Don’t let your double chin get you down. Diet and exercise alone may not help. Dr. Joseph Guarino offers Kybella® treatment to patients in Hamilton, NJ. At Derma Cosmedica, Dr. Guarino and his experienced team help patients receive high-quality cosmetic treatments. Kybella, in particular, is a non-surgical treatment that reduces fat in the chin. It eliminates fat cells and ensures that more cells do not accumulate. We recommend that patients receive a consultation prior to treatment to ensure that Kybella is the right option to fit their goals.
Treatment with Kybella
When Kybella is injected into the fat beneath the chin, it permanently destroys fat cells. Your body’s metabolism then processes the fat and clears it from the treatment area. Once the fat cells are gone, you’re left with a noticeable reduction in fullness under the chin.
The injection process takes 15 to 20 minutes in our office. The active ingredient in Kybella is synthetic deoxycholic acid. Deoxycholic acid is a naturally occurring molecule in the body that helps break down fat. After Kybella is injected into the fat of the chin, the fat cells are absorbed over a period of 6 to 12 weeks.
Kybella is a safe cosmetic treatment that can produce permanent results. Each patient is different, so their treatment plan will vary. The number of treatments depends on the needs of the patient. Dr. Guarino will take your history, budget, and current cosmetic goals into account before recommending Kybella.
