The dreaded double chin, or submental fullness, has been the bane of a well-sculpted jaw for many years. While past solutions only included going under the knife, advances in medicine have given us a non-surgical way to melt away the fat under the chin and produce a slimmer, more contoured jawline. Kybella® is an FDA-approved injectable made up of deoxycholic acid, a naturally-occurring molecule in the body that helps absorb fat. Once your desired results have been achieved, re-treatment is not necessary. You are simply left with a sleek and youthful-looking neckline without the need for a single incision!
Many people naturally store excess fat under their chin; this problematic aesthetic issue can be attributed to a variety of factors including aging, weight fluctuation, and genetics. Kybella® gives you a non-surgical alternative to treat this area safely and effectively. Dr. Bijan Farah is an accomplished and well-qualified physician who has been practicing medicine for several decades. His experience assures the best quality in all the medical and cosmetic treatments he offers his patients in Encino, CA and surrounding areas. He and his professional team provide customized procedures that are based on your unique goals and desires. With the use of Kybella®, our ultimate goal is to give you a jawline that is balanced, rejuvenating, and naturally pleasing with the rest of your facial contours!
Benefits of Kybella®
Since Kybella® is an injectable procedure, there are a variety of advantages to patients who select this as their treatment modality for eradicating the double chin area. They are as follows:
Contour your jaw area
Reduce unwanted chin fat without causing harm to surrounding tissue
No anesthesia required
Reduced cost as compared with surgery
How It Works
The beauty of the Kybella® treatment is in its simplicity. Each treatment session takes only 15-20 minutes and is done with a very small injection needle that only causes minimal if any, discomfort. The number of injections needed are based on the amount of fat that is present. Since Kybella® is a precise treatment that is designed to treat only the fat cells in the area, the surrounding tissue is not affected which means there is no downtime associated with the procedure. After the treatment, the fat cells begin to rupture and the melted fat is simply absorbed into the body.
Results gradually become apparent after a few weeks. Patients generally need 4-6 treatment sessions separated by about one month. Once you have achieved your desired results, the treatment does not need to be repeated in the future. So, don’t hesitate any longer to improve your chin profile with the slenderizing, contouring, and revitalizing effects of Kybella®!
