Get the Double Chin Injection Everyone is Raving About

The Kybella double chin injection was approved by the FDA in mid-2015 as an injectable to eliminate double chin, a cosmetic complaint often resistant to diet and exercise. Unlike liposuction, the standard treatment for a double chin, Kybella offers permanent results through destruction of fat cells through a series of non-surgical injections. Once these fat cells are gone, they are gone for good, providing long-term results for patients.

How Does Kybella Work?

Kybella Before and After Los Angeles

The active ingredient in this revolutionary new double chin injection is deoxycholic acid, a bile acid that is produced naturally by the body to break down fat. When Kybella is injected into the chin and neck area, the fat cells are destroyed and naturally absorbed by the body. With the fat cells gone, no maintenance is necessary to prevent the double chin from returning. You can count on keeping a youthfully toned chin and neck area after you’ve completed a series of treatments with Kybella under the care of a medically licensed aesthetic injection specialist.

What Does the new Kybella Double Chin Injection Involve?

During a Kybella session, one of our licensed medical aesthetic professionals will mark the area to be treated before making a dozen or more injections there. In many cases, a session takes less than 15 minutes to complete. Patients typically have at least three and up to six Kybella treatments, spaced a one month apart, to fully eliminate double chin fat . Like other injectables, Kybella can cause temporary swelling, bruising and numbness in the treatment area and subside within a few days.

Who Is a Candidate for the Kybella Double Chin Injection?

The Kybella double chin injection can be beneficial for patients who have extra fat but normal skin elasticity in the chin and neck area. Unfortunately, this form of double chin removal will not work as a standalone treatment for patients whose chin problems are caused by excessive skin. If you are considering Kybella, you should inform our licensed medical aesthetic providers if you are currently or soon to be pregnant, breastfeeding or planning to seek face or neck surgery, or if you have bleeding problems or trouble swallowing. If you are taking any vitamins, herbal supplements or medications, such as anti-clotting drugs, you should also mention those to our certified aesthetic professionals during your consultation. Our Nurse Practitioner or Physician Assistant will request a full medical history to ensure you do not have any pre-existing conditions that would prevent the safe administration of Kybella.

Injectables are convenient, minimally invasive alternatives to plastic surgery for many cosmetic complaints. With Kybella now available, a double chin injection has been added to this exciting list of options available in our Beverly Hills medical spa.

New protocols for office visits View Update

New protocols for office visits

May 12th, 2020

In light of the COVID-19 pandemic we have instituted many changes to your normal office visit. These changes have been introduced to protect everyone’s health and safety during your visit. All of our staff have been tested for COVID-19 and are negative. They are being monitored daily as well and will be practicing safety guidelines.

  1. If you are sick, do not come to the office. Call our front desk and we will reschedule your appointment promptly once you’re healthy again.
  2. Please wear a mask to your appointment.
  3. Do not bring someone else with you to your appointment. They will not be able to enter the office and wait for you. The only exceptions are for those who require medical assistance or translation assistance. Additionally, please do not bring any pets to the office with you.
  4. The day before your appointment, as in the past, you will be called to confirm your appointment. During that call you will be asked if you have any symptoms like fever, chills, muscle aches, cough, sore throat, shortness of breath, loss of smell or taste. You will also be asked if you have been recently exposed to COVID-19 or have been traveling on a commercial airplane within the last 2 weeks.
  5. When you arrive for your appointment, please call the office from your car. A staff member will either tell you to come up to the office at that time or will ask you to wait in your car until they text you to come up. Before entering the front door of the office, you will be met by a staff member who will take your temperature with a no-touch forehead thermometer to be sure you don’t have a fever. They will again ask you if you have any symptoms of COVID-19. You will be given a mask if you don’t have one, as well as hand sanitizer since you touched the doorknob to enter the office. We will stagger appointments so that on the day of your treatment, you will not interact with any other patients.
  6. You will be taken directly to an exam room which has been cleaned and disinfected just prior to your arrival. There are also air filtration machines installed in each exam room which sterilize the air.
  7. Our medical assistants, who will be wearing N95 masks and protective eye shields, will take your history and prepare you for your visit. You will be asked to sign a new COVID-19 consent form in addition to any of the usual consent forms you may be used to.
  8. After your treatment, you will check out while in the exam room and any products you purchase will be brought to you. If you give us your credit card information the day before your appointment, we can handle the checkout without physically touching your card.
  9. Please try to make your follow up appointments during your office visit. With new scheduling changes and staggered appointments, last minute appointments may be difficult to schedule.
