At Dermatology Associates of Northern Virginia, now a part of U.S. Dermatology Partners, we are dedicated to assisting patients in the Sterling area with their skin care concerns. Excess fat around the jaw can result in embarrassment for many people: the dreaded double chin. The double chin is caused by submental fullness, an extra amount of fat in the area that can make patients look heavier in the face than they really are. Patients who are interested in combating this area of concern often believe plastic surgery is their only solution. However, patients can also seek treatment with an injectable called Kybella.
What is Kybella?
Kybella is formulated with deoxycholic acid that is injected to break down the fat cells. This is done over the course of time as the body flushes the cells through the lymphatic system. The result is much less fat in the area and the reduction of the double chin.
What are the benefits of Kybella?
- Fast acting
Am I a candidate for Kybella injections?
The best way to determine candidacy for treatment with Kybella is to visit a doctor at our state-of-the-art practice. Our professionals can evaluate patients and determine if this solution is appropriate for their needs and would meet their goals.
