DOUBLE CHIN TREATMENT
Trinity Vista Dermatology, located in Fort Worth, Texas, is pleased to offer Kybella®, a non-invasive and permanent solution for the so-called “double chin.” The presence of localized excess fat below the chin can occur because of genetics, facial and jaw shape, or overall weight gain.
Kybella® is a solution made up of deoxycholic acid and is used to break apart the fat cells in that localized area and permanently destroy them. Patients may need, on average, 2-4 treatments to achieve desired results. The ideal candidate for Kybella® has localized fat deposits and does not have excess loose skin. In such cases of excess loose skin, surgical treatment may be recommended as an alternative.
What can I expect during and after treatment?
On the day of treatment, tiny injections of Kybella® are made into the area of fat under the chin. A few minutes later, there is a cramping feeling while the fat cells break apart. This discomfort only lasts a few minutes. After the treatment, the area of treatment feels swollen and slightly tender. Most of the swelling resolves in 2-4 weeks.
