Kybella is FDA approved for patients in Thousand Oaks to eliminate the fat cells that make double chin.
Aging is inevitable. Looking your age doesn’t have to be. Over time, gravity naturally takes its course and a person may start to notice some problem areas. One of the areas where people first begin to show age or a carry a little extra weight is just beneath the chin; a condition that often gets referred to as a “double chin”. The FDA has approved Kybella as a nonsurgical treatment to target the fat in this area for a slimmer appearance.
“I just wanted to thank you for the care and personal attention that you show your patients. I have been to numerous dermatologists and usually felt worse leaving their offices than when I came in. However, coming into your office, the staff is always friendly and you are great, not only for being very knowledgeable but also for showing great care and concern, which I really appreciate, so thank you!.” – Julianna W.
This latest injectable treatment is offered as an outpatient procedure to patients in and around Thousand Oaks by Dr. Peterson Pierre of Pierre Skin Care Institute, one of the first practices in the area to offer it. To achieve desired results, treatment plans range from two to six sessions occurring at minimum one-month intervals. An individual consultation with Dr. Pierre will allow him to determine the necessary number of appointments.
Kybella’s active ingredient is a molecule that also occurs naturally in the body, called deoxycholic acid. Its purpose is to break down and absorb dietary fat in the body. When injected into the fatty area under the chin, the active ingredient destroys the cell membrane of undesirable fat cells. This prevents treated cells from ever being able to hold fat again. It is a particularly desirable therapy because, once the course of treatment is completed, retreatment is normally not required.
Side effects sometimes experienced are what might reasonably be expected for this type of treatment; such as bruising, discomfort, redness, or swelling. Patients are advised to visit Dr. Pierre for this type of treatment; it should only be provided by a licensed professional. Patients are reminded that Kybella is only approved for moderate to severe fat in this designated area under the chin and no other uses have been approved nor should be attempted. Pierre Skin Care Institute delivers qualified and experienced care that you can trust.
If you’ve reached the point where you’ve had enough of the “double chin,” we recommend making an appointment to see if Kybella is right for you. This innovative treatment provides significant improvement without the recovery and invasiveness that would be required with surgery. Allow us the opportunity to deliver results for you that are beautiful yet natural.
