What to Do About a Bothersome Double Chin

What to Do About a Bothersome Double Chin

You might have a double chin for several reasons, from genetics to aging. Unfortunately, you can’t control where your body stores fat cells. Fortunately, though, you’re not powerless here. 

If your body stores fat in a visible location, like right under your chin, talk to Dr. Peymon Zarreii about Kybella®. With this injection-based treatment, he can target fat cells in problem areas. Dr. Zarreii at Zarreii Medical and Aesthetics in Delray Beach, Florida, uses Kybella to address fat in the belly, upper arms, and more. That said, one of the most popular options is under the chin. 

Meet your targeted solution

Kybella is an injection that consists of deoxycholic acid. Your body naturally makes this bile acid to help you break down fat. But you can’t control where your naturally occurring deoxycholic acid goes. 

With Kybella, you apply this fat-destroying acid right where you want it. Talk with Dr. Zarreii about what bothers you about your double chin. Then, he can personalize a treatment plan — from the number of treatments to the location of the injections — to help you move toward your cosmetic goals. 

Once Dr. Zarreii injects the Kybella, it destroys fat cells in the area. This process usually takes about six weeks. The results are permanent, provided you don’t gain significant weight, which would allow your body to replace those fat cells. 

What to expect with Kybella

After you and Dr. Zarreii discuss your cosmetic goals and he recommends a treatment plan, the process to get Kybella usually only takes about 20 minutes. 

Some people get just one Kybella treatment. Others opt for a series of appointments to get the most dramatic results possible. If you schedule more than one Kybella appointment, we space successive visits 4–6 weeks apart to allow the deoxycholic acid to go to work between each. 

There’s no downtime with Kybella. You likely experience some swelling and bruising, but many people return to work or another activity right after their appointment. Plus, any noticeable bruising or swelling should fade in a few days. If you schedule your Kybella appointment late in the week, you can take it easy during the weekend to let those side effects fade. 

If you’re bothered by your double chin, this option might be the perfect solution. To learn more about Kybella and find out if it can help you reach your aesthetic goals, schedule an appointment by calling our office or booking your visit online today.
