Hawaii Medical Skin Care is excited to be the FIRST place in Hawaii to offer the brand-new FDA-approved Kybella treatment.
Kybella is a highly tested and groundbreaking, new non-invasive treatment for double chins and submental fat. This is a great addition to our well known and extremely popular laser procedure for neck tightening with PrecisionTx, which also melts the fat and quickly removes it. Now you have a choice between our surgical, laser assisted procedure or the simple series of Kybella injections! This is expected to become very popular, like Botox injections already have.
Kybella is formulated with deoxycholic acid, the same substance our bodies utilize to melt our dietary fat and works by breaking down the targeted submental fat cells under the chin. The fat cells are targeted and destroyed, then naturally eliminated by the body. Kybella has been in development for eight years, and has undergone 19 clinical trials involving over 2600 patients. It is now FDA-approved for reducing fat underneath the chin!
A Kybella treatment can take as little as five minutes. A series of injections are placed in a pattern on the areas under the chin that need treatment. Following a Kybella treatment, patients may experience temporary bruising, swelling, or numbness; however, these side effects are short-lived and patients do not even need to wear a bandage out of the office!
Many men and women have double chins that they would like to get rid of. Double chins can occur even if a person is not otherwise overweight, and tend to make a person seem heavier than they really are. Reducing fat in this location makes people appear much better, like they have lost weight throughout their bodies. There are no targeted exercises to get rid of a double chin, and if it hasn’t gone away after a lifestyle or diet change, chances are it’s not going to. This body area often contains genetically stubborn fat. If you have a double chin, Kybella could be great for you!
Kybella is a good option for men and women who have excess submental fat causing a double chin. However, if a person is suffering from loose, sagging skin under the chin, laser-assisted fat-melting with our Precision Tx laser may be the best choice for you. Kybella targets fat cells, not loose skin. If you have sagging skin under your chin you’d like to be rid of, PrecisionTx is our laser procedure that melts fat, removes it immediately and tightens skin in a single, comfortable session. Talk to our expert cosmetic surgeon, Michael McGriff, MD, at Hawaii Medical Skin Care to find out if you are a candidate for Kybella!
If you have excess fat under your chin that you’d like to get rid of in a non-invasive way, don’t hesitate to contact Dr. McGriff at Hawaii Medical Skin Care to find out more about this brand-new FDA-approved treatment and to schedule your consultation! Just call 808-226-3165 today.
