KYBELLA FOR SUBMENTAL FULLNESS
Do you have fullness beneath your chin? Maybe you have had it your whole life, maybe you have developed it over the years or you are just starting to notice it. This is called submental fullness, which some refer to as “double chin.”
WHAT CAUSES SUBMENTAL FULLNESS?
Weight Gain Genetics Aging
Being overweight isn’t necessary to have submental fullness. And sometimes, no matter how much you exercise or diet, the condition will not go away.
KYBELLA® MAY BE RIGHT FOR YOU IF:
Your submental fullness causes you unhappiness, self-consciousness, or embarassment.
You feel that you look older or heavier than you actually are
You don’t want to have surgery
You eat well and exercise, but submental fullness does not go away
Before starting treatment, Dr. Parbhu will examine the area under and around your chin to determine if the KYBELLA® is right for you. Then, she will tailor your treatment to the amount of fat under the chin and your aesthetic goals.
The active ingredient in KYBELLA® is synthetic deoxycholic acid. This is a naturally occurring molecule in the body that aids in the breakdown and absorption of dietary fat. When injected into the fat beneath the chin, KYBELLA® destroys fat cells, resulting in a noticeable reduction in fullness under the chin. Once destroyed, these cells can no longer store or accumulate fat, so further treatment is not expected once you reach your desired aesthetic goal.
