Double chin removal: non-surgical treatment with Kybella in Montclair, New Jersey
Genetics, weight gain, and aging can all lead to a “double chin,” also called submental fullness, which can be difficult to eliminate with diet and exercise. This can not only affect the way you look from both the front and the side—making you look bigger than you really are—but also your self-confidence. Previously, the only double chin removal option was surgery, but now patients have an effective non-surgical option called Kybella®. We are proud to offer this treatment at image Dermatology® P.C. in Montclair, New Jersey, to help restore both your appearance and your confidence! Dr. Downie participated in the Kybella clinical trial and has in-depth knowledge and experience in helping patients achieve natural-looking, terrific results.
Kybella injections for double chin removal
Kybella is like liposuction in a needle! It is a very targeted therapy that is made from deoxycholic acid, which is a molecule that is naturally occurring in the intestines, where it works to emulsify fats for absorption by the body. Deoxycholic acid has been used in a variety of ways in medicine. When it is injected into the under-chin area, Kybella is very effective at destroying the fat cells in the area, and then they are flushed away through the body’s elimination pathways. The end result reduces submental fullness with beautiful chin contours and a slimmer, younger appearance. Kybella can also be used off-label in the inner thighs and other areas of the body.

Actual Patient Results
Additionally, because Kybella is minimally invasive and requires small injections, it carries much less risk than a surgical procedure. Patients enjoy freedom from scars, drains, or compression garments and minimal downtime. While patients may experience swelling and bruising at the injection site, recovery is typically rapid, and we take precautions to minimize your risk of side effects from the treatment. Multiple treatment sessions are needed for the best results. We will discuss the number of treatments needed, potential side effects, and how to manage them during your consultation, so you are well-informed.
