Premier Cosmetic Medical Center Serving Oklahoma City, Norman, Edmond & Nearby Areas of Oklahoma
A double chin can be among the most noticeable and unwelcome signs of aging. It may seem that no matter how much you exercise or diet, that stubborn submental fullness just won’t go away. Historically, the only way to get rid of excess submental fat was with a surgical procedure, such as a neck lift. Fortunately, you now have an easier option.
Kybella® is an FDA-approved injectable formula designed to eliminate the fat that causes a double chin.
To learn more about Kybella, contact Rejuvena Cosmetic Medical Center today online or at 405-842-1100 to schedule a free initial consultation with Joan Hardt, M.D. Our state-of-the-art facility in Oklahoma City welcomes patients from across the country and Oklahoma, including Norman, Edmond and more.
What Is Kybella®?
Kybella® is the first and only FDA-approved injectable treatment cleared for the elimination of submental fat cells that develop beneath the chin. Kybella contains a synthetic acid that mimics a type of acid that occurs naturally in your body called deoxycholic acid.
When Kybella’s synthetic form of deoxycholic acid is injected into the fat beneath the skin, the fat cells are permanently destroyed and will not re-form. This allows your skin to contract and create a more sculpted and attractive neck and jaw line.
Benefits of Kybella for Double Chin Treatment
If you are seeking a non-surgical way to remove excess fat from under your chin, Kybella may be your ideal solution. There are a number of benefits to choosing Kybella for your double chin treatment, including:
- No downtime or recovery period following treatment
- No anesthesia, incisions, sutures or scars
- Short treatment time, usually just 15 minutes
- Long-lasting, sustainable results
- Improved confidence
Is Kybella Right For Me?
Because Kybella uses a synthetic version of deoxycholic acid, which occurs naturally in the body to destroy fat cells, this treatment is safe for most people over the age of 18. However, like any procedure, there are conditions that can affect your candidacy for treatment. If you experience any of the following issues, be prepared to discuss them with Dr. Hardt during your initial consultation:
- You are breastfeeding
- You are pregnant or plan to be pregnant
- You are on any medications, especially blood thinners
- You have any bleeding problems
- You have ever had trouble swallowing
- You have any medical conditions around your neck or face
- You have had previous treatments on your neck or face
- You have had, or plan to have, face, chin or neck surgery
The only way to truly determine if Kybella is right for you is to meet personally with Dr. Hardt. During your free initial consultation, she will work to understand your goals, evaluate your condition, determine your candidacy and explain your options.
