Kybella

Have you struggled to find a solution for the double chin? Your search may be over! The team at the Center for Dermatology and Cosmetic Laser Surgery is proud to be one of the first in the Plano and Flower Mound areas to offer Kybella™, the innovative non-surgical treatment designed to eliminate submental fullness.

FDA-approved Kybella™ has contoured and improved the appearance of the chin area in numerous clinical trials. Patients who are concerned with the appearance of a double chin appreciate the availability of this treatment, which works through the power of deoxycholic acid. This substance is naturally occurring in the body and has been identified as an acid that breaks down fat cells. In a single session, the appropriate amount if deoxycholic acid is injected into the area of concern. Over time, the Kybella™ solution will progressively destroy fat cells, leading to a more defined jaw line and less fullness beneath the chin.

The double chin is a common cosmetic concern affecting both men and women. There are several factors that may cause fat to accumulate in this difficult area, including genetics and overall weight. The characteristics of the submental area create a challenge for the reduction of fat, leading many people to consider liposuction as a corrective measure. With Kybella™, the first non-surgical solution for submental fullness, this may not be necessary.

The safety of Kybella™ has been confirmed through extensive clinical trials. Possible side effects from treatment are similar to other injectibles. These include mild discomfort, bruising, swelling or redness at injection sites. Minor hardness in the treatment area may also occur. This will resolve over several days or weeks.

Due to the fact that Kybella™ works with the body's natural fat-reducing tendencies, it may take up to six weeks to see noticeable results. Treatments are tailored to the individual, with some requiring two or more sessions scheduled six weeks apart. Your professional at the Center for Dermatology and Cosmetic Laser Surgery will discuss what may be most appropriate to your situation.
