About Double Chin (Medically Known as Submental Fullness)
Men and women may be affected by submental fullness which is caused by weight gain, genetics and aging. While you don’t have to be overweight to have a double chin, being overweight largely contributes to double chins. Despite the cause of fat under the chin, if you are bothered by submental fullness, you are not alone! In a survey conducted by the American Society of Dermatologic Surgery in 2015, 67% of people surveyed said that they are bothered by the fat beneath their chin.
What Kybella® Is
Kybella® is the only FDA-approved injectable treatment that destroys fat cells under the chin. It is a prescription medicine used in adults to approve the appearance of moderate to severe fat below the chin.
How Kybella® Destroys Your Double Chin
The active ingredient in Kybella® is a naturally occurring molecule in the body that aids in the breakdown and absorption of dietary fat. Once injected into the fat, Kybella® destroys the fat cell membranes so that they can no longer store fat in the cell. This results in a noticeable reduction of fullness under the chin. Because the cells are being destroyed, further treatment is not expected once you have reached your aesthetic goal.
