Kybella- the liquid lipo

Many of you may have heard of the Kybella treatment, originally developed to treat the submental or double-chin area.  What you may not know is that this magical liquid is also known as the liquid lipo treatment used in different areas of the body for fat reduction!

The active ingredient in Kybella is deoxycholic acid, a naturally occurring molecule in the body that aids in the breakdown and absorption of dietary fat. When it is injected into the fat, the solution causes the destruction of fat cells, causing the cells to be destroyed and unable to store or accumulate fat.

Some of our favorite areas for the Kybella treatment are of course the submental double-chin area, the bra fat area (you know when you put your arm down and have that bulge in the inner armpit area), outer thighs, small areas to the abdomen and flanks, and the banana roll (under the buttocks on the back of the thigh).

This is an awesome permanent treatment for fat reduction.  Typically you need an average of 2-3 treatment session based 6 weeks apart for optimal results and should expect to potentially bruise and for sure swell(this is actually a good thing) after the procedure.  Remember to do your research when deciding on where to go for any cosmetic injections because using an experienced provider is key for amazing results!  Dr. Rosalyn George is a member of the national faculty for Kybella Allergan and WDC is one of the top injection practices, AND recognized as the Best Of Wilmington in Dermatology.
