Many adults are bothered by extra fullness under their chin, or what is commonly referred to as a “double chin.” They feel this extra fat makes them look older and less active, even if they are in good physical health. In fact, many people who experience submental fullness are not overweight. Factors such as genetics and the natural aging process can also play a role.
At Dental Implant and Aesthetic Specialists of Atlanta, we want to help you feel confident in your smile, and to us, that means taking into consideration other areas of your face as well. This is why we are proud to offer KYBELLA® injections. KYBELLA (deoxycholic acid) is a prescription medication used to improve the appearance of submental fat. It is a nonsurgical injectable treatment that destroys fat cells to help improve your profile.
KYBELLA is made from deoxycholic acid, a naturally-occurring molecule in the body that helps break down and absorb dietary fat. In this context, it is used to destroy fat cells. Once destroyed, they cannot grow back, so retreatment is typically not needed.
During your visit, Dr. Brett Langston will determine how many injection sessions will be right for you, depending on your individual situation. The process is quick and comfortable. After you may experience some swelling or bruising, but no recovery time is needed. Results are typically visible within a few weeks.
