What is KYBELLA?
Do you see a picture of yourself and shudder at the presence of a "double chin?" If so, Brickell Cosmetic Center may be able to help! Even a small amount of extra fat in the upper neck area may create the presence of a "double chin" that is bothersome to both women and men in the Miami Beach and Brickell, FL areas. Additional pockets of fat under the chin (also known as the submental area) can be caused by weight fluctuations, aging, or genetics that lead to a softer jawline and chin for a less defined profile. Dermatologist Dr. Lauren Dozier is proud to offer a cutting-edge technique to get rid of neck fat at her Miami, FL office. Approved by the FDA (Food and Drug Administration), KYBELLA is a nonsurgical option to reduce upper neck fat. The active component in KYBELLA is a manmade version of deoxycholic acid (DA), which works like the natural DA in the body to break down and absorb fat. After it has been injected beneath the chin, you should see a visible reduction in the volume of fat. When the fat is removed, the cells will not return so you can enjoy your new slimmer neck and strong jawline for years to come.
"I’m thrilled to have found this MedSpa. No need to look elsewhere, BCC is everything that you are looking for. Thus far, I have had a hydrafacial and Botox (both for the first time). My experience was fantastic for both procedures. Dr. Dozier assisted in starting me off with the appropriate amount of Botox to achieve my beauty goals. She was very knowledgeable and took my unique skin into consideration when choosing the right plan for me. I felt comfortable and confident in her and am so happy with the results (and this is just the beginning!). I will definitely be coming back and continue to enhance my natural beauty. Thank you Dr. Dozier and staff! You’ll be seeing a lot more of me in the near future."- K.R. / Google / Nov 11, 2020

What Can I Expect from My KYBELLA Treatment?
To start your KYBELLA appointment, someone from our team may apply a numbing ointment to the injection area, if requested, for added comfort. The injection takes around 15 – 20 minutes, which includes several small injections into the upper neck area. You may only require one treatment to achieve your desired goal, or you may need multiple treatments spaced 3 – 4 weeks apart, depending on your overall goals. After your appointment, you're free to return to your normal routine, although keep in mind, you may experience temporary bruising, swelling, or numbness under your chin for a few days. While the fat cells that are destroyed do not regenerate, the remaining cells can become larger so you must keep a stable weight after your KYBELLA treatments to keep new pockets of fat from forming. Ideal results after this treatment leave your neck looking sleeker and tighter, and your neckline will be more defined.
Am I eligible for KYBELLA?
KYBELLA is designed for adults at least 18 years old who want to improve the appearance and profile of their double chin. Patients should discuss their health history with the specialists at Brickell Cosmetic Center to determine if KYBELLA is safe for their needs. Women who are pregnant or nursing are not eligible for KYBELLA at this time.
Can KYBELLA be used to treat other areas?
Currently, KYBELLA is only approved to treat the chin and upper neck areas. For people who want to treat unwanted signs of aging like wrinkles and creases, our clinic offers a wide range of wrinkle relaxers and dermal fillers. These injections can be placed around the eyes, mouth, nose, and brow to achieve a more pleasing appearance.
How much does KYBELLA cost?
The cost of KYBELLA injections depends on how many units are needed to complete your look. During your consultation at Brickell Cosmetic Center, our aesthetic team can create a personalized KYBELLA treatment plan based on your budget and goals. We can also discuss payment options — so there are no surprises in terms of cost.
