Double chin, single focus of Kybella injections: New York City specialist shares the cost and benefits
A single type of non-surgical treatment can eliminate your double chin. Among those patients with moderate to severe “submental fullness” and good skin elasticity, Kybella restores the definition of the lower third portion of your face. This area plays an important role in overall facial appearance and balance. Board-certified dermatologist Dr. Stephen L. Comite is excited to introduce you to Kybella injections and its cost and benefits in New York City at his practice, located in Midtown Manhattan. Depending on your personal needs and characteristics, you may find that Kybella gives great value – just like so many SkinProvement Dermatology New York patients have discovered.
Kybella is similar to other injectable treatments; it is a formulation that is administered via thin needles to specific areas of the face for cosmetic correction. So, the cost of treatment depends on the size of the area to be treated, and the amount of fat that exists between the chin and neck. Generally, two or three vials of Kybella may be used during treatment, but some patients require more. While some patients get the trim and youthful definition they desire after one or two sessions, others may require three or more treatments to get their desired contours.
Dr. Comite has served as a consultant for injectable product companies, trains other dermatologists on their appropriate use, and has even innovated techniques to maximize comfort and patient experience.
Used for the removal of stubborn fat in small areas, Kybella contains a synthetic form of acid naturally present in our bodies. Deoxycholic acid works by triggering a process, whereby fat cells are selectively dissolved and eliminated. Unlike other fat reduction methods that aren’t effective at treating double chins, or ones that simply reduce the size of the fat cells, Kybella destroys these cells. Once the fat is successfully treated, it’s gone for good, as long as you don’t gain a significant amount of weight. A healthy lifestyle supports many of SkinProvement Dermatology New York’s cosmetic procedures.
One uncommon risk is a side effects, nerve damage that can cause an asymmetric smile (that eventually resolved among all patients).
Kybella is also attractive for patients who don’t want to (or aren’t candidates for) surgery. There is no cutting, incisions or associated surgical risks such as downtime, anesthesia, and scarring. Additionally, its active ingredient has a tightening effect – you aren’t left with saggy, baggy, excess skin!
