Dr. Emil Tanghetti is now offering Kybellaâ„¢ injections, the first FDA-approved non-surgical treatment that contours the appearance of submental fullness.
Sacramento, CA — December 16, 2015
Dr. Emil Tanghetti, a board-certified dermatologist in Sacramento, CA, is proud to announce that he is adding Kybellaâ„¢, the first and only FDA approved injectable drug that contours and improves the appearance of submental fullness, to his list of cosmetic services.
Submental fullness due to submental fat, sometimes referred to as “double chin,” is a common, yet undertreated facial aesthetic condition. It can detract from an otherwise balanced and harmonious facial appearance — leading to an older and heavier look. Submental fullness can impact a broad range of adults, and is not limited to people who are overweight. This condition can impact men or women of average weight and can be caused by aging, genetics and weight gain. It is often resistant to diet and exercise alone. According to a 2014 survey by the American Society for Dermatologic Surgery (ASDS), over 2/3 of consumers are bothered by submental fullness — nearly as many as those bothered by lines and wrinkles around the eyes.
Kybellaâ„¢ is indicated for improvement in the appearance of moderate to severe convexity or fullness associated with submental fat in adults. The safe and effective use of KYBELLAâ„¢ for the treatment of subcutaneous fat outside the submental region has not been established and is not recommended. Kybellaâ„¢ is a non-human and non-animal formulation of deoxycholic acid, a naturally-occurring molecule in the body that aids in the breakdown and absorption of dietary fat. When injected into subcutaneous fat, Kybellaâ„¢ causes the destruction of fat cells. Once destroyed, those cells cannot store or accumulate fat. After the aesthetic response is achieved, retreatment with Kybellaâ„¢ is not expected.
Kybellaâ„¢ is administered by injections into the fat under the chin. Each in-office treatment session is typically 15-20 minutes. Treatment with Kybellaâ„¢ is customized by the physician to the patient’s aesthetic goals for an improved chin profile.
