Chin Fat Kybella vs. CoolSculpting Washington DC

Submental fullness, most often referred to as a double-chin, is a problem that has notoriously been difficult to eliminate. The under-treatment of submental fullness, or chin fat, is unfortunate because this complaint is secondary only to fine lines and wrinkles. A double-chin can increase the appearance of age and give the impression of excess weight overall, when this may not be the case. Often, the chin fat, or “waddle,” is genetic. Many athletic and physically fit men and women suffer from submental fullness. For patients of Visage Dermatology and Aesthetic Center, a solution for submental fullness awaits!

Introducing Kybella

One of the most significant developments in aesthetic medicine in recent years has been the introduction of Kybella. This injectable solution is formulated to dissolve fat beneath the chin. It works with the body’s natural tendency to break down fat by introducing a precise dosage of deoxycholic acid (a fat melting substance naturally found in your body) into the submental area. As fat cells absorb the solution, they gradually dissolve. In time, the body eliminates these cells, leaving you with a smaller, more defined jaw line and chin.

Important clinical statistics

When considering any aesthetic procedure, it is necessary to feel confident in techniques and ingredients of injectable solutions. Kybella trials were conducted with over 1,000 adults with moderate to severe concerns related to submental fullness. In the Kybella group, 82 percent of patients reported improvement in appearance after 12 weeks.

In the relatively short time that Kybella has been used by trained physicians, patients have continually reviewed the treatment favorably for the convenience, comfort, and dramatic results achieved.

If you have read the reviews, you have an idea what Kybella can do for you. To get rid of your chin fat, schedule a consultation with Dr. St. Surin-Lord. Dr. St. Surin-Lord is trained and certified by Allergan, the manufacturer of Kybella, to perform these quick injections.

Kybella: what to expect

Prior to Kybella treatment, a thorough consultation and examination is performed, including medical history. This enables us to ensure your safety and the desired outcome. During this consultation, we will discuss the possibility of side effects, which could include:

  • Mild swelling or bruising
  • Temporary redness
  • A feeling of hardness in the treated tissues
  • Slight discomfort

Kybella is a wonderful alternative to liposuction for the elimination of excess fat under the chin. Unlike liposuction, after undergoing Kybella treatment there is no need to wear a chin strap. A series of treatments is recommended for optimal results.
