Dr. Anthony Waechter of Aura Skin Spa is a professional who continually educates himself on the treatments available for a wide range of conditions. With the help of a doctor, many patients who have skin concerns can find a solution for their needs. Men and women who deal with excess fat underneath the chin and neck, or a “double chin,” might feel as though their only option is that of surgical intervention. Continued advances in dermatology and medicine have now allowed for an injectable treatment for submental fullness to be approved by the FDA. This injection is called Kybella.
How Kybella works
Kybella is an injection that is used to treat under-chin fat called submental fullness in a non-invasive manner. Using an ingredient called deoxycholic acid which is developed as a synthetic form, the fat cells underneath the chin can be targeted and broken down with just a few injections spaced several weeks apart. Kybella is an effective way of reducing fat cells which are naturally flushed through the body through the natural process of metabolism.
Who is a candidate for Kybella?
Any adult patient who has mild to moderate submental fullness may want to take the time to speak to the team at Aura Skin Spa to determine if they are a good fit for these injections. During the initial evaluation, our team will examine a patient and ask questions about their overall medical health and wellness, including any prescription medications they take regularly.
How much downtime is involved in Kybella injections?
One of the primary benefits of Kybella is the ability to reduce unwanted fat underneath the chin without requiring time off of work and social activities. Patients can have their injections done quickly and easily in the dermatology office and then return to their normal lifestyle without interruption.
