Kybella™ in New York and New Jersey
Kybella™ Non-surgical Treatment for Double Chins
Over the last few years, Kythera Biopharmaceuticals has been working hard to find a solution to one of the most common, yet embarrassing signs of aging. This, of course, is the double chin. Liposuction, lower facelifts, neck lifts, and other surgical procedures have been the only option available for individuals who wanted to reduce their double chin. This issue can now be treated using Kybella™. This treatment is minimally invasive and does not require incisions or recovery time.
How Kybella™ Works
Kybella™ contains ingredients that occur naturally in the body to eliminate fat cells. The unique properties of deoxycholic acid, which is used in Kybella™, offer men and women who want to get rid of their double chins the prospect to do so without surgery.
Why Choose Kybella™?
According to some surveys, about 8 out of 10 people who have a double chin feel self-conscience about it. Many people would like to get rid of it, but the fat that accumulates under the chin and neck usually responds poorly to diet and exercise. This fat also becomes more noticeable as a person ages. Individuals who have a double chin usually do not like the idea of liposuction, which is an invasive procedure that requires downtime. Fortunately, Kybella™ can offer these people a better solution.
Kythera Biopharmaceuticals conducted two clinical trials that involved nearly 1,100 male and female participants. These participants, who were divided into two groups, had moderate to severe fatty deposits under their chin. Each group received six months of treatment using either Kybella™ or a placebo. The individuals who received the Kybella™ treatment saw improvements in their double chins. They also had increased self-esteem. This demonstrated to the FDA that Kybella™ is safe and effective. Our Dr. Goldberg was chosen to be an investigator in these FDA studies.
How Many Treatments Are Required? What Should I Expect?
The amount of injections that are needed will be dependent on each patient. Dr. Goldberg usually recommends that 12 to 20 injections be given on an average visit. Each patient usually requires between two and three visits. These visits are made monthly. When a person has a severe double chin, they may need as many as 50 injections and their treatments may be scheduled only a few weeks apart. When a person is in the office, the treatment usually takes about 15 minutes. The individuals who participated in the clinical studies for Kybella™ noticed results after just a few treatments.
Is Kybella™ Right For Me?
Kybella™ is most effective for most men and women who have double chins that are caused by excess fat.
The best results are seen when patients receive a series of Kybella™ treatments. The area where the treatment is injected, and the number of injections that are needed will vary from patient to patient. For the best results, two to four treatments are usually required.
Can Kybella™ Melt Fat From Other Parts Of The Body?
At this time, Kybella™ has only been approved by the FDA to remove chin fat. There is some evidence to suggest that Kybella™ could effectively be used to treat tiny pockets of fat, such as lipomas or bags under the eyes. Experts do not know if t this treatment will be effective for love handles, arm flab, or similar issues. More research will be needed to find out if this product will be suitable for other uses.
