chin fat removal dermatologist alexandriaFor years, the only way to treat a double chin was through invasive methods, such as plastic surgery or liposuction. These methods are effective, but the downtime and cost are often prohibitive for the average person who doesn’t have the time to spend on weeks of recovery time or the money to spare on such a complex and invasive procedure. Now, there is a brand-new FDA approved method to reduce chin fat that doesn’t involve any surgical procedures! KYBELLA here in Washington, D.C. is a completely non-invasive way to reduce chin fat, and we at MI Skin Dermatology are happy to offer it to our patients.

Non-Invasive Treatment for Double Chin

non invasive chin fat removal alexandriaKYBELLA is a treatment which has been in development for over nine years and was just recently approved by the FDA. A number clinical studies involving more than 2,600 patients have been conducted using KYBELLA. This innovative treatment involves a patented formulation of deoxycholic acid, which breaks down fat cells after injection. KYBELLA attacks the fat cell membrane, destroying the cells and eliminating them through a natural healing process.

KYBELLA is injected in a regular pattern into the area of the chin needing treatment. It is imperative to have this treatment done by an experienced, board-certified dermatologist such as Dr. Melda Isaac in Washington, D.C., as they will know where to place the injection sites for maximum efficacy and how to avoid any sensitive areas such as nerves or veins.

The KYBELLA Procedure

KYBELLA is a non-invasive procedure that uses injections to destroy submental subcutaneous fat cells. The procedure itself generally takes only around five minutes, and the downtime is minimal. Patients usually take just 2 to 3 days to recover. Unlike other double chin removal options in Washington, D.C., you don’t even need to wear a bandage after treatment.

Side effects of saggy skin treatments such as KYBELLA can include short-term swelling, bruising, or numbness. These effects generally disappear on their own within a few days. There have been no reports of any serious side effects. KYBELLA is FDA approved, safe, and effective for the right candidate.


Many men and women suffer from double chins. Even if a person is not generally overweight, they can have a double chin, which may make them look heavier than they actually are. Chin fat is difficult to get rid of, as it does not always respond to diet and exercise, and can be genetically passed down. With the advent of KYBELLA, we finally have a non-invasive means of reducing chin fat. Now, patients no longer need to undergo complex, surgical procedures in order to reduce or eliminate their double chin. KYBELLA is a less invasive means of double chin reduction! Results may vary between patients.
