Submental fat, commonly known as the double chin, can make us feel less than attractive. Both men and women can be affected by submental fullness, which can be caused by weight gain, genetics and aging. You don’t have to be overweight to have fullness, and sometimes no matter how much you exercise or diet, the condition may not go away. The answer to targeting submental fat is KYBELLA®.
KYBELLA® is a synthetic version of deoxycholic acid, a naturally occurring molecule in the human body that aids in the breakdown and absorption of dietary fat. When injected into subcutaneous fat, in targeted locations, KYBELLA® breaks down fat cells, causing them to dissolve. The dissolved fat is then cleared out by the body’s own lymphatic and circulatory systems.
