Though not a dermal filler, Kybella® is an injectable treatment focused on submental fullness (aka double chin). Unlike fillers that add volume, Kybella® works to reduce it. Kybella® features synthetic deoxycholic acid, which helps break down and absorb fat. When injected under the jaw, it can help reduce the appearance of a double chin. Typically, six treatment sessions, spaced at least one month apart, are needed. However, results are permanent (so long as you maintain a proper diet).
What Is KYBELLA®?
Submental fullness can be due to genetics, weight gain, aging, diet, and exercise alone may not help. KYBELLA® uses a synthetic acid that aids in the breakdown and absorption of dietary fat. It is administered as a series of injections into the fat under the chin and once those cells are destroyed, they can no longer store or accumulate fat. This may benefit someone who feels like it is hard for them to get rid of stubborn facial fat and is looking for an alternative that doesn’t result in major surgery. Since this is a treatment that is non-surgical it may be a great option.
What Can I Expect From Treatments?
KYBELLA® is FDA-cleared for fat cells in the submental area under the chin. When injected, KYBELLA® effectively destroys fat cells, easing the appearance of submental fat that has accumulated under your chin. This injectable treatment results in a noticeable reduction in fullness and a more defined profile. Once destroyed, chin fat can no longer be stored or accumulated at the injection site, so further treatment is not expected once you reach your desired goals. If you struggle with excess fat and skin under your jaw, KYBELLA® can help reduce its size and quantity.
KYBELLA® Chin Fat Reduction Results
The number of treatment sessions will vary from patient to patient based on the amount of fat under the chin and your treatment goals. Most patients require a minimum of 2 treatments spaced 6 to 8 weeks apart to achieve their desired results and report seeing results after three months.
