Before and After

What causes a double chin?

A double chin is usually caused by excess fat and skin that’s accumulated beneath your jaw. As you age, your skin loses some of its elasticity. This sagging, lax skin contributes to the appearance of a double chin.

Genetics and being overweight or obese can also make you appear to have a double chin.

How does TempSure Envi treat a double chin?

TempSure Envi emits radiofrequency energy that  penetrates your outer layer of skin and heats up your skin’s temperature. This stimulates the development of collagen beneath your skin’s surface. Collagen is a compound that contributes to skin strength and firmness. The renewed collagen production at your chin results in a firmer, trimmer jaw line and profile.

Why are TempSure Envi + SculpSure so effective in treating a double chin?

TempSure Envi is unique in that it can maintain a target temperature that’s just right for your skin type and aesthetic goals. Since the temperature is maintained throughout treatment, you achieve tighter skin in a shorter session. Plus, a consistent temperature guarantees safety – TempSure never exceeds the target temperature. SculpSure is designed to target the stubborn fat pockets under the skin using heat and destroys the targeted fat calls permanently. SculpSure fat reduction is up to 24% after each treatment. 

TempSure Envi and SculpSure are also noninvasive, so you don’t have to worry about incisions, blood loss, injections, or infection. It also requires no downtime, so you can go right back to your regular activities following treatment! 

Kybella

Kybella (deoxycholic acid) is FDA approved for treatment for adults with moderate-to-severe fat below the chin, known as submental fat. Kybella is identical to the deoxycholic acid that is naturally produced in the body to help digest fats. Kybella is a cytolytic drug, and when injected into fatty tissues it destroys the fat cells.

Melt away your double chin in as little as two 15-minute in-office treatments. Most patients require a few treatments to see improvement. The safety and effectiveness of Kybella for the treatment of submental fat were established in two clinical trials with adult participants with moderate or severe submental fat. The most common side effects of Kybella include swelling, bruising, pain, numbness, redness, and areas of hardness in the treatment area.

About Submental Fat

Submental fat is a common problem among men and women, even if they are not overweight. The location of submental fat is often times resistant to diet and exercise.

How does Kybella work?

Kybella is deoxycholic acid that kills fat cells by dissolving their outer shell, known as the cell membrane, causing the fat to spill out of the fat cells. The body will then break the spilled fat down into smaller particles and eventually absorbs it.

Is Kybella safe?

Kybella has been in development for 8 years and has been in a number of clinical studies involving over 2000 patients and the safety profile was extensively reviewed by the FDA prior to recent approval. In the largest study, 97.6 percent of treated patients reported improvements in their neck and chin contour.

Results are represented over the course of treatment; not all treatments are shown. A number of treatments are tailored* to the amount of fat below the chin and aesthetic goals; 59% of patients received 6 KYBELLA® treatments in clinical studies.

What are the side effects of Kybella?

The most common side effects of Kybella are bruising, pain during injection, firmness, and swelling. All of these side effects typically resolve within a few days. Most patients had the greatest side effects on their first injection and had less in subsequent injections.

Who is a good candidate for Kybella?

Healthy adults with fatty double chins (submental fat) are excellent candidates. Kybella is not effective for patients with excess skin and muscle laxity under the chin.

Can Kybella be used in other areas of the body?

Presently, Kybella is FDA-approved to be used only in the submental area directly below the chin. Kybella also works in other regions such as the belly and thighs.

How much does Kybella cost?

The cost of each Kybella treatment depends on the size of the fatty area being treated. The average price of each Kybella treatment session will range between $600 and $1200, depending on the size of the fatty area being treated. Multiple treatment sessions may be required to achieve results.
