Bothered by the Fullness Beneath Your Chin?
67% of people are! KYBELLA® is the answer to what healthcare providers call “Submental fullness”
Submental fullness due to fat beneath the chin can impact a broad range of both male and female adults. Some possible causes are:
- Weight Gain
Sometimes, even with diet or exercise, the condition may not go away, and it could make you appear older or heavier than you actually are.
KYBELLA® is the first and only FDA-approved injectable treatment to improve the appearance of moderate to severe fat beneath the chin by physically destroying fat cells.
How does KYBELLA® work?
- When injected into the area beneath your chin, KYBELLA® destroys fat cells. Once destroyed, those cells cannot store or accumulate fat.
- 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.
- Fat cleared from the treatment area is processed through your body’s natural metabolism.
Once the aesthetic response is achieved, further treatment with KYBELLA® is not expected.
79% of people treated with KYBELLA® in clinical studies had improved satisfaction with the appearance of the area beneath their chin.
How many KYBELLA® treatment sessions will I need?
- Your healthcare provider will help you determine how many treatment sessions you need based on the amount and distribution of your submental fat and your personal treatment goals.
- Up to 6 treatments may be administered, spaced no less than 1 month apart.
- 59% of people treated with KYBELLA® in clinical studies received 6 treatments.
