Reduce a Double Chin in Denver
AboutSkin was proud to be among the first practices to be able to offer Kybella® in Denver. The unique injectable treatment is designed to reduce “double chin” fat (technically known as submental fullness). This fat can resist both diet and exercise so that, while other areas of the body become slimmer over time due to successful lifestyle changes and body contouring efforts, a double chin often stubbornly remains.
We regularly see women and men who not only want to address a double chin but want to improve their appearance through the use of the latest products, technology, and techniques. That makes Kybella® a welcome addition to our cosmetic dermatology toolbox, which also includes botulinum toxins for wrinkles caused by facial expressions; fillers for deflated cheeks and folds; and lasers for texture resurfacing, pigment, and redness.
Why Choose Kybella® at Denver’s AboutSkin?
AboutSkin participated in the Food and Drug Administration Kybella® trials, and our very own Dr. Joel Cohen has served on the Scientific Advisory Board for Kythera (manufacturer of Kybella®) for years.
What Does Kybella® Treat?
When submental fat (underneath the chin) becomes excessive, it results in the appearance of a “double chin.” Many patients feel self-conscious about this look of fullness under their chin—especially the way it affects their profile. This is often most evident in photographs and selfies that can make people look heavier than they really are.
Fat reduction, particularly in the area under the chin, has historically been treated either surgically or with liposuction. These invasive procedures are associated with significant recovery time and potential risks, which can be deterrents to those seeking a solution to their problem of chin and neck fat.
Fullness under the chin can be associated with excess weight, but it can also be a genetically acquired trait. Even after a successful weight loss program, some patients may not be able to shed the stubborn fat deposits that result in the dreaded “double chin” appearance. Reducing this area of fat excess has become a reality with Kybella®.
What Is Kybella®?
Kybella® is an injectable solution administered by a trained physician. The physician uses a needle to inject it into the fatty tissue under the chin. The active ingredient is a dietary acid that breaks down the fat cell membranes.
In the FDA trial, most patients required an average of four treatment sessions spaced one month apart. However, we know from our experience that some patients—particularly those with smaller areas of excess fat—may see improvement after two or three treatments. Safety and effectiveness was established in the FDA trials that we participated in.
What Treatments Complement Kybella®?
Persistent fat may be only one of multiple factors creating a look of submental fullness. Lax skin may also contribute. For this problem, a skin tightening treatment, such as Genius RF or Ultherapy®, would be appropriate.

What our patients say about usBOOK NOW
Dr. Cohen is 'a derm's derm' -- his published research and opinions are sought after by other dermatologists obsessed with the latest innovations in cosmetic dermatology, including lasers, neuromodulators, and fillers. He's also trained many of these derms. Dr. Cohen is arguably one of the best in the U.S., though he's not flashy or self promoting --just intensely focused on achieving elegant, successful results. I stumbled into his practice quite by accident, and could not be happier. His PA Christina is also phenomenal.
I am so pleased with the high level of expertise and care I have received from Dr. Cohen, Dr. Ho and his medical assistants Cristina and Emily. From the Mohs surgery, to a multitude of lasers, to skin checks; the doctors have been extremely conscientious and strive to have a relationship with their patients. I am thrilled with the results of my cosmetic procedures and surgery. In addition, They are kind and very humble providers. It truly is an honor to be a patient of Dr. Cohen and to be a valued patient of his medical practice. Truly the best in the country.. and The World. Thank you Dr. Cohen and Dr. Ho and staff!
Have been a patient of Dr. Stoler for a long time. She knows me well and takes excellent care of my skin. Also gives good and appropriate advice!
Dr. Joel Cohen was highly recommended to me by several other dermatologists for his expertise in laser technology. I was not only impressed with the treatment I received from Dr. Cohen, but also his wonderful, highly skilled staff. The entire experience was top notch!
This is the BEST dermatology and cosmetic location you will ever find! Truthfully they give all the attention and care anyone could ask for. I’m always blown away at their kindness and their service. Doctor Jade Fettig always takes her time to talk to me, answer any questions and recommend the best treatment. Highly highly recommend AboutSkinDermatology. You will love it there too guaranteed! =)
Dr. Stoler is the best!
I have been a patient of About Skin Dermatology for over 12 years. Everyone that I have ever encountered at this practice has been knowledgeable and very kind. I see both Dr. Ho and Dr. Cohen. My skin has not looked this good in years. My whole family goes to this practice. I would highly recommend About Skin Dermatology.
Dr Fettig was great- took her time with me and answered my questions. She has a nice bedside manner and good sense of humor.
I used Dr. Cohen for a Mohs procedure. He is fellowship trained and extremely competent. Dr. Cohen remained involved in my follow up care with a plastic surgeon and was always readily accessible and available to address my concerns. Both he and the office staff are caring and committed to providing the highest level of professional service. I highly recommend Dr. Cohen. I think it’s very nice.
I have been impressed with my Botox treatment from Dr Cohen at AboutSkin Dermatology. He and his staff are incredibly professional and pleasant. Maddie is always flexible and accommodating with my hectic schedule. Dr. Cohen takes time and a genuine interest in his patients. I highly recommend him for any cosmetic procedures.
Dr Stephen Ho is a fantastic dermatologist. He takes the time to listen to concerns and he patiently and thoroughly explains procedures and diagnostics.
Dr. Jade Fettig is so kind, thoughtful, and good at what she does. You can tell she really cares about her patients and makes what could be awkward check-ups into comfortable, and pleasant experiences.The office lounge is clean, updated and really relaxing. Absolutely recommend her as a provider!
