When you walk around the Park City film studios trying to get a glimpse of the shooting of the new series titled “Yellowstone” you’re likely to see some doubles. You know, the actors who stand in for the more famous actor when they are setting the lighting, blocking a scene, or performing some dangerous stunt.
Those doubles are very helpful when making a movie or TV show.
But there is another double that many Americans would like to see far less, and we don’t mean on the movie or TV screen. They don’t want to see these doubles looking back at them in the bathroom mirror — double chins.
Everyone likes to think other people have double chins, but the reality is that most of us have some business going on beneath our jaw. You can call
it submental fullness if you want. That’s the clinical term for “double chin,” and it kind of sounds better.
Double chins have been a touchy subject in the aesthetic universe; there wasn’t much a person could do about them except for a lower facelift or a neck lift. You were out of luck if you weren’t interested in surgery. Now that has changed with Kybella®, a prescription medicine available from Dr. Saltz and the team at Spa Vitoria. Kybella® is the prescription brand name for an injection formulated with deoxycholic acid that dramatically improves the appearance and profile of moderate to severe fat below the chin, the proverbial double chin.
Most people have a double chin
Aging and sagging skin go together like Kim Kardashian and Twitter. There are a variety of factors that play a part: the pull of gravity, simple intrinsic aging (where decreasing production of collagen means the skin has less underlying support), genetics (some people simply have looser skin below the jawline), and weight gain. All of these factors cause our skin to droop. And because the skin under the chin has no underlying bone or muscle beneath it, it’s even more obvious when it becomes lax and hangs downward.
Kybella® to the rescue
The basis of Kybella® is deoxycholic acid. Deoxycholic acid is a naturally occurring molecule in the body whose job is to aid in the breakdown and absorption of dietary fat. When injected into the fat beneath the chin, Kybella® (and its deoxycholic acid) destroys the fat cells. After those cells are gone, there is no longer a storage mechanism to accumulate fat in the area. So your double chin shouldn’t return!
Multiple treatments yield the best results
We customize our Kybella® treatments for every patient. Some patients see the results they want after two to four treatments; others require six. The number of treatments will depend on the amount of fat stored under your chin, along with your desired final profile. Each treatment is spaced four weeks apart.
