Fat-melting treatment can help with arm flab
CINCINNATI (WKRC) - The newest fat-melter approved to treat fat that can form on your back can also treat fat on the back of your arms.
It's called Kybella. Dr. Jon Mendelsohn with Advanced Cosmetic Surgery and Laser Center says it's deoxycholic acid, which is a naturally-occurring bile acid that helps emulsify fat.
Dr. Medelsohn says it's now also also being used to fight the fat on the back of your arm.
"The caution is you want to make sure, if you're talking about arm fat, that it truly is fat that you are dealing with and not extra skin," he said.
The Kybella injection is about $600 a vial, and most people need at least two for full treatment. It is not covered by medical insurance plans.
