The FDA has approved just one injectable treatment to conquer under-chin fat, also called submental fullness.

It is common for the body to pack excess fat under the chin, like you might store your extra stuff in the attic. This can have a number of causes, including genetics, yo-yo dieting or major weight loss or gain, and simple aging. Kybella® is a safe, effective, and surgery-free way to fix this problem.

Kybella® is injectable, which is advantageous for those who choose it to get rid of their double chin and look slimmer. These advantages include:

  • Jawline contouring
  • bra fat removal
  • chin fat removal
  • love handles fat removal
  • abdomen fat removal
  • thigh fat removal
  • Lessen stubborn chin fat without injury to surrounding tissues
  • Results are permanent
  • Very little downtime
  • Outpatient procedure that does not use anesthesia
  • Costs much less than cosmetic surgery, which is not covered by insurance

What Should I Expect With Kybella®?

Treatment sessions are quick, just 15 to 20 minutes each. A micro-needle injects Kybella® into the area, causing little discomfort. No downtime is necessary because Kybella® is such an exact treatment, pinpointing only the fat cells in the double chin area, not harming any surrounding tissues. Following your first treatment, Kybella® begins to cause the fat cells to rupture, and the waste left over is absorbed by your body.The number of injections and sessions required depends on how much fat there is, but patients usually need 1 to 3 treatment sessions, about six weeks apart. Once the result you want is achieved, treatment sessions stop and are not repeated later. Results start to become visible a few weeks following your first treatment.

Is Kybella® Right for You?

Are you troubled or ashamed by fat under your chin? Do you appear heavier or older than you are? Do you want to avoid surgery? Do you exercise and have a healthy diet, yet your submental fullness remains?

How Does Kybella® Work?

Kybella’s® active ingredient is synthetic deoxycholic acid. Your body already creates deoxycholic acid in order to break down and absorb fat from the food you eat. Injecting Kybella® beneath the chin destroys the fat, slimming it down. When destroyed, these cells can no longer store or collect fat, which means that once you have attained the level of slimming you want, further treatment is not necessary.

What Should I Expect with Kybella®?

Your clinician at Glow Medspa will start by examining your chin and neck to decide if Kybella® is the right choice for you. The clinician will then fit your treatment to your specific needs and goals.
