KybellaPatientPRI1BeforeAfterRESIZED.pngKybella™ The Fat-dissolving Injectable

realself-top100-doctor-2015KYBELLA™ is the first and only FDA approved injectable drug that contours and improves the appearance of submental fullness and has arrived at Ritacca Cosmetic Surgery & Medspa in Vernon Hills! KYBELLA™ is a substance identical to deoxycholic acid naturally produced in the body that will absorb fat in the double-chin– for good!   The FDA (Food and Drug Administration) has approved the nonsurgical treatment for the double-chin and neck fat. A study performed by the American Society for Dermatologic last year reported that 68% of people were concerned with the extra chin or neck fat.

KybellaPatientPRI1BeforeAfterRESIZED.pngMaster Trainer, Dawn Davidson, RN, has been hand-selected as one of the few injectors in the state that has undergone extensive Kybella training by Allergan to achieve the best outcomes and minimal complications.


How does KYBELLA™ work?
KYBELLA™ is painlessly injected with a very tiny needle to the extra fat in your chin region; the treatment lasts 15-20 minutes. It is performed in a series of 2-4 treatments – the results are permanent! If a consecutive treatment is necessary, the treatment will take place 3-4 weeks post initial treatment.

Who can benefit from KYBELLA™ injectable?
Anyone who wants to eliminate fatty neck and double chin to enhance their facial structure.  This can be a safe alternative to surgical liposuction.

What can I expect from a series of KYBELLA treatments?
People who receive a full correction of Kybella™ injectable treatments can expect a younger, thinner appearance in the lower face region.  One may combine Kybella™ with a skin tightening treatment using radiofrequency or ultrasound such as ThermiLift or Ultherapy to further aesthetic results.

At Ritacca Cosmetic Surgery & Medspa, we have several options for double chin reduction with our expert doctors including Laser Lipo, Liposuction and Kybella. Please call our office to determine which treatment is best suited for your needs at 847-367-8815.

Hello from Iraq. You performed surgery on my eyes in April of 2007 and I was called to Iraq in August 2007. I can see! You probably saved my life with the mission I have. It is beautiful not to be dependent on glasses. With the quality sun glasses we have, Oakley and ESS, my eyes are fully protected unlike those wearing prescription sunglasses. Thank you, ”
