PCDC (Injectable fat dissolver)
Phosphatidylcholine deoxycholate (PCDC), similar to Kybella, injections are delivered into targeted treatment areas to dissolve stubborn fat. The most commonly treated areas are double chin, abdominal fat, love handles, bra fat, and more.
What to expect during the treatment:
PCDC will be administered in a series of injections using a very small needle. This procedure takes as little as 20 minutes with minimal downtime.
What to expect after the treatment:
The most common side effects include swelling around the injection area, bruising, tenderness, itching, and redness. This typically resolves over the next few days but may be tender for up to two weeks. Do not massage or apply pressure for 24 hours after the procedure. Ice packs may be used for comfort.
Is it for me?
If you have any stubborn fat that won’t budge and do not want to go under the knife, you may be a great candidate. Typically, 3-5 sessions are needed, 4 weeks apart. While there are no official studies that evaluated the safety of PCDC in pregnant women, we would rather err on the side of caution and treat you when you are no longer pregnant or nursing.
