Kybella is a non-surgical treatment for your double chin (submental fullness).
The dreaded double chin typically comes from an increased fat deposit underneath the chin. It probably develops from a combination of aging, weight changes, and possibly genetics. The most annoying thing about a double chin is that it usually will not go away with diet and exercise and tends to make people look heavier and older than they are.
Kybella™ is an injection treatment available at Miller Family Dermatology to improve the contour of a double chin and is a good non-invasive alternative to liposuction. It is a naturally occurring substance, deoxycholic acid, that our body makes. When injected into fat, it that destroys the fat cells. Most individuals need a series of two to four in-office injection treatments.
Benefits of Kybella:
Surgery or liposuction used to be the only option to remove excess fat beneath the chin. Kybella injections allow us to treat this problem in a minimally invasive way.
Treatments take about 30 minutes, but most of this time is spent numbing the area with ice and our own proprietary numbing cream.
Patients usually have some swelling for a few days, but ought to be able to return to normal activities immediately.
