Kybella® in Indian Wells​

Beauty is all about symmetry. However, symmetry in nature is often difficult to find. When it comes to changes in appearance as a result of age, achieving and maintaining a symmetrical appearance can be even more difficult. Skin laxity in particular can cause skin to sag unattractively, causing many men and women to feel insecure whenever they look into the mirror. The development of a “double chin” can be especially detrimental to self-esteem.

Desert Med Aesthetics offers some of the latest non-surgical solutions to help patients restore symmetry to their appearance. With Kybella® double chin removal treatment, our Indian Wells cosmetic specialist is able to eliminate sagging skin and restore a slim neck silhouette.

Double Chins (Submental Fullness)

Commonly known as a “double chin,” submental fullness is a cosmetic concern that frequently affects both men and women. While the condition may not be medically concerning, the development of a double chin can leave a lasting impact on your overall appearance. According to a survey conducted by the American Society for Dermatologic Surgery, around 67% of people admitted to being bothered by having double chin.

By adding extra skin below the chin, submental fullness detracts from balanced facial proportions, leaving individuals with features that make them look older or heavier than they are. Another dilemma is that in most cases, neither diet nor exercise can effectively shrink submental fat. Even with a rigorous workout regimen, individuals can lose weight yet still retain submental fullness. However, there are certain factors such as genetics, aging and weight gain that can contribute to the development of a double chin.

Double Chin Removal Treatment

Until recently, advanced cosmetic surgery like a neck lift and liposuction were the only cosmetic options available for a double chin. While these are effective solutions, the risks inherent with surgery as well as the long-term recovery were barriers that kept many male and female patients from pursuing double chin removal.

For patients who are looking for a non-surgical way of removing submental fullness, Kybella® presents a revolutionary and effective alternative. Kybella® is the first ever FDA-approved completely nonsurgical option that contours and dramatically improves the appearance of submental fullness.

Kybella® is specifically designed to target the neck and chin of every patient. This treatment uses deoxycholic acid, a naturally-occurring molecule that aids in the breakdown and absorption of dietary fat in the body. When delivered to the target area, this main ingredient begins destroying excess fat and smooths the skin below the chin.

What to Expect During Your Kybella® Treatment

Dr. Doriana Cosgrove of Desert Med Aesthetics is professionally certified to perform Kybella® and has provided countless male and female patients with this innovative solution. Starting with your complimentary consultation, our Indian Wells cosmetic specialist will work closely with you to design a customized treatment plan that will improve the silhouette of your neck and chin. Depending on the skin laxity in the area and submental fat condition, your double chin removal may include several Kybella® treatments over the course of a few months. These additional treatment sessions are typically set with one-month intervals between them.

During the session, the injectable is delivered to the subcutaneous fat below the chin. Once placed, the active deoxycholic acid begins to break down fatty tissue. When the fat creating the double chin has been emulsified, it can no longer store additional fatty tissue. With nowhere to go, the dissolved fat is then metabolized by immune cells and passes naturally as waste.

Kybella® treatment sessions are relatively fast, lasting about 15 to 20 minutes. During the weeks that follow your double chin removal session, you’ll soon notice an improvement in the presence of fatty tissue as well as skin laxity. In addition to eliminating a double chin, Kybella® may also provide a subtle tightening effect of the neck tissue.
