Injections For Chin Fat & Double Chins
Kybella is an injectable substance called cholanoic acid which destroys fat cells under the chin to improve the way your face looks. Our office is now offering this treatment for your double chin. Recently approved by the FDA, KYBELLA® (deoxycholic acid) injection, contours and improves the appearance of moderate to severe submental fullness, sometimes referred to as “double chin.”
Submental fullness can impact a broad range of adults, including both men and women, and can be influenced by several factors such as aging, genetics and weight gain and is often resistant to diet and exercise alone. According to a survey by the American Society for Dermatologic Surgery, nearly as many consumers are bothered by submental fullness (68%) as by lines and wrinkles around the eyes (71%).
How Do Kybella Injections Work?
When injected into subcutaneous fat, KYBELLA® causes the destruction of fat cells. Once destroyed, those cells cannot store or accumulate fat. You will notice a difference within 1-2 months after having the treatment.
The most common side effects are swelling, bruising, pain, numbness, redness and formation of small areas of firmness around the treatment area, you can expect to be fully recovered within 2 days.
