Dermatologist discusses Kybella as treatment for submental fullnessBy Dr. Mary Lupo
What is Kybella treatment?Patients use Kybella to address the fat underneath the chin that can contribute to a heavier overall appearance. This FDA-approved injectable is best for contouring the jaw line and removing the excess fat without the need for surgical intervention. This breakthrough treatment has allowed Americans the ability to achieve a better look quickly and easily—and in a non-invasive manner!
Kybella is formulated with deoxycholic acid. This acid is naturally found in the body and it breaks down fats. By injecting this formula into the area of submental fullness, it can destroy these cells and allow the body to eliminate them with the natural metabolic processes. These injections also keep fat from accumulating in the future.
