Because of the extremely limited options for correction, submental fat has been an under-treated aesthetic issue. This is unfortunate because only lines and wrinkles cause more concern among cosmetic consumers.
A double chin can make you look older and heavier no matter what your age or weight. And, in many cases, this fat doesn’t respond to lifestyle changes such as diet and exercise because genetics is often the cause.
Since April 2015, Kybella fat dissolver has been revolutionizing the world of non-surgical cosmetic treatments. You may have seen Kybella on GMA (Good Morning America), news programs, or while surfing the Internet.
Until Kybella FDA approval, there was little you could do about submental fat except wear turtlenecks or get a surgical liposuction treatment. But now, this brand-new non-surgical cosmetic procedure makes it possible to ditch your double chin and achieve a tighter, more contoured look without incisions or downtime.
How many treatments will I need?
You and your doctor will customize your KYBELLA® treatment regimen, including how many treatments you need, based on your desired chin profile. Many patients experience visible results in 2 to 4 treatment sessions. During these sessions, your HCP will administer KYBELLA® into the fat under your chin using multiple injections. Up to 6 treatment sessions may be administered spaced no less than one month apart.
- In clinical studies, results for KYBELLA®-treated patients who had a ≥1-grade composite improvement were 8% (1 treatment), 28% (2 treatments), 43% (3 treatments), 55% (4 treatments), 66% (5 treatments) and 72% (6 treatments)
- In clinical studies, results for KYBELLA®-treated patients who had a ≥2-grade composite improvement were 0% (1 treatment), .2% (2 treatments), .8% (3 treatments), 3.5% (4 treatments), 3.9% (5 treatments) and 15% (6 treatments)
- 59% of subjects in the clinical trials received all 6 treatments
How long will the results last?
When injected into the fat under your chin, KYBELLA® causes the destruction of fat cells. Once destroyed, those cells cannot store or accumulate fat. After the aesthetic response is achieved, re-treatment with KYBELLA® is not expected.
