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.
