We’ve got some big new at Pinski Chicago dermatologist… Kybella is coming soon to our offices, and we couldn’t be more excited to start helping our dermatology patients get their chins in shape for autumn.
Sure fall is the time to embrace turtlenecks and scarves, but after you get the Kybella treatment, you won’t want to bury your face beneath layers upon layers. We promise!
What It Is
Kybella is the first and only FDA-approved, nonsurgical treatment proven to contour and improve the appearance of your double chin (or in dermatologist speak: submental fullness).
You will work with your Pinski dermatologist in the Chicago office to customize a Kybella treatment plan that will work right for you.
Results typically appear within 2 to 4 treatments—spaced one month apart—and up to 6 treatments may be administered by your provider.
Common side effects include:
areas of hardness
If any of these symptoms do not subside within a few days after treatment, do not hesitate to contact your Chicago dermatologist.
How It Works
Kybella is made with the active ingredient, deoxycholic acid, which is a naturally occurring molecule in the body that works to break down and absorb dietary fat.
When Kybella is injected into your chin, it will begin to destroy those fat cells. Those cells can then no longer store or accumulate fat, meaning that once your desired look is achieved with Kybella, retreatment is not expected.
Now put away those scarves (well, at least until the snow starts), because you’ve got a gorgeous, youthful face to show off this autumn!
