Loving your neck and the extra skin that makes it look like you have two chins is hard to do. Many people struggle with this obvious sign of aging. The good news is that there is a new injectable product that is designed to reduce the appearance of a double chin. It’s called KYBELLA®. Continue reading to learn more about it.
- KYBELLA® is a prescription injectable that can improve the appearance of moderate to severe submittal fat below the chin.
- The active ingredient in KYBELLA® is deoxycholic acid, a naturally-occurring molecule in the body that aids in the absorption and breakdown of dietary fat.
- When KYBELLA® is injected beneath the chin, it causes the destruction of fat cells. Once these cells are destroyed, they cannot store or accumulate additional fat.
- Because every skin-care issue and patient is unique, Dr. Futoryan will help you determine how many KYBELLA® treatments you will need to achieve your desired results.
Before scheduling your KYBELLA® treatment, be sure to tell us about any medical conditions you have, the prescription and over-the-counter medicines you are taking, if you have had or plan to have surgery on your face, chin or neck, or if you have had cosmetic treatments to these areas. Let us know if you have bleeding problems, have trouble swallowing, are taking a blood-thinner, are breast-feeding or are currently pregnant or planning to become pregnant.
Are there side effects? KYBELLA® can cause serious side effects, including nerve injury to the jaw, or trouble swallowing. The most common side effects of KYBELLA® are light bruising, pain, redness, swelling and numbness, as well as areas of possible hardness in the treatment area.
