Kybella is a non-surgical injection technique to reduce excess fat, specifically beneath the chin, and improve the appearance of the facial profile. Kybella is the only FDA-approved injectable treatment to destroy fat cells and improve your profile by targeting the area under the chin.
The area below the chin, otherwise known as submental fat or the “double chin” is a common area for fat to accumulate as we age. Many patients express frustration with the appearance of their profile due to this fat or loose skin beneath the chin.
At Skincredible Dermatology, we understand that no one wants a double chin. Sagging skin around the jaw, chin, and neck can cause discomfort, and reducing the appearance of fat in this difficult-to-reach area can significantly impact confidence and self-esteem. Kybella can help you achieve a smooth and firm profile.
Kybella is specifically used to treat the fat beneath the chin, firming the shape of the face. Getting rid of the “double chin” can improve the youthful look of the profile and skin. Extra fat in the submental area can make a person appear older or heavier than they are. With a firmer facial profile, many of our patients report feeling higher levels of self-esteem.
Kybella has a satisfaction rate of 79%: patients feel happier about the appearance of their face and the area beneath their chin. Kybella at Skincredible Dermatology is an excellent alternative to invasive and costly surgical procedures.
Kybella’s principal active ingredient is synthetic deoxycholic acid, a substance that naturally occurs in the body, helping break down and absorb dietary fat. When Kybella treatments are injected into the fatty area under the chin, the deoxycholic acid interacts with the body’s natural production of the chemical and destroys fat cells.
The result of Kybella injections are noticeable reduction in fat and submental fullness. Cells eliminated by the Kybella treatments can no longer store or accumulate fatty tissue. Once fat cells are destroyed, they are destroyed for good.
The number of Kybella treatments required depends on the amount of fat being treated and the patient’s unique skin and concerns. At your consultation, our team will determine the number of treatments needed and offer a recommended plan.
Combined with a healthy diet and exercise routine, patients can expect permanent results from Kybella’s fat-destroying treatments. Damaged fatty cells are destroyed for good and once patients reach their desired aesthetic goal, they no longer need to have further treatments of Kybella.
Our team of experts will help determine if Kybella is right for you. Before your treatment, one of our team members will discuss your goals and inspect the area around your chin. If Kybella is right for you, our team of experts will create an individualized treatment plan based on your needs and aesthetic goals.
Kybella treatments take between 15 and 20 minutes and are performed in-office. The FDA-approved procedure is quick and efficient at correcting fat under the chin, and there is little preparation required before your Kybella treatment. We recommend washing your face well before the procedure to avoid any contaminants that can lead to infections at the injection site.
Our team at Skincredible Dermatology is always happy to answer any questions and help you feel comfortable before, during, and after any procedure.
I have a wonderful experience here. The office waiting room was elegant and serene. The front desk associate seem to know returning patience by name and a bit about them. The doctor was thorough and had a lot of options for treatment.
Skincredible and every staff member here are so friendly. They go above and beyond in their ways to make you feel comfortable and well taken care of. I am so happy to have found them!
This appointment was for my 11 year old. She had to have a few numbing shots and the staff was awesome. I am planning on returning for my other daughter. I was very happy. The receptionist is also very sweet and helpful! I would recommend this office based on my first impression!
I've been in ICU nurse for a little over 33 years this guy is exceptional and his professional team is equally exceptional...
There's an old saying "when a nurse speaks everyone listens"...
There's no better place.
Dr. Awadalla and his staff are so accommodating and professional. I got a laser done on my face for acne scarring and it was quick, easy and painless! Super excited for the results!
Such a great facility. The receptionist was so sweet and the PA was great. I felt very comfortable and the place was super clean. The PA answered all my questions and the visit was a success. I highly recommend.
Staff is great and always responsive. Face has broke out in acne from wearing face masks and Adriana got me an appointment with the PA very quickly. I highly recommend that you check this group out!!
Dr. Bobby Awadalla gave close attention to my skin issues. I love the fact he follows up on the treatment procedures. I highly recommend him. He’s an excellent dermatologist. Also, his staff were very knowledgeable and courteous.
