If your double chin has you feeling down about your appearance, your dermatologist may have just the treatment to help you get rid of your double chin for good. Kybella is a cosmetic procedure which improves your profile and reduces the appearance of fat underneath the chin. But how does Kybella work? What can this treatment do for you? Find out more about Kybella with Affiliated Dermatologists and Dermatologic Surgeons with locations in Mt. Arlington, Morristown, Liberty Corner, and Bridgewater, NJ.
What is Kybella?
Kybella is an FDA-approved treatment which destroys the fat cells underneath the chin to provide a slimmer, improved look. This treatment can help heal self-consciousness or embarrassment from a double chin and help you feel great in the skin you’re in. Kybella is safe to use and generally does not have any downtime after the procedure.
Am I a candidate for Kybella?
While Kybella is an effective treatment for double chin, it should not take the place of proper diet and exercise. Patients who eat well and exercise regularly but still have a double chin are good candidates for Kybella. Additionally, candidates should have realistic expectations for their results. You should alert your doctor to any medications you take regularly or medical conditions you have.
If you think you could benefit from Kybella, you should consult with your dermatologist to ensure that this is the best treatment for you. The procedure takes only a few minutes and occurs right in your doctor’s office. For more information on Kybella or to further understand what it can do for you, please contact your dermatologists at Affiliated Dermatologists and Dermatologic Surgeons with locations in Mt. Arlington, Morristown, Liberty Corner, and Bridgewater, NJ. Call 973-267-0300 to schedule your appointment at any of the four New Jersey locations today!
Contrary to a popular myth, warts do not come from frogs. In fact, a wart is a common and treatable condition which can cause you to feel embarrassed by your appearance or even may become painful in some situations. Find out more about treating your warts with your dermatologists at Affiliated Dermatologists and Dermatologic Surgeons with locations in Mt. Arlington, Morristown, Liberty Corner, and Bridgewater, NJ.
What causes a wart?
A wart comes from an infection of the topmost layer of skin. The infection, caused by a virus, usually enters the skin through a tiny cut or scratch, often not even visible to the naked eye. The virus causes the cells to multiply too quickly, forming a growth, or wart. The virus is usually transferred by direct skin-to-skin contact or situations like using a towel someone with a wart used before you. Avoiding coming into contact with the virus via good hand washing techniques and simple changes like wearing shower shoes in public, damp places can help you avoid getting a wart.
Kinds of Warts
There are several types of warts, including:
- Common warts: A common wart grows most often on the toes or fingers and is round and grainy in appearance. The wart may be grey in color.
- Plantar warts: These warts occur on the bottom of the feet and, thanks to the pressure of the body’s weight, grow inward. Many people who suffer from plantar warts describe them as feeling as though they have a rock in their shoe. The wart may look like a small hole with thick, callused skin around it.
- Flat warts: Flat warts occur most commonly on the face, arms, and thighs. They are flat and small, with colors ranging from pink to brown.

Broken blood vessels around the nose can affect your looks and make you look older than you really are. Thanks to an innovative treatment called the Cutera Excel V Laser, broken blood vessels can go away after just a few appointments with a dermatologist at Affiliated Dermatologists in Morristown, Mt. Arlington, Liberty Corner, and Bridgewater, NJ.
What Causes Broken Blood Vessels?
When the blood vessels on the face become more pronounced, red, and swollen they’re called “broken vessels.” It is an issue that commonly shows up around the nose or eyes. It can be caused by any of the following:
- Overexposure to the sun over a period of time.
- Allergic reactions.
- Having a cold and blowing the nose too much.
- A systemic medical condition like lupus.
- Skin conditions like rosacea.
- Heredity (this may be more common in people with a certain genetic background).
- The basic process of aging.
The Cutera Excel V Laser
As natural as broken blood vessels may be, many patients don’t want to live with them for cosmetic reasons. The Cutera Excel V Laser is a small handheld device that is waved over the affected area. A laser beam emits waves of energy to reduce the appearance of red veins around the nose. Cutera addresses both vascular problems of the skin and problems with pigmentation.
Small Investment; Significant Results
Cutera treatments require a small investment in money and time compared to the great results you’ll achieve. Many patients see improvement after just a few sessions, which takes a matter of minutes for each appointment. You can relax knowing that you’ll have a comfortable experience—the Cutera wand includes a special mechanism that protects and cools your skin during the session.
Talk to a Dermatologist
One or two treatments with the Cutera Excel V Laser may be all you need to fix the broken blood vessels around your nose and face.

As we age, the elements which keep our skin tight, firm, and youthful begin to break down. This natural process leaves the skin looser and, in some cases, sagging, creating an older and more worn appearance. However, you can tighten and lift your sagging facial skin with Silhouette InstaLift. Find out more about Silhouette InstaLift with your dermatologists at Affiliated Dermatologists and Dermatologic Surgeons with locations in Mt.

One of the most obvious benefits of the Silhouette InstaLift procedure is its minimal recovery time. Patients will most likely experience some mild swelling, redness, or bruising after their treatment. Over-the-counter pain relievers should help with any pain you may experience.
