Get a shapelier and more defined jawline with the help of this simple cosmetic injectable.

While most people associate a double chin with being overweight, even those who are within their healthy target weight can still face this jkybellasame problem. Sometimes there is just excess fat in this area and sometimes genetics play a role. As we age we may also notice a double chin forming. Whatever the reason might be, Dr. Barbara Preussner at For a New You Medical Aesthetics & Laser in Holliston, MA understands how embarrassing this issue is for many men and women. This is why we are happy to offer Kybella treatment.

What is Kybella and how does it work?

Kybella is a prescription injection and an FDA-approved treatment for targeting submental fat, or fat under the chin. This injection contains a deoxycholic acid solution, which is a molecule found within the body that breaks down fat.

When Kybella is injected into the chin, the deoxycholic acid targets and destroys the fat that has accumulated in this area to improve the chin’s shape and overall appearance.

What should I expect from Kybella treatment?

Kybella treatment is tailored to you and your needs and during your consultation, Dr. Preussner will discuss how many treatment sessions you may need to achieve optimal results.

Treatments are performed at least one month apart and some patients may need up to six sessions. This procedure is minimally invasive and doesn’t require any anesthesia, cutting or stitches.

How long do results last?

Once Kybella has destroyed the excess fat the results are permanent. Once you have achieved the ideal results through Kybella you won’t need to come in for further treatments.

Who is an ideal candidate for Kybella?

If you are dealing with embarrassing submental fat and you want to get rid of it without resorting to surgery then you may be right for Kybella. It’s important that you sit down with Dr. Preussner to discuss the benefits and limitations of treatment so you know whether it’s right for you.
