Tried every gym class and the ‘double chin’ still won’t go away? Let us introduce you to KYBELLA®.
Our office is now offering KYBELLA®, the first and only FDA-approved injectable treatment to improve the appearance of moderate to severe fat beneath the chin by physically destroying fat cells in the treatment area. When injected into the fat beneath your chin, KYBELLA® destroys fat cells. Once destroyed, those cells can no longer store the accumulate fat.
Submental fullness can impact men and women, and can be influenced by several factors such as genetics, weight gain and aging, and can be resistant to diet and exercise.
Did you know that according to a 2015 survey conducted by the American Society for Dermatologic Surgery, nearly as much aesthetically-oriented consumers are bothered by their double chin (67%) as by lines and wrinkles around the eyes (69%)? In fact, the condition even has a name – submental fullness, or fat under the chin. It can make you look older and heavier, and it can be difficult to get rid of on your own. Because submental fullness can be influenced by multiple factors – such as genetics, weight gain and aging – sometimes no matter how much you diet or exercise, your double chin may not go away.
Schedule a complimentary consultation at (925) 838-4363 to determine if KYBELLA® might be right for you, or if you want to learn more about KYBELLA®.
