Description

WHAT IS KYBELLA™

Dr Nowak is now offering a treatment for your double chin! Recently approved by the FDA, KYBELLA™ (deoxycholic acid) injection, contours and improves the appearance of moderate to severe submental fullness, sometimes referred to as “double chin.”

Submental fullness can impact a broad range of adults, including both men and women, and can be influenced by several factors such as aging, genetics and weight gain and is often resistant to diet and exercise alone. According to a survey by the American Society for Dermatologic Surgery, nearly as many consumers are bothered by submental fullness (68%) as by lines and wrinkles around the eyes (71%).

HOW DOES KYBELLA WORK?

KYBELLA™ is a formulation of a naturally occurring-substance (deoxycholic acid) that targets and breaks up fat cells in the area where it’s injected. Once those cells are broken up, they can no longer store or accumulate fat. Once the aesthetic response is achieved with KYBELLA™, re-treatment is not expected to be required.

Submental fullness, sometimes referred to as “double chin”, is a common yet undertreated facial aesthetic condition. It can impact a broad range of adults, including both men and women, and can be influenced by several factors such as aging, genetics and weight gain, and is often resistant to diet and exercise alone.

If you’re bothered by submental fullness, you’re not alone. According to a 2014 survey conducted by the American Society for Dermatologic Surgery (ASDS):

  • 68% of people said they’re bothered by under-the-chin fullness, or double chin.
  • People are just as bothered by under-the-chin fullness as they are by lines and wrinkles around and under their eyes.

FAQs

What is Kybella®?

Kybella® (deoxycholic acid) injection is the first and only FDA-approved prescription nonsurgical treatment that is used in adults to improve the appearance and profile of moderate to severe fat below the chin (submental fat), also called, “double chin.” It is not known if Kybella® is safe and effective in children less than 18 years of age. It is not known if Kybella® is safe and effective for use outside of the submental area.

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 your chin, Kybella® causes the destruction of fat cells. Once destroyed, those cells cannot store or accumulate fat.

Is Kybella® right for me?

Only you and your doctor can decide if Kybella® is right for you. If you’re bothered by submental fullness, or double chin, ask your doctor about Kybella®.

You and your doctor will customize your Kybella® treatment regimen, including how many treatments you need, based on your desired chin profile.
