The team at Columbus Women’s Care offers more services than just reproductive and sexual health. We also provide a solution for other concerns that may impact our patients, including submental fullness. More commonly referred to as a “double chin,” submental fullness can occur in patients of any gender, age, and weight. It is not just present in patients who are overweight, as it is often genetic. However, patients with a double chin may find themselves hiding from the camera because they are self-conscious about how their appearance looks with excess fat underneath the chin. To resolve this issue, many men and women will find that a revolutionary injectable can help. This injectable is called Kybella.
Understanding Kybella and how it works
Kybella is the first and only FDA-approved injectable used for the treatment of submental fullness. This injectable is formulated with deoxycholic acid. Deoxycholic acid is naturally occurring and produced by the body and is used to help in absorbing body fats. When injected into the area of the neck underneath the chin, it can physically destroy the fat cells in the area, allowing the body to naturally remove them through the lymphatic system. This injectable often replaces the need for liposuction and provides a nonsurgical solution for patients tired of excess fat underneath the chin.
How many injections do I need?
Kybella results can be seen after a single treatment, but for the optimum results, patients may need anywhere from two to five treatment sessions. These are often scheduled several weeks apart at the practice.
Is Kybella safe?
When Kybella is administered by an experienced provider, the results are not only noticeable but safe. Safety of the Kybella injection has been evaluated by the FDA, which has deemed this injection appropriate and effective in treating submental fullness without surgery.
