Kybella® at DermWellesley
What is Kybella?
Kybella is a non-surgical injectable treatment designed to treat stubborn submental fat (double chin) in both men and women. This bulge of fat often forms in that location as we age.
Kybella is composed of a synthetic form of deoxycholic acid. This substance is found naturally in the body, where it serves to break up dietary fats. When it comes in contact with fat cells, it breaks down the cell membranes, leading to cell death and gradual natural removal by the body.
What Is the Treatment Process Like?
What to Expect During Your Kybella Treatment
After Your Kybella Treatment
Kybella does not require a great deal of recovery time or downtime, and patients can typically return to work and their daily activities around 24 hours after the treatment session. Swelling and bruising will be present in the injection areas but will gradually subside.
The results of a Kybella treatment will appear gradually as the destroyed fat cells are filtered out of the body. Patients usually start to notice results after two to four treatment sessions.
Real Patient Testimonials
The entire experience was better than I could have ever anticipated.
After three years of not being able to read for any length of time due to droopy eyelids, I saw Dr Callahan. I can’t thank her enough for giving me back such a precious gift. The procedure and recovery were painless. The entire experience was better than I could have ever anticipated. I am more than thrilled with the results.
Dr. Yasuda is very personable and caring.
She takes an interest in her patients as a whole, not focusing only on their dermatological needs. She explains treatments before she begins them and describes her plan of care at each visit. Her exams are thorough, instilling a sense of confidence in her care.
Had my 1st skin check. Dr. Berg was very thorough.
I had a little something on my leg, so after talking with me about it she froze it and will recheck in 8 weeks. She along with the front desk and intake staff were very welcoming, professional and personable. The office and patient rooms are very clean.
Wow, what a wonderful experience!!
Had a filler/Dysport session with Dr. Goldminz today! Wow, what a wonderful experience!! Not only do I absolutely love my results but she was kind and professional yet unbelievably calming and patient! She spent time explaining everything and really knows her stuff!! Thank you, Thank you, I’m looking forward to my next visit. I highly recommend!
Everyone here is so wonderful.
I first went to see Barb for a full skin check and to discuss melasma treatments. I started with a few Aerolase treatments with Julie that didn’t do much, no fault of hers, just my skin didn’t respond which is a known possibility, so decided to try Fraxel and WOW. I am so glad I did. I was a bit nervous at first but Julie was so patient and kept it real with me on my expectations. She is so great at what she does. I am so pleased with my results and will continue as a patient here for all my skincare. Don’t hesitate on the Fraxel, it’s incredible!!
