Excess fat tissue accumulation in the chin area can give an unsightly appearance of what is commonly known as a double chin or triple chin. While liposuction is a popular cosmetic surgery procedure to correct this condition, not every patient is ready for surgery. In such cases, a qualified med spa may offer cutting edge non-surgical chin fat reduction alternatives such as Kybella injections and Ultherapy.
Motykie Medical Spa, led by board certified plastic surgeon Dr. Gary Motykie, provides these innovative and proven non-surgical treatments for chin fat reduction. The medical spa provides these procedures to patients in Beverly Hills, West Hollywood, Los Angeles, and surrounding locations.
Kybella holds the unique distinction of being the first and only FDA approved injectable treatment for the reduction of fat tissue in the submental region. The efficacy of this innovative med spa procedure has been proven through extensive clinical trials and excellent patient and physician feedback.
Kybella, which was approved by the FDA in 2015, commands very high patient satisfaction rates because of its highly desirable results in terms of a slimmer chin profile achieved in a completely non-surgical way. Motykie medical spa receives patients from Beverly Hills, West Hollywood, Los Angeles, and nearby areas for Kybella.
How does Kybella Work?
The key constituent of Kybella injectable medication is a patented synthetic form of deoxycholic acid. This naturally occurring molecule promotes metabolism of dietary fat in the body. The provider will deliver the medication into the targeted submental area with small injections.
The medication immediately begins to disrupt the membrane of the unwanted fat cells. With the destruction of the cell membrane, the fatty content of the fat cells is released and its metabolizing begins in the body just like the other normal fat. Each treatment session of Kybella injections requires only about 15 to 20 minutes. Patients can receive up to six treatments spaced one month apart.
Ultherapy adopts a completely different approach to skin tightening and chin fat reduction. This FDA cleared procedure is based on ultrasound energy, which stimulates collagen and elastin production in the skin’s foundation to tighten loose skin in the chin area. It can lift the skin under the chin with just a single treatment. No downtime or post-operative care is necessary with Ultherapy.
Ultherapy received FDA’s clearance in 2014, and is already popular in more than 40 other countries worldwide. The treatment can improve the appearance of wrinkles and folds in the chin area, and help the patient achieve a rejuvenated, more youthful look of the chin. The key difference is that Ultherapy primarily focuses on skin tightening, while Kybella injections are specifically designed to cut down the fat.
Safe and Effectiveness
The safety of Ultherapy has been established in clinical trials and in more than 350,000 treatments performed globally. The procedure also incorporates traditional ultrasound imaging, which enables practitioners to view the layers of tissue they are treating. This ensures that the ultrasound energy is delivered in a targeted manner for maximum effect.
