Get rid of excess skin and achieve a more defined jawline with this simple procedure.

As we get older our skin begins to lose its elasticity, resulting in sagging, loose skin kybellaaround the jawline. This can be enough to make anyone feel a little self-conscious about their appearance. If this is something you are currently dealing with, our Morristown, Bridgewater, and Mt. Arlington, NJ, dermatologists have a simple nonsurgical option that could reshape and contour the face and get rid of that double chin.

What is Kybella?

Kybella is a safe and effective way to reduce the appearance of excess fat around the chin (also known as a double chin) without having to undergo surgery. In fact, it is the only FDA-approved injectable that can be used in adults to specifically treat double chin.

How does it work?

The main and active ingredient found in Kybella is a synthetic form of deoxycholic acid, which is a molecule that breaks down fat. So, when our skin doctor administers these injections into the chin, the active ingredient gets to work breaking down and reabsorbing these fat cells.

When do results appear?

When you come in for your consultation, we will determine how many treatment sessions you will require based on how much excess fat is around the chin. This is a great option for those dealing moderate-to-severe fat in the chin area. During each treatment session, we will administer very small injections into the face. Patients may receive anywhere from 2-6 treatments, each performed about 1 month apart.

How long will results last?

Since Kybella actually destroys the fat cells these cells will not return and won’t be able to store fat. This means that these results are permanent and you won’t usually require any additional treatment.

Here at Affiliated Dermatologists, we believe that confidence is more than skin deep. If you want to improve the appearance of your skin our dermatologists offer locations in Morristown, Bridgewater, and Mt. Arlington, NJ, to serve you better. Call us today to find out how Kybella can help you.

If you are looking to get a defined chin line, find out about our wonderful cosmetic options.

One of the least pleasant parts of getting older is how much our skin begins to change. kybellaSince collagen and elastin are not being produced in such large quantities as when we were younger, our skin starts to sag, droop and wrinkle as we get older. As a result, you may notice that you’ve developed a less defined chin. Luckily, our dermatologists at Affiliated Dermatologists & Dermatologic Surgeons are here to help improve the shape of your chin with these two popular treatments. They have several convenient office locations in Mt. Arlington, Morristown, Liberty Corner, and Bridgewater, New Jersey.

Infini

This radio-frequency treatment uses microneedles, which are designed to heat up the deeper layers of the skin to boost collagen production. As a result of this increase in collagen, we can naturally firm and tighten up the skin around the chin (as well as other areas of the face). Treatment only takes about 15-30 minutes to complete. When you come in for a consultation, our Morristown skin doctors will be able to determine how many treatment sessions you will need to get the results you want.

It can take several weeks before you start to see results from your Infini treatments. This is because it also takes time for your skin to produce collagen. You will continue to see your skin improve over the course of several months with results lasting many years.

Kybella

Kybella is an FDA-approved injection that will heat up and destroy fat cells within the chin. Kybella is a great option for those who continue to maintain a double chin despite eating healthfully and exercising regularly. Reducing fat around the chin can be difficult even with major changes to your daily habits. Kybella can help.

Kybella can be a great non-surgical treatment option for those who want to remove fat around the chin but who don’t want to go through liposuction or other invasive cosmetic dermatology. Kybella could easily give you the results that you want without general anesthesia.

Affiliated Dermatologists & Dermatologic Surgeons in Mt. Arlington, Morristown, Liberty Corner, and Bridgewater, New Jersey, is dedicated to giving you the younger skin you want. You’ll find that you will have more confidence. People won’t believe how great you look for your age. Call us to find out more about how we can give you that beautiful jaw-line you want.
