KYBELLA® (deoxycholic acid) injection is the first and
only FDA-approved injectable treatment that contours and improves the
appearance of submental fullness, sometimes referred to as “double
chin”. You and Dr. Gillespie will design a treatment plan tailored to help you
improve your chin profile. During your treatment sessions, she
will administer Kybella into the fat under your chin using multiple injections.
How does it work?
When injected into the fat beneath your chin, Kybella destroys fat cells. Once destroyed, those cells cannot store or accumulate fat. The active ingredient is deoxycholic acid, a naturally occurring molecule in the body that aids in the breakdown and absorption of dietary fat. Fat cleared from the treatment area is processed through your body's natural metabolism.
I recently saw a photo of myself in profile and was really frustrated with the fat under my chin. I work out and eat well, but it wouldn't go away.
