When you eat right and exercise, it can be frustrating to see that the excess fat under your chin won’t reduce. A double chin is particularly resistant, and it can be an uphill battle to reduce the facial fat under the chin. This tendency is called “submental fullness.” While surgery or liposuction is an option, many patients do not want the downtime associated with surgery . We’re happy to offer a nonsurgical alternative to our patients: Kybella, the only FDA-approved treatment for submental fullness.

A Double Chin Can Be Improved with Kybella

A double chin has a few different causes, including weight gain, genetics, and as part of the aging process. Even after losing weight and getting your body into a healthier, trimmer condition, a double chin can remain, leaving you looking older and heavier than you are. Kybella is one of the most exciting advances in cosmetic technology, and works to reduce a double chin by working with your body’s natural fat elimination processes.

How Does Kybella Work?

Kybella is a patented, FDA-approved treatment of submental fullness via injection. It is a synthetic version of deoxycholic acid, a chemical produced naturally by the human body that helps to break down fat. Kybella is designed to specifically target and kill fat cells; these are then processed by the body and shed naturally over the weeks and months ahead. Fat in the body is stored in fat cells, so when the number of cells in the area is reduced, the double chin starts to melt away.

Kybella produces truly impressive results, and at Criswell & Criswell, we are excited to offer this new treatment to our patients. Imagine your face without the sagging, unattractive double chin – it can shave years off your facial appearance. Depending upon the amount of fat in the area and your aesthetic goal, most patients require between two and three treatments. Patients should expect some swelling after the treatment which generally dissipates a few days to a week after treatment.

Helping Men and Women Correct a Double Chin with Kybella

Our results show in happy customers who have renewed self-esteem once an unattractive double chin has been slimmed, trimmed, and reduced. The face looks younger, fresher, and more appealing without a double chin in the way. At our practice, we can help you reduce the appearance of a double chin with Kybella injections. Talk to us about your cosmetic goals – we are here to help you restore and rejuvenate your face and body.

Is Kybella Right for Me?

Kybella is a prescription medication, FDA-approved, appropriate for adult candidates 18 and over. Any medical procedure, even a non-invasive treatment such as Kybella, requires a full evaluation of your general health, your health history, and the medications and supplements you currently take. If you have a double chin, and want to avoid surgery, liposuction, or other invasive treatment, we urge you to visit us and find out if you are a candidate for this highly effective, innovative treatment. Kybella treatments offer new hope for those who are tired of seeing a double chin, and are at a healthy weight and in good general health.
