Double chin? We may be able to help!
Submental fullness, often referred to as “double chin”, is a common yet undertreated facial aesthetic condition that can impact a broad range of adults. Causes may include:
- Weight gain
We now have 2 options to treat this condition!
KYBELLA™ is the first and only FDA-approved injectable treatment that improves the appearance of submental fullness. KYBELLA™ is an in-office procedure that takes about 15 to 20 minutes and is customized to help you achieve your treatment goals.
The active ingredient in KYBELLA™ is deoxycholic acid, a naturally occurring molecule in the body that breaks down fat cells. Once destroyed, those cells cannot store or accumulate fat.
The most common side effects of KYBELLA™ include swelling, bruising, pain, numbness, redness, and areas of hardness in the treatment area.
The second option for treating the "double chin" is CoolSculpting®
CoolSculpting® is the only FDA-cleared procedure to use controlled cooling to safely target and eliminate diet- and exercise-resistant fat.
CoolSculpting® technology works by safely delivering precisely controlled cooling to crystallize fat cells causing them to die. Your body naturally processes the fat and eliminates the dead cells, leaving a more sculpted you.
The most common side effects of CoolSculpting® are temporary numbness, redness, swelling, bruising or tingling at the treatment site.
In the weeks and months following your procedure, your body naturally eliminates the dead cells. Once the treated fat cells are gone, they're gone for good.
If you are interested in treating submental fullness, or your double chin, please schedule a consultation to discuss which treatment is right for you.
