Stop Seeing Double!

With Kybella, you can reduce the extra pocket of fat underneath your chin for a much more attractive profile.


It seems like every second of every day someone is snapping a photo and that no moment is safe from being captured on Facebook, Snapchat, or Instagram. For those of us with double chins, it’s a disheartening reality, and we are always having to reposition, push our chins out, or sit while everyone else is standing. All in an attempt to make our double chins disappear. Inevitably we fail, right there on social media for the whole world to see - our embarrassing, lumpy, saggy double chin. Ugh!

Whether your double chin is something you’ve had most of your life, or an issue that has developed over time, or even a recent concern, you may be wondering what caused this extra pocket of fat to show. It could surprise you that genetics is the main culprit, followed by aging and weight gain. Many people who don’t have issues with their weight still suffer from an extra fat pocket under their chin. No matter how much you exercise or diet, it stubbornly sticks around and won't go away.

  • So, What Are The Options For Getting Rid Of A Double Chin?

    chin_injectionYou’re actually very lucky, because, today, there are more options than ever for blasting away that pesky chin fat. However, some are much more invasive and expensive than others, some require much more downtime, and some are just ineffective to achieve the long lasting results you desire.

  • A surgical neck lift certainly could be right for you if you have an inordinate amount of loose skin in addition to a double chin. However, as with any surgery, this is not an option to consider lightly. The procedure often lasts several hours, and there is a high likelihood, it will leave you both swollen and bruised. You can also expect to have at least two weeks of recovery time, and bruising can last a few weeks, while swelling can be apparent for up to a few months. Also, scarring can occur underneath your chin and almost completely around both ears. Finally, the price tag for this procedure can be a whopping $10,000 or more!
  • Micro liposuction is less invasive than neck lift surgery; however, the procedure still requires an incision that is about a couple of millimeters wide under your chin. Then, a tiny tube is placed in the chin, and fat is sucked out with a vacuum. Fun! While it is only about a 30-minute operation that leaves minimal bruising, are you going to be comfortable having a tiny permanent scar underneath your chin and shelling out $4000 for it?
  • Over-The-Counter Skin Creams that are marketed as an effective way to treat the fat under your chin say that they will tighten the skin in the neck area thereby hiding your double chin. The directions for these creams indicate that you should apply very generously to the neck and chin area twice a day. Unfortunately, none of the effects touted by the manufacturers of these creams have been validated by the FDA. Nor do any of these creams have proven long-lasting clinical results. So, if you choose to go this route, you could be investing in these creams - which can run you as much as $100 per small jar - for life.

We understand if you think that none of these options are optimal for you. But before you decide that your only chance at reducing your double chin is doing daily, and very silly, mouth exercises like the tongue press, the pout and tilt, and the jaw release, let SkinMD tell you about an excellent, non-invasive option for reducing your double chin. It’s called Kybella.

What Is Kybella And How Does It Work?

This injectable was explicitly designed to destroy fat cells under your chin to improve your profile. At SkinMD, we have found this first-of-its-kind, FDA-approved injectable treatment to be highly effective in contouring, reducing, and improving the appearance of a mild to moderate double chin.

The active ingredient in Kybella is synthetic deoxycholic acid, a naturally occurring molecule in the body that aids in the breakdown and absorption of dietary fat. When injected into the fat beneath the chin, Kybella destroys fat cells, resulting in a noticeable reduction in fullness under your chin. The great news about Kybella is that once these cells are destroyed, they can no longer store or accumulate fat. Further treatment is not expected once you reach your desired aesthetic goal.

Kybella is a treatment that will be customized by our medically trained staff based on the amount of extra fat under your chin, to meet your unique aesthetic goals. Best of all, this in-office procedure is simple, takes only about 30 minutes, and, just a few weeks after your first injection, noticeable results will be seen.

So, are you ready to get rid of that frustrating double chin and have a younger, thinner-looking face in no time?

Then, the first thing you will want to do is schedule a one-on-one consultation with a member of SkinMD’s medical staff. During this complimentary session, your personal patient coordinator will:
