KYBELLA® is the only injectable treatment that is approved by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) to eliminate excess fat under the chin. KYBELLA® is composed of deoxycholic acid, a substance that occurs naturally in the body and aids in the breakdown and absorption of dietary fat. After KYBELLA® is injected into the submental fat, it destroys fat cells so that this area is no longer able to store or accumulate fat. If you have a “double chin” our team of medical professionals can use KYBELLA® to reduce submental fullness and help you achieve a more sculpted, youthful profile.
"I went to Bay Area Dermatology because a few of the girls in my office recommend it. I had developed a really bad case of melasma on my cheeks and upper lip. When I made an appointment they had asked me if I had a preference as to who I wanted to see. I told the receptionist that I had Asian skin so if I could get someone that is familiar with treating common Asian skin issues that would be fantastic. I was scheduled an appointment with Dr. Hui.At my first meet with Dr. Hui she confirmed that I did indeed have melasma and that my next step was to start getting chemical peels 4-6 weeks apart. Wow. Holy smokes! So far I've received 3 chemical peels and the melasma is almost gone. It's at the point where I am able to cover it up with just foundation. Yippee! At my most recent appointment I received my first laser treatment with Mary. I had a 1pm appointment and was seen quickly to start the numbing process. I am one of those people that benifit from the extra time with the numbing cream so I appreciate that the ladies got me started immediately. I was so numb that I barely felt a thing. Definitely one of the easiest laser procedures I have ever done."- J.C. / Yelp / Dec 02, 2017
"I have been suffering acne for many years. I have visited many dermatologists and tried all types of treatments without having any positive results. Dr. Hui has completely changed my skin. In a few months my acne has dissapeared and the redness caused by it as well! I could have never imagined better results. She is a great professional. After losing all hope that anything would ever work, now I am confident again about my skin. This is the best office you could ever go to."- M.D. / Yelp / Apr 16, 2018

"My experience at Bay Area Cosmetic Dermatology has truly been exceptional. Having very fair skin, sun damage and redness have been constants for most of my life. After laser treatments with Garrett Forrest, my skin looks better than I thought possible. She was empathetic and did a great job articulating what practices to add to my daily routine to keep my [now perfect] skin. Highly recommend!"- R.P. / Yelp / Mar 09, 2018
KYBELLA® is a safe, nonsurgical option for reducing submental fullness and fat. If you are bothered by a “double chin,” KYBELLA® may be a great option for you.
WHAT TO EXPECT
Prior to your KYBELLA® treatment, one of our skilled providers will consult to determine how many vials will be used for your treatment. The price of the treatment varies depending on how much KYBELLA® is used and the number of treatments necessary to see results. You may need anywhere from one to six treatments, spaced one month apart to achieve optimum results. To make the procedure more comfortable we offer several options for anesthesia including: topical numbing cream, lidocaine injections, and/or topical cold spray. The provider will map out the area to be injected and then administer KYBELLA® injections into the submental fat. Immediately following injection, you may experience a temporary cramping sensation in the treatment area.
Following your KYBELLA® treatment you may experience mild to moderate swelling, redness, and numbness in the injection site. Some patients also experience bruising that lasts up to two weeks. Results develop over eight weeks following the treatment. Based on your treatment goals and the amount of the fat under your chin, you may choose to treat again to achieve the best results.
