Kybella Injections in New York City
Maybe that extra fullness beneath your chin is something you’ve had your whole life, something that developed over the years, or something you noticed recently. This may be a condition called submental fullness, or “double chin.”Submental fullness can be caused by weight gain, genetics, or aging. If you’re bothered, you’re not alone. 1 in 4 adults surveyed online was bothered by their double chin. Diet and exercise alone may not help.
At Laser & Mohs Dermatology of New York, we have a solution for you: KYBELLA® Cosmetic Treatments. KYBELLA® is an FDA-approved injectable treatment that permanently destroys fat cells when injected under the chin for an improved profile. Multiple injections are given under the chin per treatment. Typically, 3 to 6 treatments are required and are given at least one month apart.
