There are many signs of aging, but none more frustrating than the sagging or “double chin” that seems to slowly appear as we age.
The double chin, known medically as submental fullness, is not gender specific and affects both men and women equally. The result of genetics, age and weight fluctuation, submental fat is often difficult to reduce despite a healthy diet and regular exercise. For many, submental fat lends to a more aged and unhealthy appearance, affecting self confidence.
Dr. Thomas E. Young, a nationally recognized and double board certified cosmetic physician, now offers a new breakthrough procedure that offers noticeable, lasting results. KYBELLA™, an FDA-approved nonsurgical treatment that contours and improves the appearance of submental fullness, is now available in both of our locations. KYBELLA™ is administered through a series of injections performed in either our Center Valley or Lansdale locations over a period of several months. Each injection usually takes 15-20 minutes and most patients begin to see noticeable results within 3-4 months.
KYBELLA™: How It Works
KYBELLA™ is made from deoxycholic acid, a naturally-occurring molecule in the body that breaks down and absorbs dietary fat. Each injection causes fat cells in the treated area to be reduced, with results beginning to be visible once they are reabsorbed by the body.
After a complimentary consultation to determine that KYBELLA™ is right for you, Dr. Young will perform a thorough examination and discuss your personal cosmetic concerns and goals. He will create a personalized treatment plan to ensure your results will be lasting. The number and timing of injections will be explained as well as the details and costs associated with your procedure.
