Kybella is an FDA-approved injectable treatment that improves the appearance of a double chin, referred to as submental fullness. Click here to learn more about the specific benefits of Kybella treatment and what else is involved during this cosmetic procedure.
Double chins can be extremely challenging to eliminate through diet and exercise alone. Kybella injections can help the process along in a non-surgical, non-invasive manner.
Dermatologist Dr. Tony Nakhla at OC Skin Institute works closely with you to design a specific cosmetic treatment plan to help you improve your chin profile through the use of multiple injections.
What are the results of Kybella cosmetic treatment?
The majority of patients who undergo Kybella treatments will see at least some form of visible results after 2 to 4 treatments. However, studies have shown that the most tremendous results come following 5 or 6 treatments.
Do I need a dermatologist to inject Kybella?
Any injection carries some degree of risk so it is imperative that patients interested in this treatment choose board certified-dermatologist and dermatologic surgeon Dr. Tony Nakhla.
Am I a good candidate for double-chin treatments?
Anyone interested in visiting our OC offices for submental fullness treatment must be over 18. In addition, it must be determined that your double chin is the result of actual fat, and not some other factor that Kybella would not address.
Once you determine this is an avenue you would like to pursue, our cosmetic specialist will screen you to further determine your eligibility. Skin with good elasticity should shrink back into place rather easily. Skin that has lost elasticity might require further procedures after your treatments, including Thermage or other tissue heating systems.
If the doctor determines the skin to be too lax, we may not recommend this as a viable treatment option.
