At the Asarch Center, we are honored that Kythera, makers of Kybella, chose us as one of the first in the country to be trained and to offer Kybella in our offices!
If you are bothered by moderate to severe submental fullness, also referred to as a “double chin,” we have great news for you. Kybella is the first and only FDA-approved nonsurgical treatment that contours and improves the appearance of submental fullness and we will be one of the first in Denver and Castle Rock to offer Kybella. The Kybella treatment at Asarch Center will be customized to help you achieve your aesthetic goals for an improved chin profile.
ABOUT SUBMENTAL FULLNESS
Submental fullness, sometimes referred to as “double chin”, is a common yet undertreated facial aesthetic condition. It can impact a broad range of adults, including both men and women, and can be influenced by several factors such as aging, genetics and weight gain, and is often resistant to diet and exercise alone.
If you’re bothered by submental fullness, you’re not alone. According to a 2014 survey conducted by the American Society for Dermatologic Surgery (ASDS):
- 68% of people said they’re bothered by under-the-chin fullness, or double chin
- People are just as bothered by under-the-chin fullness as they are by lines and wrinkles around and under their eyes
What is KYBELLA™?
KYBELLA™ is a prescription medicine used in adults to improve the appearance and profile of moderate to severe fat below the chin (submental fat), also called “double chin.” It is not known if KYBELLA™ is safe and effective for use outside of the submental area.
HOW IT WORKS
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 destruction of fat cells. Once destroyed, those cells cannot store or accumulate fat. You and your doctor will decide how many treatments you need. Once the desired aesthetic response is achieved with KYBELLA™, retreatment is not expected.
Tell your healthcare provider about all the medicines you take, including prescription and over-the-counter medicines, vitamins and herbal supplements. Especially tell your healthcare provider if you take a medicine that prevents the clotting of your blood (antiplatelet or anticoagulant medicine).
