Kybella... The Double-Chin Solution

Kybella... The Double-Chin Solution

I’d like to introduce you to a product that works amazingly for that dreaded double chin. It’s called Kybella and it reduces the fat beneath the chin for a tight and nicely contoured jawline and neck. No more turkey neck!

How is this done? Well, the area to be treated is identified, then a topical anesthetic is applied to the skin for a few minutes for more comfort.  After this, tiny injections are done about every centimeter in the area outlined. This takes just a few minutes. The injections do cause some stinging, swelling, redness, numbness, firmness, and tenderness in the area. You may even have a little bruising in a few spots.  This normally lasts 1-2 weeks, but some have this for up to 30 days. It takes time for the treatment to work, so give it time. It doesn’t happen overnight, but will occur within a few months.

Most patients need two to four treatments, but some may require up to six. These are done 30 days apart. 

Photos are taken before and after so you can see the treatments are working. 

This is an easy way to help restore a more contoured jawline and neckline. 

Call me for more information and to schedule an appointment.
