KYBELLA® is the first and only FDA- approved injectable treatment to assist in the appearance of fat below the chin, otherwise known as a “double chin.” KYBELLA® works by destroying the fat cells in the submental chin area, and once those cells are destroyed they cannot return. The active ingredient is composed of a naturally occurring substance already in our bodies called, deoxycholic acid.
If you are bothered by submental fullness, this could be the right treatment for you.
Most patients will experience visible results in 2 to 4 treatment sessions. KYBELLA® will be injected into the fat under your chin using multiple injections. Up to 6 treatment sessions may be administered spaced no less than one month apart.
BOTOX® Cosmetic or botulinum toxin is a non-surgical injection to temporarily reduce the appearance of wrinkles and lines in and around the frown lines, forehead, eyes, facial creases and bands in the neck.

Dysport® is a prescription injection for temporary improvement in the look of moderate to severe frown lines between the eyebrows. The results last between 3 to 4 months.

Belotero® is a hylaronic dermal filler that has a soft cohesive gel consistency. This provides the physician flexibility to treat fine lines and nasolabial folds. The effects of Belotero® last six months or more.
Juvederm®/Juvederm Ultra Plus®
As we age our skin reduces production of a naturally hydrating component called hyaluronic acid.

Juvederm® injectable gel can last up to one year with only one treatment.

Juvederm Volbella XC
The newest addition to the Juvederm family for 2016 and FDA approved is Juvederm Volbella XC. It is meant to be used in the lips and in perioral lines to increase lip fullness and soften the appearance of lines around the mouth. Juvederm Volbella XC is formulated with Vycross technology. This technology “blends different molecular weights of hyaluronic acid which contributes to the gel’s duration.” The Vycross technology was first debuted in 2013 by Allergan and has become the leading technology for facial fillers. In clinical studies, at the 90 day mark over 80% of people injected reported greater fullness in their lips and over 96% reported overall satisfaction.
Soft tissue fillers are injected into the skin. The results are immediate; however, they are temporary.
