Frequently Asked Questions
WHAT CAUSES DOUBLE CHIN?
The extra fullness beneath the chin is called submental fullness, also referred to as “double chin.” Both men and women can be affected by submental fullness; caused by weight gain, genetics, and aging. Sometimes, no matter how much you exercise or diet, the condition may not go away.
HOW CAN I TREAT SUBMENTAL FULLNESS?
If you’re interested in a nonsurgical way to reduce double chin, KYBELLA® may be the best treatment option for you. KYBELLA® is an injectable treatment for adults with submental fullness that destroys fat cells under the chin to improve your profile.
HOW IS THE DOUBLE-CHIN REDUCTION PROCEDURE?
At StudioMD in White Plains, one of our specialist doctors will inject Kybella into precise areas of the neck with fatty deposits reducing the heavy appearance through a few simple injections. Kybella injection has the potential to transform the contour of the jowls and the neck by dissolving the unwanted fat in these areas. Kybella injections have the potential to replace invasive procedures or surgery as a procedure for many patients with submental fullness, heavy necks, jowls or double chin.*
HOW MANY SESSIONS OF KYBELLA® WILL I NEED TO REDUCE MY DOUBLE-CHIN?
Before starting treatment, your StudioMD specialist doctor will examine the area under and around your chin to determine if KYBELLA® is right for you and tailor your treatment according to the amount of fat under the chin and your aesthetic goals.
HOW LONG DOES KYBELLA LAST IN THE CHIN?
When injected into the fat under the chin, KYBELLA® destroys fat cells. Once destroyed, those cells cannot store or accumulate fat. After reaching your desired aesthetic, further treatment is not expected.
DOES KYBELLA LEAVE LOOSE SKIN?
Kybella® will not leave loose skin. However, the treatment will not tighten skin either. Kybella® effectively melts away excess under-chin fat. If you have very poor skin elasticity you may require a simultaneous skin tightening treatment.
