treatment are swelling, bruising, discomfort, numbness and erythema which are temporary.
