Kybella Non-Surgical Treatment for Fat Under the Chin and Selective Body Areas
Dr. Roya Javid of Coastal Valley Dermatology Associates is proud to be one of the first to offer Kybella – a prescription injectable treatment to improve the appearance and profile of moderate to severe fat below the chin (submental fat), also called “double chin" or "turkey neck”.
Kybella can help eliminate submental fat and provide your chin and jawline with definition. Kybella injections are made up of deoxycholic acid, a substance naturally found in the body that aids in the breakdown of fat cells. It is non-surgical, and results appear over the course of one to two months for more natural-looking, gradual fat loss.
Kybella is the first and only FDA-approved injectable treatment that contours and improves the appearance of the “double chin” or submental fullness. In 2016, Kybella was honored with “Best of Beauty Breakthrough Award” by Allure Magazine and the “Most Innovative New Product” at the Beauty Choice Awards by New Beauty.
Introducing Kybella Body
The fat melting injection, Kybella, used for dissolving fat under the chin does an equally great job for small, stubborn areas of body fat such as...
- Upper tummy pooch, stomach fat
- Bra fat in front/back
- Above and inside the knee
- Inner thighs and outer thighs
- Love handles
- Sculpt men's 6 pack - upper/lower abs
This innovative way to remove those small, stubborn patches of fat deposits on your body through Kybella injections are safe and effective when done by a skilled physician who understands the skin and anatomy. It will likely take several injectable sessions to target these fat pads on your body, but the convenience of no downtime and no surgery are great advantages.
How does Kybella work?
Kybella™ is a synthetic formulation of deoxycholic acid, a substance found naturally occurring in the body, which is synthesized and then used to break down and absorb dietary fat. Kybella™ has been under development for more than 9 years, and has been the subject of over 20 clinical studies involving more than 2,600 patients. When properly injected in the submental area, it has been shown to dissolve fat that causes a double chin. The result is a more streamline neck and improved contour along the jaw line.
Are the results of Kybella permanent?
The short answer is yes. Because this is a recently introduced treatment, there are not yet enough patients who have received Kybella™ injections to completely substantiate that claim. However, the clinical findings of the FDA studies indicate that the results are permanent if there are no significant lifestyle changes.
