Non-surgical Double Chin Reduction in the Philadelphia Area
Double chins are caused by excess fat that accumulates under the chin. This excess fat is a common concern and can cause a great deal of frustration and distress. The problem is common for both men and women of all ages—even after weight loss. Until recently, the only treatment for those looking to achieve a sharper and more chiseled chin was surgery with anesthesia or invasive neck liposuction. Kybella® at the Philadelphia area's Cross Medical Group is the first injectable substance that is FDA approved to address submental fat. It reduces the double chin issue using nothing but an office appointment to achieve the correction.
The active ingredient is a fat-dissolving substance that is found naturally in the body. When injected, it breaks down fat cells and can leave the jaw more contoured. For best results, patients typically need anywhere from two to four treatments, each four to six weeks apart. The procedure takes about 20 minutes per session. Results from Kybella® are noticeable at four to six weeks and will last for years. Side effects are minimal and will begin to resolve within three to five days after treatment.
Kybella® offers a safe and effective way to combat chin fat and helps to improve the definition and contour of the jaw area.
