Expert Santa Monica Cosmetic Physicians Offer New "Double Chin" Treatment

Dr. Mary Lee Amerian and Dr. George Anterasian announce the addition of Kybella™ for the treatment of “the double chin” in adults.


Santa Monica, CA -- (SBWIRE) -- 09/25/2015 -- Dr. Mary Lee Amerian, renowned dermatologist in Santa Monica, and Dr. George Anterasian, laser and non-surgical facial rejuvenation expert at the Santa Monica Laser and Skin Care Center, are excited to announce the addition of Kybella™, to their list of injectable and dermal filler services. Kybella is the only FDA approved injectable drug for the treatment of moderate to severe convexity or fullness associated with submental fat, also known as "the double chin", in adults. "A recent consumer survey by the American Society for Dermatologic Surgery revealed that 68 percent of consumers are bothered by fullness under their chin," said George J. Hruza, M.D., President of the American Society for Dermatologic Surgery. This first-in-class non-surgical treatment fills an unmet need in cosmetic treatments for women and men who are bothered by submental fullness under the chin.

Kybella™ utilizes a naturally found compound called deoxycholic acid, a naturally-occurring molecule in the body that aids in the breakdown and absorption of dietary fat. Once injected into subcutaneous fat, Kybella causes the destruction of fat cells. Once destroyed, those cells cannot store or accumulate fat. After the aesthetic result is achieved, retreatment with Kybella is not expected. Kybella™ is administered through a series of injections spaced about one month apart. The in-office treatment session typically takes 15-20 minutes, requires no downtime, and is non-surgical.

Drs. Amerian and Anterasian are excited to offer this new one-of-a-kind treatment to improve the appearance of "double chins" to their Los Angeles patients.
