Are you bothered by excess fat under your chin? Are you self-conscious about your double-chin? You are not alone and there is now a non-surgical solution.
Double chins are caused by excess fat that accumulates under the chin. This excess fat is a common concern and can cause a great deal of frustration and distress. The problem is common for both men and women of all ages and even after weight loss.
Until recently, the only treatment for those looking to achieve a sharper and more chiseled chin was surgery with anesthesia or invasive neck liposuction. Now, there is a new game-changing injectable procedure – Kybella.
Available at our Philadelphia office, Kybella is the first injectable substance that is FDA approved to treat submental fat. This solution is designed to dissolve stubborn under-the-chin fat, also known as the double chin.
Kybella is a fat-absorbing substance that is found naturally in the body. When injected, it destroys fat cells and leaves the skin significantly tighter and the jaw more contoured.
For best results, patients typically need anywhere from two to four Kybella treatments, each four to six weeks apart. The procedure takes about 20 minutes per session. Results from Kybella are noticeable at four to six weeks and will last for years.
Side effects from Kybella are minimal and will begin to resolve within three to five days after treatment.
Kybella offers a safe and effective way to combat chin fat and helps to improve the definition and contour of the jaw area.
