Treatments for Double Chin Fat
A double chin, also known as submental fullness, is a common condition among both men and women. Generally, the development of a double chin is influenced by factors such as weight gain, genetics, and aging. To mitigate the appearance of a double chin, many turn to regular exercise and dieting; however, sometimes these lifestyle changes do not help.
What is KYBELLA?
KYBELLA (deoxycholic acid) is changing the way unsatisfactory weight distribution on the jawline is managed with the creation of an FDA-approved treatment giving you the ability to contour and smooth the appearance of the “double chin” without requiring surgery. Available as an injection, the patient usually is able to see results within two to four treatments, spaced about a month apart to get the best results. Treatments are customized to each patient, so sometimes more treatment sessions may be needed to obtain the best result.
What Can It Do for Me?
Once injected into the fat below your chin, KYBELLA destroys unwanted fat cells in the area, slimming your face to reveal your beautiful and contoured neck. Once those fat cells are obliterated, they will not return. The results are long lasting, requiring no return visits or additional application of KYBELLA after you obtain your desired results. If you gain weight at a later time however, it is possible to still gain fat in the remaining fat cells in the treated area.
