Cosmetic Laser Dermatology is excited to offer the brand-new FDA-approved Kybella treatment from Kythera. Kybella is a groundbreaking new non-invasive treatment for double chins. In the past, the only effective options for reducing fat underneath the chin were plastic surgery or liposuction; however, now this fat can be reduced through a simple series of injections!

How Kybella Works

Kythera KybellaKybella is formulated with deoxycholic acid and works by breaking down the targeted submental fat cells under the chin. The fat cells are targeted and destroyed, then naturally eliminated by the body. Kybella has been in development for eight years, and has undergone 19 clinical trials involving over 2600 patients. It is now FDA-approved for reducing fat underneath the chin!

It is important to visit an experienced, board-certified dermatologist such as those at Cosmetic Laser Dermatology for a Kybella treatment, as they will know exactly where to place the injections for the best results. Following a Kybella treatment, patients may experience temporary bruising, swelling, or numbness; however, these side effects are short-lived and patients do not even need to wear a bandage out of the office!

Who is a Candidate for Kybella?

Many men and women have double chins that they would like to get rid of. Double chins can occur even if a person is not otherwise overweight, and tend to make a person seem heavier than they really are. There are no targeted exercises to get rid of a double chin, and if it hasn’t gone away after a lifestyle or diet change, chances are it’s not going to. If you have a double chin, Kybella could be great for you.

However, if a person is suffering from loose, sagging skin under the chin, Kybella may not be the right choice. Kybella targets fat cells, not loose skin. If you have sagging skin under your chin you’d like to be rid of, Ulthera, a skin tightening procedure, may be better for you.
