What you should Know About Double Chin Removal Treatment

Whether we like it or not, people tend to judge others by their appearance. That is why so many people in and around San Diego feel self-conscious about their double chin. Thankfully, Board-Certified Dermatologist Dr. Amanda Lloyd offers an incredible treatment using a product called Kybella, which is FDA-approved.

Causes of Double Chin

Double chin (also called turkey neck) is clinically known as submental fullness. Double chin takes place when subcutaneous fat in the upper neck and face sags. That causes the skin to blur and wrinkle at the angle where your chin meets your neck. This unfortunate condition often adds years to a person's appearance and can be linked to aging. It also makes one appear to be a heavier weight than reality. Causes of the double chin include family genetics, aging, sun damage, and increased body weight.

Treating Double Chin with Kybella

If you've researched "Kybella injections near me," then there's a good chance you've heard about the restorative effects of this unique product. While any doctor would recommend positive lifestyle changes such as a healthy diet and exercise, these changes alone may not be enough. In such cases, Dr. Amanda Lloyd may recommend Kybella, which is an FDA-approved non-surgical treatment. Kybella consists of deoxycholic acid, a natural substance found in the human body to dissolve fat. It is injected into precise points just underneath your chin and dissolves the double chin away!

Quick Kybella facts

  • Average treatment involves 10 to 20 injections using a local anesthetic.
  • Most folks see the results they desire after two treatments.
  • Treatments often take 30 minutes or less.
  • Very short post-injection downtime. Most patients recover fully after 24 to 48 hours.
  • Possible side effects may include minor bruising, swelling, and firmness at the injection site.
  • Injection treatments are typically spaced two months apart.
  • Results can last a long time as the body does not regenerate fat cells.
