Submental fullness, also called “double chin,” is a common yet undertreated facial aesthetic condition that can impact a broad range of adults, including both women and men. It is caused as a result of aging, genetics or weight gain.
Many people are bothered by submental fullness, simply because it can make them look older and heavier than they actually are. In fact, a 2015 survey conducted by the American Society for Dermatologic Surgery (ASDS) found that nearly as many consumers are bothered by submental fullness as by lines and wrinkles around the eyes, mid-face, cheeks and mouth.
Advanced Skincare MedCenter is excited to offer Kybella™, the first and only FDA-approved injectable drug that contours and improves the appearance of submental fullness.
Kybella® has been proven to change the contour of your neck, diminishing this area. A series of two to four 15-20 minute treatments (usually one month apart) can destroy fat cells in the chin and neck area. Once your aesthetic goal is achieved, results are expected to be long lasting.
Kybella® is made of deoxycholic acid. When injected, the deoxycholic acid breaks down fat cells in the treated area.
For most patients, downtime was minimal and occurred most commonly after the first treatment session. When scheduling your treatments, keep your social plans and work commitments in mind.
