Kybella™ & LipoDissolve™ in Rochester, NY
What are Kybella™ and LipoDissolve™ in Rochester?
Kybella™ is the injection of deoxycholic acid, which is a molecule occurring naturally in the body, that has the ability to break down fat cells. Similarly, LipoDissolve™ is the injection of two enzymes called Phosphatidylcholine and Deoxycholate Acid or PC/DC for short. These ingredients are found in the body in abundance already and have been found to be very safe by researchers around the world. PC is a key component to human cell walls and has been used for years to help lower cholesterol and promote cell health. It is commonly called Lecithin and is synthesized from soy. DC is a synthetic bile salt like your liver makes to break down fats that you ingest. It is what researchers have proven is the active ingredient in the fat melting process.
Are Kybella™ and LipoDissolve™ found in the U.S.?
In April 2015, Kybella™ was approved by the FDA for treating unwanted fat under the chin. More and more practices in upstate New York are beginning to offer Kybella™.
New Genesis was not only the first medical practice in upstate New York to perform LipoDissolve™, but we were also one of the first in the nation. We have performed thousands of treatments to date and helped countless patients achieve the benefits of non-surgical body contouring to smooth and tighten skin. We understand the struggle of trying to lose fat in a stubborn area that is resistant to diet and exercise. We also understand that some people are genetically predisposed to carry fat in certain areas while others experience body shape changes due to medical conditions and as they mature.
How are Kybella™ and LipoDissolve™ performed in Rochester?
Kybella™ and LipoDissolve™ are not weight loss techniques; they are used for non-surgical contouring of small fat pockets. Kybella™ is only FDA approved for reducing small, unwanted fat deposits found under the chin. LipoDissolve™ is used for most small fat pockets; and, an average of five treatments is needed to an area. An anesthetic cream is applied two hours prior to your treatment to minimize the discomfort of injections. Each treatment is performed six weeks apart. New Genesis focuses the LipoDissolve™ treatment on the chin and jowls.
