Even a little extra fat in the upper neck area can cause the appearance of a "double chin" that can be bothersome to both men and women. The excess pockets of fat under the chin (also known as the submental area) may be caused by aging, genetics, or weight fluctuations that lead to a weaker chin and jawbone for an undefined profile. Our expert injector and board-certified dermatologist, Dr. Reuel Aspacio, is pleased to offer a new way to eliminate neck fat at Summerlin Dermatology in Las Vegas, NV. Approved by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA), Kybella is the first nonsurgical treatment for submental fat. The active ingredient in Kybella is a synthetic version of deoxycholic acid (DA) that acts like the natural DA in the body to break down and absorb fat. Once it is injected under the chin, you may see a noticeable reduction in fat. When the fat is destroyed, the cells cannot return, so you are able to enjoy your new, slim profile and strong jawline for years to come. You don’t have to be overweight to have fullness under your chin. And sometimes, no matter how much you exercise or diet, the condition may not go away. That’s when its time to contact Dr. Aspacio. If you are looking for a nonsurgical alternative for getting rid of your double chin in the Las Vegas area, call Summerlin Dermatology to schedule your appointment.
The best patients for Kybella injections have excess fat in the upper neck (submental area) that causes a double chin or unwanted fullness. This injection treats stubborn pockets of fat that cannot be reduced with normal weight loss methods due to genetics, aging, or other conditions. If you are at a healthy weight, but diet and exercise have not helped to reduce the fat in your upper neck, Kybella may be the right treatment for you. While Kybella can correct small to moderate amounts of fat in the submental area, larger amounts of fat may require surgical liposuction.

"I've been coming to Summerlin Dermatology for a couple of years for Botox and filler and have been very pleased with results. Trish is the doctor's knowledgeable coordinator, and she's wonderful. They've always succeeded in making me look better (not fake, or young, or expressionless). Better is what I was going for. I hate the "plastic look" that so many of these treatments produce. I highly recommend Dr. Aspacio and his staff."- S.R. / Yelp / Jan 24, 2020
"One of the best Dermatolgy offices in town. Dr Aspacio is a fantastic injector. He listens and addresses concerns along with his nurse Trish. They make a great team and I always leave feeling my best. I have never been anything but thrilled with my botox and filler results. I have referred over 15 family members and friends and they all have had a similar experience. Thank you Doc and team!!!!!!"- C.L. / Yelp / Jan 24, 2020
"I have been a patient/client of Dr. Aspacio's since 2009. I had been searching for a place to get Botox and start my whole anti-aging regimen and hadn't had much luck. I went to a few places that made me feel really bad about myself and I left there feeling awful. Then I found Summerlin Dermatology and Trish Hoffman the cosmetic coordinator is amazing. She's honest, won't try and sell you a bill of goods, and takes her position very seriously. She gets it! Dr. Aspacio is top notch. He is an expert injector, which means he is specially trained to inject neurotoxins in places that normally other injectors would not. He is sweet, professional, smart and well known for his practice in Las Vegas. My girlfriends come here from SF and LA just so they can see him! I have also had many treatments by the Aesthetician's. My favorite is their clear and brilliant but also their Venus Viva is a great treatment too. It's a relaxing office with a cool waiting area where you can buy products. I forgot to mention the fact that Dr. Aspacio is a great dermatologist. If you have any skin conditions, problem rashes etc he's your man!!"- T.J. / Yelp / Jan 24, 2020
Kybella is performed during an in-office appointment. Dr. Aspacio will often apply a numbing ointment to the treatment area, if requested, after the skin has been cleansed. The procedure takes about 15 – 20 minutes, which includes several small injections targeting the submental area. Some patients may only need one treatment to reach their goal, while others may need multiple treatments spaced 3 – 4 weeks apart at Summerlin Dermatology.
What to Expect
Kybella doesn't require anesthesia, so you are able to leave the office as soon as you feel comfortable to resume your normal activities. You may have temporary bruising, swelling, or numbness under your chin. While the fat cells that are destroyed do not return, the remaining cells can become larger, so you should maintain a steady weight after your Kybella injections to prevent new pockets of fat from forming. Optimal results following this treatment leave your neck looking tighter and sleeker and your profile will be more defined.
