Banish your double chin with a new nonsurgical treatment called Kybella®. At ZO Skin Centre®, we know that being overweight is not necessarily always a factor in submental fat. Under the chin is a tricky spot for targeted definition even at a healthy weight with proper diet, and consistent exercise. Many people inherit this trait but do not want to have a surgical procedure like liposuction. Our highly skilled dermatologists and nurse injectors can inject Kybella® (deoxycholic acid) into your stubborn fat (in the chin area only), to cause the fat cells to shrink and be processed through your body's natural waste elimination process. You will be able to identify your progress in the weeks to come as the fat cells fade. What you lose in submental fat, you will gain in confidence. Want to learn more and see if you qualify? If you are 18-years-of-age or older, call or visit us in our Beverly Hills, CA location to schedule a private consultation.
"I have been wanting to get Kybella for my double chin for a while now but I have been holding off because I heard it can be painful and you can swell a lot. My friend recommended me to go see Dr. Sameer Bashey since she has had such a great experience with him and she is pretty picky. I finally decided to give it a shot, and I'm so glad that I did! I'm not into posting reviews but I felt that everyone should know about how amazing Dr. Bashey is! He answered all my questions and didn't rush me. He was very gentle, and honestly it didn't hurt at all. I didn't swell much, and was able to go out the next day. It's been 4 weeks since my 1st treatment and I already notice a big difference! I love my results so far, and I highly recommend Dr. Bashey!"- M.E. / Google / Oct 29, 2019
You may be considered to be a candidate for Kybella® injections if you meet these stipulations:
- You are 18-years-of-age or older.
- You have great skin elasticity in your neck area.
- You are under the age of 40 unless do not have loose skin on your neck or jowling.
- You are not currently pregnant or breastfeeding.
- You have moderate-to-severe submental fat that will not go away regardless of diet and exercise.
- You have infection-free skin on the chin and neck.
- You are willing to try a nonsurgical treatment for your "double chin" instead of invasive surgery or surgery is not an option for you.
- You have medical conditions that make it hard to swallow, blood clotting disorders, or allergies to any ingredient in the medication.
Of course, we will go over a thorough list of medical questions, perform a physical examination of the treatment area, and go over the details of your personalized Kybella® treatment plan.
What to expect
During your treatment session, you will be in one of our minor procedure rooms to be prepared for your injections. Our medical team will gently ready your chin area. The area will be cleansed. If the pain is a concern, we can administer a numbing gel to your skin before the needle is inserted. We will apply a chin grid just like a temporary tattoo. This will allow your injector to give you precise injections on your skin. Using a fine needle, the Kybella® will be injected right under the skin at each dot of the grid. Once all of the dots have been injected, we will provide you with an ice pack to help with the swelling and slight burning sensation you will feel under your skin. If you feel the after burn, please know that is the deoxycholic acid working on your fat cells. This side effect should resolve itself within the day of treatment. You will have swelling and redness in the area, and you should use an ice pack to soothe until the sensations go away. Most of our Kybella® patients need 3 – 5 treatment sessions spread out a month apart. This can be determined by the amount of submental fat treated with Kybella® or how fast your body reacts to the drug.
