Kybella Double Chin Treatment| NYC

Kybella is a non-surgical method of addressing excess fat below the chin (“submental fat”). Kybella injections “melt” fat to improve the contour of the jawline. Kybella can offers patient long-lasting double chin reduction without downtime.

Kybella’s active ingredient is similar to deoxycholic acid, a substance the body naturally produces that helps the body absorb fat. Using a fine needle, Kybella iis injected into the fatty area below the chin, where fat cells are targeted and permanently destroyed. Over the course of about a month, the dead fat cells will be removed via the body’s own elimination process. The results will begin to show a few weeks after the injection.

Treatments are quick and can be performed in under 30 minutes. Up to 30 injections can be given during a single treatment. This is done under local anesthesia, making the injection process virtually painless. The number of treatments depends on each patient’s unique needs. On average, two to six sessions are recommended for optimal results.

Kybella treatments are considered safe and effective, but may not be appropriate for everybody. Kybella may not be the best solution for those with expansive amounts of fat. In addition, the treatment will not address loose skin or improve muscle tone. Our Manhattan dermatologists offer several other treatments that can address a double chin, including Ultherapy skin tightening, BeautiFill Lipo, and others. Our experts will help you select the double chin and jawline treatment that is right for you!
