Kybella™ – Eliminate Your Double Chin With Injections

Kybella™ in San Antonio and Boerne, TXDo you live with a “double chin”? Have you done everything you can think of to eliminate the fat beneath your chin, but to no avail? You might want to consider Kybella™.

Kybella™ is a non-surgical fat reduction procedure that gets rid of stubborn under-chin fat. It’s a treatment that helps people with moderate to severe submental fullness, which is the medical term for the hard-to-remove, fatty double chin.

Submental fullness is an aesthetic condition that plagues a reported 60% of adults. It’s brought on by aging, genetics, and weight gain, among other causes.

If you suffer from low self-confidence, discomfort, or health conditions because of submental fullness, read on to see if you should get Kybella™ treatments in my Boerne, TX office.

What is Kybella™?

Kybella™ is the first and only FDA-approved non-surgical treatment for submental fullness. It’s a procedure that improves and contours skin under the chin, leaving a healthier appearance and one that many people find more desirable.

Kybella™ is a prescription medicine that contains Deoxycholic acid as an active ingredient. Deoxycholic acid is a naturally-occurring molecule in the body that breaks down and absorbs dietary fat. When Kybella™ is injected into fat beneath the chin, it destroys fat cells so they can no longer store or accumulate fat.

Why Kybella™?

Submental fullness makes daily life hard for many people, both men and women. Some of my clients exercise regularly and still can’t get rid of their double chins. Others find that their submental fullness simply won’t go away because it’s in their DNA.

Whether your submental fullness has developed naturally due to age or is a result of recent weight gain or other conditions, there is an option available to you. Kybella™ can remove submental fullness from your life for good. Kybella™ is an innovative treatment for double chin that may be right for you if:

  • Submental fullness bothers you.
  • Your double chin makes you look older and feel heavier.
  • Surgery is not an option.
  • Your healthy diet and exercise plan won’t take away your double chin.

How Does Kybella™ Work?

Kybella™ is administered in about two to four 15 to 20-minute treatment sessions. During your first visit to my office, we will come up with a customized treatment plan based on the amount of submental fullness you have and based on your treatment goals.

You will receive an injection of Kybella™ into the fat underneath your chin. Your injection treatment visits will be spaced at least one month apart, so we can monitor the visible contouring of your chin profile. Some of my patients require six treatments. If your chin profile has improved after fewer visits, you may no longer need treatment.

During our consultations, we will talk about downtime, safety, and other aspects of Kybella™ treatments. You and I will confirm the costs associated with the Kybella™ treatments, and we will discuss what you can expect in terms of your health and skin in the future.

To get started with Kybella™ treatments, or for more information, call McRae MD Medical Laser Spa for a consultation. I have served patients for more than 20 years, and I am known for greatly improving the well being and quality of life of each person who visits me for help.
