Self-Conscious About Your Neck?

Are you self-conscious about the puffiness under your chin? Some refer to that area of fatty tissue as their “turkey neck.”

Introducing KYBELLA the first non-surgical treatment for double chin. Dr. Michael Eidelman, Medical Director for Chelsea Skin & Laser, now offers treatments with KYBELLA. KYBELLA is a non-surgical, non-invasive treatment with little to no down time allowing Dr. Eidelman to customize the treatment to your needs and sculpt the area under the chin for a less pronounced, more youthful profile.

KYBELLA™  is a deoxycholic acid, a naturally produced chemical in the body that helps absorb fat, administered by injection for improvement in the appearance of moderate to severe fullness associated with submental fat under the chin in adults, also called “double chin.”

The product is delivered to the area of fat under the chin through a series of specifically placed injections with a fine sterile needle. When injected into the fat pads below the chin, it destroys the fat cells which are then reabsorbed into the body. An added benefit is that in many cases there is a skin tightening effect that compliments the diminishing of fat deposits without leaving loose skin.

Once assessed as a good candidate for KYBELLA, two to four treatments about six weeks apart have proven to be most effective and results have shown to be permanent. The most commonly reported side effects were bruising, pain and swelling which usually resolved themselves within 1-2 weeks.

Dr. Eidelman has been chosen by the makers of Kybella as one of their physician trainers for this exciting and effective new product. It is important that only a trained, experienced and skilled physician perform this treatment as the product does not only target fat cells. As noted by the FDA, it will also compromise skin cells if inadvertently injected into the skin.

The treatment has shown to be equally effective for both our male and female patients who have excess under-chin fatty deposits without sagging skin. Kybella now available at Chelsea Skin & Laser, your go-to office for expert, individualized care with natural-looking results.
