Kybella® is a newly released injectable approved by the FDA for reducing moderate to severe submental fullness, also known as a double-chin. The appearance of a double-chin was traditionally treated with cosmetic surgery. With Kybella®, patients can achieve youthful and healthy-looking results without the expense or downtime of surgery.
When Kybella® is injected, fat cells begin to dissolve and leave the body through metabolic processes. As Kybella® is absorbed by the targeted fat cells, a more desirable profile contour may be observed. For most patients, two to four treatment sessions are necessary to see results. These results are long lasting, sometimes permanent given the patient.
