Many patients come to Advanced Dermatology looking for safe, nonsurgical treatment options that will help them feel like a more refreshed and confident version of themselves. One common concern that both men and women wish to address is submental fullness, often referred to as a double chin. Submental fullness can be caused by aging, weight gain, or even simple genetics. This area can also be one of the most frustrating to treat without help from your physician because it is often resistant to traditional exercise and nutrition.
This is why we offer Kybella injections at our Katy, League City, Pearland, and Sugar Land, TX locations. Approved by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA), Kybella is the first nonsurgical treatment for submental fat. The active ingredient in Kybella is a synthetic version of deoxycholic acid (DA) that acts like the natural DA in your body to break down and absorb fat. Once it is injected under the chin, you may see a noticeable new contour to your facial appearance. When the fat is destroyed, the cells cannot return so you are able to enjoy your new slim profile and strong jawline for years to come. Book a consultation to get started with Kybella injections at any of our four locations in the Greater Houston, TX area.
"Excellent customer service and medical services. I called today to get an appointment and I book my appointment for today .When an hour later, I got there, they told me that my appointment was booked for tomorrow. I work every day except Monday. So I told the reception that I am not able to make it tomorrow. She fitted me to today's schedule, but an hour later. Then I had consultation which she was very professional and patiently explained all my options. At the end , I decided to have my service. The best part was meeting Mrs. Piipar Rivera.Not only, she was beautiful, she was so sweet and kind. At the moment that she felt that I may not feel ok, she went out and grab another assistant to comfort me. Thank you all."- I.K. / Google / Oct 01, 2019

"Since day one, Dr. Egesi and the staff have been extraordinary. I honestly never take the time to make reviews for any company, organization or business but I really wanted everyone to know how wonderful this clinic is. I highly recommend Dr. Egesi, she is patient, understanding and kind! EVERY time she comes into the room, Dr. Egesi has a smile on and is always ready to listen to your concerns. The staff is always professional and very nice. It’s very refreshing to be treated so well by a doctor and the staff.. it rare these days. If it wasn’t for Dr. Egesi and her staff, my cystic acne wouldn’t have gone away. I’m so thankful!"- I.V. / Google / Sep 25, 2019
The best patients for Kybella injections have excess fat in the upper neck (submental area) that causes a double chin or unwanted fullness. This injection treats stubborn pockets of fat that cannot be reduced with normal weight loss methods due to genetics, aging, or other conditions. If you are at a healthy weight, but diet and exercise have not helped to reduce the fat in your upper neck, Kybella may be the right treatment for you. While Kybella can treat small to moderate amounts of fat in the submental area, larger amounts of fat may require surgical liposuction.
Kybella is performed during an in-office appointment in the privacy of a treatment room. We will apply a numbing agent to the treatment area under your chin (if requested) after the skin has been cleansed for injections. The procedure takes about 15 – 20 minutes, which includes several Kybella injections in the chin area. Some patients may only need one treatment to reach their goal while others may need multiple treatments spaced 3 – 4 weeks apart at Advanced Dermatology.
What to Expect
Kybella doesn't require anesthesia so you are able to leave the office as soon as you feel comfortable to resume your normal activities. You may have temporary swelling, numbness, or bruising under your chin, but this should not last longer than a few days. Call Advanced Dermatology immediately if you are experiencing any unusual side effects, such as facial muscle weakness, difficulty swallowing, or if your smile is uneven. While the fat cells that are destroyed do not return, the remaining cells can become larger so you should maintain a steady weight after your Kybella injections to prevent new pockets of fat from forming. Optimal results following this treatment leave your neck looking tighter and slimmer and your profile will be more defined.
