Can you treat your double chin?

By July 2, 2017Kybella, Skin, Treatment

Many people feel self-conscious about the appearance of a “double chin.” This can be caused by excess fatty tissue in the upper neck, creating a less defined profile. While a double chin has traditionally been corrected surgically, Juvia now offers an injectable solution with Kybella.

Kybella works by treating excess fat through injections to the affected area. It is FDA-approved for the reduction of the excess fat under the chin. The active ingredient is deoxycholic acid, which occurs naturally in the body. When injected, it breaks down the fat in the neck. As this breaks down, it is then removed via metabolic processes. As this occurs, results become more apparent in the form of a more desirable neck and chin contour.

Kybella is injected with a very fine needle, and a numbing agent is applied before the injections. The entire process takes less than 30 minutes. Most patients require a series of two to four sessions to reach their optimal results. To create your personal treatment plan and goals, you can schedule a consultation with one of the Juvia medical professionals.

Recovery involves minimal downtime, although you may experience slight swelling, bruising and temporary numbness. These will general fade after the first few days after your session.
