In the past, the only option for reducing a double chin was liposuction and more extensive surgery. But now there’s an alternative for men and women in the Columbus and Upper Arlington area. Downtown Dermatology offers Kybella®, an injectable product that is clinically proven to reduce double chins without surgery!
Kybella® is an innovative injectable product that gives men and women an alternative to surgery for their double chins. The injections contain deoxycholic acid that is found in the human body. The acid is responsible for aiding with the digestion of fat in the foods you eat. When Kybella® is injected into the area under the chin and jowls, the acid goes to work and naturally dissolves the fat cells.
If you want to eliminate your double chin, we recommend that you consider Kybella® treatments for the following benefits:
The FDA has approved Kybella® for treating double chins caused by excess fat under the chin and jowls.
As an injectable product, Kybella® is administered via a very small needle. Several injections are needed to reduce the double chin and preserve the natural contours of the jowl line and upper neck area. The procedure is quick and easy, and most of our patients easily tolerate the injections. If you experience any discomfort during the treatment, we will administer a topical numbing agent.
In order to achieve the best possible results from your Kybella® treatments, you should meet with board-certified dermatologist Dr. Hicks-Graham. She will explain the anticipated outcomes of treatment. You should note that Kybella® will not help with wrinkles that are caused by sagging and loose skin in the jowl and neck area.
A Kybella® treatment takes about 20 to 30 minutes, but you should plan to spend an hour at our facility to allow for the preparation and brief recovery period. Multiple treatments are needed to permanently remove the fat. You should plan for two to six treatments at four-week intervals. In between the treatments, you will see a gradual reduction in fat. After each treatment, you may experience minor swelling, tenderness and bruising for the first 24 to 48 hours.
Kybella® treatments are considered elective by your medical insurance. As such, you are responsible for the cost. Payment can be made by cash, check, major credit card or CareCredit® financing.
If you want to permanently eliminate your double chin without surgery, Kybella® treatments might be right for you. Board-certified dermatologist Dr. Hicks-Graham will explain the benefits of Kybella® during your consultation.
