Kybella offers facial contouring solutions to Centreville, VA, patients

For many years the only way to address extra fat on the chin, the infamous double chin, was with surgery, anesthesia, and incisions. However, now we can help patients get a defined, chiseled chin with Kybella, an injectable solution that has been newly approved by the FDA to treat submental fat. Kybella works by dissolving the stubborn fat housed under the chin that simply can’t be addressed with weight loss, creams, or toners. In clinical trials approximately 70 percent of patients noted both physical and emotional improvement following their treatments.

Kybella is made from a substance that’s found in the body called deoxycholic acid. When injected into fat cells it destroys them and leaves the skin on the face tighter and the jawline more defined. The injection only takes a few moments and can be done in our office. However, it may take up to six treatments over the course of six months, with 12 to 20 injections per visit. While it may sound like a lot of needles and pricking, we assure our patients that only a teaspoon of the substance is all it takes to see a noticeable difference.

Unlike other injectable treatments which only deliver results in a few days but those same results only last for up to six months, Kybella has a more gradual delivery but lasts for several years. The side effects of Kybella are similar to those of other injectable solutions. Patients should expect to see some inflammation and bruising, but it only lasts for a few days.

If you want to improve your appearance and get rid of the double chin effect forever, but don’t want to undergo surgery and the extended recovery time, call us today. With our team, we deliver the results you want in a kind and caring manner. Dermatology Associates of Northern Virginia works with you to deliver subtle and natural results in a manner that best fits your lifestyle, your budget, and your timeline. Kybella can improve your appearance and give you the confidence you want and deserve.

Dr. Neeraja C. Mattay Reviewed by Andy. K.

I recently had an appointment at the Sterling office. Booking the appointment over the phone was easy and fast. Upon arrival, I found the front desk staff to be pleasant and efficient. My wait time was minimal in the waiting room and well as in the back room, which is always a nice thing with any doctor's office. When I did meet with the doctor, we discussed my issues and overall felt like all my questions and concerns were thoroughly answered before I left. No complaints, and will definitely be coming back if need be and recommending this practice to my family and friends.
