Dr. Ava Shamban and Dr. Soheil Simzar in Los Angeles are excited to bring the brand-new Kybella treatment from Kythera Pharmaceuticals to their patients suffering from double chins. Kybella is a recently FDA approved injectable treatment that non-invasively contours the chin area. It is the first non-invasive treatment for the chin area to be FDA approved! Previously, the only ways to reduce or eliminate fat from under the chin were through liposuction or surgery. Kybella treatment is great news for patients in Beverly Hills who want to reduce their double chins without needing anesthesia or a long recovery time.

If you are suffering from excess fat underneath the chin, the Kybella procedure might be a good option for you. To learn more about double chin treatment and to schedule your consultation at Ava MD in Los Angeles, just call 310-843-9915 (Beverly Hills) or 310-828-2282 (Santa Monica)!

About Kybella Treatment

The Kybella procedure is the first and only FDA approved injectable treatment for chin fat. It works by using deoxycholic acid, which is a naturally occurring substance in the body that can help eliminate fat. These fat cells are then naturally absorbed and eliminated by the body. Kybella treatment is FDA approved for use on submental fat cells underneath the chin, and has shown clear results in reducing the appearance of double chins and contouring the chin area.

Double chins affect a large portion of the population, and can happen even if a person is not significantly overweight. The fat underneath the chin can be difficult to get rid of, and sometimes does not respond to diet and exercise. There are no targeted exercises that can eliminate a double chin, and if it hasn’t gone away after a lifestyle change, there’s not much a person can do. Kybella treatment can help to eliminate these stubborn double chins in a quick and painless procedure that requires little downtime. A double chin can make a person look older and heavier than they actually are, and Dr. Ava and her associates in Santa Monica are happy to help patients reclaim their youthful, natural beauty.

Double Chin Treatments

A Kybella treatment usually takes under half an hour, and consists of a series of injections placed strategically in the area under the chin in order to destroy the most amount of fat cells in an even and regular manner. Some people will require multiple sessions for optimal results. It is important to only have Kybella injections done by a board-certified dermatologist with experience using Kybella. The area under the chin is sensitive with various nerve endings, and it is vital that the dermatologist doing the injections knows exactly where to place them for optimal results and to avoid any unwanted side effects.

Normal side effects following a Kybella treatment include swelling, numbness, or bruising around the injection sites. These side effects will disappear on their own within a matter of days, and can be easily managed with over the counter medications and makeup. People are free to resume their daily activities immediately following a double chin treatment, but may wish to take a few days off work to let the treated area completely heal.
