Fat Dissolving

Say goodbye to the double chin! Franklin Skin and Laser is thrilled to offer Kybella™, and Dr. Bengelsdorf is one of the few select, board certified surgeons in the Cool Springs area to be performing this exciting new treatment.

Submental fullness, also known as a pesky “double chin,” is a common flaw that many clients struggle with. Problem fat that accumulates beneath the chin and neck region is notoriously difficult to get rid of despite persistent exercise and dietary efforts. Thankfully, with advancements in non-invasive aesthetic treatments, there is now a highly-effective and non-surgical solution for eliminating stubborn fat and achieving a defined jawline with Kybella!

What is Kybella?

Kybella is a specially formulated injectable treatment that offer a non-invasive alternative for surgical procedures.  Kybella is composed of a natural occurring substance in the body known as deoxycholic acid. This component works to destroy fat cells and aids in the breakdown of dietary fat during digestion. Once injected, this specialized injectable works to target and destroy fat cells, leaving you with a slimmer jawline and contoured profile. Kybella is the only injectable that is FDA-approved for the treatment of submental fullness. WIth this revolutionary injectable, you can achieve the sculpted and younger-looking jawline you desire!

What to Expect

Like with any aesthetic treatment, an initial consultation is first required in order to develop a personalized treatment plan tailored to the specific needs and goals of each client. The process is quick, and is performed as an in-office procedure. During treatment, Kybella is delivered to the targeted treatment area through a series of tiny injections. The injection process may cause minimal-discomfort. Once delivered, Kybella begins the natural process of breaking down fatty tissue within the chin region. The fat cells are destroyed and then permanently removed from the body through the natural metabolization process.

As your body continues to eliminate the problem fat in the weeks following your treatment, you can enjoy visible results for a newly contoured jawline. Because Kybella is non-invasive, there is no required downtime following treatment – you are free to return to your daily routine.

Are the Results Permanent?

Kybella effectively destroys problematic fat beneath the chin permanently. However, a healthy lifestyle is necessary in order to maintain results and avoid submental fullness from any remaining fat cells in the area.
