Your profile is important – and not just your LinkedIn profile. Your facial profile is important for maintaining facial symmetry, yet some of us have unwanted fat under the chin, creating a disproportionate look.
Let’s be honest: a double chin is actually a common issue for both men and women, especially as they age. In fact, a survey from the American Society of Dermatologic Surgery (ASDS) explains that two-thirds of adults admit they are just as concerned about their double chin as they are about fine lines and wrinkles around their eyes. While a double chin is often associated with weight gain, you don’t have to be overweight to have one. Genetics or looser skin due to aging may also cause a double chin.
The bad news: diet and exercise will not help to reverse the double chin. But the good news is patients can eliminate this unwanted fat around the chin without incisions, anesthesia, or an extended recovery period.
The Kybella double chin treatment is an FDA-approved, non-surgical solution for unwanted fat around the chin. Kybella is deoxycholic acid, a substance naturally produced by the body to assist with the absorption of fats.
During the Kybella double chin treatment, this substance is injected underneath the chin, destroying fat cells that are then eliminated through the body’s natural processes, leading to a noticeable reduction in fullness under the chin. Once destroyed, these cells can no longer store or accumulate fat. The result? A leaner, more sculpted chin that develops over time.
To know if you’re a good candidate for Kybella, ask yourself:
- Are you embarrassed by, unhappy or self-conscious about unwanted fat around your chin?
- Do you feel this condition makes you look older and heavier than you are?
If you answered yes, Kybella may be right for you. It’s an easy, effective way to eliminate unwanted fat around your chin. Before treatment, our providers examine the area and confirm that Kybella is right for you. Then during treatment, you will receive multiple small injections under your chin, depending on the amount of fat you have and your desired profile. The process typically takes about 15 to 20 minutes.
Post-procedure, you’ll want to ice the treatment area throughout the day, and use a head-wrap as recommended. There is temporary swelling which can persist for 2-3 weeks, so you want to plan ahead accordingly. Most patients begin to notice results after 30 days, but some patients may need additional treatments to achieve their desired aesthetic look. Additional treatments are provided at minimum 1 month apart but it isn’t recommended to exceed 6 treatments.
We welcome you to experience the difference with our providers. There is a common misconception that cosmetic injections are safe and easy to administer. The skill level and extensive training of the injector is vital to your outcome. For the safest & most effective results, it’s important to understand that not all injectors are created equal. Careful thought should be taken into consideration when selecting your cosmetic injector.
