We are so excited to announce that we now offer the first, and only FDA- Approved injectable treatment that is used in adults to improve the appearance and profile of moderate to severe fat below the chin, also known as “double chin”. Once the fat is injected, Kybella causes the destruction of fat cells, and therefore can no longer store or accumulate fat. This treatment has been excessively popular due to the amount of men and women experiencing the buildup of fat under the chin. This treatment is especially favorable because once the fat cells are destroyed, it cannot come back.
So, what does that mean? Unlike other fat reducing products, Kybella is unique in that the fat can not come back, or accumulate due to weight gain. Multiple treatments may be needed, depending on what you and your physician decide. Once optimal results are achieved, “touch up” treatments are not expected. Generally, this treatment has minimal side effects, be sure to talk to your physician about the best way to treat your “double chin”. Prior to Kybella, the only known effective treatment for the submental fat under the chin was surgery. Although diet and exercise can certainly help aid in the fat loss under the chin, it was not always an effective method due accumulation of the fat. Kybella is a synthetic form of deoxycholic acid. The acid occurs naturally in our body and helps breakdown and absorb dietary fat.
