Submental fullness, or a “double chin,” can occur in men and women even when they are at a healthy weight due to the way their body naturally deposits fat. Until recently, the only options for double chin removal were surgical, but fortunately, patients now have a minimally invasive option : Kybella® injections. At DSA Dermatology in Plano, Texas, Dr. Achtman, Dr. McConnell, Dr. Jordan Achtman , and their dedicated team are proud to offer this double chin treatment option to help remove unwanted fat, visually lift your face, and take years off your appearance.
How Kybella works
Deoxycholic acid is the key ingredient in Kybella, which is a molecule that naturally occurs in the human body’s digestive tract. After it is strategically injected into precise locations under the chin, the deoxycholic acid works to kill the unwanted fat cells. Then they are flushed away through your body’s natural elimination pathways. The end result is a trimmer under-chin area, improving your facial profile and overall appearance when talking to others, smiling in photos, and engaging in your daily activities.
It is important to note that Kybella is only approved for the under-chin area, and it is not designed for larger body areas. Some patients may need a series of multiple treatments to achieve their desired results.
Benefits of Kybella treatment
After consulting with a qualified medical professional, patients may choose Kybella over other double chin removal alternatives because it:
- Is minimally invasive and does not require surgery – no incisions, sutures, or post-op recovery
- Is FDA-approved and uses an ingredient that naturally occurs in your body
- Provides permanent results – after the fat cells are eliminated, they are gone for good
- Requires little to no downtime – you can resume your daily activities right away
- Is fast and easy – at DSA Dermatology, we work with patients to design the best treatment plan for their needs and desired end results, and we ensure that you are comfortable and relaxed throughout the procedure.
