Our blog series this month is entitled “What Services Do You Offer?” We have longtime and new patients who do not know what we offer, so we’d like to take this opportunity to introduce you to treatments and procedures that we have here at Beverly Dermatology & Laser Center.
KybellaTM is one of our newest cosmetic procedures as it was FDA approved and released within the past few years (but don’t worry, it has been in clinical trials for years prior to FDA approval). This innovative treatment targets the “double chin” which has been difficult to treat without plastic surgery.
For this procedure, a deoxycholic acid solution is injected into the submental area (= double chin area). This molecule, which naturally occurs in the human body, then targets the unwanted fat cells & permanently destroys them, making the area slimmer and creating a more youthful profile. The destroyed fat cells are naturally excreted from the body through the lymphatic system (similar to Vanquish).
While most patients see results with one treatment, multiple treatments are typically required depending on the size and amount of fat of the area being treated. Most patients only need 2-4 treatments, while a few may need up to 6 treatments.
