4 things you need to know about Kybella®
- Posted on: Mar 29 2016
Here at Skin & Cosmetic Solutions, we've begun offering Kybella®, an exciting new treatment that improves the look of excess fat beneath the chin, otherwise known as submental fullness. Since the procedure is relatively new, we'd like to share some important information about it with you. So, here are the top four facts that you need to know about Kybella®:
1. First (and only one) of its kind
After being approved by the FDA in April of 2015, Kybella® became the first and only available injectable treatment available that drastically improves the appearance of submental fullness.
2. The results can be long-lasting
Because Kybella® destroys fat cells, preventing fat from forming in the future, patients aren't expected to have to return for more follow-up treatments once results become visible. According to Kybella®, the average patient sees the impact of the procedure after two to four treatments.
3. It should only be used to treat the chin area
The FDA established Kybella®'s effectiveness on the chin in a clinical trial of 1,022 participants. It remains unknown whether the treatment would work on other areas, but for now it's helped 2,600 patients worldwide, according to the procedure's official website.
4. Kybella® and Khloe Kardashian believe you should live chin up
To promote its product and a positive message, Kybella® recently hosted an event to launch the "Live Chin Up" campaign, which aims to encourage optimism and pride in oneself. Reality TV star Khloe Kardashian hosted the event, telling Cosmopolitan magazine that she supports plastic surgery:
"There's this misconception that I'm not into plastic surgery, but I'm into it and I don't care if you have it," she said.
According to a press release, Kybella® chose Kardashian as the host of the evening because she "embodies what it means to live chin up by refusing to let negativity stand in her way."
