At AHSmiles, Dr. Engelberg’s goal is to help patients achieve smiles that they are excited to show off to the world. Sometimes issues with facial esthetics can prevent patients from feeling fully confident with their smiles. Many patients are looking to address unwanted fat underneath their chins, also known as a double chin, to complete their smile makeover. A double chin can impact the way a patient feels about themselves and negatively impact their self-esteem. Fortunately, Dr. Engelberg offers Kybella to address double chins in our Arlington Heights, IL dental spa. Learn more about Kybella below:
What causes double chins?
Double chins can usually be traced back to dietary choices and weight gain. However, if someone in your family has a double chin, you are more likely to develop one as well. Your posture also impacts your chin and neck muscles. If you are often looking down at your phone or sitting slumped over, this can cause your facial muscles to become lax in certain areas. This, in addition to normal consequences of aging, results in the skin losing the elasticity that it once had which is why you may notice that your facial skin beneath your chin has begun to sag.
What is Kybella?
Kybella is a minimally invasive, non-surgical option for addressing double chins. This injectable treatment specifically targets the fat cells in your chin and neck area. It encourages your metabolism to circle back to these cells and break down the fatty deposits around there. Kybella uses deoxycholic acid, a naturally occurring substance in our bodies, to break down and absorb fat. Full results are usually noticed 6-12 weeks after the initial injection. Most patients require 6 treatments over the course of several months to achieve their desired results Cosmetic dentist Dr. Brent Engelberg is trained in the administration of Kybella and has a highly trained artistic eye for creating aesthetically pleasing facial esthetics. You can trust that you are in good hands when visiting our office for facial esthetic services in Arlington Heights, IL.
