LOSE THE DOUBLE CHIN with KYBELLA® and ENHANCE THE JAWLINE and CHIN with dermal filler. 

Why A Double Chin Forms

A double chin refers to an area of fat cells located under the jawline. Double chins are often associated with weight gain, but many trim individuals have this issue. Genetics plays a role in the accumulation of fat in this area. Increased skin laxity and mandibular bone loss associated with aging can also contribute. The result — jowls, a double chin, and an aged appearance.

Until recently, surgery was the only effective option available. In 2015 the FDA approved Kybella® to treat moderate to severe submental fullness (double chin). Kybella is composed of deoxycholic acid, the body’s natural fat dissolving molecule. Deoxycholic acid destroys fat cells by disrupting their cell membrane. Typically a few Kybella treatments are needed to achieve adequate correction. However, after initial treatments, the results are durable, often lasting years.

How To Enhance The Chin And Jawline

The chin and jawline play a key role in overall facial shape, counter, and balance.  As we age, the jawline can lose definition. Sometimes, the chin is recessed, too narrow, or disproportionate to other facial features. Both jawline definition and chin enhancement can be treated effectively with dermal filler injections. The result — a crisper jawline and improved facial harmony.

FAQs

Does Kybella® hurt?

There is a mild to moderate amount of discomfort associated with the injection of Kybella that peaks after a few minutes and dissipates pretty quickly after. This discomfort is easily managed with icing pre and post-injection for a few minutes. We recommend taking two 500mg Tylenol capsules 45 minutes before your appointment to aid treatment tolerance. 

I hear there is swelling post-treatment for Kybella® ; what can I expect?

Injecting Kybella® causes the fat cells in the treatment area to breakdown, which results in inflammation and a moderate degree of swelling. The inflammation is desirable as it results in new collagen formation helping the skin tighten over time. The swelling typically peaks at 5-7 days and subsides fairly quickly thereafter.

How many vials of filler do I need for my chin and jawline?

One to two vials of filler are typically adequate to treat the chin and jawline.
