Non-surgical Submental Fat Reduction

Kybella

General Description

KYBELLA is a prescription medication used in adults to improve physical appearance, and the profile of moderate to severe fat under the chin. This procedure is also known under the name of double chin.  

Procedures

The synthetic deoxycholic acid is an active ingredient in Kybella. This  acid is a natural molecule in the body which helps to break down and absorb dietary fats. When it is injected into the fat under the chin, fat cells are destroyed, resulting in a noticeable reduction of fat under the chin. Once destroyed, these cells can no longer store or accumulate fat, therefore, no further treatment is expected once the esthetic goal is reached.

Before starting treatment, the health care specialist will examine the area under and around the patient’s chin to determine if KYBELLA is the right product for the case. Your specialist will then put into practice the treatment to the amount of fat under the chin and the cosmetic goals.

Treatment is done by a KYBELLA trained healthcare specialist. At each treatment, the individual will receive multiple small injections under your chin, with the injection process taking 15-20 minutes.The exact number of injections will depend on the patient’s fat amount under the chin and the desired profile.

How many treatment sessions are needed?

Everyone’s chin profile is different, therefore the number of treatments varies from patient to patient. Upon consultation with us, the healthcare specialist will help you determine the quantity of treatment sessions and distribution of the patient’s submental fat depending on the personal treatment goals. 

Each treatment session is administered at least 1 month apart and should not receive more than 6 treatments. In clinical studies, 59% of patients received 6 treatments.

Post-recovery and results

After treatment, the patient should expect swelling and redness. May also experience bruising, pain and numbness. This usually lasts less than 5 days,  the most severe swelling could be during the first two days, and it can last up to 14 days in some cases.

You should not do any  strenuous activities during the 3 days following the treatment, in just one week the patient begins to see the results and obtains the desired appearance. 

Mesotherapy

Agnes RF

General Description

Agnes RF is a unique non-surgical radiofrequency (RF) platform that can sculpt and contour the face, neck, chin and other small areas of the body. This treatment creates more youthful-looking skin by stimulating collagen and elastin production, providing unparalleled, long-lasting results without the need for surgery.

As a stand-alone treatment or used in combination with other modalities, Agnes RF provides the precision needed to customize results for patients of all ages and skin types.  

Procedures

The precision of the Agnes RF system is in the needles. With 9 separate types of single or triple needles, the cosmetic provider can customize the necessary treatment that the patient  simply can’t get with any other microneedle devices.

RF energy generates a tissue response without damaging the epidermis, causing localized injury that the body replaces with new tissue. This makes the skin look lifted and much smoother. 

In Acne treatment the isolated needle tips also penetrate the sebaceous glands that cause cystic acne, altering the structure of the gland and closing it, improving your complexion and reducing pore size.

For under-eye bags or wrinkles, it enhances tissues that other procedures, such as neurotoxins or dermal fillers, cannot effectively treat, reshapes intraorbital fat, strengthens the orbicularis muscle and tightens the skin to reduce under-eye puffiness for a more alert and refreshed appearance. Wrinkles around the eyes diminish as collagen fibers renew and grow.

If the patient is concerned about melting jawline, jowls or lower cheeks, this treatment sculpts the jawline by reducing fat in the neck and jowl area while tightening the skin.

How many treatment sessions are needed?

Most patients do very well with one session. However, a consultation is necessary to determine if the patient is a good candidate for treatment and the number of sessions needed.

Post-recovery and Results

After receiving Agnes RF, there may be some bruising and pinpoint crusting, which can be treated with an ice pack to reduce swelling or discomfort, and do not forcefully touch or rub the treated area. For acne treatments, the individual can expect mild redness for up to three days, and can resume the normal makeup routine after 3 days. Avoid deep exfoliation or retinol products for 7 to 10 days after treatment. For deep wrinkles and eye bags, the patient can expect recovery time to last up to two weeks.

Most patients experience immediate results with visibly smoother and softer skin. Because the growth of new collagen and elastin fibers takes time. The results will continue to improve to measurable levels within 2 to 3 months, peaking at around 6 months. For acne sufferers, it may take 1-2 months for results to begin to show improvement. With a series of 2-3 treatments, the results will continue for up to a year or more. For those treating the jawline, your results may appear within 1 to 2 months and continue to improve as the body’s natural metabolic process eliminates the disrupted fat cells.
