Kybella Information Session

The product you’ve been waiting for is finally here..Kybella!  As we’ve mentioned before, Kybella is the first and only non-surgical solution to treat the double-chin, or submental fat area.  Submental fullness can impact a broad range of adults, but is not limited to people who are overweight. It can affect men and women of average weight and is typically caused by genetics, aging, and weight gain, which is often resistant to diet and exercise. While surgery used to be the only option to get rid of this pesky condition, Kybella has changed that.  Not only is it non-surgial, it an be done in a 20 minute in-office appointment.

WDC is so excited to be the first practice in Wilmington to bring this game changer to our patients, and we can’t wait for you to experience the amazing results.

We’re having an information session on everything Kybella being held at our office on July 23rd.  The event will take place at 12:00pm and we will be discussing everything you will need and want to know…from how it works, who is an ideal candidate, to how much the treatment will cost.   We can assure you, you won’t want to miss it!  Spaces are limited, so please contact us to reserve your spot today.

Kybella: Get rid of that double-chin!

It’s what everyone in the industry is talking about…if you haven’t yet heard, then you’re in for a real treat! There’s a new product out on the market called Kybella™  that is sure to be a game changer.

Wilmington Dermatology Center will be the first practice in Wilmington to offer Kybella™ treatment to our patients. Dr. Rosalyn George will be among a short list of initial physicians to be trained on the product here in the US.

What is it? Kybella™  is used to treat a commonly undertreated aesthetic condition known as submental fat, or in common terms the “double chin” area. We used to only have the option to go under the knife to make this correction until Kybella™: the first and only non-surgical option on the market to treat the double-chin area. The active ingredient in Kybella™ is deoxycholic acid, a naturally occurring molecule in the body that aids in the breakdown and absorption of dietary fat. When it is injected into the fat beneath your chin, the solution causes the destruction of fat cells, causing the cells to be destroyed and unable to store or accumulate fat.

What can you expect from the procedure? The Kybella™ procedure begins with a customized treatment plan determined by your provider. When you are called back for your appointment, the area will be thoroughly cleaned and a marked template of injection points will be placed under the chin area. The area will then be iced for a series of minutes prior to the procedure to help with any discomfort. The Kybella™ medicine is then administered as an injection into the fat tissue in the submental area tailored to the treatment goals of the patient and their physician. Treatments are typically spaced no less than a month apart and may only be administered by a physician. Many patients experience visible contouring of their chin profile in two to four treatment sessions. Up to 6 treatments may be administered per patient.

FDA approves Kybella!

The world of aesthetics is constantly evolving and WDC does our best to be on top of up and coming treatments, which is why we are so excited about the newly FDA approved, Kybella by Kythera Biopharmaceuticals.

The time has come to finally get rid of that daunting double chin without going under the knife and we couldn’t be more excited! Kybella is approved for the improvement in the appearance of moderate to severe fullness associated with submental fat in adults (which is the fat underneath your chin).

As you may know, submental fullness can impact a broad range of adults including both women and men and can be caused by aging, genetics and weight gain.

How does it work?

Kybella is identical to the deoxycholic acid that is produced in the body. Deoxycholic acid produced in the body helps the body absorb fats. Kybella is administered as an injection into the fat tissue in the submental area. When properly injected into submental fat, the drug destroys fat cells

What’s the recovery like?

It takes two or three days to heal, where patients may incur some redness, bruising, and numbness.

We’re hoping to see Kybella be available later in the summer and can’t wait to see the amazing results first-hand!
