Is there more of you to love with extra fullness beneath your chin? Maybe it’s something you’ve had your whole life, something that developed over the years, or something you noticed recently. This is a condition called sub-mental fullness, which some people refer to as “double chin.” You don’t have to be overweight to have fullness under your chin. And sometimes, no matter how much you exercise or diet, the condition may not go away. This condition is often a result of genetics or the aging process. Now there is a non-invasive, safe way to melt the double part of your chin away.
The active ingredient in Kybella® is synthetic deoxycholic acid which is a naturally occurring molecule in the body that aids in the breakdown and absorption of dietary fat. When injected into the fat beneath the chin, Kybella® destroys fat cells, resulting in a noticeable reduction in fullness under the chin. Once destroyed, these cells can no longer store or accumulate fat, so further treatment is not expected once the desired aesthetic goal is reached. At Aesthetica Skin Health & Wellness, we are trained specialists in Kybella® administration. At each treatment, the patient receives multiple small injections under the chin—the injection process takes about 15 to 20 minutes. The exact number of injections and treatment sessions will depend on the amount of fat under the chin and the patient’s desired profile or goal.
