Anne Arundel Dermatology is determined to serve our patients with top of the line care and products. This month, we are happy to offer a new procedure, Kybella, to improve the appearance of any fat resting beneath the chin, also known as “double chin”. The procedure is FDA-approved and uses synthetic deoxycholic acid, a naturally occurring molecule that assists the breakdown and absorption of dietary fat. When deoxycholic acid is injected beneath the chin, it works to destroy fat cells so they are unable to store or accumulate fat.
Most patients may be able to see results in only two to four treatments. And, because the Kybella treatment ensures the fat cells under the chin are destroyed, after the injection they are gone forever! Each procedure lasts approximately 15-20 minutes, which is perfect for patients with busy schedules. To see before and after pictures or learn more about the procedure, click here!
