    Experts note the biggest impacts to derm in 2015




    Draw for male demographic

    Jeanine B. Downie, M.D., director, Image Dermatology, Montclair, N.J.: Specifically for Kybella, we are extremely excited by all the new male and female patients that [treatment] is pulling into our practices. It is consistent, it works well and the patients are delighted with the results. In my opinion, this is the most valuable development in dermatology this past year because it targets and eradicates fat cells. As Americans waistlines are expanding, we need help!

    David Bank, M.D., director, The Center for Dermatology, Cosmetic and Laser Surgery in Mount Kisco, N.Y., agrees: Probably the most interesting/valuable development in 2015 was the approval of Kybella. … it has a great appeal for the men, as well as the women, because, just like their female counterparts, men can be in good shape, yet genetically have that fat pad/pocket in that submental area. As this treatment is non-surgical with relatively low downtime, it is a really popular treatment. Winter is also the time to have these treatments, as with everyone wearing turtlenecks and scarves…. This treatment is also permanent, which is a great point for men.
