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.
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 is excited to offer Kybella™, the first and only FDA-approved injectable drug that contours and improves the appearance of submental fullness – the double chin.
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.
The active ingredient in Kybella is a synthetic form of deoxycholic acid, a molecule that occurs naturally in the body. When it is injected into the fat under the chin, deoxycholic acid destroys fat cells. Once the fat cells are destroyed, they can no longer store fat, which means that when you have achieved your cosmetic goals, you will not require any further treatment. A series of Kybella treatments can noticeably reduce submental fat.
The first step is to schedule a one-on-one consultation at our office in Fullerton, Newport Beach, or Brentwood. Our doctor will carefully examine the area under and around your chin and tailor your treatment plan based on the amount of submental fat and your personal cosmetic goals.
With each treatment, you will receive multiple Kybella injections under the chin in a procedure that takes approximately 15 to 20 minutes. The number of injections will depend on the amount of fat in the area and the profile you hope to achieve.
The number of treatments needed varies from patient to patient. Treatments should be scheduled a minimum of one month apart. Each treatment will reduce fullness under the chin until the final treatment when you reach your aesthetic goals and achieve long-lasting results.
