An injectable drug to improve the appearance of moderate to severe submental fullness – also referred to as “double-chin”.
KYBELLA® (deoxycholic acid) injection is indicated for the improvement in the appearance of moderate to severe convexity or fullness associated with submental fat in adults.
Utah law requires our Medical Director to do an initial consultation to review your medical history prior to any injectables being administered. Once this consultation has been completed you may return anytime within the year to receive injections from one of our Nurse Injectors. The $50 fee for your consult will be applied towards your service if you choose to move forward with treatment. This fee is non refundable if you do not proceed with service.
When injected into fat under the chin, KYBELLA® causes the destruction of fat cells. Once destroyed, those cells cannot store or accumulate fat. After reaching your desired aesthetic, further treatment is not expected
Your specialist will create a tailored treatment plan based on your chin profile. At each treatment, you will be given multiple small injections under your chin. You may receive up to 6 treatment sessions, spaced at least 1 month apart. Many patients experience visible results in 2 to 4 KYBELLA® treatments. 59% of patients received 6 treatments in clinical studies.
Submental fullness is a gathering of excess fat beneath the chin, commonly known as “double chin.” It can be something you’ve had your whole life due to genetics, or start to appear as you get older or if you gain weight.
The active ingredient in KYBELLA® is synthetic deoxycholic acid. Deoxycholic acid is a naturally occurring molecule in the body that aids in the breakdown and absorption of dietary fat. When injected into the fat beneath the chin, KYBELLA® destroys fat cells, and once destroyed, these cells can no longer store or accumulate fat. This results in a noticeable reduction in fullness under the chin, revealing an improved chin profile.
“I used to be a little heavier and my double chin was really obvious. But even after I lost the weight, it was still there.”
“The fact that KYBELLA® is an injectable treatment was a big plus, and I liked that treatment was tailored to me by my doctor.”
