What Is Submental Fullness?

Submental fullness or double chin is common in both women and men. It is caused by aging, genetics and weight gain (less often). It detracts from an otherwise balanced and harmonious facial appearance – leading to an older, heavier look.

How Can Kybella Treat Submental Fullness (Double Chin)?

KYBELLA™ is the first and only FDA-approved non-surgical treatment of moderate to severe submental fullness. Dr. Kim was invited to be one of the first in the country to offer this revolutionary treatment and serves as a faculty trainer for cosmetic surgeons.

How Does Kybella Work?

KYBELLA™ is identical to deoxycholic acid, a naturally occurring molecule in the body that aids in the breakdown and absorption of fat. When injected into the skin, the fat cell membrane is disrupted which causes the fat to dissolve. Once destroyed, these cells cannot store or accumulate fat. A series of tiny injections are placed into the fatty areas at each treatment session.

How Long Until I Can See Results With Kybella?

Typically, 2 – 4 treatments are administered at 1 month or longer time intervals for optimal cosmetic effect. Results can be seen within weeks of treatment as the body naturally processes and permanently removes the destroyed fat cells.
