Double Chin Beware…There’s A New Injectable In Town!
What is Kybella™?
Kybella™ is an FDA-approved injectable drug that is designed to get rid of submental fat. Submental fat, otherwise known as a double chin, is fullness in the chin area that detracts from the overall definition and contours of your face. Kybella™ is a revolutionary formulation of deoxycholic acid, a naturally occurring molecule in the body that aids in the breakdown and absorption of dietary fat. When Kybella™ is injected into the chin area, it essentially causes the destruction of fat cells. Once these cells are destroyed, they can no longer accumulate or store fat. The result is a more contoured, refined jawline without surgical intervention.
As the Medical Director at Tribeca Medaesthetics, located in beautiful Miami Beach, Florida, Dr. Jason Shapiro makes it his priority to offer his patients the most innovative, effective, and safe procedures available. Our professionally trained staff looks forward to meeting with each individual and devising a plan that is customized to meet their specific cosmetic desires. There is no one-size-fits-all plan here. We strive to provide you with aesthetic procedures that produce effective, long-lasting results that will leave you feeling refreshed and rejuvenated without looking overdone.
Kybella™ Procedure Details
Kybella™ is administered by very small injections to the chin area spaced about 1 cm apart. Because the needle is so small, most patients experience minimal, if any, discomfort during the procedure. Your treatment session will only take about 15-20 minutes and will not require any significant downtime. You can expect to see visible results in as few as two treatments, but up to 6 treatments may be scheduled depending on your desired results. Since Kybella™ only targets fat cells, the surrounding tissue will not be affected or damaged by the injections. Once you have achieved the chin profile you desire, retreatment is not expected.
The key to optimal results with Kybella™ is in the correct number and locations for the injections, proper needle placement, and administration techniques. Our injection specialists have been carefully trained in the administration of Kybella™ injections and will only perform your treatment once you fully understand the process, outcome, and potential risks. You can rest assured that you are in good hands with our highly trained staff and practitioners.
Other complementary cosmetic skin treatments may be recommended in order to optimize your chin profile. These procedures will be reviewed and discussed with you in detail so that you will have a full understanding of the expected results and the benefits that these additional treatments may have in ensuring naturally-beautiful results. We are excited to offer our patients this new, non-invasive technique to help them achieve the chin contour they desire!
