Kybella is a specialized injectable treatment designed to remove fat around the chin. Instead of using fat removal procedures like liposuction, your medical provider can expertly inject the treatment solution into the fat, and melt it away over time.
The Kybella treatment is a revolutionary approach for those who would like to get rid of a double chin, and was approved by the FDA in 2015.
How Kybella Works
The active ingredient in Kybella is deoxycholic acid, which is naturally present in the human body and plays an important role in managing fats. However, when used in Kybella, this acid works to safely break down the membranes of fat cells. As the fat cells are destroyed, the body’s natural processes remove them from the treatment area.
It is important to note that this process is different from losing weight. When an individual loses weight, the fat cells shrink; leading to a reduction in overall visible volume. However, Kybella permanently destroys the fat cells at the treatment site, thus achieving results that are virtually permanent (unless there is a big change in your lifestyle and dietary habits that cause the remaining fat cells to expand significantly).
Botox® is a great way to rejuvenate certain parts of the face quickly and relatively painlessly.
Do you want to get rid of wrinkles, but surgery seems scary? Recent technological advancements are making it possible to take years off of your appearance during a one hour appointment.
Juvéderm® is a smooth consistency gel made of hyaluronic acid-a naturally occurring substance in your skin that helps to add volume and hydration. Your healthcare professional eases Juvéderm® injectable gel under the skin to instantly restore your skin's volume and smooth away facial wrinkles and folds, like your "smile lines" or "parentheses" (nasolabial folds-the creases that run from the bottom of your nose to the corners of your mouth).
What is JUVÉDERM VOLUMA™ XC injectable gel?
JUVÉDERM VOLUMA™ XC injectable gel is the first and only filler FDA-approved to instantly add volume to the cheek area. It gives you a subtle lift, helping to restore contour and a more youthful profile, for up to 2 years, in patients over the age of 21. It's different than JUVÉDERM® XC and works on a different area of the face. JUVÉDERM® XC smoothes out moderate to severe wrinkles and folds around the nose and mouth, like parentheses. JUVÉDERM VOLUMA™ XC, however, adds volume to the cheek area.
