In a recent survey in the United States that asked both men and women how satisfied they were with the appearance of their chins, more than half of them answered they were self-conscious about the “double chin” appearance in the lower half of their faces. At Rejuvenate Med Spa, we now offer Kybella™ for the non-surgical reduction of fat in the lower face.
Rejuvenate Med Spa is located in Oak Brook, Illinois. Contact us today to schedule a consultation with our medical team and find out if you are a candidate for Kybella™ treatment.
What is Kybella™?
Over time, excess fat can accumulate in the chin due to several factors such as:
- Weight gain
As this area is difficult to target with diet and exercise, men and women often have to turn to surgery to improve their facial contours. With Kybella™, your lower face can be improved with a simple treatment and no downtime.
Kybella™ is comprised of deoxycholic acid, which is found naturally in the body and aids in the breakdown and absorption of fat. Once injected into the fatty tissue under the chin, deoxycholic acid permanently disables fat cells so they are no longer able to accumulate or store fat.
Am I a Good Candidate for Kybella™?
For men and women who have moderate to severe submental fat and who either do not want or do not qualify for surgery, Kybella™ may be a possible solution. During your consultation with our medical team, factors such as your health, medical history, cosmetic goals and expectations will be evaluated to determine if Kybella™ is the best course of treatment for your submental fat.
While Kybella™ is a safe, effective treatment for restoring natural contours underneath the chin, it is not a substitute for diet and exercise, nor is it a weight loss solution. Patients who receive Kybella™ treatment should be willing to adopt a lifestyle of healthy diet and exercise in order to maintain results.
Is Kybella™ Safe?
Deoxycholic acid is easily recognized and processed by the body, significantly reducing the risk of adverse effects. Kybella™ has been clinically tested and has a proven safety profile, with the most common side effects being slight bruising, swelling, redness or hardness around injection sites.
During your consultation, our medical team will let you know of other possible side effects that may apply to you. Contact Rejuvenate Med Spa today to schedule a consultation with our medical team and find out how Kybella™ can restore tighter, more youthful contours to your chin area.
