Is a double chin weighing you down? Even with a healthy lifestyle, it can be difficult to get rid of stubborn areas of fat beneath the chin. No more worries, Allergan (the manufacturers of Botox® and Juvederm®) has the treatment for you. Our medical spa now offers Kybella® to patients. Mallory, our nurse injector looks forward to helping patients achieve a more pleasing jawline.
Kybella® is a prescription medicine used in adults to improve the appearance and profile of moderate to severe fat below the chin (submental fat), also known as the “double chin.” The active ingredient in Kybella® is deoxycholic acid, a naturally-occurring molecule in the body that aids in the breakdown and absorption of dietary fat. When injected into the fat beneath your chin, Kybella® causes the destruction of fat cells. Once destroyed, those cells cannot store or accumulate fat.
You and Mallory will customize your Kybella® treatment regimen, including how many treatments you need, based on your desired chin profile.
Many patients experience visible results in 2 to 4 treatment sessions. During these sessions, Kybella® will be administered into the fat under your chin using multiple injections. Up to 6 treatment sessions may be administered spaced no less than one month apart. Typically, after the desired results are achieved, retreatment with Kybella® is not expected.
Even with a healthy lifestyle, it can be difficult to get rid of stubborn areas of fat beneath the chin. So, don’t let the double chin get you down any longer. Call today and schedule your complimentary consultation to see if you are a good candidate for Kybella®.
