It’s spring time now and with warmer weather on the way the scarves are coming off! This is a great time to talk about a new procedure that treats excess fat under the chin. Even when you’re in good shape, it’s common to have an unwanted fatty deposit under the chin, giving the impression of a “turkey gobbler.” With the Kybella injections, the unsightly “double chin” can be sculpted away without the need for surgery, incisions or downtime.
Kybella is one of the newest treatments in the cosmetic world and is being met with quite a bit of fanfare. The injection is made of deoxycholic acid, which is known for its ability to dissolve submental fat and re-contour the neck and chin area safely and quickly. The body then naturally eliminates the excess fat.
It’s well-known that specific pockets of fat, such as those under the chin, rarely respond to additional dieting or exercise. Sculpting stubborn pockets of fat under the chin can be accomplished through targeting them with treatments such as Kybella. A series of 2-6 treatments may be necessary. In some cases, Ultherapy skin tightening with focused ultrasound may be used as a complement to enhance results after your Kybella treatment. In other cases, liposuction may be the best option depending on our Doctor’s analysis of the area.
Our board-certified dermatologist Dr. Kevin Pinski is very excited about the results they have been able to achieve with this new procedure.
