My Double Chin Has Got to Go!

Double chins are difficult to go away, even with successful weight loss or maintaining a healthy weight, they can be stubborn and stick around. Double chins occur more often as we age and our facial structure changes and it can also be genetic. All of this can feel discouraging, but there are non-surgical solutions that work to get rid of that extra fat forever….that is right! The fat will go away forever. Have you heard of Kybella or deoxycholic acid injections? These injections are FDA approved to treat the double chin or submental area for permanent fat removal. It is also used to treat fat in other areas of the body as well, like bra fat, back fat, love handles, and the list goes on.

Deoxycholic acid is a substance made by our very own gallbladder to break down and emulsify fat. The injection of Kybella or deoxycholic acid does the same thing when injected into a targeted area of fat. Once injected, the fat becomes destroyed in as little one session. The procedure is quick and takes minutes. Most clients require about 1-6 sessions at least one month apart.

There is virtually no prep for the appointment but there is some post care you will want to be aware of. Clients will experience some degree of swelling, and this may contribute to sensation disturbance for a short time while the swelling is present, and bruising is common in about 75% of the individuals injected. Swelling can be mild to heavy, although being that we have a medical background in addition to our aesthetic experience, we have many tricks up our sleeve to help our clients reduce the swelling and get back to normal life FAST! Swelling usually occurs within minutes to hours after the procedure and lasts for about 2-3 days and then goes away quickly after.

Treating this area gives clients the power of confidence, by enhancing their natural features and beauty and confidence is unstoppable.
