Submental fat, otherwise known as a “double chin” can be caused by several factors, with a large percentage being genetic. With about 67% of people being bothered by the looks of their submental fat and not wanting to undergo surgical correction, Kybella is an excellent option. Kybella is a brand name for an injectable drug called deoxycholic acid, and it is FDA-approved for the treatment of submental (under the chin) fat. The accumulation of submental fat can lead to the appearance of a “double chin.”
KYBELLA® is administered as a series of injections to the treatment area under the chin, destroying fat cells and producing gradual results. Everyone’s chin profile is different, so the number of treatment sessions will vary based on the amount of fat under the chin and your treatment goals.
