An Easy Treatment for Your Double Chin? Here’s the Skinny

An Easy Treatment for Your Double Chin? Here's the Skinny

The FDA recently approved the first non-surgical treatment specifically for minimizing moderate to severe “submental fat,” also known as the dreaded double chin. Got your attention? It’s called KYBELLA™, and it requires only a series of injections instead of surgery. Here’s a quick Q&A to break down the double-chin-dissolving treatment:

  • What is it? KYBELLA contains deoxycholic acid, a substance that is produced naturally in the body to help metabolize fat. When injected, the drug disrupts the fat cell membrane and destroys the cells, minimizing the appearance of a double chin and achieving a more refined profile.
  • Is it safe? Absolutely. With the FDA on its side and successful clinical trials under its belt, KYTHERA Biopharmaceuticals, Inc., the manufacturer, is now taking its time to fully launch the product to ensure that all licensed healthcare professionals offering it meet necessary safety protocols. As with any injection, there are some risks involved, which should be fully understood by both patient and provider prior to the initial treatment. Intensive training sessions are underway around the U.S.
  • Can I use it elsewhere? KYBELLA is not approved or recommended for treating areas other than underneath the chin.
  • How can I learn more? If you are curious to learn more about KYBELLA, call us at (219) 322-3131. We’ll be happy to discuss this exciting new treatment, as well as the variety of other options we offer patients interested in a sleeker look.
