Would you like to transform the appearance of that part of your face and neck this year? You should know – with Kybella® injectables, you absolutely can!

Non-surgical double chin removal

While you don’t like the appearance of your double chin, you might not be ready to pursue cosmetic surgery in order to reshape that area of your face and neck. Surgery comes with both risks and recovery time.

Kybella offers a non-surgical path toward slimming and sculpting the shape of your chin and the area beneath. You don’t need to worry about incisions or sutures with Kybella treatment. 

Instead, Kybella uses injectable acid to safely dissolve and break down fat cells in a targeted treatment area. Numbing medication keeps you from feeling discomfort during the injection procedure.

Kybella injections literally melt away the fat that forms your double chin. We use multiple injection points to ensure that your results are evenly distributed in the treatment area.

The active agent in your injection is a synthesized type of deoxycholic acid, a naturally-occurring substance that works to destroy fat cells. After being targeted with this injectable acid, destroyed fat cells can’t store fat any longer.

The path toward slimming your face and neck

At Apex Dermatology, we work with you on the ideal path toward your aesthetic and cosmetic goals. We take your concerns around surgery and preferences for minimally-invasive procedures into account, and advise you on what you can reasonably expect in terms of results.

When it comes to Kybella, we typically recommend multiple injection treatment sessions for you to see your best possible results. We space your sessions optimally apart for maximum sculpting power.

While your injection causes immediate fat cell destruction, it takes some time for your body to absorb and flush away the destroyed cells. You might see some swelling in the treatment area for a few weeks, or as long as a month. Bruising at injection sites can also result. Talk to your provider at Apex Dermatology if you have concerns related to bruising.

We can also pair your double chin reduction procedure with other cosmetic techniques to improve the appearance of your lower facial area. Many of our patients benefit from pairing Kybella treatment with Thermage sessions designed to tighten up loose skin remaining in the treatment area after fat destruction, for just one example.  

If you worry you are not a candidate for Kybella or have a different threshold for downtime, we also offer TrusculptiD and Morpheus8 to permanently melt fat and tighten skin to reshape and restore the under chin area and other areas.

Realizing your aesthetic goals

With today’s non-surgical cosmetic procedures, no one has to learn to live with unwanted fat, loose or sagging skin, or visible lines or wrinkles. Kybella injections are the next step in facial sculpting and body contouring, getting rid of fat stored in your lower chin and neck for good.
