Beauty is all about symmetry but a lot of people feel insecure whenever they look into the mirror and see a “double chin” – excess fat hanging under the chin. According to a survey conducted by the American Society for Dermatologic Surgery in 2015, around 67% of people admitted to be bothered by having double chin. Submental fullness or fat is commonly known as “double chin” which is an all too common flaw apparent to both men and women, but is most often left untreated.
This detracts from having a balanced facial appearance and features which make you look older than your actual age. The dilemma is that neither diet nor exercise can effectively shrink the submental fat. You can lose weight yet still retain submental fullness, which is a common complaint for a lot of people who have this aesthetic condition. Submental fullness is said to be influenced by certain factors such as genetics, aging and weight gain.
KYBELLA – The Newest Double Chin Treatment
A neck lift and liposuction were the only surgical options previously available for those who have double chin; which is specifically designed to improve the chin and neck’s contour. Now, a revolutionary nonsurgical treatment is now out – KYBELLA treatment is the first ever FDA-approved nonsurgical treatment option available at Desert Med Aesthetics that contours and dramatically improves the appearance of submental fullness or double chin.
Treatment using KYBELLA can be easily customized to fit the patient’s neck and chin. The active ingredient in KYBELLA is deoxycholic acid, a naturally-occurring molecule that aids in the breakdown and absorption of dietary fat in the body.
The Kybella Process
The treatment is administered by injecting KYBELLA into the subcutaneous fat under the chin. The introduction of KYBELLA for double chin aids in the destruction of submental fat cells. Once the double chin is emulsified, it prevents the storage or accumulation of further fatty deposits. Treatment sessions of KYBELLA are relatively fast and would usually last about 15 to 20 minutes. Improvement of submental fullness with this treatment may be noticeable after two to six treatments. In addition to eradicating submental fullness, KYBELLA treatment can also help tighten the skin and do a natural neck and facelift. However, this is not recommended for pregnant patients and for those under 18 years of age.

Dr. Doriana Cosgrove of Desert Med Aesthetics is professionally certified to perform KYBELLA and will work closely with you to design a customized treatment plan that will improve the convexity of your neck and chin.

The results are amazingly fast as majority of patients experience visible KYBELLA results after just two to four visits at the center. Dr. Doriana may however recommend and schedule up to six more KYBELLA injection sessions to hasten its effectiveness.
