Health Alert: KYBELLA


ASHEVILLE, N.C. -- A new procedure designed to get rid of the double chin is now available in our area.

So far, there have been as many men as women showing interest.

Robin Kaskie, 59, gets up to 40 injections of a natural substance at a time while undergoing Kybella designed to eliminate her double chin.

Before and after photos prove it's going away as a result of this new FDA approved treatment available at Dermablue in Asheville.

Each procedure takes between 20 and 30 minutes. For a typically patient, two to four treatments are required.

"What happens is after that injection it breaks down the fat cells and it breaks them down for good," Dr. David LaMond said.

"Now, I'm happy with it, I'm pleased with the outcome; it can only get better from here," Kaskie said.

It's all done in the doctor's office without an invasive surgical procedure. Insurance will not cover the cost, which can total more than $4,000.

A live demonstration will be held Thursday night at Dermablue. Click here for more information.
