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 around 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.
