Tampa Bay Specialist Introduces Non-Surgical KYBELLA Double Chin Treatment

Dr. Jeffrey Hunt of Vein & Cosmetic Center of Tampa Bay Announces the Addition of KYBELLA to His Practice, a New, Non-Surgical Injectable Treatment for Double Chin

TAMPA BAY, FL--(Marketwired - Dec 1, 2015) - Submental fat, or "double chin" as it is commonly called, results from an accumulation of fatty tissue under the jaw and chin. Dr. Jeffrey Hunt, a specialist in Tampa Bay, explains that this condition can be a source of discomfort and self-consciousness for many people. Traditionally, he says, liposuction was the only cosmetic solution. However, a brand new injectable technique called KYBELLA™ is now available to help reduce excess fat in this area and improve facial contour without surgery.

KYBELLA™ is FDA-approved to reduce submental fullness (double chin) in patients aged 18 years and older. Dr. Hunt says the injectable is comprised of deoxycholic acid, a molecule that naturally occurs in the body. KYBELLA™ works by destroying fat cells in the targeted area, he explains, which can then be removed through natural metabolic processes.

At his practice, Dr. Hunt says he and his extensively trained registered nurses, Kristen Thornley, ARNP and Jamie Johnson, ARNP, perform this treatment on individuals who are dissatisfied with their appearance due to double chin. He says that in addition to addressing this condition, benefits of KYBELLA™ typically include:

  • Relatively brief downtime
  • Minimal discomfort and side effects
  • Gradual, natural looking results
  • Long-lasting outcome

Dr. Hunt states that he is excited to introduce KYBELLA™ to patients in the wider Tampa area. He says KYBELLA™ can help a broad range of individuals who wish to improve their facial contour without undergoing invasive surgery, and he advises people interested in this procedure to seek out an experienced medical professional who is extensively trained in this technique to maximize comfort, safety, and results.
