The PCDC Lipolysis Injection Treatment
Submental fullness, referred to by most patients as a “double chin,” is a common aesthetic concern that can impact both men and women. While several factors can contribute to the appearance of submental fullness, such as aging, genetics, and weight gain, the condition can be difficult to improve with diet and exercise alone. When patients want to avoid plastic surgery procedures such as liposuction, they often turn to other professionals to learn more about alternative options that may be less invasive. This includes our PCDC lipolysis treatment at United Medical and Aesthetics in Wilmington, North Carolina.
What is PCDC Lipolysis, and How Does This Fat Lipolysis Injection Work?
The PCDC lipolysis treatment avoids the need for invasive liposuction to address this extra fat underneath the chin. PCDC (“phosphatidylcholine deoxycholic acid”) allows for the natural breakdown of dietary fat, which remains in the chin and neck area. Kybella is an FDA-approved injectable that uses PCDC to achieve the results patients want–and eliminates the extra fat cells underneath the chin gradually, safely, and effectively. Fat melting has never been easier with Kybella injections, and this continues to be a cosmetic treatment growing in popularity among both men and women in the area.
Are PCDC Injections Safe?
PCDC is considered to be safe for use as a fat lipolysis injection. When injected into the submental area, the Kybella medication will gradually break down the fat cells for several treatments. Once these fat cells are treated, they will not return, providing patients with long-lasting results. Most patients tolerate injections well, and any discomfort can be minimized with topical numbing cream or ice before treatment.
