Have you tried exercise and dieting to get rid of that stubborn double chin? KYBELLA™ injections are the first and only FDA-approved injectable that contours and improves the appearance of submental fullness. The injection uses a naturally occurring molecule that disrupts fat cells. This simple, non-surgical injection, helps provide a safe alternative to using liposuction to remove the submental fullness.

What is Submental Fullness?
Submental Fullness is also known as a double chin. This condition of fat deposits under the skin is common, yet undertreated. Submental Fullness is not only caused by being overweight, it can also be influenced by genetics, age and sex. This stubborn condition is often resistant to diet and exercise.
The KYBELLA™ Procedure
The in-office procedure involves injecting KYBELLA™ in the under-chin area. The quick procedure will last up to 30 minutes and each session will be at least 1 month apart. You may experience swelling, redness, tenderness and bruising on the injection sites for 3-7 days. The temporary side effects are common of injectable treatments.
The double chin eliminating effect with KYBELLA™ is expected to be permanent after completing your sessions.
