Don’t Be a Turkey

Don’t Be a Turkey!

You exercise. You diet. But no matter how good your body looks, you can’t get rid of that double chin… no matter how many steps your FitBit says you take. 10,000 steps? 15,000? Yet the fullness beneath your chin remains.

Now, at U.S. Dermatology Partners Littleton, formerly Apex Dermatology Group, we can erase that “turkey neck” before family photos at Thanksgiving dinner – no surgery required.

Last April, the FDA approved Kybella, an exciting new treatment produced by Kythera Biopharmaceuticals, for moderate to severe fat below the chin, otherwise known as the submental area.

What is Kybella?

Kybella is identical to deoxycholic acid, which is already naturally produced in the body to absorb fat. And it’s so easy and non-invasive, that they demonstrated the treatment live this summer on the Today Show.

Kybella requires 2-4 sessions for maximum results. It entails multiple injections of the deoxycholic acid into the submental area, where it will destroy the fat cells causing your frustration.

Both men and women are benefitting from the confidence boost and younger, healthier look that Kybella offers without the stress or downtime of surgery. Most say the only side effect was minor swelling and a tingling sensation for the few days post-treatment.

Kybella Available in Denver, Colorado

Always investigating innovations in skincare and seeking the least invasive ways to achieve once elusive results for our patients, the team at U.S. Dermatology Partners Littleton, formerly Apex Dermatology Group, is thrilled to offer Kybella here in Denver. Dr. Alexandra Theriault has been trained by Kythera to administer the treatment to ensure the best results.
