“Kybella should be applied by a dermatologist who is experienced with injectables. The treatment is only for the area under the chin, it won’t work for any other body part,” explained Dr. Ava

The U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) recently approved a new non-invasive treatment to reduce fat under the chin. Kybella is similar to deoxycholic acid, which occurs naturally in the body and helps absorb and breakdown fat cells. Previously, plastic surgery and liposuction were the main options to treat this area of the body. These are invasive procedures and very expensive for most people. Now with Kybella, there is an easier and non-invasive way to treat double chin fat. Dr. Ava Shamban is a board-certified dermatologist who took part in the FDA clinical trials, which has given her years of experience and insight into the Kybella treatment process.

“Kybella is the first and only approved non-surgical treatment for this condition,” said Dr. Ava Shamban. “Most people are concerned about the appearance of their double chin. That is one of the main reasons why I’m eager to provide Kybella in my office. I want my patients to look and feel happy about themselves. Now with Kybella, there is a easier and a non-invasive way to achieve the results they are looking for.”

Kybella is injected into the fat tissue under the chin area. Patients receive about 50 injections per treatment, with up to six treatments completed about a month apart. The procedure takes about five minutes for most patients. It takes several days to heal and there are no bandages required after the injections.

“This is a simple procedure that takes very little time out of someone’s day,“ explained Dr. Shamban. “There is minimal discomfort from the injections and the results are amazing. Most patients will be able to perform their daily activities afterwards.”

The side effects are minimal. They include soreness, redness, numbness and swelling in the treatment area. Few of the 2,600 patients that participated in the clinical study had these small side affects. Dr. Ava Shamban is an experienced dermatologist that will apply the injections correctly to help prevent any of these from occurring.

“Kybella should be applied by a dermatologist who is experienced with injectables. The treatment is only for the area under the chin, it won’t work for any other body part,” explained Dr. Ava. "I want people to feel comfortable in their own skin and Kybella is going to help with that."
