New Kybella – Treats Fat Under Chin
Is this a significant advance in the non-surgical world? Yes!
Is it for everyone? No!
Kybella is an injectable that was approved by the FDA for treatment of fat under the chin (you may see this referred to as submental fat). Kybella is now training key dermatologists and beginning to make the treatment available. If you have a mild or moderate amount of submental fat, this is a viable option to avoid surgery.
Average is 2-4 treatments, approx 2 vials per treatments. Treatments should be spaced 4-8 weeks apart. The change is gradual with some skin tightening occurring. Good candidates are less than 60 with good elasticity in the skin.
If you are older with very thin, lax skin, be careful. This makes the angle of the neck more youthful but does not treat those very prominent vertical bands (platysmal bands). All in all though, Kybella will be an excellent choice for many. I’ll have more info coming.
