We’re thrilled to announce that we now offer dermal fillers that address stubborn fat pockets including double chins. There are areas of fat on our body that won’t budge no matter how much we diet and exercise. One of the most common conditions is chin fat, also known as a “wattle” or double chin. Many members of our weight loss clinics want to target this stubborn pockets of fat but they can be very difficult to eliminate.
The double chin, which is formally known as “submental fullness,” can be caused by weight gain, diminished skin elasticity and genetics. Some people have a genetic predisposition to store fat in this area, regardless of their weight. While chin fat can be resistant to diet and exercise, there are other ways to banish the wattle and restore confidence.
Until recently, the only way to eliminate stubborn chin fat was either with a chin lift, facelift or liposuction, both of which require anesthesia. There is also the risk of many side effects, such as swelling, bruising, infection and uneven results. Fortunately for those suffering from this condition, Kybella was developed. Like other dermal fillers, it’s a safe, nonsurgical solution for addressing problem areas.
Kybella is the first and only FDA-approved injectable filler that targets the double chin. It’s primarily composed of a synthetic form of deoxycholic acid that destroys fat cells so they can be absorbed and eliminated. When it’s injected to the chin area, it permanently destroys those fat cells. The best part about this injectable solution is that once the fat is banished, it won’t return.
Once you are satisfied with your results, there is no maintenance or return visits needed. Members of our medical weight loss clinics experience a younger, refreshed appearance and a more balanced, defined profile. All of our Kybella patients report that their confidence is restored and they feel more beautiful.
Kybella is completely non-invasive and requires no anesthesia. There is no downtime and no restrictions—patients can go back to work and exercise the same day. Bruising and swelling are mild and last somewhere between 48 hours to a week.
There is no better, safer solution for banishing a double chin and redefining your jawline. Visit this link to learn more about the dermal fillers, microneedling and other anti-aging solutions we offer.
