We are excited to announce that we are now treating unwanted double chin fat with Kybella – the new and only FDA-approved injectable treatment to reduce unwanted fat in the under-chin area. Genesis Lifestyle Medical is only one of handful of doctors in Utah thus-far, who has been trained and certified to inject this one-of-a-kind product. Kybella is an injectable form of DCA – one of the bile salts that occur naturally in your body. Bile salts dissolve the injected fat in your diet, but when injected directly into your under-chin area, breaks that fat down too! Generally 2-4 treatments spaced every 6 weeks are required. Side effects are minimal and are mostly limited to transient swelling and tenderness. Not everyone who hates their chin/neck/jawline area is a candidate for Kybella. It does not treat saggy skin, only fat. So it’s best to consult with Genesis Lifestyle Medical first to ensure that you are a good candidate. Once your treatment goals are achieved, retreatment is not expected since the fat is permanently destroyed.
