Eliminating Double Chin Fat with Kybella

There are a few areas where the body can store fat that are difficult to get rid of with healthy diets and workouts alone – and the submentum, or area under the chin, is definitely one of those areas. Luckily, there is Kybella!   Check out our deal that we are offering for Kybella this month in celebration of all of the success we have had so far with patients and eliminating the dreaded "double chin."

Kybella expert treats submittal fullness San Diego

 

Kybella is the first FDA-approved, non-surgical treatment that targets the fat that creates a double chin. It is a naturally-occurring bile acid, called deoxycholic acid, that is injected into the fat beneath the chin and destroys fat cells. In the body, the job of deoxycholic acid is to break down dietary fats in the gut after eating a meal.  It therefore makes sense to exploit this natural process for other areas in the body that have unwanted fat such as the double chin Continue reading

Cellfina: Right candidate for treating cellulite

This month, I am featured in InStyle Magazine talking about the new Cellfina Treatment to get rid of cellulite. We are very excited to be one of a few practices in the local area to offer Cellfina! The Cellfina System is the only FDA-cleared minimally invasive procedure that has been clincally proven to improve the appearance of cellulite for at least two years. This treatment specifically targets stubborn, discrete dimple-like cellulite. The results are superb and quite visible, even as soon as at a three-day follow up. Ideal candidates for the Cellfina System treatment are:
  • Reasonably Fit
  • At a stable weight
  • Have dimple-like cellulite
  • Have good skin tone (too lax of skin won’t yield ideal results)
Cellfina is completed in the office as a single, one-time procedure completely under local anesthetic.  There is minimal downtime and patients are only asked to wear a light compression garment like Spanx or workout pants for several days after the procedure.  To see the procedure in action, check out the YouTube videos below where Dr. Palm demonstrates marking, numbing, and treatment of the cellulite on a real patient!   Continue reading
