Double Chin Treatment
Non-Surgical Double Chin Treatment
Now you see it. Now you don't
Did you catch a glimpse of a double chin in the mirror? Perhaps you have noticed a little extra fullness under your chin during a Skype or Facetime conversation or on social media photos. Regardless of when you first noticed it, a double chin may cause you to feel bad about the way you look. Recently a survey of both men and women revealed that 1 in 4 adults are bothered by their double chin. Fortunately, an innovative injectable melts double chin fat without surgery.
Kybella® permanently eliminates excess fat below your chin also known as submental fullness. Regardless of weight loss in other areas of your body, certain fat cells seem to persist. Kybella® may be the right choice for you if:
- You have extra fat under your chin, also known as “sub-mental fullness”
- You want to reduce the fat below your chin, but don’t want to have surgery
- You want to avoid the downtime of surgery or more invasive procedures
- You feel the extra chin fullness is making you look older than you are
- You feel the extra chin fullness is making you look heavier than you are
- You would feel more confident without a double chin
Many MedSpas charge clients based on how much Kybella is used during a treatment. At Gonyon Cosmetic and Plastic Surgery, we are focused on providing you the treatment regimen that will produce the best results. Our Kybella prices are “per treatment” and include the amount of Kybella necessary to achieve the results you desire. During your consultation, our Certified Registered Nurse Injector will make a customized treatment regimen to fit your needs.
More people are being treated with Kybella® every day. The benefits of Kybella® are:
- Fat cells are gone for good. The destroyed fat cells can no longer store fat, so results are PERMANENT.
- No surgery, no downtime. Anesthesia is NOT needed with Kybella®. Just a series of injections.
- Safe and effective. Kybella® has been approved by the FDA as safe and effective for reducing sub-mental fullness.
- None of the drawbacks of liposuction. Kybella® provides an effective way to reduce sub-mental fullness without invasive surgery.
Although you may want to see results right away, patience is important since multiple treatments are usually necessary to experience the best results. It can take the body 6-12 weeks to process the fat that is being cleared from the area.
Because every patient’s body is different, our Certified Registered Nurse Injector will make a customized recommendations for the number of treatments that will be needed to achieve the best results. Treatment schedule will depend on how much fat is present under the chin.
In most instances, 2-6 treatments are recommended.
Deoxycholic acid is a type of acid that naturally occurs in the body in other areas. Within your body, it breaks apart and processes dietary fat. Kybella® makes use of this natural fat-eliminating technology. The active ingredient in Kybella® is a synthetic version of deoxycholic acid. With simple, non-surgical injections, Kybella® eliminates targeted fat cells, allowing the body to flush it out as waste over the weeks following the injection.
The great thing about Kybella® is that it is non-surgical, which means virtually NO DOWNTIME. You may notice swelling or bruising below your chin, but most people have no problem going back to their normal activities after their appointment.
The actual injection takes 15-20 minutes. Appointment times usually takes 45 minutes to 1 hour in order to ice/numb the area and mark the skin prior to injection.
Before the injection, ice is applied to the treatment area for 20-30 minutes, to help ensure a comfortable treatment. Icing is recommended after the treatment to help reduce swelling and discomfort.
