Even a little bit of extra fat in the upper neck area can create the presence of a "double chin," which is bothersome to most women and men. The additional pockets of fat below the chin (or the submental area) are generally caused by genetics, weight fluctuations, or aging that lead to a softer chin and jawline for an undefined profile. DeRosa Clinic Facial Aesthetics in Boston, MA is pleased to offer a revolutionary way to eliminate neck fat. Approved by the FDA (Food and Drug Administration), KYBELLA is the first nonsurgical procedure for submental fat. The active ingredient in KYBELLA is a synthetic version of deoxycholic acid (DA), which acts like the natural DA in the body to break down and absorb fat. Once we inject KYBELLA beneath the chin, you may see a noticeable decrease in fat. When the fat is eliminated, the cells cannot regrow so you can enjoy your new slimmer profile and defined jawline for years to come.
Is KYBELLA For You?
The best patients for KYBELLA injectable treatments have unwanted fat in the upper neck (submental area) that causes a double chin or unwanted fullness. This injection helps reduce stubborn pockets of fat, which common weight loss techniques can't do because of genetics, aging, or other health conditions. If you maintain a healthy weight, but diet and exercise have not helped to remove the fat in your upper neck, KYBELLA may be the right treatment for your goals. KYBELLA can address small or moderate pockets of fat in the upper neck. For larger amounts of fat, our doctors will generally recommend surgical neck liposuction or a neck lift.

"As a mom of 3 little kids, my face was starting to look tired and I was noticing wrinkles starting to appear. After a consultation with Nicole, I decided the IPL laser was the best choice for me. I could not be happier with my results! My face looks years younger and my skin tone is much more even. Nicole and Steven were both extremely knowledgeable and realistic, which I appreciated. Will absolutely be recommending this office to all of my friends!"- D.H. / Google / Jan 19, 2021
"Beyond pleased with Dr. DeRosa and her team! From the initial consultation to the surgery and beyond. My daughter had otoplasty and the whole it was a very easy experience and she is very pleased with the outcome. Dr. DeRosa was able to answer all my and my daughter’s questions thoroughly and kept her at ease the whole time. It is so convenient that they are able to do the surgery right in the office without needing to go to a hospital, especially now with the hospitals so crowded.The whole staff is terrific, there were no wait times for appointments, everything was done efficiently, but we never felt rushed.If you are looking to have your skin feel rejuvenated I have also been to the clinic for a facial and highly recommend the experience. Both my daughter and I highly recommend Dr. DeRosa and the whole staff at the DeRosa Clinic."- M.O. / Yelp / Jan 18, 2021
"I am here to preach the gospel of the DeRosa Clinic.My story: I moved to Boston for graduate school, and I asked my esteemed SF-based doctor for a recommendation in the Boston area, and he directed me to Dr. DeRosa. I now live in Washington, DC, and I trust Dr. DeRosa so much that I called her office for dermatologist contacts in DC. How I wish I still lived in Boston so I could continue seeing Dr. DeRosa!My experience: Walking into the DeRosa clinic was like getting a much welcome dose of sunshine. The women staffing the front desk were always extremely warm and welcoming. Being so far from home, I felt well attended to and well taken care of. As I write this, I miss them so much!Dr. DeRosa was beyond fantastic. She not only addressed every concern of mine, no matter how trivial (eg, the tiniest skin irritation), but she did so with aplomb, grace, and vivacity. And I mean what I say. Dr. DeRosa was not only an extremely skilled doctor, but she was also unbelievably charismatic and caring. I left her offices, not only with my health concerns addressed, but with Soul Cycle class recommendations and networking tips!On-site, Dr. DeRosa also has the most skilled aesthetician. I literally would go from Dr. DeRosa’s office, where she would pinpoint a skin issue, to the room next door, where an aesthetician would perform a rejuvenating facial. I would look at my skin the next day, and it would look brand-spanking new. I don’t think anyone can compete with that.I now live in Washington, DC for work, and I must confess, I miss Dr. DeRosa, her staff, and the office IMMENSELY. For those of you who are close enough to be able to have De. DeRosa as your doctor, you couldn’t be more lucky!"- A.P. / Yelp / Jan 08, 2021
KYBELLA is completed during an in-office appointment. If requested, we may apply a numbing cream to the treatment area. Once we clean your skin, the procedure takes around 15 – 20 minutes, which includes multiple small injections targeting the submental area. Some patients may require a single treatment to achieve their desired goal while others may require multiple treatments spaced three weeks apart.
What to Expect
KYBELLA doesn't need general anesthesia so you can leave the office when you feel comfortable. After the treatment, patients can resume their daily routine. You may experience temporary swelling, numbness, or bruising below your chin. These symptoms shouldn't last longer than 2 – 3 days. Contact DeRosa Clinic Facial Aesthetics right away if you notice any unusual side effects, such as difficulty swallowing, facial muscle weakness, or if your smile appears uneven. While the fat that is eliminated does not regenerate, the cells that remain can get larger. To maintain your results, we recommend keeping a steady weight after your KYBELLA treatments. This will help prevent new pockets of fat from forming. After this treatment, patients generally notice a tighter and slimmer neck and a more defined profile.
