Despite our best efforts at weight loss and exercise, we can sometimes still retain lingering submental fat under our chins. A double chin can also be genetically inherited. A double chin can make us self conscious and unsatisfied with our profile. If you’re looking for an effective way to eliminate troublesome fat under your chin, our team at Allergy & Skin Spa can help. We offer effective chin fat reduction treatments in the form of Morpheus8 RF Microneedling and KYBELLA® injections. These injections can minimize the appearance of fat without the need for significant downtime or surgery.
What Causes a Double Chin?
The scientific name for a double chin is submental fat and it can collect under your chin after significant weight gain or it can be a genetic issue. When we consume more calories than we use as energy, the excess gets stored as fat, and can end up just about anywhere. Once submental fat forms, it can be especially difficult to get rid of. Thankfully, our team at Allergy & Skin Spa offers several effective treatment solutions to help you contour your profile. The genetic lack of chin projection can also affect our double chin and profile. Adding both KYBELLA® chin treatments and Morpheus8 RF Microneedling can help correct this.
Why Am I Struggling With Double Chin Removal?
When it comes to double chin treatment, typical programs of diet and exercise are often not enough. Unfortunately, no matter how much we would like it not to be true, there is no way to spot-reduce fat through diet and exercise. This is especially true for the fat under your chin because there are few if any exercises made to target that area. For this reason, opting in for an aesthetic treatment may be the best option.
How Can KYBELLA® Chin Treatments Help?
When you visit our LA team for your submental fat reduction treatment, Dr. Kia will administer the KYBELLA® treatment via multiple injections under your chin. The total number of injections will depend on your specific needs. The typical treatment time for KYBELLA® is usually about 15-20 minutes. Up to six treatments spaced at one month intervals each have been shown to deliver the best results. Following your treatment, you may experience some mild side effects. These include swelling, bruising, and numbness under the chin. These side effects typically only last for about three days. After they subside, you will see a dramatic improvement in your profile and skin tightness under your chin. Most patients begin to see the effects of KYBELLA® after three treatment sessions, but up to six may be needed for the best results.
How Can Morpheus8 RF Microneedling Treatments Help?
At Allergy & Skin Spa, we offer Morpheus8 RF Microneedling treatments to help combat double chins. Morpheus8 treatments are minimally invasive, which means that the average downtime is about 24hours. This works by gently introducing radiofrequency technology to lightly heat the facial skin after micro-lesions are introduced to assist in resurfacing and restoring connective tissues. This treatment is a non-surgical technology with a surgical result. It can be safely used on your facial and body areas you feel exhibit wrinkles, discoloration, or acne scarring by rebuilding new collagen. Upon your visit, Dr. Kia will discuss with you the best treatment options to fit your desired results.
