Kybella is an injectable that is used to treat submental fullness. It is formulated with deoxycholic acid. Kybella breaks down the fat where it is injected and allows the body to gradually flush it out through the lymphatic system. This eliminates the need for patients to see a plastic surgeon for expensive and invasive procedures.
Kybella is completely safe. There are a few possible side effects, such as swelling and discomfort at the injection site, but these are short-term, lasting just a few days at most.
Anyone who has extra fat on the jowl and chin area may be considered an appropriate candidate for treatment. It is best to schedule a consultation with the team at the Center for Dermatology and Dermatologic Surgery to determine if this treatment is best for you.
First, patients book a consultation appointment with a Board-certified dermatologist, Dr. Cheryl Burgess. She evaluates the health of the patient and determines if this treatment is best for their specific desires. She ensures patients have a realistic expectation of the procedure. Patients are then injected with Kybella in the treatment area. Results gradually appear over several weeks.
Dr. Cheryl Burgess welcomes new patients into her practice to discuss the benefits of treatments such as Kybella. Call (202) 955-5757 today to schedule an appointment at the Annapolis office located at 167-W Jennifer Road.
