Double Chin Treatment in New York NY area

How long does it take to see results from Kybella injections

Do you feel embarrassed to take photos due to a double chin? Do you hide from the camera to avoid having photographs taken because you look heavier than you really are? A double chin, referred to medically, as “submental fullness,” can be bothersome to both men and women. In the past, the only way to treat it was with surgical procedures. Fortunately, there’s a better way! 

At SkinProvement Dermatology New York, Dr. Stephen Comite and his team in New York, New York, can help you address submental fullness with a double chin treatment called Kybella.

What is Kybella?

Dr. Comite describes Kybella as a revolutionary treatment option for patients with a double chin. Diet and exercise will help improve the health and appearance of the body, but certain areas may remain stubborn when it comes to fat retention. Using Kybella injections, patients can enjoy a breakdown of the submental fat to achieve an improved contour to the chin, jaw, and neck area. This eliminates the need for  surgical procedures.

Kybella is formulated with deoxycholic acid, an ingredient that breaks down fat where it is injected. When injected into the chin area, patients can improve the area’s contours and appearance. This can boost confidence and self-esteem in patients who have struggled with fullness in this area.

How long does it take to see results?

The results of Kybella treatment can usually be seen within four to six weeks after the first session. However, patients must know that multiple treatments may be necessary for optimal results. Depending on the patient’s needs and goals, Dr. Comite and his team in New York, New York, will develop a personalized treatment plan to achieve the desired outcome.

Is there any downtime or recovery period?

Kybella treatment generally has minimal downtime and recovery period. Patients might notice some swelling and bruising in the treated area, but this typically resolves on its own within a few days, but can last several weeks. This means that patients can return to their daily activities immediately after their treatment in most cases. If uncomfortable, one can wear a mask.

Extremely knowledgeable, helpful, and experienced doctor (Dr. Comite) who was able to explain more than all the other doctors about my daughter’s acne challenges. I am excited to have found this center and believe we’ve found the answer to many of the problems we’ve encountered with skin issues. I will post again once we have experienced more treatment.
