First and only FDA-approved injectable drug treatment for Submental fullness
New Product Alert: Our office is now offering a treatment for your double chin! Recently approved by the FDA, KYBELLA™ (deoxycholic acid) injection, contours and improves the appearance of moderate to severe submental fullness, sometimes referred to as “double chin.”
WHAT IS SUBMENTAL FULLNESS?
Submental fullness can impact a broad range of adults, including both men and women, and can be influenced by several factors such as aging, genetics and weight gain and is often resistant to diet and exercise alone. According to a survey by the American Society for Dermatologic Surgery, nearly as many consumers are bothered by submental fullness (68%) as by lines and wrinkles around the eyes (71%).
HOW DOES KYBELLA™ WORK?
When injected into subcutaneous fat, KYBELLA™ causes the destruction of fat cells. Once destroyed, those cells cannot store or accumulate fat.
WHAT ARE THE SIDE EFFECTS?
The most common side effects are swelling, bruising, pain, numbness, redness and formation of small areas of firmness around the treatment area. KYBELLA™ can cause serious side effects, including trouble swallowing and nerve injury in the jaw that can cause an uneven smile or facial muscle weakness.
