Kybella is an exciting new injectable procedure that has made it possible to non-invasively treat submental fat in certain patients without the need for surgery. Kybella (deoxycholic acid) injection is the first and only FDA-approved nonsurgical treatment that contours and improves the appearance of submental fullness, sometimes referred to as “double chin.” Accumulation of excess fat tissue in the submental area can cause the appearance of a double chin. This can make the chin poorly defined and adversely impact the overall facial aesthetics. The best result is achieved after 2-3 treatments with Kybella, and results can be permanent. If your double chin bothers you, see our provider at Fourth N Main Modern Aesthetics in Asbury Park, NJ for a consultation to see if Kybella would be a good treatment option.

    Kybella is a refined version of a substance called deoxycholic acid, which is naturally produced by your body. Deoxycholic acid’s primary role is assisting with fat absorption.
    It destroys fat cells wherever it is injected, causing them to be absorbed by the body. When injected into the fat beneath your chin, Kybella causes the destruction of fat cells. Once destroyed, those cells cannot store or accumulate fat. This makes Kybella an innovative and ideal new way for patients to gain some of the benefits of liposuction for a double chin without surgery. Prior to approval in May of 2015 by the Food and Drug Administration, Kybella was the subject of medical trials that included more than 1,000 individuals. The results showed that eight out of ten people who received Kybella had a loss of chin fat.
    Most people who have a double chin feel self-conscious about the fullness. To make matters worse, extra fat in this region may not go away with diet and exercise. A lot of individuals who struggle with double chins avoid liposuction for their problem because they worry about the costs, downtime, and invasiveness. Fortunately, Kybella offers a cutting-edge new way to solve double chins without these obstacles.
    Many patients experience visible contouring of their chin profile in two to four treatment sessions spaced at least one month apart on average. Once the desired aesthetic response is achieved with Kybella, re-treatment is not expected.
