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. Given the patient, these results are long lasting and sometimes permanent.
