Is Kybella Safe?

At Hollywood Dermatology and Cosmetic Specialists, we know how embarrassing a double chin can be. This excess fat on the neck and chin, called submental fullness, can occur for a variety of reasons. Patients do not need to be overweight to experience the appearance of a double chin. If you reside in the South Florida area and are considering a nonsurgical approach to treating submental fullness, our team encourages you to contact their practice to learn more about Kybella.

Understanding Kybella

Today’s advances have allowed our professionals to achieve amazing results with nonsurgical treatments. Kybella is the only injectable on the market designed to target submental fullness. In fact, it is the only one approved by the FDA to be safe and effective at treating patients with a double chin.

Kybella is an injectable treatment that utilizes an ingredient called deoxycholic acid. Deoxycholic acid can target unwanted fat cells when it is injected into the double chin area. The results of Kybella are not immediate. Instead, they occur over time as the area improves in appearance and the submental fullness is reduced.

Is Kybella safe?

Absolutely! Kybella has received FDA approval for the treatment of double chin, and is the only product in the market available and proven to achieve results. Our team of professionals can educate patients on Kybella injections and determine if a patient is a proper candidate for treatment. When administered by a trained professional, Kybella can provide noticeable improvements that patients desire.

Who is a candidate?

Determining candidacy for Kybella starts with a consultation appointment and initial evaluation with one of our professionals at Hollywood Dermatology and Cosmetic Specialists in South Florida. Patients can ask about this treatment, and discuss if surgical intervention is necessary in cases where submental fullness is severe. We can offer a referral to a plastic surgeon in cases where patients are not a proper fit for Kybella.
