Just a little extra fat in the upper throat area can create the presence of a "double chin" that can be unwanted to both women and men. These additional pockets of fat under the chin -- also known as the “submental area” -- can be caused by genetics, weight fluctuations, or aging that lead to a softer jawline and chin for a less defined profile.
Board-certified physician Dr. Ian Levenson is proud to provide a revolutionary way to get rid of unwanted neck fat at The Colorado Center for Health and Longevity in Greenwood Village. Approved by the FDA (Food and Drug Administration), Kybella is a new nonsurgical treatment designed specifically for treating upper neck fat.
The active component in Kybella is a synthetic version of deoxycholic acid (DA), which works similarly like the body's natural DA to dissolve and absorb fat cells. After it is injected under the chin, you can see a visible decrease in fat. When this fat is destroyed, the cells cannot return so you can enjoy your new, slim neck and strong jawline for years to come.
If you’re ready to get rid of your unwanted neck fat and feel great in your skin, don’t hesitate to reach out to Dr. Levenson and his team of medical estheticians at The Colorado Center for Health and Longevity today.
Your Kybella treatment will be performed during an appointment in one of our comfortable, clean treatment rooms. Here’s how the process works:
Kybella doesn't require general anesthesia, so you’ll be able to leave our office as soon as you’re ready to return to your normal routine. You may experience short-term swelling, numbness, or bruising under your chin, but this shouldn't last more than a few days. Contact The Colorado Center for Health and Longevity right away if you are experiencing any unusual symptoms, such as difficulty swallowing, facial muscle weakness, or uneven facial expressions.
While the fat that is eliminated will not regenerate, the remaining cells can become larger, so you should do your best to maintain a stable weight after your Kybella treatments to keep new pockets of fat from developing. Ideal results after this procedure leave your neck appearing tighter and slimmer, and your neckline will be better defined.
While Coolsculpting was made to treat various areas of the body, Kybella is the only procedure available that is specifically designed for the treatment of the area below the chin. Using this precise formula, Kybella can effectively minimize the appearance of a double chin.
The price of Kybella treatments will vary based on how many treatments are needed. In your initial consultation, a personalized plan will be created to work with your goals and budget. A member of our team will also discuss payments we accept in your first appointment.
During your initial consultation, a personalized treatment plan will be tailored to match your goals. Most often, patients get between two and four Kybella injections to achieve their goals. Kybella treatments need to be made around 30 days apart. You shouldn't receive any more than six injections.
