Submental fat (SMF) plays an increasingly major role in the overall aesthetics of our faces as they age. A 2018 survey revealed that 73% of people surveyed felt bothered by excess fat on the neck and around the chin. Targeting excess fat in the chin and neck area is one of our most requested services at A Better You.

KYBELLA®: Your Under-Chin Profile Solution

KYBELLA® is the only FDA-approved injectable treatment that is proven to destroy fat cells under the chin, improving your profile. Diet and exercise changes simply do not work for everyone, especially as people get older. If you’re bothered by submental fullness (fat deposits under the chin) but want to avoid surgery, Dr. Clarke-Bennett offers KYBELLA® treatments in her Odenton, Maryland medical spa.

How Does KYBELLA® Work?

a woman received kybella chin injectionsThe active ingredient in KYBELLA® is a synthetic deoxycholic acid. Deoxycholic acid is a naturally-occurring molecule that helps the body break down and absorb dietary fat. When injected into the fat beneath your chin, KYBELLA® destroys fat cells. The result is a noticeable reduction in bulginess under the chin. Once this fat is destroyed, the cells can no longer store fat in that area. This means that once you reach your desired goal, you will never need another treatment. The following results are permanent:

  • Reduction or removal of under-chin fat
  • Improvement in your profile

Permanent Fat Removal®

Before starting treatment, Dr. Clarke-Bennett will examine the area under and around the chin to determine if KYBELLA® treatment is right for you. She will then tailor your treatment according to the amount of fat under the chin and how you’d like your profile to look. Once the fat under your chin is destroyed, these cells can no longer accumulate fat. This means that once you reach your profile goal, you will never need another treatment.

How Many KYBELLA® Treatments Do I Need?

Since everyone’s chin profile is unique, the number of treatments you’ll need varies from patient to patient. Dr. Clarke-Bennett will help determine how many treatments you will need to achieve optimal results. This decision will be based on the distribution and amount of your submental fat deposits along with your personal achievement goals. KYBELLA® treatments are given at least 1 month apart, and we do not recommend that patients receive more than 6 treatments. In its clinical studies, 59% of KYBELLA® patients received 6 treatments. A Better You Medispa can take care of all of your skincare needs, including:
