Learn about the FDA-approved Kybella injectable treatment for double chin removal
Is the area beneath your chin making you look older and heavier than you really are? Genetics, weight gain, and aging skin can all contribute to the appearance of a double chin. No matter the cause, getting rid of fullness under the chin can be very difficult. Before now, patients had few options besides invasive liposuction surgery to thin and contour the under-chin area, but fortunately, Kybella injectable treatment has now changed that paradigm! At SkinProvement Dermatology New York, Dr. Stephen Comite offers this revolutionary double chin removal treatment to patients in the New York area.
Kybella: The only FDA-approved injectable double chin treatment
Kybella is an injectable medicine approved by the FDA to treat the appearance of moderate to severe fat beneath the chin. It uses synthetic deoxycholic acid, a molecule that naturally occurs in the body, to break down the fat beneath the chin. The body then metabolizes the fat cells, so they can no longer store fat beneath the chin. Dr. Comite uses a precise injection technique and dose to ensure that you achieve the best results possible for your unique facial, chin, and neck contours.
Benefits of Kybella
Since its introduction, more and more patients have been choosing Kybella to address the under-chin problem area because of its many benefits. Kybella is:
- Effective: In a clinical trial, 83 percent of patients reported a significant improvement in satisfaction with their appearance.
- Permanent: After the fat cells are destroyed, the body naturally flushes them away – permanently! While other types of cosmetic injectables like Botox and Juvéderm are temporary and require touch-up treatments, the results you achieve with Kybella can last for a lifetime. However, it is important to understand that weight gain and changes in your skin can lead to the need for maintenance treatments in the future.
- Safe: Serious side effects are uncommon. We perform an in-depth consultation before your treatment to ensure Kybella is right for you and your unique medical history. We talk with you at length about taking care of yourself post-treatment to ensure the best recovery.
What to expect
The first step in treating your under-chin area with Kybella is scheduling a consultation with Dr. Comite, who will evaluate your submental fullness and discuss your medical history to ensure that Kybella is a good option for your specific situation.
When you come in for your treatment, we first mark the areas that will be injected and may apply an ice pack or topical numbing agent to help keep you comfortable during the injection process. After your treatment, you may experience discomfort, bruising, redness, numbness, or swelling in the injection area; these side effects typically dissipate within a few days. You will begin to see your results about three to four weeks after the first injections, and most patients benefit from a series of three to four treatment sessions to achieve optimal results.
