Non-Surgical Double Chin Treatment.
Having a sculpted chin is an important aesthetic goal for many of our patients. Kybella is an FDA approved, non-surgical technique for helping dissolve fat in the chin area through a series of injections. It’s a safe and effective treatment with great results. Dr. Saltzburg can help you decide whether this treatment is a good option for you.
Neck fat under your chin may be preventing you from feeling confident about the way you look, and the cosmetic treatment known as Kybella is often effective in reversing this problem.
No matter if you call this submental fullness a double chin or turkey neck, you can have it eliminated here at our medical spa in Lindwood without surgery
KYBELLA® is a prescription medicine used in adults to improve the appearance and profile of moderate to severe fat below the chin (submental fat), also called “double chin.”
It is not known if KYBELLA® is safe and effective for the treatment of fat outside of the submental area or in children under 18 years of age.
- Treatment time is fast
- Recovery downtime is minimal
- No scarring is left behind
The active ingredient in KYBELLA® is synthetic deoxycholic acid. Deoxycholic acid is a naturally occurring molecule in the body that aids in the breakdown and absorption of dietary fat. When injected into the fat beneath the chin, KYBELLA® destroys fat cells, resulting in a noticeable reduction in fullness under the chin. Once destroyed, these cells can no longer store or accumulate fat, so further treatment is not expected once you reach your desired aesthetic goal.
Submental fullness is a gathering of excess fat beneath the chin, commonly known as “double chin.” It can be something you’ve had your whole life due to genetics, or start to appear as you get older or if you gain weight.
When you choose BOTOX® Cosmetic, you can trust in its established track record. Backed by over 16 years of published studies, BOTOX® Cosmetic is the most widely researched and studied treatment of its kind, approved for use in 95 countries. The safety and efficacy of BOTOX® Cosmetic have been described in more than 528 peer-reviewed articles in scientific and medical journals
KYBELLA® can cause serious side effects, including injection site problems such as bruising, hair loss, open sores (ulcers), and damage and tissue cell-death (necrosis) around the injection site or trouble swallowing and nerve injury in the jaw that can temporarily cause an uneven smile or facial muscle weakness.
The most common side effects are swelling, bruising, pain, numbness, redness and areas of hardness around the treatment area. These are not all of the possible side effects of KYBELLA®.
When injected into fat under the chin, KYBELLA® causes the destruction of fat cells. Once destroyed, those cells cannot store or accumulate fat. After reaching your desired aesthetic, further treatment is not expected.
I have had several treatments at Luminary and Brette is absolutely amazing! Her professionalism, attention to detail, and expertise is top notch!!!
I went to another medspa before this one and they were quick to get me in the door but when it came to check up time they never were accommodating to my schedule. My niece told me about this place and I’m so glad I went to get injected. Brette was AMAZING!! She made me feel so comfortable right from the start, putting on my music in the room to calm my nerves and talking me through every step. The 3D photos they do there are incredible. They can tell you everything you need to know about your skin and more. They don’t just do what you want them to do,which is great- they look over everything, talk to you about your concerns and suggest what should be done and why. Brette was very professional and a natural at her job. It’s so easy to upload your photos directly on the app and she looked at before and after pics to go over my healing process with me. It was an incredible experience and I would recommend anyone interested in the treatments they offer to run and go see them. You will love your results!
