Double Chin Treatment Q & A

Who is a candidate for double chin treatment?

Men and women who are unhappy or self-conscious about excess fat under the chin are ideal candidates for either Kybella or SculpSure treatments.

The gathering of excess fat under your chin may be something you’ve had your entire life due to genetics, or it may develop as you grow older or gain weight. If you eat well and exercise but the fullness just won’t go away, New Skin Medical can help.

What is Kybella?

Kybella is an injectable prescription medication that contains deoxycholic acid, which naturally occurs in your body. The acid breaks down the fat cells under your chin and your body re-absorbs it. The destruction of fat cells is permanent.

Dr. Sherman injects the medication in multiple areas of fat under your chin. Treatments typically take 15-20 minutes. Following treatment, you can return to your regular activities without any recovery time.

How many treatments will I need?

The exact number of treatments depends on your particular goals and the extent of your chin fullness. Dr. Sherman creates a treatment plan in advance of your first session, so you know what to expect.

For Kybella, you receive multiple injections under the chin during each treatment session. You may receive as many as six treatment sessions total, but many people see the benefits after just two treatments. Dr. Sherman spaces sessions a month or more apart.

SculpSure treatments under the chin take 25 minutes and don’t involve any injections. Dr. Sherman recommends two sessions spaced six weeks apart. Both methods permanently destroy the fat cells, so no further treatments are necessary once you reach your goal.

Is there any downtime with these treatments?

No. You can immediately resume your daily activities. With Kybella injections, swelling in the treatment area may occur and last for about a week. You may also experience some numbness following treatment.

What are the benefits of Kybella?

Kybella offers effective results for reducing the appearance of a double chin without surgery. Other benefits Include:

  • No downtime
  • Increased self-confidence
  • Younger-looking profile
  • Long-lasting results
