Anyone with a double chin will always tell you how much they hate it—especially when they notice it in the mirror or in photos! For many having a double chin is troublesome to their confidence and self-esteem. A smooth and toned chin and neck are all they dream about. Fortunately, Toronto’s Elements Spa offers a no downtime, nonsurgical solution to reduce your double chin and get your confidence back.

Having a double chin can happen as a result of the natural aging process, weight gain, or one’s genetic makeup. Unfortunately for many of these patients, a strict diet and exercise plan isn’t enough to budge or target the pesky fat under the chin. For this reason, medi-spa intervention is a phenomenal option.

What is Kybella?

Kybella is an FDA-approved injection that subtly works to melt away any stubborn fat pockets at the injection site. Our patients love Kybella because it is nonsurgical, noninvasive, painless, and requires no downtime, or anesthesia. It can also provide long-lasting results which include a streamlined and toned chin with a treatment that takes less than 30 minutes. Dr. Adibfar begins by marking out parameters under the patient’s chin for a clearer map of where the injections need to be administered. After injecting, patients can return to their daily commitments. Patients with a larger injection area may notice more swelling than those with only minor amounts of fat.

What is Kybella Made From?

Kybella is made from deoxycholic acid, a natural compound found in our bodies that metabolizes fat. It breaks down fat cells and flushes them out of the body. When used to treat a double chin, Kybella destroys and dissolves the fat cells at the injection site and the cells exit the body naturally.

All patients are unique and even with a double chin, the number of sessions will need to be customized for optimal results. Patients typically require one to three spaced sessions and as mentioned, there is no recovery required.

Why Rejuvenate with Kybella?

As with the introduction of any injection, patients should always seek the expertise of an experienced injector or surgeon for the best results possible. At Elements Spa, board-certified cosmetic plastic surgeon Dr. Adibfar and his medically-trained staff are highly-educated in delivering Kybella in a way that ensures better results. A board-certified cosmetic plastic surgeon like Dr. Adibfar is well-equipped and an experienced student of facial anatomy and biology. An experienced injector will also reduce any chance of infection or scarring.

Kybella works remarkably to deliver immediate results and high patient satisfaction. Full results are usually shown up to four weeks after treatment as the fat cells continue to be flushed permanently through the body. For men and women between the ages of 19 and 65 with fullness in the chin and no time in their schedule for a traditional surgical procedure, Kybella proves itself a great option.
