Does your double chin make you feel as though your appearance is subpar? If so, you may benefit from the dermatological treatmentKybella Kybella. This procedure can shrink your double chin, making you feel as great as you look. Learn more about Kybella and what it can do for you and your appearance with Dr. Barbara Preussner at For A New You Medical Spa in Holliston, MA.

How does Kybella work? 
Kybella uses man-made deoxycholic acid, found naturally in the body, to destroy the fat cells underneath the chin. Since the cells are destroyed completely, they can no longer store fat, meaning that ongoing touch-up treatments are unnecessary. Most patients need 6 Kybella sessions spaced about a month apart to achieve their desired goal.

Am I a good candidate for Kybella? 
A good candidate for Kybella is in good health and is not pregnant or nursing. You should tell your doctor if you have had other procedures or surgeries, cosmetic or not, on your face, neck or chin. You should also alert your doctor if you have trouble swallowing, medical conditions affecting the chin or neck areas, or have bleeding or clotting problems.

Then, Dr. Preussner injects Kybella into the skin underneath the chin. Your doctor administers the multiple injections using super-thin needles to minimize discomfort. The process takes about 20 minutes total.

Do you like what you see when you look in the mirror? A double chin can linger long after you've lost weight, but that doesn't mean youkybella have to live with a layer of fat under your chin. Dr. Barbara Preussner explains how Kybella, an innovative new treatment, can help you get rid of your double chin.

How does Kybella work?

Kybella injections destroy the membranes of your fat cells. Once the membranes break apart, the contents of the cells spill out and are absorbed by your body. The cells are gone forever and so is the fat after you receive your Kybella treatment. No harmful chemicals are used in Kybella injections. The active ingredient is deoxycholic acid, a natural body acid that helps break down and absorb fat.

Does Kybella really work?

Seventy-five percent of people who receive Kybella injections are extremely satisfied with the results of their treatments. In the past, liposuction was one of the few options to remove fat under the chin. Although liposuction is effective, it is an invasive procedure and can cause infections, numbness, scarring and even dangerous fat embolisms. Since your skin is only pierced with a small needle during Kybella treatments, you won't have to worry about any of these problems. The U.S. Food and Drug Administration has approved Kybella as a safe alternative to traditional fat removal treatments.

What is the Kybella treatment process in Holliston like?

Before treatment begins, your doctor draws a grid of dots under your chin. The grids help guide her when she gives you the injections. Although you might notice some slight stinging during treatment, Kybella injections aren't usually painful. You'll need two to six treatments to experience the full benefits of Kybella.

After your injections, your skin may be red and swollen and some minor bruising can occur. In a few days, you won't even be able to tell that you received injections, and as your body begins to absorb the fat, you'll notice a more chiseled jaw line.
