New York patients discover a non-surgical injection for double chin reduction
Your appearance matters. With today’s technologies and the constant selfies, you may pay more attention to your face and your skin. Unfortunately, the angle of the camera draws attention to the chin and neck. Patients in New York can turn to Dr. Stephen Comite for a double chin reduction injection with Kybella. As a non-surgical double chin reduction, Kybella injections help patients get rid of unwanted fullness under the chin.
FDA approved treatment
Kybella is a revolutionary FDA approved injectable treatment. Made of deoxycholic acid, Kybella dissolves the fat under the chin creating a well-defined jawline and a more contoured neck. Kybella is manufactured by Allergan, the producers of Botox and Juvéderm. As a double chin reduction injection, the procedure does not involve surgery, anesthesia, or scarring.
Non-surgical double chin reduction
Patients may have fat or fullness under their chins due to genetics or lifestyle factors. When injected into the treatment area, Kybella removes the fat and contracts the neck. A consultation is needed to discuss your needs and expectations. This allows Dr. Comite to customize an appropriate treatment plan with optimal results.
Performed in the office, the treatment is done in as little as 15-20 minutes. After the initial Kybella injection, patients begin to notice an improvement in 6-8 weeks. Every patient is different. Some need a single treatment; others require more than one to achieve the desired results. If additional treatments are needed, treatments are performed at least one month apart.
Treatments with Kybella require little to no downtime. After the injections, patients may notice a warming sensation in the neck. Side effects are minimal but may include swelling, bruising, and numbness. The side effects will subside as the product breaks down fat cells in the treated area. Once the fat cells are broken down and eliminated by the body, they will not regrow in the same site.
Benefits of Kybella include:
- FDA approved
- Non-surgical injections
- Reduction of the double chin
- Improved chin and neck appearance
- Permanently destroyed fat cells
