The dreaded double chin is challenging to treat, despite the exercises and skin tightening creams. Of course, a healthy lifestyle that incorporates a healthy diet, exercise and sleep hygiene is essential, but still may not remove the stubborn fat.
My name is Dr. Christine Eros, and I’m a board-certified family physician and founder of Eros Beauty and Wellness. I offer a variety of treatments to help you look more youthful. Kybella® is definite a treatment of choice to permanently remove unwanted fat in many areas, especially the chin.
For many patients, contouring the jawline and eliminating stubborn fat beneath the chin are high on their aesthetic goals list. The appearance of an extra chin, even when the face is at rest, can make you look heavier than you actually are, which is why I highly recommend Kybella® to target this stubborn area.
What Is Kybella®?
Kybella® is another name for deoxycholic acid: a synthetic preparation of naturally-occurring chemicals that breaks down fat inside the body. Kybella® is a cytolytic drug, and when it’s injected into fat tissue, it physically destroys the cell membranes, causing them to disintegrate, rupture, and disappear, all with a simple injection.
How Is Kybella® Administered?
Kybella® can banish the double chin that shows itself on your lovely face due to genetics, aging, and weight gain. It is an injection that can only be administered by a trained professional experienced in injections. When you come in for your consultation, we will first discuss your goals and expectations. Then, we will construct a treatment plan based on your facial structure and the amount of fat tissue under your chin. Treatment involves simple injections underneath the chin. The active ingredients in Kybella® will go to work to break down and absorb fat cells. Once the cells are destroyed, they can no longer accumulate and store fat.
Together we will decide on the number of treatments necessary to provide you with the shape and contour of your jaw and the amount of fat you have underneath your chin. The results of Kybella® are permanent, so once we’ve reached your desired goals, treatments are no longer necessary, as long as you maintain a healthy lifestyle.
The Benefits of Kybella®
The benefits of Kybella® are, first and foremost, to dramatically improve your self-confidence and self-image. This minimally invasive technique does not require incisions or sutures. The treatment can cause swelling and mild tenderness as the fat cells are destroyed, and provides youthful and permanent results that will hopefully have you posing in every photo from now on.
