What is Kybella Used For?
Many men and women of all ages, shapes, and sizes have stubborn fat under the chin that just won't budge, no matter what they do. Sometimes, the extra fat can create a "double chin" look, or it may significantly reduce the definition of the jawline. Stubborn fat under the jaw (the submental area) can be caused by many things, including aging, genetics, or simple weight fluctuation. KYBELLA is a new type of injectable treatment approved by the FDA to specifically reduce submental fat.
At Nordstar Medical, Skincare & Laser Center, Dr. Laura Dipuma is pleased to provide this revolutionary treatment. KYBELLA injections contain a synthetic version of deoxycholic acid, which mimics the function of the natural DA in the body to dissolve and absorb fat cells. The injections are administered under the chin and jaw to destroy fat cells and produce a slimmer, more defined submental area. Reach out to our practice in Jackson or Dyersburg, TN to schedule your KYBELLA consultation and treatment.
Will Kybella Work for Me?
KYBELLA treatments are ideal for men and women who have stubborn, unwanted fat under their chin and jaw (submental area). These injections are able to address submental fat that has been resistant to usual weight loss techniques due to genetics, aging, and other conditions. For those who are at or near a healthy, stable weight but can't seem to get rid of the extra volume in the upper neck, KYBELLA may be a great option for your goals. Candidates for KYBELLA should understand that it is only used to address small or moderate amounts of submental fat; larger pockets of fat may require surgical neck liposuction.
"I absolutely LOVE Nordstar and not once have I had a bad experience. I have been going to Dr. Laura for over ten years and still continue to see her even though I moved to Nashville. I’ve tried other places closer to me, but no one compares (in my opinion!). With her extensive medical background and training, she is the only one I trust to inject Botox or filler. She has a conservative approach, which I greatly appreciate! I can tell she loves what she does and is enthusiastic about continuing to learn about new products/procedures. Kimberly is also equally enthusiastic and loves to teach clients about aesthetics. The entire staff is always super helpful and friendly!"- T.S. / Google / Feb 10, 2022

"I have received multiple services at Nordstar from both Dr Dipuma and Kimberly including facial peels, a facial, and laser hair removal. I’ve always been impressed by the staff there, the high quality products and services, and comfortable environment. I wouldn’t trust anyone else with my skin! They always look out for me and are always 100% honest with me, which means a lot. I love the makeup and skin care products that they offer through Obagi and Jane Iredale. They’re top of the line! I always struggled with acne and since switching to these products, I’ve never issues. My skin is so much clearer! I highly recommend Nordstar Medical to all of my family and friends. If you’re looking for a trustworthy, professional, and highly skilled facility look no further than Nordstar."- E.N. / Google / May 13, 2021
Kybella Injections Technique
Dr. Laura Dipuma performs KYBELLA injections as an outpatient treatment at Nordstar Medical, Skincare & Laser Center in Jackson and Dyersburg, TN. On the day of your injections, we will cleanse your skin and mark the best spots for your injections, which are determined by Dr. Dipuma. Most patients don't experience too much discomfort during the injections, but we may apply a topical numbing agent before your treatment if you wish. When the treatment area is ready, Dr. Dipuma will administer several small injections, which usually takes about 15 minutes. Depending on the amount and placement of your undesired submental fat, you may only need one treatment session, or you may need several.
Kybella Results and Expectations
You will be able to leave our office and return to your normal activities as soon as your treatment is complete. Patients sometimes experience minor, temporary bruising, swelling, or numbness under the chin. This should only last a day or two, but contact Nordstar Medical, Skincare & Laser Center right away if it persists or if you have any unusual symptoms, such as facial muscle weakness or difficulty swallowing. The optimal outcome of this treatment is a slimmer, tighter-looking neck and a better-defined profile. Much like with liposuction, the fat cells destroyed by KYBELLA are gone for good and cannot grow back; however, significant weight gain can cause the remaining fat cells to grow. This means it is important to maintain a steady weight after your KYBELLA injections.
You Can Have a Slimmer Chin and Jaw
Even though everyone else in your family has to conceal their genetic double chin, it does not mean you have to. Make a consultation with Dr. Laura Dipuma to get more information about the revolutionary KYBELLA injectable treatments at Nordstar Medical, Skincare & Laser Center in Jackson and Dyersburg, TN. Destroy neck fat so you can get a well-defined jawline today.
