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!

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.

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!

The Dynamic Duo – Kybella + Thermage

The chin, neck, and the area in-between can tell a lot about our age. “Double chins” are often a curse to many women and men whether they are slim, have extra weight, old, or young – it really is a common problem. The technical term is submental fullness and can really make us look older and heavier than we really are.

Just 3 common reasons for excessive submental fullness:

Our first thought is to get rid of the fat. We have read through many forums where women lose weight but their chin and neck area continue to look the same. They have tried dieting, creams, chin and neck exercises – most without the results they had hoped for. The next option is to remove the fat with alternative treatments (like Kybella which is our FAVORITE!). Kybella is a prescription medicine that can literally melt the fat away. This is a great solution, but unless you have amazing skin elasticity (which some very lucky individuals do), you could be left with another problem…turkey neck!

Don’t worry! We have treatments for that too! Advancements in the beauty world have given us some great options like Thermage – the revolutionary treatment for tightening sagging and loose skin. We seriously cannot talk about Thermage enough. The results have been amazing and life changing.  Instead of having that extra skin removed, Thermage uses radio-frequency to strengthen the collagen in your skin. It also helps to get rid of lines and wrinkles! SIGN US UP!!!

So, now what does this mean for someone who needs both treatments? It may sound like a lot of work, and a little scary. We agree, at first glance it may seem that way, but let us assure you that this is a great alternative to going under the knife. It’s a non-invasive replacement to lipo-suction and a nip/tuck of the skin. In just a few sessions you can have the fat removed to reshape your jawline/profile and then look more youthful by tightening and firming the skin in and around those areas. We are IN LOVE with modern technology!

The best plan of attack is to talk with a professional first. Call us today or book your consultation online and meet with one of our doctors who will analyze your problem areas and come up with the best plan to ensure the best results.
