As a result of aging, weight gain or heredity, men and women can develop an accumulation of fat in the lower face, or “double chin.” This area is difficult to target with diet and exercise, and although there are surgical procedures available to correct this problematic area, the extensive healing and downtime involved is not always ideal. For patients who have been waiting for a faster, more comfortable way to treat excess fat underneath the chin, the wait is over with Kybella™ injectable treatments.
At About Face Medical Aesthetics in Stratham, New Hampshire, we offer Kybella™ to create a tighter, more youthful facial profile with no healing or downtime. Contact us today to schedule a consultation with our medical team and find out if Kybella™ is right for you.
What is Kybella™?
Extra fat underneath the chin affects millions of men and women, and can be frustrating for those who are working to maintain tight skin and firm body contours. The first injectable treatment of its kind, Kybella™ is a unique formulation of deoxycholic acid, which is found naturally in the body and aids in the breakdown and absorption of fat. When injected into the fat of the chin area by our medical team, Kybella™ permanently destroys fat cells and disables them from accumulating and storing fat in the future.
A treatment that is gaining attention worldwide, the benefits of Kybella™ continue to be featured in various news outlets, including The New York Times.
When Will I See Results and How Long Will They Last?
FDA-approved and specially designed for moderate to severe submental fat underneath the chin, Kybella™ typically creates visibly-improved contours after two to four sessions, depending on your individual condition and the cosmetic goals discussed with our medical team during your consultation. After treatment, the fat cells are permanently destroyed, but future weight gain, pregnancy, aging, and other factors can potentially reverse results. At About Face Medical Aesthetics, our medical team has been extensively trained in this procedure, ensuring optimal results that look and feel natural.
Is Kybella™ Safe?
Kybella™ has been clinically tested and has a proven safety profile, with over 2,000 patients treated worldwide. Deoxycholic acid is a molecule that is easily recognized and processed by your body, significantly reducing the risk of adverse effects. Slight bruising, swelling, and redness of injection sites are common and temporary side effects, which should subside shortly after treatment. When administered by medical professionals such as our medical team at About Face, the incidence of adverse effects is minimal.
Am I a Good Candidate for Kybella™?
If the fullness of your chin is a source of self-consciousness for you, you may be a good candidate for Kybella™ injectable treatments. During your consultation, our medical team will evaluate your health, medical history, cosmetic goals and treatment expectations in order to determine if Kybella™ is the best course of treatment. Results may vary from patient to patient, and we will advise you on how many sessions you may need as well as any specific risks or side effects that may apply to you. In some cases patients also do Coolsculpting to freeze fat in other areas.
The wait for a faster, non-surgical solution to excess fat in the chin is over. Contact About Face Medical Aesthetics today to schedule a consultation and discover the benefits of Kybella™ to destroy fat and create tighter, more elevated contours in your chin and jawline.
