What is Kybella?
Kybella is one of the latest breakthroughs in nonsurgical fat reduction and used for the improvement of the appearance of moderate to severe submental fat in adults. We also refer to this as the "tech neck" noticed when looking down at your phone or also known as "chin fat". Snyder Dermatology in Austin, TX offers this outstanding cosmetic treatment for patients desiring a more contoured, slimmer chin/neck appearance. Manufactured by Allergan, once injected, Kybella permanently reduces fat deposits in the submental area, which includes stubborn fat in the upper neck, just below the chin. This eliminates the look of "double chin" that in the past, only surgery could correct. During the initial consultation, Dr. Snyder or one of our board-certified dermatologists will examine the chin and determine if Kybella is the right treatment for you. Some patients will require surgical liposuction or plastic surgery, which we can discuss with you during your appointment.
"I've been a patient at Snyder Dermatology for about a year and a half. The second you walk into the Louis Henna location, you are greeted with a warm welcome. I really love that I can call the office and be seen by Dr. Cervantes within a week and a half or less. The staff is respectful of your time, and you can expect to spend little to no time in the waiting room before being called back. Dr. Cervantes is absolutely amazing, and really takes the time to diagnose you properly. She is friendly, professional, and extremely competent. I had a bad rash on my skin that I had confused for acne. She was able to properly diagnose me and my skin is back to being as smooth as a baby's bottom!There is also a wide array of cosmetic services offered at the office at competitive prices. They also offer samples of cleansers, creams, etc. which is really a great bonus."- C.P. / Google / Feb 28, 2019

"Just had my first Microneedling done today and so far I love the results! Susan was very attentive and walked me through each step of the way. I highly recommend Snyder Dermatology Round Rock. I can't wait for to finish my next two sessions to see the final result."- D.O. / Yelp / Apr 11, 2019
"If I could give more than 5 stars I would. This has been a difficult, embarrassing and just a little scary journey for me. I was referred to Dr Snyder for a complete skin exam where we talked about a spot I had noticed that Dr Snyder biopsied and determined was basal cell carcinoma. Another appointment was made with her colleague, Dr. Dietert. Long story short. Dr. Dietert performed the procedure this morning, showing up on time. Her assistant was amazing and professional in every way. They both made this whole thing NOT SUCK as much as it might have. They were both very relaxed, informative and professional. The office environment was spotless and the patient waiting room was comfortable and accommodating. Dr. Dietert performance was spot on, removing all those nasty cancer cells on the first procedure, making my total in-office rime less than 2 hours. Thank you from the bottom of my heart for your compassion, professionalism and kindness to the entire staff. Also helped you sharing the parking lot with Deckhands, the best seafood joint in the area. Cudos!!!!"- J.M. / Yelp / Apr 11, 2019

Candidates for Kybella treatments must be at least 18 years old and not pregnant or breastfeeding. In the initial consultation before the procedure, patients should tell their doctor about their medical history, as well as any current medications or medical concerns. Deoxycholic acid, the active ingredient in Kybella, works by destroying the dietary fat in the submental area. It will take 2 – 6 treatment sessions for patients to get their best results, but 79% of patients in clinical trials were satisfied from the final results of their Kybella treatments and they reported feeling that they looked younger, happier, and more confident.
The dermatologist practitioner will clean the area to be treated and then carefully make multiple injections under the chin with Kybella. Patients generally begin to see results after 2 - 4 treatment sessions, but if needed, patients can have up to 6 Kybella treatments with a usual 6-week break between sessions. Many patients report minor, temporary side effects after their treatment, including pain, redness, numbness, swelling, and bruising.
Currently, Kybella is only approved to be injected into the submental area for fat reduction. While research is being done to see if Kybella is safe on other parts of the face and body, a reputable dermatologist will only use Kybella in the area of the neck below the chin.
