Even a small amount of excess fat in the upper throat area may create the presence of a "double chin" that is unwanted to both women and men. The extra pockets of fat beneath the chin (aka the submental area) can be caused by weight fluctuations, aging, or genetics that lead to a softer jawbone and chin for less defined profile. Riverside, CA board-certified plastic surgeon Dr. Ben Childers is pleased to provide a revolutionary method to eliminate neck fat at Sheer Beauty Medical Spa. Approved by the FDA (Food and Drug Administration), Kybella is a new nonsurgical procedure for upper neck fat. The active component in Kybella is a manmade version of deoxycholic acid, which works similarly like the body's natural DA to dissolve and absorb fat cells. Once it's injected below the chin, you can see a visible decrease in the volume of fat. After the fat cells are eliminated, it does not re-form, so you can enjoy your new, slimmer neck and clear jawline.
The ideal candidates for Kybella treatments have additional fat in the upper throat (submental area), which creates unwanted fullness or a double chin. Kybella addresses resistant sections of fat that will not be minimized with usual weight loss techniques because it is created by genetics, aging, and several other conditions. If you are at or near a healthy, stable weight, but exercise and diet have not worked to remove the fat in your neck, Kybella may be the correct procedure for your needs. While Kybella may reduce small or moderate pockets of fat in the upper neck, larger pockets of fat may be better treated with surgical neck liposuction.

"I've visit a couple of skincare facilities around the area including synergy medical where i was referral to, and by far the best experience at Sheer Beauty. I arrived 15 min early and was greeted by the front desk ladies with smiles and registration. One of them offer me coffee,tea or water and of course coffee is my preference. I didn't have to wait long at all when Sally the RN introduced her self and took me back. I explained my goals and concerns and what i hope to accomplish and Sally guide me into what procedures would be best. Her guidelines were exact as she delivered, i did not feel rushed or was she pushy whether or not i wanted to do the procedure. I absolutely LOVE LOVE my lips (Juvederm) and forehead (Botox) beyond happy with the results. I was also introduce to the esthetician to guide me with skincare which i am looking forward for my hydra-facial. Definitely a return customer !"- C.W. / Yelp / Dec 10, 2018

Kybella treatments are completed during an appointment in one of our treatment rooms. We usually apply a numbing cream to the treated area, if preferred, once the skin is cleansed. The procedure lasts around 15 minutes, which includes multiple small injections into the upper neck area. Patients may need a single treatment to achieve their desired goal, while other patients may require several injections spaced three weeks between each appointment.
What to Expect
Because Kybella doesn't need general anesthesia, patients can leave our office when they are ready to return to their usual routine. Patients may experience short-term swelling, bruising, or numbness beneath the chin; however, this shouldn't last more than 2 – 3 days. Contact Sheer Beauty Medical Spa right away if you are feeling any unusual symptoms, like difficulty swallowing, facial muscle weakness, or if your facial expressions are uneven. While the fat eliminated by Kybella do not regenerate, the cells that remain can get larger, so patients must keep a stable weight after their Kybella treatments to avoid new pockets of fat from developing. The results after this procedure leave your neck looking slimmer and tighter and your neckline will be better defined.
