Dr. Gregory Albert of The Optimization Centre offers his Del Rey patients the latest techniques in face procedures, like Kybella chin augmentation.
Kybella is a breakthrough non-surgical treatment that can significantly reduce the appearance of a double chin with a series of injections. It uses Deoxycholic acid, a naturally occurring molecule in the body, to aid in the breakdown and absorption of dietary fat. Kybella destroys fat cells that can no longer store or accumulate fat so further treatment is not expected once you reach your desired goal.
Everyone is different and the number of treatments will vary from person to person. After treatment you will likely have some swelling, bruising and/or numbness under your chin that resolve over a week or two.
A well-defined chin and jawline is one of the most desirable facial features for men and women. In the past, someone with a double chin caused by stubborn fat needed liposuction to reduce it. That has changed with the FDA approval of Kybella.
