For a long time, people have been trying to reduce or hide their "double chin" without much success. This excess fat in the upper neck (submental area) can be caused by weight gain, genetics, or aging so you may not be able to fix the problem with natural methods, like diet and exercise. However, ZO Skin Centre® in Orange County is happy to offer nonsurgical neck fat reduction with advanced Kybella® injections. The active ingredient in Kybella®, synthetic deoxycholic acid, works just like the body's natural fat reduction system to destroy fat cells specifically in the submental area. The broken-down fat cells are able to naturally pass through the body for a visible reduction in the double chin. Schedule a consultation at our office in Laguna Beach or Newport Beach to learn more about revolutionary Kybella® treatments for "double chins" with one of our experienced skin care professionals.

"Voluma Filler for my Face instead of Botox! AMAZING Results I was not Expecting! I recently went to see Dr. Bashey in Laguna Beach as the holidays are approaching and needed to get some Botox. I have received botox in the past and am familiar with it. I am in my mid-fifties and figured this was what I definitely needed. Dr. Bashey didn't just look at me and give me what I came in for, he sat down and really looked at my face, then went over different areas that could use help. Dr. Bashey is articulate and ended up injecting filler into my upper cheek area as well as Xeomon into my forehead. The filler ended up very naturally lifting my cheeks and face and also will last me he said up to 18 months or longer. I am extremely happy with my results and very thankful he took time with me to evaluate my needs. Dr. Bashey is extremely polite and made me feel comfortable with consulting before doing anything. I did not feel pressured and not much pain! I am looking forward to seeing him in the near furture for a for a chemical peel :)Thanks!"- N.H. / Yelp / Dec 19, 2017

To receive Kybella® injections, you should be over 18 years of age, in good overall health, and have realistic expectations. Kybella® should not be considered a weight loss method; it is for patients who are at a healthy, stable weight but still have stubborn pockets of fat in the upper neck area below the chin. Excess fat in the submental area that cannot be eliminated with natural methods may be caused by weight gain, genetics, or aging. Kybella® is currently only approved by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) for use in the submental area.
What to expect
After your consultation, Kybella® treatments typically last about 30 minutes as the ZO® team member cleans the skin and performs the injection. Several small injections are made in the submental area. Your ZO® team member will determine the best dose of Kybella® and help you decide how many treatments you should receive to meet your goal. You can have up to 6 treatments, performed at least 1 month apart. You may have some mild side effects, like swelling, bruising, pain, numbness, and redness, but these are usually temporary and will resolve on their own. It will take time to see the results of Kybella® as the fat cells are eliminated from the body, but most patients are pleased with their final results.
