Many patients achieved improvement in submental fullness after one treatment session of Kybella in a private practice setting, according to study results published in Dermatologic Surgery.

Sachin M. Shridharani, MD, of Luxurgery, New York, conducted a prospective study of 100 patients (mean age, 45.4 years; 39 men; mean BMI, 26.1) with submental fullness who received subcutaneous treatment of Kybella (deoxycholic acid, Allergan), also known as ATX-101. The injections (2 mg/cm2) were in the submental area for a maximum of six sessions with intervals of at least 1 month.
