Dr. Rhoda Narins now offering non-surgical treatment Kybella to help reduce look of a double chin to New York area patients.

“Our goal is to help keep you looking and feeling your best,” says Dr. Rhoda Narins, “Kybella will allow us to treat patients with stubborn problem areas under the chin with a minimally-invasive yet successful procedure.”

Dr. Rhoda Narins is now offering the newly FDA-approved Kybella injectable to her New York City and Westchester County area patients. Kybella is a non-surgical method to dissolve fat cells and is the first of its kind to be approved for the use of reducing the look of a double chin. Dr. Narins helped conduct two clinical trials for Kybella and has treated many patients with success.

Kybella works by dissolving fat cells and allows plastic surgeons and dermatologists to reshape the chin area without surgery. During the two clinical trials, more than 1,000 patients were treated, with 68.2% seeing successful reduction of the look of their problem area. M.R.I. scans of treated patients also showed that under-chin volume had decreased. Kybella is a cytolytic drug, which when injected into the submental fat area under the chin, dissolves and destroys the fat cells. The key ingredient in Kybella is identical to deoxycholic acid, an acid naturally produced in the body.

“Our goal is to help keep you looking and feeling your best,” says Dr. Rhoda Narins, “Kybella will allow us to treat patients with stubborn problem areas under the chin with a minimally-invasive yet successful procedure.”

Patients may receive up to 50 injections in a single treatment, and up to six single treatments administered no less than one month apart. Side effects of Kybella include numbness, nerve injury in the jaw area that can cause uneven smile, swelling, bruising, and pain at the injection site.

DR. RHODA NARINS, is one of the nation's top dermatologic surgeons, selected by her peers as one of only 12 dermatologists in the United States listed in "Best Doctors in America" under Aesthetic Surgery. Her practice, The Dermatology Surgery & Laser Center, has offices in Manhattan and Westchester County, offering patients a variety of treatments including laser treatments such as CoolSculpting and laser hair removal and fillers such as Voluma XC and Restylane.
