If you struggle with the appearance of a double chin, there is a solution.
The FDA-approved Kybella injections can help improve the appearance of moderate to severe fat beneath the chin by physically destroying fat cells in the treatment area.
Clients who are getting this injectable treatment done have seen noticeable improvements.
“Everyone has noticed a significant tightening and lifting of the neck and they still have one more treatment to do at the beginning of May,” said Kathe Malinowski, lead esthetician and marketing manager for Eterna MedSpa & Laser Vein Center.
Who is the best candidate for the non-surgical cosmetic procedure?
“Anyone who has a little fat pocket just under the jawline and down the neck, which gives the double chin look,” Malinowski said.
According to a 2015 survey conducted by the American Society for Dermatologic Surgery, nearly as many aesthetically-oriented consumers are bothered by their double chin (67 percent) as by lines and wrinkles around the eyes (69 percent).
Fat under the chin can make people look older and heavier. It can also be difficult to get rid of without help.
Kybella treatments are done in two sessions, scheduled 8 weeks apart. Clients will notice swelling in the area that can last from three to five days.
But don’t worry.
“As the swelling goes down tightening starts to happen,” Malinowski said.
Another perk? Once the fat cells are destroyed, those cells can no longer store or accumulate fat.
