Are you experiencing dissatisfaction with the appearance of a “double chin” on your facial profile?

What is Submental Fat?
The accumulation of fat underneath the chin, also known as submental fat, is a common aesthetic condition that can be caused by the natural aging process, heredity, obesity, and other factors. In a recent survey, about 67 percent of Americans reported being unhappy about the submental fullness in their lower faces. While extensive procedures such as liposuction have traditionally been utilized to remove submental, Kybella® now offers a nonsurgical, low-risk solution that can create maximum results without the healing or downtime.
What is Kybella®?
This minimally-invasive injectable treatment is formulated with deoxycholic acid, which is found naturally in the body and aids in the breakdown and absorption of fat. When injected into the fatty tissues of the lower face with a fine needle, this deoxycholic acid solution permanently disables fat cells and prevents them from storing or accumulating fat in the future. This process results in tighter, firmer contours underneath the chin, improving the overall appearance of your facial profile.
The first FDA-approved injectable of its kind for the indication of destroying moderate to severe cases of submental fat, Kybella® can help improve the shape of your face subtly without appearing as though you have “had work done.” At Seamist Medspa, our medical team is highly trained in this procedure, ensuring results you can trust.
Are There Any Side Effects?
As deoxycholic acid is a molecule that occurs naturally in the body, treatments are typically easily tolerated without any major side effects or complications. Slight bruising, swelling and redness may occur at injection sites but typically subside within a day or so. Kybella® should always be injected by a medical professional in order to guarantee the right dosage and correct indications. During your consultation with our medical team, your health and medical history will be assessed in order to determine if Kybella® is right for you.
Multiple treatment sessions may be necessary in order to achieve your aesthetic goals. Our medical team will create a customized treatment plan for you depending on your individual condition and preferences.
