Nationally prominent dermatologist explains Kybella
Dermatologists such as Dr. Jeanine Downie can now help patients get rid of submental fullness without surgery. By injecting a drug called Kybella that dissolves fat, patients can bid farewell to their “double chins.” Kybella is identical to a substance found in the body called deoxycholic acid, which helps to absorb fats. It works by destroying fat cells. Kybella is becoming a popular alternative to liposuction and surgery. Dr. Downie and our team offer Kybella, among many other injectables, in our New Jersey practice, image Dermatology®.
We recommend scheduling a consultation with Dr. Downie to explore your candidacy for Kybella. During your visit, Dr. Downie will review your medical history, examine your face, and ask you about medications you take. If you are a candidate for treatment, Dr. Downie will tailor a plan to meet your needs.
After your evaluation, we will determine the optimal location for injections. There will be several injections; however, we will ensure the procedure is as comfortable as possible and minimize any side effects. A treatment session lasts less than 30 minutes.
Before approving Kybella, the FDA looked at the results of two U.S. trials that included more than 1,000 people. Dr. Downie was an investigator in clinical trials for the drug. She treated a number of patients during the clinical trial.. Those who received Kybella more often saw less fat under the chin. More than 80 percent of those receiving Kybella said they noticed some improvement in their chin fat, according to the maker of Kybella, Kythera Biopharmaceuticals. Dr. Downie is a registered nationwide trainer of other board certified physicians for Kybella
In addition to improving chin contours, we now offer Kybella to melt the inner thigh fat faster. Both legs can be treated in one hour, and there is no downtime treatments.
