A double chin is a name for the pocket of submental fat between your jaw and neck. Many factors contribute to a double chin. While your diet and weight can increase fat all over your body, including under your chin, you may also have a double chin even if you maintain a healthy body weight.
Your genetics and age can make you more likely to have a double chin. As you grow older, your skin loses its elasticity and can become loose and sag around your jaw.
A double chin reduction is a treatment to reduce the submental fat and excess skin under your jaw. At Luminous Vein Care and Aesthetics, Dr. Hindi and his team offer Kybella® treatments.
Kybella is an injectable serum made of deoxycholic acid that mimics the acid in your stomach that helps you digest fats in the food you eat. When Dr. Hindi or injects Kybella into your submental fat, the acid in the serum targets your fat cells, damaging their structural integrity.
Then your body processes the damaged cells and removes them with other waste products. Over the following weeks, your double chin will start to reduce.
Before beginning your double chin reduction treatment, Dr. Hindi performs a physical exam and consultation to determine if Kybella is right for you. Kybella is most effective if you’re in good health and close to your ideal body weight but struggling with a stubborn pocket of fat under your chin.
If Kybella is a good option for you, Dr. Hindi cleanses your chin and makes several injections of the Kybella serum in your submental area. The injections only take 15-20 minutes, and you don’t need to take any time off to recover after your treatments. You could even have double chin reduction treatments on your lunch break.
You may need a series of monthly treatments to achieve your desired results. Dr. Hindi provides advice during your initial consultation regarding the estimated number of appointments and what results you can expect.
