What is Kybella™?
In the past, patients had to undergo extensive surgical procedures to remove excess chin fat. Now, there’s a simple, injectable solution to the problem of submental fullness — Kybella™. This FDA-approved treatment can be used to eliminate the appearance of a double chin without the downsides of extensive downtime and discomfort.
This product is derived from deoxycholic acid, a substance naturally produced by the body that aids in the breakdown of dietary fat. When injected into the chin during a Kybella™ treatment, this substance works in the same way it does within the body, destroying excess fat cells in the chin area and leaving behind a slimmer, more sculpted profile.
During treatment, a series of small injections are administered into the fatty part of the chin. While side effects like bruising, swelling, redness, or itchiness after treatment are common, these usually subside within a few days of each session. Typically, patients must undergo multiple treatment sessions, performed over several weeks or months, in order to eliminate a significant amount of submental fat.
What are the Benefits of Kybella™ in Santa Rosa?
- Fast, non-invasive solution to excess chin fat
- Long-lasting results
- Safe, clinically-proven treatment
- Injections administered by Dr. Chernoff, an experienced professional
Am I a Candidate for Kybella™ in Santa Rosa?
Nearly any patient interested in eliminating excess chin fat is a potential candidate for Kybella™. This treatment is safe for both male and female patients and can be used to address varying degrees of submental fullness. However, Kybella™ is most effective on patients who have taut skin in the neck area. This is because Kybella™ only affects the fat cells and cannot be used to tighten loose skin.
Don’t let the frustration of submental fullness impact your life any longer — we can help! Contact Chernoff Cosmetic Surgery today for more information about the benefits of Kybella™ in Santa Rosa, or to schedule a consultation appointment. We look forward to hearing from you!
