Just the mention of the term “double chin” is heart-wrenching for some people. This is because it’s such a common and frustrating problem for many of us. While some people grow out of their double chins, others do not. Unfortunately, we can’t target where we lose fat, meaning a double chin can be nearly impossible to get rid of on our own if we’re at a healthy weight. Fortunately, Kybella®can help.
Many people have tried to do neck and chin exercises thinking that this would make their double chin, formally known as submental fullness, go away. The truth is that there is no exercise that you can do to make stubborn fat go away, especially if you are already at a healthy weight.
A Non-Surgical Alternative to Liposuction
Just a few years ago, just about the only option available when it came to getting rid of a double chin was to get liposuction. Of course, not everyone is a fan of this idea. Liposuction is a surgical procedure, and few people are truly ready to go under the knife to get rid of their dreaded double chin.
Then, a new option became available to help those struggling with submental fullness. That option is Kybella®. This non-surgical treatment involves injecting deoxycholic acid directly underneath the chin to destroy the stubborn fat in the area. Since Kybella® is a non-surgical procedure, you don’t have to worry about the common concerns that come with surgery such as anesthesia, a lengthy recovery period or significant risks.
What Can I Expect from Treatment?
Treatment begins by visiting our clinic and going through an initial consultation. During this consultation, our specialist will examine your submental fullness to determine that you will make a good candidate for treatment. We will examine the area and ensure that it is unwanted fat that is giving you your double chin and not loose, excess skin.
Once it is determined that you are a good candidate for Kybella®, we will lay out a personalized treatment plan for your needs and goals. The number of injections and treatment sessions you will need will vary depending on factors such as the severity of your double chin. Patients typically come in for a maximum of six treatment sessions, each spaced about a month apart.
Kybella® can help you get your profile back and say goodbye to your double chin once and for all. We are pleased to offer this popular treatment at Aesthetic Assets, located conveniently in Scottsdale. Contact us today to book your first appointment and find out if this treatment is right for you!
