Do you have unsightly fat under you chin that you want to eliminate but don’t have the downtime to recover from a surgical procedure? Good news! Now you can get that defined jaw line and youthful profile you desire without surgery. The FDA has recently approved a new non-surgical treatment called Kybella™.
Prior to the safety approval of Kybella™, the only way to treat a double chin was by surgery with liposuction or a neck lift. Now there is another less invasive option.
Kybella™ is a non-animal based injection that destroys fat cells and prevents future fat accumulation. With just a few treatments, you can see your double chin begin to melt away
By using Kybella™, you cut down your treatment and recovery time significantly. Injections are done in-office and take between 20 to 30 minutes with virtually no down time necessary or bandages.
Safe and Effective
The Kybella™ injection consists of purified deoxycholic acid, a naturally occurring molecule in our bodies that absorbs fat. When Kybella™ is injected into the excess skin beneath your neck the fat cell’s membrane is disrupted. This causes the destruction of the fat cells. The body then naturally reabsorbs the pieces of the damaged cells and metabolizes them as normal. Most patients only need between two to six treatments to achieve their desired look.
The FDA approved Kybella™ in May 2015. They found that when injected properly, Kybella™ is safe, causing only redness and minor swelling and bruising.
Dr. Supriya Tomar is a skilled, board-certified dermatologist who is excited to be able to offer this cutting-edge treatment to people in Jupiter, West Palm Beach, and Palm Beach County. She was among the first physicians in the United States to introduce Kybella™ to her patients.
If you suffer from a double chin or fatty deposits on your neck and want to enhance the appearance of it without going under the knife, Kybella™ may be the solution for you.
