Feel and Look Your Best in 2016: Advanced Dermatology and Skin Cancer Associates Memphis Introduces KYBELLA®, First and Only Non-Surgical Treatment for Double Chin Reduction

Dr. Purvisha Patel, Sole Premier Provider in Memphis for KYBELLA®, a Non-Surgical Treatment Approved by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration to Reduce Excess Fat Under the Chin

MEMPHIS, TN--(Marketwired - Jan 15, 2016) -  Advanced Dermatology and Skin Cancer Associates introduces their newest treatment KYBELLA® , a revolutionary procedure that reduces the appearance of moderate to severe submental fullness also referred to as the "double chin" affecting millions of individuals. Dr. Purvisha Patel, board certified dermatologist, creator of Visha Skin Care products, and owner of Advanced Dermatology and Skin Cancer Associates is the sole provider for KYBELLA® in Memphis treating individuals in their Germantown, Tennessee and Olive Branch, Mississippi offices.

"We are proud to be the premier and only provider in Memphis for KYBELLA®, an innovative treatment helping our clients achieve lasting results," said Dr. Patel.

According to a 2015 survey conducted by the American Society for Dermatologic Surgery (ASDS), 67% of people said they were bothered by submental fullness caused by aging, genetics and weight gain. Sometimes, no matter how much diet or exercise is accomplished, the condition may not go away, making individuals look older and heavier than they actually are.

KYBELLA® is an injectable, in-office treatment lasting 15-20 minutes. It is the first and only FDA-approved treatment to minimize excess chin fat. The active ingredient in KYBELLA® is deoxycholic acid, a naturally occurring molecule in the body that aids in the breakdown and absorption of dietary fat. When injected into the fat beneath the chin, KYBELLA® destroys fat cells. Once destroyed, cells cannot store or accumulate fat leaving a leaner and precise profile.

Recognized by Allure Magazine, KYBELLA® Injections received the "Breakthrough Award 2015." The national publication also honored KYBELLA® along with other winners from their annual "Best of Beauty" list.
