Even if you adopt healthy lifestyle habits, stubborn fat pockets can develop in unsightly areas including under your chin. A double chin is excess fat or skin that’s loose or sags and can make you feel self-conscious. Kybella double chin treatment is an injection Dr. Towhidian uses to improve the profile of moderate to severe under-chin fat and optimize your overall appearance.
When choosing Kybella treatment you can achieve the following cosmetic benefits:
Kybella injections can offer you the same results as surgical procedures but without cutting, general anesthesia, addictive medications, or downtime.
Kybella is an FDA-approved fat reduction injection containing an active ingredient called deoxycholic acid, which is a naturally occurring molecule your body uses to break down and absorb dietary fat. Kybella works by destroying fat cells under your chin, to promote sharper contours and prevent future fat accumulation. Maintaining a healthy weight optimizes long-term results.
Kybella double chin treatment isn’t a weight loss solution, but it can diminish stubborn fat bulges under your chin. To determine if the treatment is right for you, Dr. Towhidian reviews your medical history, examines under your chin, and discusses your desired outcome.
If Kybella treatment is right for you, Dr. Towhidian can numb the treatment area to make the procedure feel comfortable. He slowly injects Kybella into multiple targeted areas of your skin right in the office. The procedure may take 15-20 minutes to complete.
After Kybella injections, you might experience some redness, swelling, tenderness, or numbness at the injection site but these symptoms soon subside. You can apply ice to the area as needed to reduce swelling. The Total Cosmetix team may recommend a series of three to six treatments to help you achieve the best possible outcome. For best results, maintain a healthy weight.
Don’t let under-chin fat ruin your confidence or undergo invasive surgery when you don’t have to. Schedule a consultation with Total Cosmetix over the phone or online to find out if Kybella double chin treatment is right for you.
