Eliminate your double chin
Dr. Julie Sofer is now offering a non-surgical treatment to reduce or eliminate your double chin. If you have fat deposits below your chin, also known as a “double chin,” KYBELLA® could be the answer for you. Dr. Sofer recommends this treatment as a safe and effective prescription medicine that when precisely injected, removes moderate to severe amounts of fat below your chin.
What is KYBELLA®?
KYBELLA® contains an FDA* approved active ingredient, deoxycholic acid, which is a naturally-occurring molecule in your body. This molecule aids your body in breaking down and removing excess fat. Skillfully administered by Dr. Sofer, KYBELLA® eliminates submental fat, or your double chin. A frequently asked question by Dr. Sofer’s patients is, does the fat return? Dr. Sofer advises that because KYBELLA® causes the destruction of fat cells, these fat cells are removed and cannot store or accumulate any new fat.
*FDA approval release: “Kybella® is identical to the deoxycholic acid that is produced in the body. Deoxycholic acid produced in the body helps the body absorb fats. Kybella® is a cytolytic drug, which when injected into tissue physically destroys the cell membrane. When properly injected into submental fat, the drug destroys fat cells; however, it can also destroy other types of cells, such as skin cells, if it is inadvertently injected into the skin.”
Who is a candidate for KYBELLA®?
Good candidates for KYBELLA® include both men and women who do not like their appearance or profile due to a double chin. Many people are troubled by this excess fat that can be due to genetics, aging and gravity, or weight gain. This specific type of fat (submental) is often resistant to diet and exercise. In fact, according to a survey by the American Society of Dermatologic Surgery demonstrated that 67% of adults are bothered by double chin!
If you have fat pockets below your chin and are unhappy with your facial profile ask Dr. Julie Sofer if KYBELLA® is right for you.
What results can I expect from KYBELLA®?
Dr. Sofer advises her patients that they can expect to see results from their KYBELLA® treatments after 2 to 3 treatment sessions. During your meeting with Dr. Sofer she will advise you on the number of recommended sessions. She will discuss your facial/neck rejuvenation goals to determine if other facial treatments may be needed to accomplish your goals. Results may vary based on your individual needs.
