Nobody likes having a double chin. Luckily, getting rid of a double chin just got easier, faster and less painful with a new procedure called Kybella®. This new treatment makes the fat cells in your chin literally vanish. Forget liposuction or reduction surgery – now you can get a younger-looking, more defined jawline with this quick treatment, and see optimal results in about 3 weeks. At Regenerative Aesthetics & Laser NW, our Kybella® treatment can enhance your appearance, jawline, chin and neck area – and requires zero downtime.
Kybella® is dexycholic acid, which is a naturally-occurring substance that eliminates and breaks down fat cells. Once the fat cells are broken down, your body then absorbs and naturally flushes them out. It’s the only FDA-approved injectable treatment used for reducing the amount of fat that can accumulate under the chin, also called submental fat. A double chin is one area that can be hereditary or nonresponsive to exercise or weight loss. In the past liposuction or surgery was the only option.
This safe, non-invasive treatment is so quick; it can be done on your lunch hour. It involves a consultation to determine your goals, then the injection area on your chin or neck will be marked, and numbed with either ice or a topical numbing agent, and then the injection treatment will start. You may experience some swelling – which is an indication that the treatment is working. The swelling should diminish after 48 hours, and you will see increasingly noticeable results over the next 3-6 weeks. More than one treatment may be needed, depending on individual goals.
