Dr. Schlessinger + Kybella Can Get Rid of That Double Chin!

Somehow it seems like no matter how much weight you lose and how much you strive to have a healthy lifestyle, there is always some stubborn fat that still remains on the body. This can be even more annoying when the fat results in a double chin, and you just can’t seem to get rid of it. If you are tired of your double chin and have unsuccessfully tried to get rid of it yourself, Kybella can help! 

What is Kybella?

Kybella is a non-invasive procedure that destroys the fat cells in and around the neck. Unlike liposuction, which involves anesthesia, incisions, and suctioning of fat, Kybella involves a simple injection, made up of deoxycholic acid. This type of acid is a natural part of the human body. It targets fat cells and destroys them, and they are naturally flushed out of the body within a few weeks. 

What are the advantages of Kybella?

Kybella has many advantages. Because there is no surgery involved, there is no preparation necessary for the patient. It is quick – it takes less than half an hour for a session, although most patients do need more than one session. Time needed for recovery after the procedure is minimal, and most patients report that any side effects (such as swelling, soreness, and redness) are gone within 2 weeks. 

Kybella is also safe, and it has been approved by the FDA. And, it is effective – in one trial, 80% of patients said that they saw significant improvement in their chin area after this treatment. It is permanent, as the procedure destroys fat cells completely. It can also be performed on most people, unless you have a double chin because of loose skin instead of accumulated fat. If you are planning on having facial surgery or are pregnant or nursing, you also may not be a good candidate for Kybella. 

As you can see, Kybella has many benefits – but perhaps the biggest one is how you will look and feel after that double chin is gone! Call Schlessinger Eye and Face in Woodbury, New York for a Kybella consultation at (516) 496-2122
