Eliminate your Double Chin
We now have Kybella®!
Kybella® is deoxycholic acid a medication that is injected into the fat under the chin. It is the first and only injectable treatment for sub-mental fat (double chin) on the market. It is safe and effective.*
Why Do I have Neck Fat?
Common causes of submental fullness or fat under the chin is associated with aging, genetics, and weight gain. Possible underlying medical conditions could be thyroid disease or diseases of the head and neck such as periodontal disease, sleep apnea syndrome, pneumonia and hyoid bone degradation.
Aging can bring unfavorable changes that contribute to the appearance of submental fullness or fat accumulation under the neck. The accumulation of fat can be caused by skin laxity (lose skin) and weakness or stiffness of the platysma muscles in the neck.
Genetics can play a big part in our anatomy and our appearance, sometimes we just do not have control over how much fat we will accumulate under the chin.
Weight Gain is also a significant factor, everyone gains weight in certain areas of their bodies depending on their genetics. It can impact men and women and is resistant to diet and exercise alone. 67% of the population is plagued by under the chin fullness.
Kybella® causes adipocytolysis (destruction of fat cells), which ruptures the fat cells leading into reabsorption in the body. The fat cell dies and is gone forever.* Researchers looked at 165 people treated at 21 centers. Patients received 2 mg/cm2 deoxycholic acid in microinjections using a 30G needle every 2 mm across a grid pattern on the submental region. Patients received up to 6 sessions spaced 28 days apart.
Physicians and patients rated each treatment session as well as results 3 months after the final injection using a validated scale for mild, moderate, or severe submental fat appearance and found significant improvement.
Patients said they felt less bothered by their double chin, less self-conscious, and younger. Some felt they looked like they lost weight even thought their BMI and weight remained the same.*
Most patients (86%) reported they were “at least slightly satisfied” with their appearance and 94% reported they were satisfied with their treatment.*
Recently a clinical trial conducted in Miami Beach, Florida
How does Kybella work?
The medication is deoxycholic acid, a naturally occurring molecule in the body that aids in the Breakdown and absorption of dietary fat. It destroys fat cells that do not return.*
How many people have been treated with Kybella?
According to clinical trials over 2,600 people worldwide have been treated successfully.
Will I have any side effects?
The most common side effects are bruising, swelling, pain and numbness.* If not administered correctly other side effects may occur.*
How many treatments will I need?
According to clinical trails and how much fat you have under your chin you will see visible results in 2-4 treatments. Up to 6 treatments may be given spaced no less than 4 week apart.*
How long will the results last?
When injected into the fat under your chin, Kybella® causes the destruction of fat cells. Once destroyed those cells cannot store or accumulate fat. After the esthetic response is achieved, the fat cells will not return.*
