If you’re bothered by sub-mental fullness, you’re not alone. According to a 2015 survey conducted by the American Society of Dermatologists 67% of people said they’re bothered by under-the-chin fullness, or double chin. Many patients find that even with exercise and a good diet, they still have trouble losing the pad of fat underneath the chin area.
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 these fat cells. Once destroyed, those cells cannot store or accumulate fat. During your treatment sessions, the Beauty Now professionals will administer KYBELLA® into the fat under your chin using multiple injections and a very tiny needle. Most patients find the injections themselves nearly painless but there is a mild warm or “throbbing” sensation in the neck/ chin area for about 5-15 minutes after the injection. Cold compresses are very helpful and given right after the injection.
You and Dr. Mobley will decide how many treatments you need. Many patients experience visible results in 2 to 4 treatment sessions with about 4-6 weeks between sessions. Once the desired aesthetic response is achieved with KYBELLA®, re-treatment is not expected.
