In addition to sagging skin around the neckline, pockets of fat may develop under the chin as we age. At Miami Dermatology and Laser Institute, Jill Waibel, MD, FAAD, a board-certified dermatologist, diminishes or eliminates stubborn fat under the chin and around the neck to create a longer, leaner neckline on people living in Miami, Fort Lauderdale and Kendall, FL, and surrounding communities.
What is Kybella®?
Kybella® is a cosmetic injectable FDA approved to eliminate submental fat that accumulates under the chin. When injected, it breaks up and destroys the fat allowing the body to naturally and permanently eliminate it. Kybella® contains a non-animal, non-human form of deoxycholic acid, which is a substance found in the body that aids in the breakdown and absorption of excess fat cells.
Benefits of Kybella®
Kybella® is the only FDA-approved injectable that destroys pockets of fat under the chin and also offers the following benefits:
- Permanent results
- Longer neckline
- Virtually no pain or discomfort
- No downtime or recovery
How is Kybella® Administered?
With Kybella®, the dermatologist injects the gel directly into the targeted area of fat. The gel is massaged around the targeted area to facilitate the breakdown of fat cells. It is important for the dermatologist to know where and how to inject Kybella® to achieve the best results. A Kybella® treatment typically takes about 30 minutes with only one treatment necessary.
