Ventura County Dermatology Center Offers New Way to Combat Double Chin

Share Article

Coastal Dermatology has recently added Kybella cosmetic treatments to its services, offering clients a new treatment for unwanted chin fat.

Coastal Dermatology, a leading dermatology practice in Ventura County, now offers Kybella cosmetic treatments at its practice in Camarillo. Kybella is the first and only FDA-approved treatment of its kind, designed to combat unwanted chin fat through a quick, nonsurgical, in-office procedure. 

For patients deemed good candidates for Kybella treatments, the product gets injected into the skin through several tiny injections in a procedure that takes about 30 minutes total. Right away, Kybella begins to dissolve fat. To maximize comfort during treatments, patients should take 800mg of ibuprofen an hour beforehand; anesthetic cream is also used. After the procedure, patients may wear a chin strap with an ice pack for a few days to reduce swelling. Two to four treatments are typically required to yield the best results, and permanent results are evident in six weeks.

Kybella is the latest in a wide variety of cosmetic procedures offered by Coastal Dermatology to improve the effects of aging and minimize fine lines and wrinkles. Other treatments include Botox®, Dysportâ„¢, Juvederm, Voluma, Restylane Silk, Radiesse, Ultherapy, Coolsculpting, Varilite, IPL (photorejuvenation), Sclerotherapy, Laser skin resurfacing and Laser hair removal. Treatments at Coastal Dermatology are administered by care providers Ross Kaplan, MD, April Farrell, MD, and/or Julie McCardell, FNP.
