MI Skin Dermatology is excited to announce the arrival of a new FDA approved treatment for reducing fat underneath the chin that does not require any surgery! So finally say goodbye to that double chin! Kybella is an injectable medication that breaks down submental fat without surgery. This is an exciting development for people who want to get rid of their double chin but who do not want to commit to plastic surgery or liposuction. There is no scar left behind from Kybella treatment.

How Does Kybella Work?

Washington DC KytheraKybella is an injection that breaks down subcutaneous fat by destroying the membrane of the fat cells in the injection sites. Destroying the membrane causes the fat cell to burst, and the contents to be absorbed by the body. The fat cell is thus destroyed completely, and the appearance of your double chin will recede.

The injections must be done in a precise manner to maximize the number of fat cells targeted and to avoid any sensitive nerves in the area. For this reason, it is vital to only have the injections done by an experienced, board-certified dermatologist such as Dr. Melda Isaac.

Benefits of Kybella

The greatest benefit of Kybella is of course that it does not require any kind of surgery, large incision or liposuction! You can reduce the size of your double chin through injections alone. The procedure only takes around five minutes, and there are only a couple days of downtime, as opposed to the weeks of downtime required after a surgical or liposuction procedure. You don’t need to wear a bandage for prolonged period after treatment.

The few reported side effects include short-term swelling, bruising, and/or numbness. These side effects disappeared on their own after a few days. Overall, Kybella is safe and effective, and cleared by the FDA for this use!

Get Rid of Your Double Chin Today!

Double chins affect a large portion of the population, both men and women. Double chins can strike even if a person is not otherwise overweight! The presence of excess fat underneath the chin can make a person seem larger than they really are, and can detract from the natural beauty of the face. Many people are unhappy with their excess submental fat, but in the past the only way to get rid of it was through surgery or liposuction, as diet and exercise don’t always help with this type of fat. Now, with Kybella, there is finally a non-invasive solution for your double chin!
