KYBELLA®: The Newest Innovation for Permanently Erasing a Double Chin
Submental fullness—otherwise known as a double chin—can be influenced by many factors, including genetics, weight gain, and aging. Sometimes, no matter how much you diet or exercise, your double chin may not go away. All of us on the Dr. Rotatori team are thrilled to be able to offer a revolutionary non-surgical product that permanently addresses the common problem of double chins. KYBELLA® is the first and only FDA-approved injectable treatment to improve the appearance of moderate to severe fat beneath the chin by physically destroying fat cells.
How does KYBELLA Work?
The active ingredient in KYBELLA is deoxycholic acid, a naturally occurring molecule in the body that aids in the breakdown and absorption of dietary fat. When injected into the fat beneath the chin, KYBELLA physically destroys fat cells, making them unable to accumulate or store fat. Once destroyed, fat cleared from the treatment area is processed through the body’s natural metabolic mechanisms.
- KYBELLA is the first FDA-approved injectable treatment that permanently destroys stubborn double chin fat
- Permanently destroys fat and improves your chin and neck profile in quick, non-surgical procedures
- Defines and contours your face for a more youthful, healthy-looking appearance
What Is a KYBELLA Cosmetic Treatment Like?
Injected over a series of office visits, KYBELLA is a safe, effective way to remove unwanted fullness beneath the chin which can cause you to appear older or heavier than you actually are. The injection process takes approximately 15 to 20 minutes here in our state-of-the art office.
Pre-treatment recommendations: Please let us know about all of the medications you take, including prescriptions and any over-the-counter medicines, vitamins, and herbal supplements—especially if you take a medicine that prevents the clotting of your blood (antiplatelet or anticoagulant medicine). If you have any questions, contact the office for clarification or consult with your pharmacist.
Post-treatment recommendations: Keep your head above your heart for a minimum of 12 hours or until the following morning; sleeping on two pillows is recommended. When bending over, it is important to bend at the knees and keep your head up. Refrain from exercise or any activity that increases your heart rate or blood pressure.
