Kybella Treatment for Excess Fat Underneath the Chin
If you feel self-conscious about excess fat underneath your chin, also known as a double chin, Lake Oswego Vein & Aesthetic offers Kybella, a revolutionary injectable treatment that works to damage unwanted fat cells in this targeted area.*
Often genetic, submental fullness can be a source of discomfort, making one appear older, heavier and less attractive than they feel. Unfortunately, diet and exercise can’t always spot treat areas like the double chin, so even with a healthy lifestyle, this issue can persist.
Causes of a Double Chin:
- Weight Gain
Kybella is an FDA-approved injectable treatment that can help reduce the appearance of a double chin, helping you achieve a slimmer, more youthful profile.* Since Kybella is nonsurgical and requires minimal downtime*, scheduling your treatment is simple and can even be done in the middle of a busy day.
How Kybella Works
Kybella’s active ingredient is Deoxycholic acid, a naturally occurring molecule in the human body that helps break down and damage fat cells.
After an initial consultation with Dr. Shakir who will determine if Kybella is right for you, she will begin the treatment by injecting Kybella into multiple small areas underneath the chin, specifically in the spots that are holding on to excess fat. In the weeks following treatment, the areas injected with Kybella may reduce, helping your bothersome double chin diminish.* Depending on your desired outcome, multiple treatments of Kybella may be needed. Many people have noticed improvements after 2-4 treatments.* Thankfully, once the treated fat cells are destroyed, they can no longer store unwanted fat.
After the treatment, you may feel a slight tenderness, swelling or numbness in the treated area but these minor discomforts should subside within a few days.*
