Is KYBELLA Right for Me?

KYBELLA is one of the newest and most popular treatments being offered at SkinSpirit. KYBELLA is the only FDA-approved, non-surgical solution to a double chin. Are you bothered by a double chin? Do you eat well and exercise, but your double chin wont go away? Is surgery not an option for you? If you answered yes to any of these questions, KYBELLA might be the right treatment for you.

What causes submental fullness?

In order to understand what KYBELLA is and what it treats, it’s important to understand what submental fullness is. Submental fullness, sometimes referred to as “double chin,” is a common, yet under treated facial aesthetic condition that can impact a broad range of adults. Causes for submental fullness may include:

  • Aging – It may naturally develop as you age
  • Genetics – Simply said, it may be a part of your DNA
  • Weight Gain – It may be the result of gaining weight

For some, regardless of the amount of exercise or dieting, submental fullness may not go away. According to a 2015 survey conducted by the American Society for Dermatologic Surgery (ASDS), 67% of patients are bothered by submental fullness.

So how does Kybella treat submental fullness?

KYBELLA is the first and only FDA-approved, non-surgical treatment that contours and improves the appearance of submental fullness. This 15 to 20 minute in-office treatment is customized to help you achieve your desired goals. KYBELLA destroys fat cells when injected into the fat beneath the chin. Once the series of KYBELLA injections has been complete, retreatment is not expected.

So how does KYBELLA work? KYBELLA is a naturally-occurring molecule in the body (deoxycholic acid) that aids in the breakdown and absorption of dietary fat. When injected into the fat beneath the chin, KYBELLA causes destruction of fat cells. Once destroyed, those cells are no longer able to store or accumulate fat.

After being treated with KYBELLA, patients reported feeling happier and younger based on their appearance. Other positive outcomes included less embarrassment and higher self-confidence. Many patients treated with KYBELLA have experienced visible contouring of their chin profile within two to four treatments.
