Choose KYBELLA® at The Dermatology & Skin Cancer Surgery Center at Creedmoor for a non-surgical solution to reduce fat beneath the chin, commonly known as a "double chin." This injectable treatment contains a synthetic form of deoxycholic acid, a naturally occurring substance in the body that aids in the breakdown and absorption of fat. By targeting the fat cells beneath the chin, KYBELLA® effectively destroys them, leading to a noticeable reduction in fullness and improving the contour of the chin and jawline.

What to Expect at Your KYBELLA Appointment

During your KYBELLA appointment, you can anticipate a straightforward and personalized experience focused on reducing submental fat, commonly known as a "double chin." The session typically begins with a consultation with a qualified provider, where your specific concerns and aesthetic goals will be discussed. 

During each session, your dermatology provider will administer a series of injections beneath the chin. The number of injections is determined by the amount of fat present and your desired profile outcome.

KYBELLA gradually reduces fat over subsequent weeks, leading to a more defined jawline. Most patients can resume their regular activities shortly after the appointment, making it a convenient and efficient non-surgical solution for enhancing your profile.

KYBELLA Maintenance Recommendations

Maintaining the results of your KYBELLA treatment involves a combination of proper aftercare and, if necessary, additional sessions based on your individual response. The exact number of sessions required will be determined during your consultation with your dermatology provider, who will assess your specific case, discuss your aesthetic goals, and create a personalized treatment plan based on your unique needs.

After your treatment, it is essential to follow any specific post-procedural instructions provided by your dermatology provider. This may include avoiding strenuous activities, applying ice to reduce swelling, and refraining from excessive sun exposure. 
  • Follow-Up Assessments: Schedule regular follow-up appointments with your dermatology provider to assess the results and determine if additional treatments are needed.
  • Healthy Lifestyle: Adopting a healthy lifestyle with regular exercise and a balanced diet can contribute to overall well-being and help maintain the improved profile achieved with KYBELLA.
  • Sun Protection: Protecting your skin from the sun is crucial. Regularly apply broad-spectrum sunscreen to the treated area, especially if you'll be exposed to sunlight for an extended period.
  • Maintain Weight Stability: While KYBELLA destroys fat cells, maintaining a stable weight helps ensure lasting results. Significant weight fluctuations can impact the treated area.
  • Communication with Provider: If you notice any changes or have specific concerns, communicate with your dermatology provider promptly. They can provide guidance and adjust the treatment plan as needed.
By incorporating these maintenance recommendations into your routine, you can enhance and prolong the positive outcomes of your KYBELLA treatment. Always consult with your dermatology provider for personalized advice based on your unique circumstances.
