Find out how this fat-targeting treatment could improve your face and body.

Most people are dissatisfied with some area of their body that just seems to hold on to a little excess fat. Whether you hate the flab on your arms or bulges under your bra, our Mt. Arlington, NJ, dermatologists have a simple injectable treatment that could finally get rid of this unwanted fat and leave you with smooth, shapelier results. Visit one of our offices in the Mt. Arlington, Bridgewater, or Morristown, NJ, areas.

What is Kybella?

This cosmetic injectable contains deoxycholic acid, a molecule that is naturally occurring within the body that helps to break down fat. When Kybella is administered, this formula will destroy and absorb the fat cells to get rid of unwanted and stubborn bulges. This is a great option for those who want to get rid of small areas of unwanted fat but don’t want to undergo surgery to do it.

Where can Kybella be administered?

This treatment is most often used to treat double chins or excessive fat under the chin, providing tighter and more contoured results. Of course, our Mt. Arlington, NJ, team can administer Kybella in other areas such as around the bra line, armpits, back, or buttock.

How many treatment sessions are required to achieve the maximum results?

Most people will require anywhere from 2-4 sessions to see the best results. Unlike liposuction and other body shaping treatments, Kybella doesn’t require any downtime and it only takes minutes to administer.

While there is a slight stinging sensation when the injectable is administered, our dermatologists can numb the area prior so you won’t feel any discomfort. The treated area may be sore and a little red right after but this should go away quickly. We will also provide you with at-home care instructions for how to reduce discomfort or swelling.

How long will my results last?

Once you get Kybella, results are considered permanent as long as you maintain a healthy weight.

Are you interested in getting Kybella to treat excess fat or to contour your jawline? If so, the team at Affiliated Dermatologists is proud to provide Kybella and other cosmetic treatments to the Mt. Arlington, Bridgewater, Morristown, NJ, areas. To schedule a consultation with us, simply call (973) 267-0300 today.

Most of us are familiar with warts, but may not know much about them in practice. Sometimes it can be hard to identify whether the growth we're concerned about is indeed a wart or not. Over-the-counter and at-home removal methods may not be as effective as desired and some carry inherent risks if they're not appropriately performed. So it's always a good idea to turn to a dermatologist to learn about the possible treatment options, which will vary depending on the type of wart. Learn more by contacting the professionals of Affiliated Dermatologists and Dermatologic Surgeons in Mt. Arlington, Bridgewater, Morristown, NJ.

Understanding Warts

An important thing to know about warts is that they are typically harmless and many will simply go away all on their own. But this can take time and although are often merely unsightly they can also be itchy and sometimes even painful.

Warts occur as a result of contracting a strain of the human papillomavirus (HPV) and they can spread by contact. So it's important to leave the wart alone, to not touch it, or let others do so. Picking at it may worsen the problem.

Over-the-counter products can often treat mild conditions but you should still check in with your dermatologist to be completely sure that what you're treating is indeed a wart, or if the growth is painful or is in an area where it impedes certain physical activities. Or if you just want to be sure that you'll be rid of it.

Dermatologist in Mt. Arlington, Bridgewater, Morristown, NJ

Your dermatologist will first verify that the growth is indeed a wart and then may prescribe either topical medication as a conservative treatment. But they can also employ elements such as acids and freezing therapy, or even surgically remove it if necessary. What type of treatment will depend on a variety of factors so it's important to come into the office.
