You’ve invested in your skin, now let’s invest in your profile. Submental fullness, often referred to as a “double chin”, is a common concern in both men and women. The extra pockets of fat beneath the chin can be caused by aging, genetics, or weight fluctuations that lead to a softer jawline and chin and a less-defined profile. For some individuals, no matter how much they diet or exercise, the double chin does not go away. Double chins often make people look “heavier” and older than their actual age.
What is Kybella®
Kybella® is the first and only FDA-approved nonsurgical treatment used to reduce excess fat beneath the chin. Double chins are a common condition that can occur due to aging, weight fluctuations, and possibly even genetics. When injected, it breaks up and destroys the fat allowing the body to naturally and permanently eliminate it. Kybella® contains a non-animal, non-human form of deoxycholic acid, which is a substance found in the body that aids in the breakdown and absorption of excess fat cells.
Who is a candidate for Kybella®?
- You’re bothered (unhappy, self-conscious, embarrassed) by fat under the chin, also known as submental fullness
- You feel the condition makes you look older or heavier than you actually are
- You don’t want to have surgery
- You eat well and exercise, but submental fullness does not go away
What are the benefits of Kybella®?
Kybella® works to diminish fat without invasive neck lift surgeries, and the following benefits:
- Eliminates double chin
- Permanent results
- Safe and effective
- Minimally invasive
- Quick and easy procedure
What Happens During My Kybella® Treatment?
Kybella® is injected into the targeted area under the chin and jawline with an ultra-fine needle. Once injected, the solution dissolves the fat using deoxycholic acid, revealing a contoured, slim chin. The body uses deoxycholic acid to process and digest that fat we eat in food. While the treatments are painless, it is common to require several injections to achieve the desired look.
How Long Does It Take to Perform Kybella® Treatments?
It typically takes about an hour for the appointment with most people needing two to six treatments. Each treatment is typically spread out about four weeks apart.
What to Expect After Kybella® Treatments
After your Kybella® treatment, you will likely have some swelling, bruising, or numbness under your chin. Be sure to inform your healthcare professional if you develop an uneven smile, facial muscle weakness, difficulty swallowing or injection site problems such as bruising, hair loss, open sores (ulcers), and damage and tissue cell-death (necrosis) around the injection site. Call Rejuv immediately if you develop open sores or drainage from the treatment area.
When Will I See Results?
Most patients typically see results after just one Kybella® treatment. The full results may take up to four treatments scheduled about one month apart to achieve the desired look. Since the results are permanent, once they are revealed, no more treatments are necessary.
What Patients Are Saying
“I am by no means overweight, but I have always struggled with a bit of a double chin. I considered cosmetic surgery, but I didn’t want the downtime that comes with surgery. I went in to try Kybella at Rejuv a little over 2 months ago, and even after my first treatment I have seen great results. It has not made my double chin go away completely, but I have seen a significant difference in the way my chin looks. My provider was very upfront and did mention that I could possibly need a second treatment. I go in for that one soon!” – Anonymous Patient Since 2016
“Kybella is amazing. I have always been self conscious about my double chin, and this product gave me my self confidence back. The only down side was a little bit of swelling and it can be a little painful. BUT the results are worth it. No pain no gain, I guess! I did two sessions and it literally looks like I lost 10 pounds. Wish they had something like this for the rest of my body!” – Anonymous Patient since 2007
