A Cosmetic Injectable to Improve the Appearance of a Double Chin
Our office is now offering a treatment for your double chin! Recently approved by the FDA, KYBELLA™ (deoxycholic acid) injection contours and improves the appearance of moderate to severe submental fullness, sometimes referred to as “double chin.”
Submental fullness can impact a broad range of adults, including both men and women. It can be influenced by several factors such as aging, genetics and weight gain, and is often resistant to diet and exercise alone. According to a survey by the American Society for Dermatologic Surgery, nearly as many consumers are bothered by submental fullness (68 percent) as by lines and wrinkles around the eyes (71 percent).
When injected into subcutaneous fat, KYBELLA™ causes the destruction of fat cells. Once destroyed, those cells cannot store or accumulate fat.
The most common side effects are swelling, bruising, pain, numbness, redness and formation of small areas of firmness around the treatment area.
Talk to Dr. Maguire to determine if KYBELLA™ might be right for you.
