Complements Non-surgical chin treatment now offered by Dr. Peterson


Whether that extra fullness beneath your chin is something you’ve always had, or something you recently noticed, it may be a condition called submental fullness. If you’re bothered by submental fullness, KYBELLA® may be the answer to help you achieve your aesthetic goal.

Treatment is administered by a KYBELLA-trained physician, and Mount Nittany Physician Group Reconstructive & Cosmetic Surgery’s Emily Peterson, MD, has recently been designated as a KYBELLA specialist to improve your chin profile, and help you look and feel your best.

KYBELLA is a nonsurgical prescription medicine used in adults to improve the appearance and profile of moderate to severe fat below the chin. The active ingredient in KYBELLA – synthetic deoxycholic acid, is a naturally occurring molecule in the body that helps to break down fat. When injected beneath the chin, KYBELLA permanently destroys fat cells in the targeted area. While you may have several injections over the course of multiple sessions, results are permanent, making the minimally invasive procedure convenient in reaching your aesthetic goals. For best results, it’s important to maintain a healthy lifestyle and weight. 

To provide maximum results, treatment is individually tailored to your unique profile. The process itself takes about 15 to 20 minutes per session, and the exact number of injections will depend on your desired profile. While you may be excited to see results instantly, it’s important to be patient. Full results of KYBELLA typically begin to show a few weeks after your final injection.
