No one likes the look of a double chin. As we mature, fat that settles under the chin can be persistent whether or not we have lost weight in other areas of the body. Kybella, a recently approved injectable treatment, can permanently reduce the size of fat cells in the area below the chin, making you look younger and lighter.
We assess your face, chin and neck profile, and then administer a series of injections in the areas best seemed fit. A synthetic form of a naturally-occurring molecule in the body, Kybella targets the fat cells in the treated areas, permanently destroying them. Like many other injectable procedures, it is a quick and easy process. The injections should take about 30 minutes to complete. You and your health care provider may decide that multiple treatments yield the best results.
