KybellaIs there anything worse than a double chin? It makes your face look fuller, rounder, and older than it really is, and even worse, you can’t get rid of it with diet and exercise. There was no way to reduce a double chin that didn’t involve a surgical commitment—until now. Thanks to a revolutionary new injectable, you now have the ability to remedy that double chin using Kybella®, the first FDA-approved non-surgical injectable treatment for the double chin.

What’s a Double Chin?

The source for all your double chin woes is something called submental fat, a layer of fat that can be found underneath your chin. Submental fullness is when there’s so much extra fat underneath your chin that it changes your profile—essentially, a double chin. Anything from genetics, aging, weight gain, and who knows what else can cause submental fullness.

Keep Your Chin Up, Because There’s Kybella®

Kybella® is an injectable, meaning it’s non-invasive and nonsurgical. The treatments only take about a half an hour, and the average patient takes 2-4 Kybella® treatments spaced 1 month apart to get maximum results.

How Does It Work?

Kybella® is a solution of deoxycholic acid, a natural chemical found in the body that helps burn fat. Once Kybella® is injected under the chin, it eliminates fat cells in the submental fat. Not reduction—but complete and utter destruction. Kybella® results are permanent because these fat cells are destroyed, then naturally flushed from the body. After that, these fat cells won’t keep storing new layers of fat.

How Safe Is It?

Some patients experience temporary side effects like swelling, bruising, pain, numbness, and soreness at the injection site. However, since Kybella® is non-surgical, there is no downtime or recovery time required. You can get it done right there, in your doctor’s office. Kybella® has been extensively clinically tested: Kybella® has been used in more than 20 studies around the globe involving more than 1600 people.

Who’s The Perfect Candidate?

Kybella® is the perfect treatment if you have great skin elasticity. If you have a lot of excess skin, fat, or muscle in the neck, then surgical treatment might bring about better results.

Although it’s not surgical, administering injectables like Kybella® still need finesse and artistic skill. Megan Spivey, RN and Angela Goodwin, RN have had extensive training and have been treating patients with Kybella® since its release into the market. Want to get the best Kybella® results?
