Rockville, MD Practice Now Offering New FDA-Approved Non-Surgical Double Chin Treatment

Dr. Lawrence Green is now offering the newly FDA-approved Kybella injectable to his Rockville, MD, and Washington, DC area patients. Kybella is a non-surgical method to dissolve fat cells and is the first of its kind to be approved for the use of reducing moderate to severe fat deposits under the chin, commonly known as a double chin. Dr. Green participated in clinical trials for Kybella and has already treated many patients with success even though the treatment has only recently become generally available.

Kybella works by using an injectable treatment to dissolve fat cells and reshape the chin area without surgery. When injected into the submental fat area under the chin, Kybella destroys the localized deposits of fat cells. The key ingredient in Kybella is identical to deoxycholic acid, an acid naturally produced in the body.

“I’m thrilled that Kybella is now available to the general public,” says Dr. Lawrence Green, “I’m excited to offer the great results we saw in treating double chins during the clinical trials to more patients.”

Patients may receive up to 50 injections in a single treatment, and up to six single treatments administered no less than one month apart. Kybella is an ideal treatment option for patients with excess fat deposits that have been resistant to change with diet and exercise. Kybella is not designed to tighten loose, sagging, “turkey neck” type skin laxity. Side effects of Kybella may include numbness, nerve injury in the jaw area that can cause uneven smile, swelling, bruising, and pain at the injection site.

Dr. Green, a leading dermatologist, is frequently interviewed by national television networks, radio, and large circulation newspapers and magazines. Dr. Green is also recognized among medical professionals as a premier leader in injectable cosmetic treatments. He serves on the national faculty for the Radiesse wrinkle filler and is an original member for Kybella national physician trainers. Dr. Green also oversees a clinical trial center at his office, where patrons have the option to participate in clinical trials that offer the latest and most advanced treatments to help improve their skin.
