At Brilliance Dermatology, our award-winning dermatologist Dr. Hal Weitzbuch is pleased to introduce a revolutionary and innovative treatment for patients who struggle with an unsightly double chin. KYBELLA works within the body to restore a trimmer, more youthful facial profile – without undergoing surgery. Dr. Weitzbuch produces some of the best results in Kybella Thousand Oaks and its surrounding areas have to offer.
What is Kybella?
KYBELLA, formerly known as ATX – 101, is an injectable product. It targets and destroys fat cells, resulting in a more defined jawline, reducing the presence of fatty cells, and can take years off your appearance. Once the targeted cells are impacted by the product, they are shed by the body over the following weeks, never to return. Even if you gain some quantity of weight in the future, the cells affected cannot once again store fat – they are gone.
How does Kybella work?
The active ingredient in KYBELLA is a synthetic formulation of deoxycholic acid, an acid naturally created within the body that functions to break down dietary fat. By injecting this medication into the target area by our highly skilled team of injectors, it triggers the breakdown of the fatty deposits in the under-chin area. The body then goes through a natural process to shed the destroyed fat cells.
Lose the Double Chin – Without Surgery
The entire KYBELLA injection process requires only 15-30 minutes and is not particularly painful to experience. It involves several injections of the product into the areas under your chin where unsightly fatty deposits are marring your profile, making you look older and less attractive.
At Brilliance Dermatology, we are proud to have become known for offering our patients state-of-the-art treatments performed with high level skills, including some of the most extraordinary results in KYBELLA Malibu and its neighboring areas have available. This product must be injected correctly, and in the right quantity for the individual patient to achieve maximum improvements. You can trust our team of highly-trained medical providers to perform KYBELLA injections correctly, and to help you look younger, trimmer, and more appealing – as the double chin shrinks away.
What should I expect following my injection?
KYBELLA injections have side effects similar to other injectables, such as BOTOX or Juvéderm. Some swelling or tenderness is to be expected; however, these symptoms should subside in a few days to weeks. The use of ice or painkillers will help to address any temporary numbness or mild discomfort you may experience – most of our patients who have trusted us to inject KYBELLA report side effects as being minor and resolve within days – our team of expert injectors are extremely well-trained.
You will need several treatments with KYBELLA at our boutique Brilliance Dermatology. Multiple injection sessions at monthly intervals will produce the most dramatic improvement in the reduction of a double chin. While some of our patients have seen dramatic results in just two treatments, some patients may require up to five sessions to produce the reduction in chin fat they want.
Who is a good candidate for Kybella in Westlake Village?
This innovative, non-surgical treatment to reduce a double chin might be the right procedure if you:
- Are 18 years or older
- Have noticeable submental fat or a double chin
- Are in good general health and plan to be after treatment
- Have realistic expectations about the treatment results
- Are not pregnant or breastfeeding
What happens after my treatment?
After your Kybella injections, you may experience mild swelling, bruising, tenderness, or temporary numbness at the treatment sites. However, these side effects are usually short-lived and fade within a few hours or by the next day. Patients can expect to return to their normally scheduled activities after their sessions. If you experience any unusual symptoms such as dysphagia or facial muscle weakness, make sure to contact your provider immediately.
What are the possible side effects of Kybella?
Possible side effects of Kybella include:
- Injury to the facial nerves
- Difficulty swallowing
- Open sores (ulcers)
- Necrosis near the injection site
There are no known negative drug interactions for Kybella; however, previous facial surgeries or cosmetic treatments in the submental area may impact your results. There are not enough studies to confirm the safety of Kybella for women who are pregnant or nursing, so the treatment is not advised for these clients.
