What causes a double chin?

There are three main causes: weight gain, genetics and aging. You definitely don’t have to be overweight to have fullness under your chin. Unfortunately, sometimes, no matter how much you exercise or diet, your double chin may not go away, causing you to look heavier and older than you actually are.

What is KYBELLA and how does it destroy the submental fat?

KYBELLA is an FDA-approved prescription medicine used in adults to improve the appearance and profile of moderate to severe under-chin fat. Now, you can get rid of your double chin noninvasively without surgical liposuction.

The active ingredient in KYBELLA is synthetic deoxycholic acid, a naturally occurring molecule in the body that aids in the breakdown and absorption of dietary fat. When KYBELLA is injected into the submental fat, it permanently destroys the fat cells, which are then removed through the body’s lymphatic system. Once destroyed, those cells can no longer store or accumulate fat.
