Pioneer of the acclaimed FotoFacial® procedure and always searching for better solutions, Dr. Bitter now offers KYBELLA®, an innovative, non-surgical method recently approved by the FDA to eliminate a double chin and improve the appearance and contour of your face and neck.


A slender neck and jawline contribute to facial beauty and a youthful appearance. Conversely, submental fullness, more commonly referred to as a double chin, may cause you to appear overweight, older, and less attractive. Board-certified dermatologist Dr. Patrick Bitter, Jr. specializes in non-surgical treatments that delay aging and enhance your natural beauty.

Treating submental fullness with KYBELLA® includes the following benefits:

  • Corrects the appearance of a double chin
  • Quick and effective treatment
  • Slimmer, more youthful, and more attractive facial contours
  • No need for repeat treatments over the years
  • No recovery or downtime
  • Enhanced self-confidence


KYBELLA® is a powerful, non-surgical treatment that can eliminate submental fullness. It is comprised of deoxycholic acid, a molecule that naturally assists in the breakdown and absorption of fat. Each treatment with KYBELLA® takes place in Dr. Bitter’s office and lasts up to 20 minutes, with no recovery or downtime. Once KYBELLA® has been tactically injected into the submental region, it will break down the fat over the following six weeks so that the lymphatic system can flush the destroyed fat cells from the body. Dr. Bitter may perform up to six treatment sessions to achieve your aesthetic goals, but no additional treatments will be necessary once your realistic goals have been met. After your treatment(s), the deoxycholic acid will remain in the submental area to prevent future fat accumulation.


After your treatment with KYBELLA®, your results will improve over the following four to six weeks. It may take a few weeks for the results to become noticeable. As the results improve, you will observe your double chin disappearing until it is permanently eliminated. If multiple treatments are desired to achieve your goals, Dr. Bitter will need to space them at least four weeks apart. Many patients will be highly satisfied after only two to four treatment sessions. Dr. Bitter can permanently eliminate your double chin with KYBELLA® and help you to look thinner, younger, and more attractive.

Patrick Bitter, Jr., M.D. is a world-renowned, board-certified dermatologist and expert in non-surgical anti-aging treatments. Dr. Bitter can enhance your facial appearance and contour your neck, chin, and jawline using KYBELLA®, a highly effective new treatment that eliminates submental fullness.
