Look Younger with Kybella and PDO Threads

Loose, sagging skin and a double chin are among the most common cosmetic concerns that people have as they age. You may think that plastic surgery is the only way to resolve these concerns. But, thanks to innovative, non-surgical solutions like Kybella and PDO threads, surgery is no longer needed to achieve a rejuvenated look. 

What is Kybella?

Kybella is an FDA-approved, injectable treatment for submental fullness (or, as it’s more commonly called, a double chin). This injection features deoxycholic acid as the main ingredient, which permanently breaks down and removes excess fat in the chin and neck area. It also keeps cells from storing and accumulating fat in the future.  Continue reading “Look Younger with Kybella and PDO Threads”

What Areas Can Be Treated with Kybella?

Treated with KybellaKybella is a popular injectable treatment for submental fullness, which is more commonly referred to as a double chin. Since the fat cells in this area are often unresponsive to diet and exercise, Kybella can make a big difference for women seeking a more elegant neckline. 

While Kybella is currently only approved by the FDA to target fat cells beneath the skin, it may be effective in other areas of the body. Here, we’ll discuss how Kybella can treat stubborn fat and help patients achieve a slimmer look. 

How Does Kybella Work?

The main ingredient in Kybella is deoxycholic acid. Deoxycholic acid is naturally occurring in the body and functions by breaking down and absorbing fat. When deoxycholic acid is injected directly into areas of excess fat in Kybella treatment, it eliminates the existing fat cells while preventing the future storage and accumulation of fat. So, it works as a permanent solution to submental fat. Patients usually receive two to six Kybella treatments within six months for the best results.  Continue reading “What Areas Can Be Treated with Kybella?”

Banish Saggy Jowls with Kybella

Saggy Jowls TampaAre you struggling with saggy jowls? Jowls typically appear as a result of lost skin elasticity due to age. The skin naturally produces less collagen and elastin with age, leading to sagging and lost definition. That said, factors including genetics, sun exposure, weight changes, and making certain facial expressions can also contribute to the development of jowls and submental fullness or excess fat under the chin. 

When it comes to eliminating saggy jowls, there are multiple treatment options available to you. That said, Kybella is the gold standard for non-surgical jowl treatments. With this advanced dermal filler, we can tighten and smooth out the skin on the jaw and neck, leading to a slimmer, more defined jawline.

Refine Your Neckline with Kybella and PDO Threads

A senior woman touching her neckThis time of year is perfect for layering styles, and many women have a lot of fun with different low-cut tops layered with gauzy scarves and sweaters. These styles allow you to shed layers as the weather changes throughout the day, but they can also make your neckline more visible than normal.

The neckline can be a difficult area to correct once the signs of aging start to set in. The neckline can become wrinkled or lose elasticity just like the skin on your face. If you have a chin waddle, double chin, or sagging jowls, these can all be corrected with this combined treatment. Continue reading “Refine Your Neckline with Kybella and PDO Threads”

Off Label use of Kybella for Fat Destruction in Other Body Areas Besides the Chin

When Kybella was launched in the United States for fat destruction in the submental fat of the chin, the hype around it was immense. KYBELLA ® (deoxycholic acid) injection is indicated for improvement in the appearance of moderate to severe convexity or fullness associated with submental fat in adults. While there are no approved uses of Kybella in other areas, there are plenty of off-label uses that are gaining some attention from injectors and their patients.

We know that Kybella destroys fat safely by killing the fat cells and allowing the body to absorb them, and the fat goes away forever. It is a non-surgical, minimally-invasive way to get rid of fat so why not try it in other body areas.
