With summer rapidly approaching and the prospect of bathing suits and shorts on the near horizon, we are all working toward achieving our summer bodies. Whether it means losing a few pounds or improving muscle tone – we use the tools we know best to help us in attaining our goal. Exercise burns fat and improves muscle tone. Nutrition and diet changes helps discourage further fat storage while motivating our body to use current fat reserves to fuel the body. But did you know that there are some types of fat that are resistant to diet and exercise? Whether you are genetically programmed to retain fat in this manner or your body simply holds onto it for biological reasons, we all have stubborn fat pockets. The newest innovations in aesthetic medicine allow us to treat these select areas in quick, non-invasive manner for the very first time.
Kybella is the first and only FDA-approved injectable to treat “the double chin” otherwise known as submental fat. Through a series of deoxycholic acid injections, the targeted fat cells are destroyed and naturally eliminated by the body over a period of several weeks. The results are astounding and the treatment is done quickly in-office with minimal downtime. The best part is the results are permanent! Once the fat cells are gone they cannot be regenerated again. A series of 2-3 treatments may be needed to achieve your desired results.
SculpSure is a new FDA-approved body contouring treatment that can be uniquely customized to treat your body’s needs. Ideal for the abdomen, back of arms, flanks, back and inner and outer thighs, this 25 minute treatment gently heats fat cells to disrupt the cell structure. As a result the damaged fat cells are naturally eliminated from the body so you can begin seeing results as early as 6 weeks with optimal results visible at 12 weeks. Similar to Kybella, the results are permanent!
At Kline Dermatology we take a customized approach as your body and needs are unique. Together we can develop a plan to achieve your results leveraging these latest innovations. We look forward to welcoming you soon!
