Skin Laser & Surgery Specialists offers Kybella treatments to our patients. Kybella is a non-surgical aesthetic treatment. It was recently approved by the FDA to reduce excess fat that is found under the chin. Our NYC Kybella treatment can help men and women to reduce their double chin without having to undergo surgery!

Kybella non-surgical treatment for double chins

Over the last few years, Kythera Biopharmaceuticals has been working hard to find a solution to one of the most common and embarrassing signs of aging. This, of course, is the double chin. Liposuction, lower facelifts, neck lifts, and other surgical procedures have been the only option available for individuals who wanted to reduce their double chin. This issue can now be treated using Kybella. This treatment is minimally invasive and does not require incisions or recovery time.

How Kybella works

Kybella contains ingredients that occur naturally in the body to address fat cells. The unique properties of deoxycholic acid, which is used in Kybella, offer men and women who want to get rid of their double chins the prospect to do so without surgery.

Why choose Kybella?

According to some surveys, about 8 out of 10 people who have a double chin feel self-conscience about it. Many people would like to get rid of it, but the fat that accumulates under the chin and neck usually responds poorly to diet and exercise. This fat also becomes more noticeable as a person ages. Individuals who have a double chin usually do not like the idea of liposuction, which is an invasive procedure that requires downtime. Fortunately, Kybella can offer these patients a better solution.

How many Kybella treatments are required? What should I expect?

The number of injections that are needed will be dependent upon each patient. Dr. Goldberg usually recommends that 12 to 20 injections be given on an average visit. Each patient usually requires between two and three visits. These visits are made monthly. When a person has a severe double chin, they may need as many as 50 injections and their treatments may be scheduled only a few weeks apart. When a person is in the office, the treatment usually takes about 15 minutes. The individuals who participated in the clinical studies for Kybella noticed results after just a few treatments.

Kybella procedure

The best results are seen when patients receive a series of Kybella treatments. The area where the treatment is injected, and the number of injections that are needed, will vary from patient to patient. For the best results, two to four treatments are usually required.

Can Kybella melt fat from other parts of the body?

At this time, Kybella has only been approved by the FDA to remove chin fat. There is some evidence to suggest that Kybella could effectively be used to treat tiny pockets of fat, such as lipomas or bags under the eyes. Experts do not know if this treatment will be effective for love handles, arm flab, or similar issues. More research will be needed to find out if this product will be suitable for other uses.

A message from Dr. David Goldberg and the team at Skin Laser & Surgery Specialists of NY & NJ:

Dear Patients,

Our providers and staff recognize that we are all faced with difficult times as this pandemic continues to unfold throughout our area. However, the continuation of your care remains our top priority!

At this time, our New York City office is temporarily closed.

In our effort to provide you with the highest level of service, the Hackensack and Hillsborough NJ offices will remain open until further notice with limited hours of availability. We ask for your understanding with our protocols on hand washing and social distancing when you arrive for your appointment. Please do not come to the office if you are experiencing a cough, fever, shortness of breath, or other symptoms associated with COVID-19.

Should you prefer not to visit the office in person, our providers are now offering virtual office visits. This is commonly known as telemedicine, or in this case, teledermatology. Our dedicated concierge team will assist you in scheduling a virtual appointment with your provider, including those in the New York City office.

Currently, the government mandates that the only way to have these virtual visits is to communicate via FaceTime, Skype, Zoom, or WhatsApp video. This is because your medical providers needs to see you, and you can show the provider the problem area of your body that you are concerned about. You will also be able to discuss any other issues regarding your ongoing care or for any new skin concerns you may have. Your provider may tell you that an in-person visit may be required for testing or more in-depth examination. In that case, a concierge team member will reach out to schedule an in-office visit.

To schedule your in-person or virtual appointment, please call our office at 908-359-8980 or email [email protected] Our concierge team members will schedule a time for your medical provider to call you back. We have set aside times for all of our medical providers to call you for your virtual appointment.

Please be aware that virtual visits must be billed to your medical health insurance just as they would for an in-person office visit. If your insurance has recently changed, please have that information ready to provide to our team members. Depending on your insurance plan, you may have financial obligations such as co-pays, deductibles, and co-insurance just as you would for an in-office visit (at the present time, the government has only waived co-pays related to COVID-19 testing).

We understand that this is a stressful time, but we are here for you!

Stay safe and healthy,

Dr. David Goldberg and the team at Skin Laser & Surgery Specialists of NY & NJ
