Kybella® To Improve The Appearance of Your Double Chin
Introducing Kybella®, to improve the appearance of your double chin. Ask Dr. Hacker if you are a candidate.
KYBELLA® is a prescription medicine used in adults to improve the appearance and profile of moderate to severe fat below the chin (submental fat), also called “double chin.”
How It Works
The active ingredient in KYBELLA® is deoxycholic acid, a naturally-occurring molecule in the body that aids in the breakdown and absorption of dietary fat. When injected into the fat beneath your chin, KYBELLA causes the destruction of fat cells. Once destroyed, those cells cannot store or accumulate fat. You and your doctor will decide how many treatments you need. Once the desired aesthetic response is achieved with KYBELLA, retreatment is not expected.
About “Double Chin” or Submental Fullness
Submental fullness, sometimes referred to as “double chin”, is a common yet undertreated facial aesthetic condition. It can impact a broad range of adults, including both men and women, and can be influenced by several factors such as aging, genetics and weight gain, and is often resistant to diet and exercise alone. If you’re bothered by submental fullness, you’re not alone. According to a 2015 survey conducted by the American Society for Dermatologic Surgery (ASDS):
• 67% of people said they’re bothered by under-the-chin fullness, or double chin.
• People are just as bothered by under-the-chin fullness as they are by lines and wrinkles around and under their eyes.
