If you have a double chin and have been contemplating plastic surgery, ForeverYoung MedSpa for Health & Wellness located in Deerfield, Chicago’s North Shore suburbs is one of the first treatment centers to offer a non-invasive solution to destroying fat under the chin. KYBELLA™ (deoxycholic acid) injection is the first and only FDA-approved nonsurgical treatment that contours and improves the appearance of submental fullness. Do you have some extra fullness beneath your chin? Maybe it’s something you’ve had your whole life, something that developed over the years, or something you noticed recently. This is a condition called submental fullness, which some people refer to as “double chin.”
KYBELLA® MAY HELP IMPROVE YOUR CHIN PROFILE
Submental fullness, sometimes referred to as “double chin”, is a common yet undertreated facial aesthetic condition. It 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.
If you’re bothered by submental fullness, you’re not alone. According to a 2014 survey conducted by the American Society for Dermatologic Surgery (ASDS):
- 68% of people said they’re bothered by under-the-chin fullness, or double chin
- People are just as bothered by under-the-chin fullness as they are by lines and wrinkles around and under their eyes
What can I expect during my KYBELLA™ appointment?
You and your doctor will customize your KYBELLA™ treatment regimen, including how many treatments you need, based on your desired chin profile. Your doctor will give you a series of injections at each treatment session, which are spaced a month or more apart. Many patients experience visible contouring of their chin profile in two to four treatment sessions spaced at least one month apart. Up to 6 treatments may be administered.
Will I experience any side effects?
The safety profile of KYBELLA™ is well characterized. The most common side effects are swelling, bruising, pain, numbness, redness and areas of hardness around the treatment area.
How long will the results last?
When injected into the fat under your chin, KYBELLA™ causes the destruction of fat cells. Once destroyed, those cells cannot store or accumulate fat. After the aesthetic response is achieved, retreatment with KYBELLA™ is not expected.
VISIBLE RESULTS IN 2-4 TREATMENTS
