Kybella – No More Double Chin!

Kybella MarylandSubmental fullness is what most of us refer to as a ‘double chin.’ Nearly 70% of people say that they are bothered by this condition1, and until now there have been very few options for treating it. It affects men and women alike, and often time, weight is not necessarily a factor. Genetics, aging and fluctuations in weight can all contribute to having submental fullness. Studies also indicate that people are just as bothered by having submental fullness as they are by lines and wrinkles1.

That’s the bad news. The good news is that now there is Kybella.

Kybella is the first and only FDA approved injectable treatment to improve submental fullness. For many patients, results can be seen in just 2-4 treatments. Kybella is a prescription medicine for adults and can only be administered by a professional. Kybella has been part of a global clinical development program involving more than 2,600 patients, of which more than 1,600 were treated with Kybella.

If you are bothered by a double chin, visit Dr. Beth Comeau for a Kybella consultation. She will evaluate your individual goals for reducing submental fullness and recommend treatment options.

What You Can Expect

During treatment, Dr. Comeau will administer KYBELLA into the fat underneath your chin using multiple injections. Most patients require 2-4 treatments spaced 1 month apart. In a clinical trial for KYBELLA, 79% of patients reported satisfaction with the appearance of their chin and face. Patients also reported an improvement in self-perception, including feeling younger and happier based on their chin profile, and feeling less self-conscious, less embarrassed and less overweight2.

How It Works

KYBELLA contains the active ingredient deoxycholic acid, a naturally-occurring molecule in the body which aids in the breakdown and absorption of fat. When injected, KYBELLA destroys fat cells under the chin, eliminating their ability to store or accumulate fat.

When injected into the fat beneath your chin, KYBELLA® causes the destruction of fat cells. Once destroyed, those cells cannot store or accumulate fat.
