Submental fullness, also known as a “double chin,” is a common facial aesthetic condition that can lead an older and heavier appearance of the face. Affecting both men and women, submental fullness can be caused by genetic predisposition, age, and weight gain.
The active ingredient in KYBELLA™ is deoxycholic acid, a naturally-occurring substance in the body that is involved in the breakdown and absorption of dietary fat.
KYBELLA™ is injected into the fat beneath your chin and causes local destruction, or “cytolysis” of fat cells. Once destroyed, the cell can no longer store fat.
