Kybella refines San Diego county profiles

Woman Lips Are you one of the 67 percent of the population (as reported by the American Society for Dermatologic Surgery) bothered by fat under your chin? Would you like a trimmer profile, without surgery? Kybella injections from a Board-Certified Dermatologist in Encinitas, Dr. Amanda Lloyd, could be an ideal solution.

What causes double chin?

The clinical term is submental fullness, but you know the problem as double chin or turkey neck. It occurs when subcutaneous fat sags, causing a wrinkle and blurring the angle where the chin meets the neck. The condition adds years to your face and can make you appear heavier. Double chin may be age related, or the result of a weight increase. In some cases, family genetics cause you to store excess fat beneath the chin.

Correction without surgery

Even with healthy eating and exercise, this is a tough spot to “work off.” Historically, your options were liposuction or neck lift surgery. Dr. Lloyd is pleased to offer another choice. Kybella is an FDA-approved non-surgical injectable treatment. It is formulated with deoxycholic acid, a substance that occurs naturally in the human body. Injected into precise points beneath the chin, Kybella dissolves fat.

Kybella by the numbers

  • Treatment takes 30 minutes or less.
  • Expect ten to 20 injections at each treatment (with local anesthetic to ensure your comfort).
  • Minimal downtime! Most patients return to normal activities within a day or two. Potential side effects include minor swelling, bruising, and firmness.
  • Most people achieve the results they are looking for after two treatments.
  • Treatments are spaced two months apart.
  • See visible improvement in four to six weeks.
  • Long-lasting results – the body does not regenerate fat cells.
