We want to feel good about the way we look. With the digital age of selfies and constant photographs, we notice our appearances more often, especially our faces and profiles. With the added focus on appearance and its impact on our lives, patients are searching for non-surgical options to look younger or to remove their double chins. For patients near Gainesville, VA, the team at Dulles Dermatology Associates, now a part of U.S. Dermatology Partners, offers Kybella injections to alter the appearance of the neck and chin.
FDA approved treatment
Fat under the chin may be due to genetics and lifestyle factors. Kybella removes the fat to improve the look of the neck and jaw. Kybella comes to us from Allergan, the manufacturers of Botox and Juvéderm for tried and true facial rejuvenation. This injectable treatment is FDA approved to reduce fullness under the chin. Consisting of deoxycholic acid, the product dissolves fat cells, which are then naturally expelled from the body. The result is a more defined jawline and contoured neck.
During your consultation, discuss your expectations with your Board-certified dermatologist to ensure your treatment is customized to your needs. Cost and convenience benefits of Kybella injections include:
- Non-surgical – Injections are done right in the office saving patients the time, money, and downtime required for surgical procedures. No scalpels, general anesthesia, or recovery are necessary.
- No scarring – Previously, lasers or surgery were used to improve the angle of the jawline, chin, and neck, but scarring can occur. Scarring is not present with Kybella injections.
- Lasting results – Improvement is noticeable after a single treatment and the results are permanent. Once fat cells are destroyed, they will not regrow in the treated area.
- Cost may vary – The exact cost of Kybella treatments varies. Every patient is unique and has different amounts of fat to remove. Multiple treatments are needed to get the desired results. Injections are performed at least one month apart.
