Kybella TampaIn recent years, we have seen a number of advances in the area of aesthetic medicine. Through minimally invasive procedures, it has become possible to reduce wrinkles on every part of the face, lift the brows, plump the cheeks, and more. We are proud to have the innovative Kybella® treatment in our office! This injectable is unlike BOTOX® or fillers. It is designed to help men and women achieve a more sculpted jaw line and chin by strategically dissolving submental fat – the double chin.
What is Kybella®?
Kybella® treatments are conducted in our office after a thorough consultation and discussion of what to expect. Injections are given with a fine needle in an appointment that lasts only about twenty minutes. Though multiple injections are performed, only a small amount (about a teaspoon) of deoxycholic acid is placed into submental tissue during each session. Optimal results are achieved in two to six sessions, which we schedule a month apart. Post-treatment, patients may experience slight bruising and swelling that last a few days.
While the treatment process is similar to BOTOX® and dermal fillers, Kybella® differs in the time it takes to see results. This solution does not add anything to the skin nor does it take away, at least not immediately. The acid we inject works over time to break up fatty deposits. While it may take four to six weeks to see the results you want, the outcome of Kybella® treatment can last for years without the touch-ups that are necessary with other injectable treatments.
Age brings a number of positive experiences and specific advantages. At the same time, most people would like to minimize the effects that age has on the skin and the body. Dr. Lombardi and his experienced staff offer men and women from Tampa and surrounding areas the unique benefit of non-surgical "liposuction" for the double chin.
