Many individuals have a double chin, which is also referred to as submental fullness. A double chin will form when the fat underneath the chin accumulates. It can be caused by a number of things, which include weight gain, genetics, and age. When exercise and diet are not effective for getting rid of a double chin, Kybella® is an excellent option that can effectively treat this condition.
What is Kybella®?
Kybella® was approved by the FDA in 2015 as a way to treat submental fullness in the chin area. Kybella® is made of a naturally-occurring substance that is known as deoxycholic acid. This substance can effectively absorb and break down fat in the chin area. When the fat cells in the chin area are destroyed, fat is no longer able to be stored in this area, which means the treatment may be permanent.
Many individuals will receive multiple treatments. Our team of professionals will be able to give you a personalized treatment plan when you visit us for your initial consultation.
Who are Ideal Candidates for Kybella®?
Ideal candidates for the procedure will be in good health and at a stable weight but with excess fat under the chin. In addition, it is also an ideal treatment for individuals who want to eliminate their double chin without having invasive surgery. If you have any medical conditions in your head or neck, it is important to let our staff know prior to the injections.
