Fat Reduction Q & A

What is fat reduction?

Fat reduction is one of the many aesthetic services offered at Metroderm DC: Medical, Laser, and Aesthetic Dermatology Center. The dermatology practice takes a patient-centered approach to care and offers many innovative treatments to help you look and feel your best.

The practice uses various tools to get rid of unwanted pockets of fat from many areas of your body without surgery or downtime. 

What are the types of fat reduction treatments?

Metroderm DC: Medical, Laser, and Aesthetic Dermatology Center has many advanced fat reduction tools. For body contouring, they use:

WarmSculpting™ with SculpSure®

WarmSculpting with SculpSure is a noninvasive body contouring tool that uses laser energy to heat and destroy fat cells without damaging any other cells or tissue. 

The dermatology practice uses the SculpSure device for fat reduction on many areas of the body, including the arms, abdomen, buttocks, and thighs. WarmSculpting with SculpSure can also get rid of fat under the chin. 

Kybella® 

The dermatologists at Metroderm DC: Medical, Laser, and Aesthetic Dermatology Center also use Kybella injections to get rid of extra fat under the chin. Kybella contains synthetic deoxycholic acid, which is a substance that helps break down and metabolize fat. 

During treatment, your dermatologist injects the medication into the fat under your chin. The active ingredient destroys fat cells and improves your facial profile. 

Venus Freeze™

Venus Freeze is a skin tightening tool that uses radiofrequency energy to tighten and lift your skin. Metroderm DC: Medical, Laser, and Aesthetic Dermatology Center uses the skin tightening tool to reduce circumferential fat and the appearance of cellulite. 

Venus Freeze can treat many areas of the body, including the arms, abdomen, thighs, buttocks, neck, and face. 

Am I a candidate for fat reduction?

When you visit Metroderm DC: Medical, Laser, and Aesthetic Dermatology Center, your dermatologist conducts an in-depth clinical evaluation to determine if you’re a candidate for fat reduction treatments. 

Though body contouring gets rid of unwanted fat and improves your body shape, it’s not a weight loss treatment. The ideal candidate for fat reduction should be at or close to their goal weight, eat a healthy diet, and engage in regular exercise.
