As I write, I am flying back from the first regional training session for Kybella™. The FDA just approved Kybella™ for treatment on “double chin”.

The excitement about the release of this product has been building for months. Release to the public is forthcoming, but Central Texas Dermatology has been chosen to begin treatments early. I will be treating my first patient in a few days.

Kybella™ is made of deoxycholate which is found naturally in our bodies. When injected into fat, the fat is dissolved and the entire fat cell is eliminated, never to reappear. 2 – 4 sessions (spaced one month apart) should be scheduled for best results. Side effects are fortunately temporary, and include swelling, bruising and nerve damage.

Stay tuned. You will be hearing a lot about Kybella™ after its official release.
