The dreaded double chin. Also called submental fat. It is an aesthetic problem for both men and women. Until now, treatments of submental fat have been limited to invasive, surgical procedures such as liposuction or fat excision and even complete neck reconstruction. Both aesthetic professionals and clients are seeking non-surgical treatment options for fat. Diet and exercise can help, but sometime, we are genetically predisposed to a double chin.
What is Kybella ?
The first and only FDA approved treatment for the double chin. It is a clear liquid that is injected with tiny needles and it dissolves the fat. SAY WHAT? That’s right. It disrupts the fat cells and your body does a beautiful job clearing out the fat and the debris. This also stimulates collagen! The result is fat reduction and skin tightening.
Does the fat come back?
No! Once the fat cell is gone it is gone for good. That’s the beauty of Kybella.
Before and after Kybella treatments.
Does it hurt?
We ice the treatment area and work quickly and then ice it after to reduce the sensation. Most people would describe it as a warm sensation. You go home with a reusable ice pack. Discomfort usually resolves quickly.
How many treatments do I need? Each person is different but typically 4 to 6 treatments are needed.
Is it expensive? Not compared to liposuction. We are currently running a special where you can save $50!
What’s the healing time? There is some swelling and tenderness after the procedure. This can last a few weeks as your body is doing its job clearing out the fat.
