Q A For Your Skinformation. For the most part I feel good about my fi gure, but the one area that really bothers me is my saddlebags. I don’t like the way I look in skinny jeans, so I try to wear long tops that cover my thighs. Do you think CoolSculpting ® would work for me? Q A My wife is very self-conscious about her double chin. I read recently that there is a new medication that can melt away a double chin, and I think it’s something she would be very interested in. Can you tell me more about it? It’s Kybella ™ , the fi rst medication approved by the FDA to dissolve fat under the chin. Injected into the double chin to destroy the fat cells, the procedure is done in the offi ce, without anesthesia. You may require additional treatments, done at 1-2 month intervals. Although there is documented skin tightening with the injection, some patients also choose to have a treatment to tighten the skin under the chin, for even more improvement. Initially in Tucson, Kybella ™ will be available exclusively at Skin Spectrum, selected as a designated national training center. The treatment has been very well received by physicians and thousands of patients in early studies. CoolSculpting ® is a safe, eff ective way to eliminate fat without having liposuction. We treat the outer thigh bulge on many of our patients and they are delighted with their smoother contour and better fi t of their clothes. The new CoolSmooth Pro applicator cuts saddlebag treatment time in half and is available in Tucson exclusively at our body sculpting center, Body by Skin Spectrum. Our dual systems additionally shorten the treatment time. Jody Comstock, M.D. Tina Pai, M.D. Faiyaaz Kalimullah, M.D. ® © 2014 Skin Spectrum 520.797.8885 6127 N.
