In a recent nationwide study, about 68 percent of men and women reported feeling dissatisfied with the appearance of a “double chin” in their lower face. At Dermatology Associates, we offer the Kybella™ injection to create better facial contours without surgery or downtime.
Dermatology Associates has locations in Norwood, Franklin, and Foxboro, Massachusetts. Contact us today to schedule a consultation with our medical team and find out if you are a candidate for Kybella™.
What is Kybella™?
A prescription treatment that is injected directly into the fatty area of the chin, Kybella™ is approved by the FDA and comprised of deoxycholic acid, a molecule that is found naturally in the body and aids in the breakdown and absorption of fat.
When injected into the chin, the deoxycholic acid disrupts fat cells and completely disables them from being able to accumulate or store fat. This improves the contours of the chin, restoring a youthful profile.
Am I a Good Candidate for Kybella™?
Kybella is approved for treating moderate to severe submental fat in the lower face for adults over 18 years old. Patients who have taut skin in the chin area may see the most dramatic results.
During your consultation with our medical team, factors such as your health, medical history, cosmetic goals and concerns will be assessed in order to determine if you are a good candidate for Kybella™. Some contraindicating medical conditions may require further evaluation before treatment is approved.
Does Kybella Have Side Effects?
Slight bruising, swelling, and redness are common at injection sites, but should subside within a few days. Although the deoxycholic formulation of Kybella™ is easily recognized and processed by the body, there is some risk associated with all cosmetic treatments. Prior to treatment, our medical team will let you known of all possible complications and adverse effects that may apply to you.
Kybella™ is clinically-tested and has a proven safety profile, with over one thousand patients treated.
How Long Will My Results Last?
Although Kybella™ works differently for everyone, many patients see visible results after two to four treatments and after about six months, with several individuals still experiencing results after about two years.
During your consultation, our medical team will create a treatment plan that is tailored to your specific cosmetic needs based on your individual condition.
