Kybella®: From Double Chin To Swan Neck*

A Revolutionary Technology

The Problem

A survey by the American Society for Dermatologic Surgery found that 67% of people said that they were bothered by the fat beneath their chin.

This excess fat is called submental fullness associated with sub mental fat.

If you are like the majority, you wish there was a way to reduce some of this fat under your chin and emerge a more confident version of yourself.

The Causes

Genetics help determine the size and shape of your body. This also means that they determine which areas of your body are prone to excess fat. Some people are more prone to sub mental fullness than others, based on the DNA they receive from their parents.
When a human consumes more calories than they use in a day, the excess must go somewhere. The body collects this in the form of fat for later use. When this happens, weight is usually gained. Some are more prone than others to show signs of weight gain in the area below the chin, creating submental fullness.
As we grow older, our skin elasticity weakens, which can cause drooping or sagging of the skin. This can occur in many places on the face and body, but often occurs under the chin, causing submental fullness.

Treatment Option: Kybella®

Kybella® is an injectable treatment with the active ingredient deoxycholic acid. This acid is found naturally in the body and breaks down and absorbs dietary fat.* 

When injected, Kybella® destroys fat cells, causing them to lose the ability to accumulate fat. The fat that is destroyed is cleared by being processed by the body's natural metabolism.

*Results for each treatment may vary from person to person.
Kybella® is a great option for those who are bothered by the fat under their chin who do not want to undergo surgery.

It works well for those who eat well and exercise but still have stubborn fat under the chin that does not go away or for those who feel the submental fat make them look older or heavier than they are.*

*Results for each treatment may vary from person to person.
Kybella® is given during an office visit and only takes about 15-20 minutes. There are a series of injections under the skin by a health care provider who is trained to administer Kybella®.

There are a variety of symptoms that people experience after injections. Some of the common ones are swelling, bruising, pain, numbness, redness, and areas of hardness.*

*Results for each treatment may vary from person to person.

Kybella® is the first FDA-approved product to eliminate submental fat and could be a good choice for you if you are frustrated with the look of the skin under your chin. Catalyst Medical Center was the first in the Fargo area to offer Kybella® and to have experienced injectors ready for you.
