Dr. F. Victor Rueckl Discusses His Success with Kybella

He's now the #1 Injector of Kybella in Nevada!

There are quite a few benefits of growing older, such as raising a family, moving up the corporate ladder, and achieving some of our lifelong goals. Such endeavors make life an enjoyable journey, but some speed bumps can be encountered along the way. Some of these speed bumps can come in the form of unwanted changes in our bodies as we grow older. As an experienced dermatologist, I'm quite used to individuals seeking to turn back the hands of time to gain a more youthful appearance. Some of the desired changes are gender-specific, but one common complaint that we see at Lakes Dermatology of Las Vegas is the dreaded double chin. Fortunately for our patients, there is a new FDA-approved treatment, Kybella, which has been highly successful in melting away that stubborn fat.

I always stress to my patients that getting a double chin as they get older does not mean that they did anything wrong or have acted in an unhealthy way. There are quite a few reasons why the double chin can appear as a person gets older. Some of the culprits that may be responsible include just getting older, being overweight, and family genetics. The reality is that the skin in the neck area loses its elasticity as one gets older. This loss of elasticity then causes the skin to droop and sag, just like the skin on other parts of our body. In years past, our clinic, Lakes Dermatology, would have performed a neck lift procedure on our clients to rectify this issue. However, a new treatment in the form of Kybella has come onto the market recently, and our clinic has used it to tremendous success.

Kybella is an injectable treatment that, when administered to adults, will destroy the fat cells that make up that extra waddle under the chin. The key ingredient in Kybella is a synthetic form of deoxycholic acid. While the name of deoxycholic acid sounds scary, it is actually just a naturally occurring molecule found in all of our bodies that helps in the breakdown and absorption of dietary fat. Kybella works by making the fat cells incapable of accumulating or storing fat, which destroys them. The treatment of Kybella results in a remarkable improvement to one's profile as that double chin is essentially melted away. My patients at Lakes Dermatology of Las Vegas have been ecstatic with the change in their appearance, causing many of them to happily remark that they now look years younger.

There are quite a few benefits to using Kybella to deal with my patients' unwanted double chin. The first is that the procedure is non-surgical, which means that the usual complications associated with surgery do not apply. Another benefit of Kybella is that it is cheaper than getting a neck lift, which is doubly beneficial in that most major insurance policies do not cover neck lifts. A third great feature of Kybella is that while it is possible for my patients to receive up to six treatments that are spaced one month apart, many of them start seeing visible results after two to four treatments. Of course, the best facet of using Kybella is that the effects are practically permanent as the fat cells are destroyed. These reasons are why I've been extremely busy scheduling and performing Kybella treatments at Lakes Dermatology since the treatment launched.

Needless to say, the reaction to Kybella by those coming to Lakes Dermatology in Las Vegas has been huge. We are seeing both men and women asking for the treatment, and Kybella is especially popular with our male clients as it helps give them a more chiseled jawline. Naturally, there are some side effects to using Kybella to dispose of that unsightly double chin. I stress to all my patients that they will look like a puffer fish for a short time after the injection has been done. Some of the more common side effects are bruising, swelling, pain, redness, and numbness around the treatment area, but these effects usually disappear after a short time. However, my patients are quite willing to be affected by minor, temporary side effects as they love knowing that their skin tone and firmness will improve dramatically after the fat cells are destroyed.

As I've stated before, Kybella has proven to be an extremely popular choice by our clients at Lakes Dermatology. I consult with patients every day who ask me to start them on a treatment program, especially as I am a trainer for the maker of Kybella, Allergan, and have over fifteen years of mesotherapy experience. I'm highly gratified to see my patients' reaction to having their double chin literally melt away and having the skin tighten up, taking years off their appearance and helping restore confidence in their looks. It's great that a treatment can have such a major impact upon a notorious trouble spot, the double chin, without the need for surgery and with just a few injections.
