Double chin treatment


Do you have extra skin or fat below your chin? As we age, our bodies aren’t as efficient in processing fat, often resulting in a double chin. Kybella® helps eliminate chin fat, and is available at bionwoRx.

What is Kybella?

Kybella® is a simple, non-surgical injectable procedure designed to improve the appearance of extra fat under the chin, often known as a double chin. It is the only FDA-approved treatment that targets the fat cells under the chin. This medication is identical to a chemical that the human body naturally produces, called deoxycholic acid. Deoxycholic acid helps to absorb fat. It works by destroying fat cells. Once those cells are destroyed, those cells will no longer store fat. This means they cannot gain back the fat they previously held, making it an extremely effective treatment. The course of treatment is spread across several sessions that span over several months. It is a quick procedure with relatively few side effects and risks.

The cost varies from patient to patient. Depending on the condition of your neck and chin area, multiple injections are usually required. Oftentimes, patients opt to combine this procedure with another dermal filler treatment, further altering the final cost.

What can I expect?

Double chin treatment

To begin, your medical provider takes “before” images of you when you arrive for your appointment. Next, she applies a numbing cream underneath your chin. After that, she applies a temporary tattoo dot grid that serves as a guide. Then, she administers roughly 10 to 50 injections over the course of several minutes. The numbing cream works to minimize discomfort. Finally, she wraps you in a compression bandage. Your chin may feel slightly sore. The medication generally works best after 2 to 4 treatments, spaced six weeks apart.
