Do you look overweight or older because of your double chin?
Now look great right down to your chinny-chin-chin.
Kybella® is the first and only FDA-approved injection to improve the appearance of excessive fat below the chin, also known as “double chin”. When injected, the active ingredient in Kybella permanently dissolves fat cells in the double chin area over the course of weeks to months.
We understand that many factors beyond your control, such as family genetics and aging, can cause a double chin. Sometimes no matter how much you diet and exercise, you cannot get rid of that excess fat. Before Kybella was approved, the only effective treatment option was surgical liposuction.
For non-invasive facial treatment, patients may choose Kybella for fat removal. The injectable treatment can slim the face for a more defined profile and appearance.
The removal of a double chin used to require invasive surgery that was expensive and required more down time than an injectable approach. Now, there is a solution for double chin reduction that does not involve surgery. It is a simple injectable drug called Kybella, which has just been approved for cosmetic use by the Food and Drug Administration.
A proprietary formulation of a synthetic version of deoxycholic acid, Kybella is an injectable drug that can get rid of double chin. Deoxycholic acid is naturally produced by the liver and stored in the gall bladder and helps break down dietary fat. Kybella injections harness these properties to destroy the membranes of fat cells, which are then absorbed by the body. It is, in essence, a fat melter that can be the non-surgical solution to double chin removal.
The FDA approved drug now offers a non-surgical approach to patients seeking double chin reduction. Currently, it is only approved for the chin area and it must be applied by skilled professional. To safely remove double chin, the doctor has to inject Kybella directly into fat cells. Kybella is a huge breakthrough in non-invasive double chin removal. Patients can see results in as little as a few days as fat begins to melt away.
