Kybella Treatment in New York City
Banish ‘Double Chin’
KYBELLA® is the first and only FDA-approved injectable used to contour the appearance of fat below the chin (submental fat). This common but undertreated condition, often called ‘double chin,’ can add the appearance of weight and age to the face. Until recently, surgical options were the only way to address pockets of fat in this region.
Dr. Akhavan, our founding New York dermatologist, offers KYBELLA® is the most innovative way to permanently remove submental fat. Its active ingredient is deoxycholic acid, a naturally-occurring molecule in the body that aids in the breakdown and absorption of fat. When used to treat submental fat, KYBELLA® destroys fat cells, creating a smoother and more beautifully contoured profile.
