Submental fullness, a common cosmetic concern, can be seen in men and women and may be related to aging, weight gain, and genetics. Kybella, or deoxycholic acid, injection is approved by the FDA for the treatment of submental fullness or “double chin”.
With over 20 clinical studies supporting its use, and thousands of patients already treated, Kybella is a safe, effective, and well-researched treatment for submental fullness.
Minimal swelling and bruising for one or few days that can be treated with Ice and arnica.
How the medication work? Deoxycholic acid is a naturally occurring molecule in the body that breaks down dietary fat and aids in its absorption. Kybella is a synthetic version of deoxycholic acid. When injected into the fat underneath the skin, it causes destruction of fat cells.
The results are permanent as the fat cells are eliminated.
No scaring, no downtime or need to use elastic bandage for weeks. Less trauma to the tissue around and less chance of complications.
Chin liposuction is little more invasive procedure, but there is permanent destruction of fat cells with only 1 treatment.
Ultherapy is used for skin tightening and ideally is used in conjunction with Kybella for superior results.
