KybellaThe Spa & Laser Center at Southside Dermatology in Jacksonville offers various non-surgical treatments that can restore a youthful appearance and increase confidence. We understand that submental fullness, sometimes referred to asa "double chin," can bother people. Therefore, we are proud to offer Kybella, an innovative treatment that can help men and women feel better about their chin profiles. When exercise and dieting have proven unsuccessful, Kybella may be the ideal non-surgical solution for reducing moderate to severe fat deposits on the upper neck.
Kybella is composed of deoxycholic acid, a molecule in the body that aids in the breakdown and absorption of dietary fat. We inject Kybella into the fat deposits beneath the chin. The result is reduced submental fullness, a more attractive appearance, and improved chin contours.
A treatment session can typically be completed during a lunch break and results are long lasting. There are typically several injections; however, we will make the procedure as comfortable as possible. Some patients may require two or three treatments before achieving optimal results. We recommend treatment sessions at least four weeks apart.
Kybella is approved by the FDA as a safe injectable for treating submental fullness.
More than 20 clinical studies have been completed for Kybella. Over 1,600 patients were treated with the injection. According to the studies, patients reported feeling younger and happier based on their chin profiles.
If you want to explore Kybella, we recommend scheduling a consultation with our well-respected board certified dermatologist and dermatologic surgeon, Dr. Mary Pentel. She will examine your face and review your medical history. It is important to tell her about medications you take, including vitamins and herbal supplements. If you are a candidate for Kybella, Dr. Pentel will tailor a treatment plan that meets your needs. With Kybella, you can gain a newfound confidence about your chin profile without surgery.
