As we age, many of us find that what used to be smooth and tight, begins to loosen and sag. A very common area for this change is under the chin. Loose skin and fat deposits beneath your chin (also known as “double chin”) are a telltale sign of aging. In fact, more than 65% of the population complains of this condition. But there is a very simple way to correct this problem. And it doesn’t even involve surgery.
A new, FDA-approved prescription medicine for adults makes eliminating a double chin an out-patient procedure, something that can be taken care of in a few office visits.
Kybella destroys fat cells in the treatment area (below your chin), which naturally gives you a slimmer or more chiseled appearance at the end of your treatment sessions.
With just 2 to 6, non-surgical, 20-minute, in-office treatment sessions, we can reduce the submental fat that causes your double chin—forever. Destroyed fat cells cannot accumulate or store fat, which is why re-treatment is typically unnecessary.
Recovery is generally very easy and downtime is minimal. We typically recommend applying ice to the treatment area for 10 – 15 minutes after a session. That’s it!
An extremely high percentage of patients are pleased with their new appearance after a Kybella treatment session. Improved confidence and increased happiness are often sited as benefits of the treatment by patients who undergo the simple procedure.
