If you’re bothered by it, you’re not alone. In a recent study, 67% of people in the US stated they are bothered by submental fullness1 or better known as the “double chin.” Hotchandani Laser, Vein & Cosmetic Surgery is proud to announce the addition of Kybella ™, an innovative treatment for submental fulness, to our menu of service options.
What is submental fullness?
Sometimes referred to as “double chin,” is a common yet undertreated facial aesthetic condition that can impact a broad range of adults, including both women and men. Causes tend to include: Aging (it may naturally develop as you age), Genetics (simply said, it may be part of your DNA), and Weight Gain (it may simply be a result of gaining weight).*
Unfortunately, for many, no matter how much you diet or exercise, the condition may not go away, and can make you look older and heavier than you actually are.*
What is Kybella™ & how does it work?
Kybella™ is the first and only FDA-approved nonsurgical treatment that contours and improves the appearance of submental fullness.
- Nonsurgical, 15-20 minute in-office treatment session
- Customized to help you achieve your treatment goals
- Reduces fat cells when injected into the fat beneath your chin. Once an aesthetic goal is achieved, re-treatment is not expected
The active ingredient in Kybella™ is deoxycholic acid, a naturally occurring molecule in the body that aids in the breakdown and absorption of dietary fat. When injected into the fat beneath your chin, Kybella™ causes the reduction of fat cells. Once reduced, those cells cannot typically store or accumulate fat.*
