Top 500 Kybella Provider
Krauss Dermatology has been named Top 500 volume injector of Kybella.
Kybella ™ is the first and only FDA approved injectable drug that contours and improves the appearance of submental fullness or “double chin.” Submental fullness can be genetic, or can occur from aging or weight gain. Both men and women can receive treatment with this revolutionary new product.
This revolutionary new treatment dissolves the fat and fat cells resistant to diet and exercise in the area under the chin. 2 to 4 treatments are necessary to see results and up to 6 treatments may be administered. The improvement in the submental area is very long lasting and re-treatment is not expected.Over 1600 patients were treated with Kybella™ in clinical trials. 79% went from dissatisfied with their neck and submental area, to satisfied with their appearance without surgery or scarring.
Krauss Dermatology was chosen by Kythera, the manufacturer of Kybella™, to be one of a handful of physician training centers in Massachusetts. We are now treating patients in our office with this exciting new product. See detailed information about the procedure below.
What is Kybella ™Kybella ™ is a specialized injectable treatment designed to remove fat around the chin. Instead of using fat removal procedures like liposuction, your medical provider can expertly inject the treatment solution into the fat with precision, and melt it away over time.
How it Works
The active ingredient in Kybella ™ is deoxycholic acid, which is naturally present in the human body and plays an important role in managing fats. However, when used in Kybella™, this acid works to safely break down the membranes of fat cells. As the fat cells are destroyed, the body’s natural processes remove them from the treatment area. Because Kybella destroys fat cells, the results are virtually permanent.
