According to the American Society for Dermatologic Surgery, 68% of people surveyed were concerned about submental fullness. At Still Waters Day & Medical Spa in Pensacola, FL, we strive to help each of our clients feel confident regardless of the cosmetic concerns they have. If you are concerned about the appearance of your neck and chin, we think you will be excited to learn more about KYBELLA®.
What Is KYBELLA®?
How It Works
Who Is This Right for?
During your initial evaluation, we will review your medical history thoroughly to ensure that you are healthy enough to receive this injectable medication. For example, we need to know if you are currently taking any medications or supplements designed to prevent blood clotting or are fighting an active infection.
Who Is This Procedure Inappropriate for?
This procedure is not appropriate for individuals who are pregnant, breastfeeding, or who plan to become pregnant in the next six months. Although most clients need only two to four sessions spaced a month apart, some clients need up to six treatments to improve the appearance of their chin and neck. Since the FDA has not tested this medication on women who are pregnant, we cannot recommend this treatment for such women.
The Bottom Line
If you suffer from submental fullness or bands of fat around your neck, KYBELLA® may be appropriate for you. It is the only injectable fat removal treatment and has been FDA-approved for over five years. It works by injecting synthetic secondary bile acid to destroy localized fat cells so they can no longer store fat and is appropriate for most healthy adults who wish to improve the appearance of their chin and neck.
