Injection Lipolysis: A new treatment for chin and neck contouring.

It is perhaps a surprising fact that 2/3 of patients are bothered by a double chin (submental fullness)? If you’re one of the many who are frustrated with excess fat under your chin, there’s good news! Kybella™, a new innovative injection lipolysis treatment, can now help redefine your chin and neck contour non-surgically.

Kybella is a minimally invasive injectable treatment that effectively reduces submental fullness without the need for surgery or anaesthesia and involving little-to-no downtime, making it a wonderful alternative to more invasive procedures. Importantly, as an FDA approved treatment, it is also safe and effective. The main component of Kybella is a non-human/non-animal formulation of deoxycholic acid, a molecule that naturally occurs in your body to help absorb and break down dietary fat. When injected directly into moderate to severe pockets of fat cells under your chin, Kybella effectively destroys the cells and prevents them from storing or accumulating fat in the future. To avoid damaging surrounding tissue, it’s critical that you choose an experienced, trained injector for your treatment.

With Kybella, patients can see dramatic results after just a few short treatments—without a long recovery period, discomfort, or obvious side effects. In studies, Kybella has shown high patient satisfaction rates: almost 80% of patients were thrilled with the improved appearance of their face and chin and reported an improvement in confidence!
