In Scottsdale, Dr. Daniel Shapiro has added the recently FDA approved procedure, Kybella. This is a noninvasive injectable designed to eliminate a double chin. Kybella stands out among the more traditional, surgical choices to sculpt the chin, such as liposuction, for its exceptional benefits with little risk and no downtime.
This product is made from Deoxycholic Acid, a substance that occurs naturally in the body, Kybella targets unwanted fat cells. The injectable dissolves the cell walls, allowing the fat to be safely metabolized and eliminated by the body.
As the fat cells are absorbed by the body, the tissue under the chin will return to a youthful, smooth appearance. Most people will begin to see an improvement in their double chin after one to two treatments. The treated fat cells do not return, making the results from Kybella permanent.
Dr. Shapiro said, "Kybella is a wonderful addition to a noninvasive (regime)." However, some patients may not benefit from the injectable. Dr. Shapiro continues, "Kybella is performed in people that have localized fat and moderate skin tone. Not everyone is a candidate�that is why you need to see someone honest, to make sure you are a great candidate (for Kybella)."
