Adults in Glen Ridge and beyond can develop submental fullness, also known as the “double chin.” The profile of the chin can affect confidence and self-esteem. They often ask nationally prominent dermatologist, Dr. Jeanine Downie, “Is there a way to minimize or eliminate a ‘double chin’?” Fortunately, an innovative removal treatment can help men and women improve their chin profile and boost self-esteem. Kybella can be ideal when exercise and dieting have not been effective for removing stubborn fat in the chin area. Dr. Downie and her team offer the treatment at image Dermatology® in Montclair.

An innovative solution

More than 20 clinical studies and 1,600 patients have been treated worldwide with Kybella, the only injectable approved by the FDA for treating submental fullness. According to clinical studies, patients noticed an improvement in self-perception after treatment.

Kybella is used to reduce moderate to severe fat deposits on the upper neck. The injectable is composed of deoxycholic acid, a naturally occurring molecule in the body. Kybella, which destroys fat cells, is injected into fat deposits beneath the chin. After treatment, patients can count on a reduction in submental fullness, improved chin contours, and a more attractive appearance.

We recommend scheduling a consultation to explore your candidacy for Kybella. During your visit, Dr. Downie will discuss your medical history, examine your face, and ask you about medications you are taking. If you are a candidate for treatment, she will tailor a plan to meet your needs. After your evaluation, Dr. Downie will determine the optimal location for injections. There will be several injections; however, she and her team can ensure the procedure is as comfortable as possible. Some patients may require two to three treatments before achieving optimal results. Treatment sessions should be scheduled a few weeks apart. In contrast to surgery, there is minimal downtime.

Attaining the appearance that you desire

Does submental fullness bother you and affect your self-esteem? Rest assured Kybella could provide emotional relief. In addition to restoring attractive contouring to your chin profile, we can combine Kybella and Botox treatments to achieve a full rejuvenating effect. After the treatments, you can embrace a more youthful look and newfound confidence.
