For many of us, getting rid of your double chin is a frustrating and often fruitless goal. If you are fighting this losing battle, the Center for Dermatology and Dermatologic Surgery team is here to help.
Our Washington D.C. clinic provides Kybella injections to help treat your double chin — and feel better about yourself. These U.S. Food and Drug Administration-approved injections are formulated with deoxycholic acid, which assists in the destruction of fat.
If Kybella injections sound like the right solution for you, there are some post-injection care you should be aware of.
As part of your after-care, you should also be on the lookout for any potential — albeit less common — side effects. If you experience any of the following, you should contact Dr. Cheryl Burgess and her team at the Center for Dermatology and Dermatologic Surgery:
Some of these side effects may last for a while during the entire treatment process. That’s because Kybella typically takes more than one treatment. It could take up to six treatments to see the full results. It will all depend on the amount of chin fat and the desired outcome you are seeking. The good news is, each appointment is typically quick, lasting only about 15 to 20 minutes each session.
