How a simple injectable treatment can address a double chin

At Current Dermatology and Cosmetic Center, we see patients who come into our practice with a range of cosmetic concerns. In addition to issues with the skin and hair, patients with a double chin, medically known as submental fullness, may be unsure whether a dermatologist can assist. Fortunately, Drs. Molly Walterhoefer and Megan Casady Flahive of Annapolis, Maryland, are pleased to offer a solution for patients to consider: Kybella injections.

What is Kybella, and how do these injections provide double chin removal?

With Kybella, patients can delay or even eliminate the need for liposuction or facial plastic surgery. Kybella is an injectable formulated from a molecule called deoxycholic acid. Deoxycholic acid breaks down and absorbs dietary fat. By injecting Kybella into the underlying fat of the neck area, it works to dissolve away fat cells to reduce fullness under the chin.

What can I expect from my appointment?

Kybella double chin removal injections are completed in-office during a relatively brief appointment with Drs. Walterhoefer and Flahive at Current Dermatology and Cosmetic Center of Annapolis. During the procedure, patients can expect some localized discomfort that can come with any type of injectable treatment but is often well-tolerated without anesthetics. The results from Kybella injections are visible within several weeks after treatment but may require multiple treatments to achieve a patient’s desired outcome. This is also extremely dependent on how much excess fat remains in the area, as more severe cases of submental fullness may require additional injections for the final results expected.

For patients searching for a solution to their double chin concerns without undergoing surgery or downtime, Kybella may be an ideal option to consider. Patients must request a consultation visit with our team of professionals to determine whether they are appropriate candidates.
