ABOUT SUBMENTAL FULLNESS
Do you have some extra fullness beneath your chin? Maybe it's something you've had your whole life, something that developed over the years, or something you noticed recently. This is a condition called submental fullness, which some people refer to as “double chin."
WHAT CAUSES SUBMENTAL FULLNESS?
Both men and women may be affected by submental fullness, which can be caused by:
You don't have to be overweight to have fullness under your chin. And sometimes, no matter how much you exercise or diet, the condition may not go away.
BOTHERED BY SUBMENTAL FULLNESS?
You're not alone. According to a 2015 survey conducted by the American Society for Dermatologic Surgery (ASDS):
67% OF PEOPLE SURVEYED SAID THEY ARE BOTHERED BY THE FAT BENEATH THEIR CHIN*
In fact, the survey results showed that people are just as bothered by submental fullness as they are by lines and wrinkles around and under their eyes.*
KYBELLA® is the first FDA-approved non-surgical treatment for unwanted chin fat. Kybella is delivered to the treatment area over a series of 3 treatments to help reduce unwanted fat in the treatment area. It is a non-surgical, 15-20 minute in office procedure customized to your specific needs. Kybella destroys fat cells when injected into the fat beneath your chin. Once the aesthetic goal is achieved, retreatment is not expected.
Submental fullness, also referred to as a “double chin,” is a common yet undertreated facial aesthetic condition that can impact a broad range of adults, including both men and women. Causes for submental fullness may include natural aging process, genetics, and/or weight gain. For some, regardless of how much you diet or exercise, the condition may not go away, and can make you look older and heavier than you really are.
***Before receiving KYBELLA®, please let the provider know about all of your medical conditions, including if you: Have had or plan to have surgery on your face, neck, or chin; have had cosmetic treatments on your face, neck, or chin; have had or have medical conditions in or near the neck area; have had or have trouble swallowing; have bleeding problems; are pregnant or plan to become pregnant (it is not known if KYBELLA® will harm your unborn baby); are breastfeeding or plan to breastfeed (it is not known if KYBELLA® passes into your breast milk).
HOW MANY KYBELLA® TREATMENT SESSIONS WILL I NEED?
Since everyone's chin profile is different, the number of treatments varies from patient to patient. Your healthcare specialist will help determine how many treatment sessions you need based on the amount and distribution of your submental fat and your personal treatment goals. Each KYBELLA® treatment session is given at least 1 month apart, and you should not receive more than 6 treatments. In clinical studies, 59% of patients received 6 treatments.
