You get a double chin or sub-mental fullness when there is a buildup of excess fat below the chin. This can be because of your genes or aging and might not necessarily be an indication of weight gain.
You can permanently get rid of the double chin at a medi spa here in Jericho using kybella, an FDA approved treatment.
What is Kybella?
A kybella injection contains deoxycholic acid. Your body produces deoxycholic acid, which helps break down fats and absorb them. Synthetic deoxycholic acid works in the same way. When injected, it destroys your sub-mental fat causing a substantial decline in sub-mental fullness.
Before you start treatment, you will undergo complimentary consultation with a qualified cosmetic physician who will determine your suitability for the procedure. The treatment is for both men and women but unsuitable for those pregnant and breastfeeding.
The doctor will fully explain the procedure and perform an exam of your facial tissue. The process typically takes about 20 minutes. It involves multiple injections to several areas carefully mapped out on your chin under local anesthesia for comfort.
Physicians may customize treatment for particular patients. You may need 3-6 sessions spaced at least a month apart depending on the degree of sub-mental fullness.
What to Expect After Treatment
The most common side effects include bruising, redness, and swelling around the area of treatment; all of which subside within a week. There are no downtimes required after the procedure. You can resume exercise after 48 hours and wear makeup.
Most clients see a 50% reduction of their chin after two treatment sessions, but always remember patients are different.
Over 90% of clients who undergo kybella treatment achieve a strong and visible jawline with a better cervicomental angle. This procedure also makes the skin on your chin look supple and firm by stimulating the generation of collagen.
Kybella is a safe, tried and tested non-invasive method to get rid of your double chin.
