What Are the Benefits of KYBELLA™?
Are you interested in diminishing noticeable fullness underneath your chin but don’t wish to endure the recovery and/or downtime often associated with a surgical procedure? At Dermatology & Laser of Del Mar, our board certified dermatologist, Dr. Deborah H. Atkin, offers an innovative new procedure called KYBELLA™ that can help improve the appearance of a “double chin” without the need for surgery. This revolutionary treatment involves the careful injection of a deoxycholic acid-based solution into targeted fat buildups below the chin. Once administered, the unique injectable formula works to break down and destroy fat cells, eventually producing an enhanced chin contour with excellent, long-lasting results.
Some key benefits of KYBELLA™ can include:
- A reduction in lifestyle-resistant fat accumulation(s) under the chin
- A slimmer, more youthful-looking chin profile
- No need for incisions or surgery
- Relatively quick treatment (about 30 minutes, depending on the patient’s needs)
- Minimal to no recovery or downtime
- Long-lasting, often permanent results
Ultimately, KYBELLA™ is the first – and currently the only – nonsurgical treatment approved by the FDA to reduce submental fat and improve the appearance of a double chin for patients aged 18 and older. If you are interested in this innovative procedure and would like to schedule a consultation with Dr. Atkin to find out if KYBELLA™ is right for you, please do not hesitate to contact Dermatology & Laser of Del Mar today.
