Double Chin Reduction

For those who struggle with a double chin, it is frustrating. The unsightly fat around the face can negatively impact your self-confidence, make photos uncomfortable, and make you look older and heavier than you are. While other body areas typically respond well to exercise and diet, it can be next to impossible to reduce the look of a double chin.

However, innovations in fat treatments have revealed two new options to treat and reduce stubborn fatty deposits under the chin. While surgery is effective, it involves a long recovery time. You can avoid surgery and get back to your everyday activities quickly with two major advances in aesthetic technology we offer our clients at Biomed Spa in Beverly Hills. Some of the revolutionary non-surgical treatments that Dr. Fisher is offering his clients to reduce a double chin is Kybella & Ultherapy. Visit the Biomed Spa for some of the best results from ultherapy and Kybella Beverly Hills has to offer.

Avoid Surgery with Kybella

If you want to avoid surgery with its painful side effects, Kybella is one of the most innovative new treatments now available in the USA. Kybella works by using a substance which naturally occurs in the human body, called deoxycholic acid, that functions to aid in the breakdown and elimination of fat. The treatment is administered by a trained professional in a series of 2 to 6 treatments, based upon the extent of the problem. A session involves a few small injections in the chin area, and each treatment occurs about one month apart. The treatment takes about 15 to 20 minutes to perform, so each session is fast and fits easily into your day. The side effects are minimal and diminish quickly, such as minor bruising, pain, numbness, or redness near the injection sites. Serious side effects are extremely rare.

Increase Collagen Formation with Non-Invasive Ultherapy

Ultherapy in Beverly Hills is a great treatment option for those who do not want to undergo surgery or want to prolong the results of other cosmetic procedures. This innovative alternative to surgery and injections involves the use of an advanced device that delivers ultrasound waves at a precise depth of the skin structure – the level at which collagen formation occurs. The ultrasound waves stimulate the existing cells and activate the body’s process to regenerate the collagen and elastin proteins in the area treated. During treatment, the practitioner uses a specialized Ultherapy applicator to apply ultrasound waves under the chin. This stimulates the generation of new proteins to revitalize skin quality and flexibility, and can reduce the appearance of stubborn fat deposits. The procedure takes about 30 to 90 minutes, based upon the size of the area to be treated.

The side effects of Ultherapy treatment are very mild and usually consist of redness, tenderness, or swelling in the treatment area. These will quickly fade as the days pass. The results of the treatment can in some cases be noticed immediately, but improve with time as the skin produces more collagen and elastin. Most patients require a single treatment, but occasionally additional treatments can improve the results based on the individual’s level of skin firmness and elasticity, and the response to the initial treatment.

Low Risk, Easy Recovery

These two non-surgical alternatives mean that you can revitalize your facial skin and treat that persistent double chin without the downtime, scars, and pain associated with surgery. Kybella and Ultherapy have minimal side effects, and are easily tolerated. Speak with our friendly team at Biomed Spa to find out if you are a good candidate for either treatment. Those who may not be good candidates have the following conditions or situations:

  • Recently had or plan to have surgery near your neck, face, or chin
  • Recently had or plan to have any cosmetic procedures near your neck, face, or chin
  • Have any medical conditions or take medications
  • Are pregnant or plan to be
  • Are breastfeeding or plan to be

Both procedures use naturally-occurring chemicals or processes and the risks are low, but it is important that you consult with a skilled, experienced, and knowledgeable plastic surgeon, like Dr. Garth Fisher, to ensure the treatment is right for you. At Biomed Spa, we focus on patient health and safety in every treatment we perform.
