BOTHERED BY A DOUBLE CHIN? YOU’RE NOT ALONE

According to a survey conducted by the American Society for Dermatologic Surgery, 67% of people said they are bothered by the fat beneath their chin, or what your healthcare provider may refer to as “submental fullness associated with submental fat.”

WHAT IS KYBELLA®?

KYBELLA® is a prescription medicine used in adults to improve the appearance and profile of moderate to severe fat below the chin (submental fat), also called “double chin.”

HOW DOES KYBELLA® WORK?

When injected into the fat 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.

HOW IS KYBELLA® ADMINISTERED?

KYBELLA® is given during an in-office visit. The injection process may take 15 to 20 minutes. Your healthcare provider will give you a series of injections into the fat under your chin at each treatment session.

WHAT CAN I EXPECT AFTER MY TREATMENT SESSION?

For most of our patients, downtime occurred most commonly after the first treatment session. You should be able to resume your normal daily activities but are likely to have swelling, so keep your social plans and work commitments in mind when scheduling your treatment. At Dr. Koo Private Practice,  we may apply ice/cold packs or topical and/or injectable local anaesthesia to the treatment area before your session to make you more comfortable. We also recommend our patients take an over-the-counter pain reliever before your appointment.

After treatment, apply ice or a cold pack to the treatment area for 10 to 15 minutes, as needed.

KYBELLA® MIGHT BE FOR YOU IF:

  • You’re bothered by fat under the chin, also known as submental fullness
  • You don’t want surgery
  • You feel the condition makes you look older or heavier than you actually are
  • You eat well and exercise, but submental fullness does not go away
