KYBELLA® is an injectable, prescription treatment used to help improve the appearance and profile of moderate to severe fat below the chin. This is most commonly referred to as the “double chin”. KYBELLA® is an FDA-approved non-surgical treatment that Dr. Theocharides uses on his patients in Red Bank, NJ. As a matter of fact, it is the only FDA-approved injectable treatment for a “double chin”! He is one of the few cosmetic doctors in New Jersey to offer this new and innovative treatment. In a 15 to 20 minute treatment session, Dr. Theocharides will contour the fullness below the chin to smooth the neck for a younger, healthier look.
Fat below the chin or the “double chin” could be something you’ve had your whole life or something that has slowly developed over the years. It can be caused by weight gain, age or genetics. A double chin is often resistant to diet and exercise. No matter how it appears or why, a double chin is something that bothers many people. According to a 2015 survey conducted by the American Society for Dermatologic Surgery (ASDS), 67% of people said they’re bothered by under-the-chin fullness, or double chin. Now there’s a non-surgical, long-lasting solution: KYBELLA®. Many patients see visible results in just 2-4 treatments. Further treatment will not be necessary since the fat cells will no longer be able to store fat.
"I have been going to Dr. T for my BOTOX now for nearly 5 years, he is a perfectionist in the work he does! He takes his time with me, listens and the results are the best! Highly recommended!"- N.M. / Google / Aug 21, 2018
"I was researching botox for men online when I came across something called “scrotox”. It is apparently becoming an increasing cosmetic thing for men. I suffer from urological conditions and have been experiencing testicular/scrotal discomfort and pain for years and have been miserable. I was curious if doing this cosmetic procedure could also help me with relief of my testicular/scrotal pain. I called a few places and then found Dr. Theocharides and Nadine. I was nervous asking about this at first but then they were so easy to talk to and I felt completely comfortable. Dr. T agreed to do the scrotox on me for cosmetic reasons only. I went and had the scrotox done. It really didn’t take that long and I did not feel any pain at all with the injections. Dr. T was cool to talk with the entire time also and I was not nervous at all. He is actually a really cool and nice person and it was an enjoyable experience. About two weeks after the scrotox procedure I started noticing results and maybe by week 3 I noticed my scrotum was completely relaxed and the best part was that I did not feel my scrotal/testicular pain anymore either. It has been about 2 months now and I’m still pain free. As for appearance my scrotum used to be tight all the time and my testicles were up near my body. They almost never hung freely. Now my scrotum is completely relaxed and testicles hang much lower. So now I am pain free and also enjoying the cosmetic appearance of having low hanging testicles. It has also improved my sex life as well. I am completely satisfied. If you are curious about getting scrotox I highly recommend Dr. T and Nadine. They are a great team. I will definitely be going there for all of my facial botox and scrotox treatments from now on. You will be in good hands if you do too."- CN / Office Visit / Mar 12, 2021

How does KYBELLA® Work?
KYBELLA® is a non-surgical, injectable treatment. The active ingredient, deoxycholic acid, destroys fat cells and is a naturally occurring substance in the body. Once destroyed, those cells cannot store or accumulate fat. Treatment is customized for each individual patient. It is administered with multiple small injections directly into your chin area to sculpt it. There is little to no downtime after the treatments. Most patients will require 2 to 4 treatment sessions that will last up to 20 minutes, spaced 4 to 6 weeks apart.* You can expect anywhere from twenty to fifty injections at each treatment. Once the desired results are achieved, re-treatment is generally not necessary. You can receive up to six treatments with a month in between each session.
Who is KYBELLA® For?
Men and women 18 years or older with moderate to severe fat beneath their chin can benefit from KYBELLA® treatment. It is best suited for healthy patients with noticeable submental fullness who don’t need or don’t desire surgery such as liposuction. A double chin is difficult to eliminate, even with diet and exercise. KYBELLA® effectively reduces the layers of fat below the chin to create a younger, more fit appearance.
Are there any health Risks?
The most common side effects of KYBELLA® include swelling, bruising, pain, numbness, redness, and areas of hardness in the treatment area. The minor side effect should disappear in about two weeks. KYBELLA® isn’t suitable for all patients. Dr. Theocharides will perform a comprehensive evaluation. KYBELLA® is not for patients with certain risk factors such as smoking, steroid use, diabetes or poor skin quality, as they may contribute to poor healing or poor results.
