Seattle Skincare Specialist Offers Innovative Treatment for Double Chin Reduction

Dr. Jodie Reinertson Has Introduced the New Injectable Treatment Kybella to CosMedic Skincare, Allowing Patients to Reduce the Unwanted Appearance of a Double Chin Without Surgery

SEATTLE, WA--(Marketwired - Aug 25, 2015) - With the goal of offering patients the most effective solutions available, Dr. Jodie Reinertson, a skincare specialist in Seattle, is pleased to offer the new injectable treatment Kybella™ at CosMedic Skincare. This innovative solution is FDA-approved to reduce submental fat -- commonly known as a "double chin." Dr. Reinertson emphasizes that this injectable treatment is the first of its kind, offering patients the ability to achieve a slimmer neck appearance, which was previously only possible through surgical intervention.

Kybella™ is effective through its unique injectable formula that contains deoxycholic acid. This material occurs naturally in the body and is involved in metabolizing dietary fat. When strategically injected into the targeted area under the chin, Dr. Reinertson explains that Kybella™ can break down unwanted fatty tissue, which is then gradually processed out of the body and does not come back.

The entire treatment takes about 15 to 20 minutes, says the Seattle skincare specialist, making it a convenient, lunch-hour procedure. She notes that most patients requires a series of two to four injectable sessions to achieve optimal results, spaced at least 30 days apart. Following treatment with Kybella™, patients with moderate to severe submental fullness have been shown to obtain a more contoured neck profile.

Dr. Reinertson adds that individuals 18 years or older, who exhibit moderate to severe submental fullness, are considered good candidates for Kybella™. She encourages anyone unhappy with a perceived double chin to consult with a qualified professional to learn if the new injectable treatment is right for them.
