Many men and women are unhappy with the appearance of a double chin. A double chin can make an individual appear heavier than they are and affect the appearance of the jaw line. When patients think about addressing this issue, they may believe their only option is plastic surgery. Cosmetic dermatology treatment options can contour the body and reduce fat in specific areas of the body. This includes treatment with Kybella injections.
Kybella is an injectable formulated with deoxycholic acid. This ingredient is FDA-approved to reduce submental fullness when injected into the area. It destroys the fat cells over the course of several weeks as the body naturally flushes them out. The result is a more defined chin and jaw line without surgery. The injections are administered by a trained professional to ensure safe and effective care. There are minimal side effects that may be experienced with Kybella including bruising, swelling, and numbness, but this will go away soon.*
Non-surgical treatment for a double chin is available to Bend, Oregon area patients with Kybella. At EsthetixMD Spa and Laser Center, both men and women can enjoy this treatment. Most individuals are appropriate candidates for Kybella, as long as they are over the age of 18 and have mild to moderate chin fullness.
