The first and only FDA-approved injectable drug available that contours and improves the appearance of moderate to severe submental fullness, sometimes referred to as a �double chin,� is now available in Center Valley and Lansdale, PA. Submental fullness is a common, yet under-treated aesthetic condition that is often resistant to diet and exercise alone and influenced by several factors, including aging, genetics and weight gain.
�We are excited to be the first aesthetic practice in Lansdale and the the Lehigh Valley and surrounding area to be able to offer Kybella to our patients. I have been trained on the proper technique for administering the treatment for the safety of my patients,� said Dr. Thomas E. Young.
An in-office treatment session with KYBELLA is usually 15-20 minutes. When injected into subcutaneous fat, KYBELLA causes the destruction of fat cells. Once destroyed, those cells cannot store or accumulate fat. After the aesthetic response is achieved with KYBELLA, re-treatment is not expected.
Many patients experience visible results in two to four treatment sessions with this non-surgical procedure, which are spaced at least one month apart. Up to six treatments may be administered.
Side effects include swelling, bruising, pain, numbness, redness and formation of areas of hardness in the treatment area. In clinical trials, the incidence and severity of most side effects decreased with subsequent KYBELLA treatments. KYBELLA can cause serious side effects, including trouble swallowing and nerve injury in the jaw that can cause an uneven smile or facial muscle weakness.
