Patients visit Skin Center in Fort Lauderdale, FL for improvement on a range of issues caused by aging including sagging skin, smile lines, and skin discoloration. One problem that some patients report is the dreaded “double chin.” An injectable called Kybella may be a solution. Understand how Kybella works and the benefits of this revolutionary chin treatment, then take time out of your schedule for a skin care consultation.
What Is Kybella?
Kybella is made with an ingredient called deoxycholic acid, which slowly breaks down fat under the skin. When injected, Kybella can significantly decrease the look of a “double chin,” restoring the neck area to a slimmer and more youthful appearance over the course of several months. A double chin is caused by excess fat that builds up over time, causing the chin to dip lower due to the natural effects of gravity. After Kybella is injected, the fat cells eventually leave the folds of the chin and are eliminated as waste. You may need up to six sessions with your dermatologist to get the best possible results.
The Kybella Procedure
Your Fort Lauderdale, FL skin doctor will examine your chin carefully and outline several injection points. The needle is gently inserted over the course of about 15 minutes as you lie back in your chair, relaxing. You should be able to return to most normal activities after the visit. Additional sessions will be scheduled about a month apart.
One important advantage of Kybella is that once the fat cells go away and you get your chin to look more contoured, you likely won’t have to revisit your skin doctor again for future treatments. Your lower face, neck, and chin will continue to look younger, smoother, and svelte. Also, for many patients having injections is preferable to having a surgical procedure.
