What Causes Submental Fullness?
Although weight gain can contribute to excess fat under the chin, other factors, like genetics and age, can contribute as well.
What is Kybella?
Kybella is an FDA-approved injectable treatment for eradicating a double chin in patients 18 years or older. This treatment uses a molecule that occurs naturally in our body, deoxycholic acid, to break down fat cells.
What Does a Treatment Involve?
Before your procedure, Dr. Johnston will fully describe the process. The treatment area is cleaned, and lidocaine or a topical anesthetic will be used numb the area, confirming your comfort. Kybella is then injected into the fatty area, and often requires 12-20 injections per treatment. The injection of deoxycholic acid destroys fat cells, resulting in the elimination of the double chin.
