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 love Dr. Austin. Agree with many other reviewers that she has a magic touch and makes me look younger and more beautiful. Always on time, and consistently great work!"- L.R. / Yelp / Jan 24, 2019
"Mother of the Brides - Both my daughters got married within two years of each other desperate to look my best I made an appointment with Dr.Kathleen Welsh. I had sculptura, juvederm and Botox ..basically the works! Dr. Welsh made me look and feel in my 40’s while in my 60’s. She is the Best!"- S. / RealSelf / Jan 21, 2019
"I've been treated with every rosecea treatment existing and evolving for a period of over thirty years. Anyone with this condition knows how persistent and difficult it can be to treat so I did a yelp search using the key word "rosacea" in hopes of finding yet another approach to managing - yelp.com/biz/andrea-hui-…. My search showed Dr. Andrea Hui Huston as having the highest number of positive reviews for rosacea treatment so that is why I chose her and why I am now writing this review. After only a few months of treatment, the changes in my skin have been remarkable. Not only has the red hue of my face diminished but the texture, smoothness and pore size has improved quite noticeably. In my case, Dr. Austin uses a combination of applications including a variety of topicals. I've always been distrustful of ointments and such that supposedly improve rosacea because they've never worked in the past but for me, these have been incredibly effective. The severity of flushing I've always had a problem with has reduced dramatically also which I believe in part is the result of an oral medication she prescribed. I am beyond pleased with the effectiveness of treatment I've received from Dr. Hui Austin. It's my hope that this review may help others find remedy to their problematic dermatological concerns."- J.B. / Yelp / Jan 02, 2019
"Dr. Austin is the. best. I was really struggling with dark under eye circles and cystic acne on my cheeks. Both are gone and I couldn't be happier. Before it would take 20mins every morning to do my makeup - layers of primer, foundation, concealer. Now my skin is so clear that a bit of blush, gloss and some concealer is all I need. I've always been hesitant with cosmetic procedures and Dr. Austin and her staff have been amazing. I've never felt pressured to try or buy anything. tbh she's discouraged me more than once from trying unnecessary treatments. Dr Austin listens and recommends small natural looking changes."- N.G. / Yelp / Dec 29, 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.
