Submental fullness is a kinder name for the dreaded double chin. There are several reasons double chins happen, and they’re not necessarily related to your weight.
Aging, posture, and genetics all play a role. It affects both men and women. Unfortunately, diet and exercise don’t always cut it. But now we are proud to say we have a treatment to help- Kybella.
Kybella is a fat-melter made out of a deoxycholic acid, a substance similar to what your body uses to break down the fat you eat. It’s the first and only FDA approved injectable (nonsurgical) treatment for submental fullness.
Off label, we also use it for other localized fat pockets on the body like bra fat, small belly bulges, and kangaroo pouches. It’s given as a series of injections. The number of treatment sessions you’ll need varies by person.
In a recent survey performed by the ASDS (American Society for Dermatologic Surgery), approximately 67% of patients said they were bothered by their submental fullness or double chin. We are happy here at Waverly DermSpa to provide this minimally invasive solution!
If you are interested in Kybella or other cosmetic procedures, please call 954-666-3736 to schedule a cosmetic consultation with Dr. Maryann Mikhail.
