GOOD BYE DOUBLE CHIN!
If your chin has a more substantial appearance than you’d like, you may be interested to learn more about Kybella, the only FDA-approved injectable treatment that destroys fat cells in the submental area, commonly referred to as a double-chin. In addition to treating a double-chin, Kybella has also been used to minimize other areas of fat including the bra line, upper knees, arms, and virtually any small pockets of fat.
The active ingredient in Kybella is made of a synthetic deoxycholic acid, which is a naturally occurring molecule in the body. This molecule works to breakdown and then absorbs fat. Kybella, when injected into the double chin fat area, destroys the fat cells. Once they are destroyed, these cells can no longer accumulate fat.
If any of these statements apply to you, Kybella could be the treatment to deliver the results you need:
Your double chin makes you unhappy with your appearance
Your chin makes you look older than your actual age
You don’t want to have surgery
Despite diet and exercise, your double chin won’t disappear
What to expect:
The entire treatment is relatively painless. An ice compress will be applied to the entire area to be treated. This helps to reduce any swelling as well as make it more comfortable for the patient. The area will be sterilized and marked. Then our medical professional will perform a series of injections within the area.
After your treatment, you could experience:
Some patients experience a “heat” sensation, redness and swelling after the treatment, swelling is the most common side effect and occurs in majority of patients. If needed, patients may take ibuprofen (if able to tolerate) to minimize any discomfort. Some patients may experience bruising. In 4 weeks this process is typically repeated.
