KYBELLA™ is the first and only FDA approved injectable drug that contours and improves the appearance of sub mental fullness.
Southern Tier Dermatology and Aesthetics is proud to announce that we are the sole provider in this area of N.Y. state for this innovative, FDA approved treatment for sub mental fat. More commonly known as “double chin”. Being a leader in the practice of dermatology and cosmetic procedures.
KYBELLA™ (deoxycholic acid) injection is the first and only FDA approved non-surgical treatment to improve the appearance of sub mental fullness that many are plagued by. KYBELLA™ is a non-human, non-animal formulation of deoxycholic acid, and is a naturally occurring molecule in the body that aids in the breakdown and absorption of fat.
When injected into the fatty tissue beneath the chin, KYBELLA™ destroys the fat cells taking away their ability to store or accumulate fat.
If you are bothered by a double chin, ask us about KYBELLA™. Only you and our staff can decide if KYBELLA™ is right for you.
During your consultation, a physician will review the procedure, and customize your KYBELLA™ treatment regimen. We will also discuss expectations, how many sessions I may need, and possible side effects. The majority of patients will require two sessions, spaced four to eight weeks apart.
At your appointment the area to be injected will be anesthetized, and a temporary injection grid will be applied to the affected area. Several small injections will then follow. The entire procedure generally takes 20 minutes. After injections are complete, ice will be applied to the area as swelling is expected.
Most patients will experience swelling of the injection site. Other common side effects are bruising, and temporary numbness. Additional side effects will be reviewed at your consultation.
