Success with Kybella

We have talked about Kybella a few times on our blogs and clearly it is one of our favorite treatments! The science, benefits, and results are enough to create a believer but what about post procedure? What about before? Did you know that you can pair more than one procedure? Sometimes, with everything available out there, a treatment plan for your aesthetic goals can be a little overwhelming. Here, we offer some recommendations on maximizing the success of your Kybella treatment as well as how to combine  Kybella with other services for superior results. 


 Kybella treatments are non-invasive and have little to zero downtime. We recommend the following steps in order to keep it that way.

 Before your procedure 

  • To minimize bruising or bleeding, eliminate the use of Aspirin, Ibeuprophen, Ginko Biloba, Cod Liver Oil, Vitamin E and other fatty acids for about a week prior to treatment.
  • Consult with your doctor about medications you are taking.  
  • Avoid high sodium foods, sugary foods, alcohol, caffeine or any other substance that may induce swelling.  
  • Get your treatment 2-3 weeks before any major events as swelling may take a bit to subside completely.  


After your procedure 

  • Do not massage or rub the treatment area 
  • Ice is your best friend! Ice the area in 20-30-minute intervals for about 24 hours 
  • If possible sleep on your back for 3-5 days 
  • Avoid excessive sun and heat exposure for 3-5 days 


Talk to us about the following treatments to maximize your Kybella results!

Detox Facial – Kybella destroys fat cells and they then exit the body through the lymphatic system. Three to four weeks post treatment, we highly recommend a lymphatic facial massage. The “Detox Facial” offered by Beautique stimulates lymphatic drainage and detoxing. This relaxing and contouring facial can help speed up the Kybella process as well as give your face a beautiful glow AND release endorphins. Yes! We enjoy this facial so much that we blogged about. Check it out in the archives here: BLOG Archives: Lymphatic Facial Massage

Thermage – Whenever a portion of fat is removed from the body, the skin has to bounce back. Depending on factors such as age, skin elasticity, and collagen quality, our skin may not always bounce back the way we want it to. Sometimes, submental fullness is caused by excess skin itself. If Kybella rids your neck of fat but you still have excess skin, we recommend adding Thermage to tighten the area and stimulate collagen production. Thermage uses radio frequencies to stimulate collagen and shrink back the skin We recommend Thermage first so that you can get Kybella right away, but if you receive Kybella first then you would need to wait a couple of weeks before getting Thermage. We have written about this dynamic duo before! Destroy the fat and tighten up that skin with Kybella + Thermage – you can read more here BLOG Archives: The Dynamic Duo Kybella + Thermage

Ultra Slim or 3Deep – If you have excessive amount of fat under your chin, you can combine fat eliminating treatments if they are done in the correct way. For example, treat with Ultra Slim (light therapy fat destroyer) and then, after sufficient time, use Kybella to spot treat, or vise versa. Your beauty expert at Beautique can come up with the right plan for you in order to meet all of your goals. As you have probably guessed, we have blogged about UltraSlim too! Read more about it here: BLOG Archives: UltraSlim – Shed up to 2 Inches in an Hour!

Kybella’s success rate and efficiency in treating submental fat, make it one of the most valuable and successful treatments out there. If you have additional questions feel free to contact the spa. We’ve got answers! Contact Us

Who Benefits from Kybella?

Studies show that what humans perceive to be a youthful looking face include even skin tone, face shape, plump lips, firmness, and fuller cheeks that contrast with a narrower chin. The area between the chin and neck really get the brunt of the aging process as gravity naturally pulls the skin downward. The dreaded “double chin” can really affect our self-confidence as well as how old we look.  This occurs when a layer of fat below the chin sags, creating a secondary pad of skin and fat to take shape along the facial profile.  Known as submental fat or fullness, the extra fat under the chin affects many people.

The double chin is caused by several factors including:

  • Age
  • excess weight or obesity
  • genetics


Submental fullness can also be hereditary. Many individuals, both men and women, suffer from a hereditary predisposition to this issue, naturally storing fat and retaining water in this area. In fact, these factors can cause otherwise healthy weight people to appear overweight.

There are many things we can do to help diminish submental fat and sagging. Clearly losing weight would help, and special exercises that target the neck area are beneficial as well. But what about those who are predisposition to this? How easy is it for your double chin to come back?

Kybella offers an effective and alternative solution to this dilemma by eliminating the fat under your chin for good. You can read more about how it works on a previous blog post here (insert link). Kybella injections permanently remove submental fat creating a leaner silhouette and more prominent profile.



Who can benefit from Thermage?

  • Men & Women
  • Individuals who show their extra weight in the chin/neck area
  • Individuals who are predisposition to have a “double chin”
  • Those who show signs of aging in the cheeks and neck


Whether you are having trouble losing weight or double chins just run in your family, Kybella is the solution for you. The best part? Since Kybella destroys the fat cells, they can no longer store or accumulate fat resulting in permanent results.

What is Kybella?

In the last decade a revolutionary treatment has been studied, trialed, and FDA approved for literally, melting fat under the chin. Kybella is an injection treatment for submental fullness that rids the area under the chin of excess fat.

This sounds amazing right? Of course, it is easy to be skeptical as promises of fat elimination treatments have been around for years. However, Kybella is the FIRST FDA approved treatment for the appearance of submental fat (double chin). Understanding the science behind it is the first step.

How does Kybella work?

Deoxycholate acid, the main synthetic ingredient of Kybella, is an acid found in the stomach that digests and processes fat molecules for absorption. When injected into the fat beneath the chin, Kybella destroys fat cells, resulting in a noticeable reduction in fullness under the chin. The fat is then processed through the lymphatic system and exited out of the body with other natural waste. Once destroyed, these cells can no longer store or accumulate fat, so further treatment is not expected once you reach your desired aesthetic goal. Here is a quick video that explains this process:

The results speak for themselves. Find out more about whether Kybella is right for you by contacting our office today. If you have any questions or found this information helpful, comment on this article below.

Dr. Sanchez’s 40-Day HCG Program

We are told that true and lasting weight loss can be achieved through diet and exercise. Although we can’t deny that healthy eating habits and regular exercise gives us healthier bodies, but healthier habits don’t always equate to weight lose. So, what about those of us who have tried EVERYTHING to lose extra pounds and can’t? One thing we know for sure is that an efficient metabolism DOES ensure that those extra pounds are easier to shed and that they stay away.

Dr. Sanchez’s HCG Program can help you shed excess weight fast while resetting your metabolism to work more efficiently.

Here is how it works:

When women become pregnant, the human chorionic gonadotropin hormone or “HCG” is produced and it plays a role in many functions of the body during that time. Some of these functions benefit in natural weight loss and include:


  • Suppressed appetite
  • Encouraging the body into an anabolic state which slows muscle loss and promotes fat loss.
  • Stimulation of hormones that promote weight control such as the thyroid
  • Increased metabolic efficiency


HCG is now being used in combination with a clinically studied plan to help people lose up to a pound a day! The process not only sheds fat by utilizing stored nutrients in the body, but also reprograms the body to process food more efficiently. Here at Beautique, Dr. Sanchez provides a medically monitored program with proven results. Patients on the Beautique HCG Weight Loss Program can expect:

  • About a pound of weight loss per day.
  • Diminished hunger and appetite.
  • Increased energy levels and improved mental focus.
  • Loose fitting clothes and unplanned shopping trips.
  • A more confident you!


Let go of winter weight and get ready for a dress worthy spring! Shed 40 lbs. in 40 days.

If you would like to learn more, we invite you to book a free consultation at Beautique Medical Spa today. Right now, we are running an amazing special and invite you to check it out! This is the year to be fit and fabulous. Let Beautique show you how.

Evolution of Beauty: Body Contouring & Weight-Loss

Slimming down and shaping our bodies is probably one of the most sought-after desires within the world of aesthetic beauty. Diets, exercise, pills, machines, you name it and it has been tried for weight-loss and body contouring. Some individuals lose weight but have difficulty with targeted areas of the body while others have great shape but can’t lose extra pounds. There are also people who struggle with both.  We are all so different and require individualized methods to achieve desired results.  

Removal of fat and skin was first experimented with in the late 1800’s and has since lead to modern day procedures like “gastric bypass”, “tummy tucks” and “liposuction”. Surgical procedures like this are effective but come with serious risks and are not always permanent solutions. Alternative treatments were rampant in the early 1990’s. Creams, rubber garments, tonics for destroying yeast cells, cigarette smoking, and mechanical devises – all promising to melt fat away. All very questionable, yet some entertaining!

Fast forward to now, and we are lucky to have tested and proven options available to us. There ARE ways to get the results you want without undergoing unnecessary surgery and risking other health problems. Beautique Medical Spa offers some of the most effective, non-invasive, and lasting treatments. Along with those treatments is the expertise and knowledge of our staff to create individualized plans. If you have been struggling with stubborn fat, weight-loss failure, or problems with targeted areas of your body, we cannot wait to help you! You can visit our website or check out some of our past blog posts for more information – find links at the end of this post!

What You Really Lose With Traditional Dieting

You’re loving how you look! It took hard work, persistence, and self-control. That’s what dieting is all about. You walk a little taller and put more sass in your step. It feels great!

But then something happens after you reach your goal weight. If you’re like most people, your motivation slips. Not only does the weight come back, it brings a truckload of friends with it!

What happened? It’s actually very simple. Traditional dieting caused you to lose both fat and muscle. And while that looks good on the scales, losing muscle causes your metabolism to slow way down.

That’s why you gain back the weight you lost, and then some. Even worse, it takes a long time to rebuild the muscle you dieted away. Sound familiar?

It’s discouraging, yes, but now, thanks to the groundbreaking work of board certified physician, Sheri L. Emma, MD, traditional dieting just got a total makeover. Dr. Emma performed years of clinical studies on the use of HCG injections, a pro-hormone in the body that helps make more hormones.  She also included a very healthy diet and exercise. The results were astonishing!

You may recall that HCG injections have been a very controversial way of losing weight. Not any more. Dr. Emma’s study showed that while people lose about the same amount of weight with traditional dieting as they do with the updated HCG diet, there’s one incredible difference.

Her HCG patients keep the weight off!

You don’t lose weight faster with the HCG True Diet, you lose it differently. You’ll keep much more muscle while becoming leaner. At the same time, you’ll build a stronger metabolism, which helps you maintain your weight loss long after the diet is completed.

And yes, there are other HCG diets on the market that advocate the use of HCG drops, pills, and sprays for weight loss. Beware! Only HCG injections have been clinically proven for dramatic weight reduction. How dramatic? With HCG, you can lose up to a pound a day!

Not all HCG diets are created equally, and our clients lose more weight and keep it off thanks to the proprietary program Dr. Sanchez has created. Ready to learn more? Come in for a consult with us today. Get the weight off and keep it off. We can show you how!

Is A Restricted Calorie Diet Healthy And Safe?

Calorie restricted diets do work. However, without proper medical supervision, they can cause more problems than they solve. How? Any time you restrict your diet you run the risk of losing not only fat but muscle, too.

Your body doesn’t like that, and you gain the weight back, plus more. That’s why we don’t advocate traditional calorie-restricted diets. Instead, we use the physician supervised HCG True Diet.

Three Steps to Success

Step 1: Our experts place you on a customized calorie-restricted diet for 40 days. You learn how to choose your proteins, carbohydrates and vegetables for the healthiest restricted diet possible.

Step 2:  You will receive injections of HCG, a pro-hormone in your body that helps your body make more hormones. However, when used as a weight loss aid, HCG appears to suppress your appetite. And that’s what our clients report. It allows them to comfortably eat much less.

HCG injections burn the fat you already have stored but spares the muscle. That’s critical. When muscle is burned, rebound weight gain is bound to occur. Your body loves the HCG True Diet because it burns only stored fat.

That allows for a stronger metabolism. And that’s the key to keeping the weight off long term.

Step 3: A moderate amount of exercise is essential to the success of this program. Approaching a calorie-restricted diet this way accomplishes two weight loss goals:

With a physician supervised restricted diet you learn how to eat very healthy.
It’s a diet program that can be successful for the rest of your life.
The 40 days that you are on the diet is the springboard for a much healthier lifestyle. It allows you to embrace good health and healthy habits you will use for a lifetime.

With the HCG True Diet, the weight loss can be dramatic, as much as a pound a day. And unlike traditional weight loss diets, the weight stays off.

When was the last time a traditional diet could offer those benefits to you?

Permanently Lose at Least 2”of Fat in Just One Hour!


What would you say if I told you that you can burn 9600 and permanently lose 2″ of fat in under an hour? Sound too good to be true? Well, it’s not. You can actually lose weight:

• No diet or exercise
• No needles or surgery
• No pain or downtime

How is this possible? It’s a revolutionary new FDA-approved treatment called UltraSlim, and it’s available now.

UltraSlim is a non-invasive body slimming and skin rejuvenation light therapy system that treats targeted areas of the skin and underlying fats cells. This therapy emits a special type of red light which causes the skin to produce collagen and elastin, and reduces the size of subcutaneous fat accumulations. The collagen production results in smoother, younger-looking skin with less appearance of lines, wrinkles and dark spots. The elastin works with the collagen to tighten the skin, for a younger, firmer appearance.

Beautique Medical Spa, the valley’s premier medical spa, is excited to offer this amazing new therapy. With a single treatment that only last 32 minutes, women can lose an average of 3.5” from their waist, hips and thighs. Men lose an average of 3” from their chest and abdomen. In fact, over 98% of clients lose at least two inches of fat at their first visit. But UltraSlim isn’t just for the body. Facial treatments are also available. With a series of six, 20-minute sessions, clients can appear 10 to 15 years younger. Results are immediate, permanent and guaranteed!

The Science of UltraSlim

The UltraSlim red light therapy is referred to as “cold light,” since red light therapy operates at the cellular level and does not generate heat. There are no needles, no incisions, and no recovery time. The technology is based on modulating a specific type of red light. The modulated red light tricks the mitochondria in the nucleus of the fat cell into creating a transitory pore in the cell membrane, which allows fatty acids and triglycerides to escape into the interstitial space.

The liberated fat cell contents are then drained by the lymphatic system and processed by the liver as part of the body’s normal course of detoxification. The pore in the fat cell will close in about 48-72 hours and the liberated contents are expelled in the client’s stool over the next few days.

The UltraSlim Program

UltraSlim provides amazing results, but it’s not a license to increase your food intake. The program is designed to ensure that the bod is given every chance to process the fat.

Beautique’s Proprietary Program created by Dr. Sanchez includes:

Nutritional Supplements—Daily supplements aid in the natural detoxification process.

Lymphatic Stimulation—Daily light to moderate exercise help promote lymphatic system mobilization. Vibration therapy is also available and has been shown to achieve significant lymphatic stimulation.

Compression Garments—Wearing compression garments will also help the lymphatic system process the liberated fat and reshape the body.

Food Intake—A low-fat diet allows the kidneys, liver and lymphatic systems to more effectively purge the excess fat as it is converted to energy.

UltraSlim works for clients of all ages and skin types. However, results will vary. People with a higher metabolic rate are better able to excrete the fat cell contents and enjoy better results. While the therapy is perfectly safe and there are no reports of anyone experiencing any side effects or bad outcomes, UltraSlim should not be used by those who are pregnant or have active cancer, photosensitive conditions or compromised liver function. A physician should be consulted before beginning treatments.

The UltraSlim Difference

Traditional diets and exercise can take weeks and months to show results, which is incredibly frustrating for those who struggle with weight loss. UltraSlim can provide instant, and most important, permanent results. The achieved success of this program can provide a jumpstart to real lifestyle change to maintain overall health and body image.

The Beautique staff, led by Dr. Sanchez, is committed to helping their client’s achieve ultimate results. To schedule a free consultation to learn more about UltraSlim, call (956) 664-1234.
