Kybella injectable treatment is a special formulation of deoxycholic acid designed to break down and destroy fat cells underneath the chin for adults with moderate to severe submental fat. Because the acid has a strong preference for fat cells, it leaves the surrounding tissue unaffected. This new FDA-approved treatment has the entire cosmetic community excited for the possibilities.
A single treatment of Kybella consists of a maximum of 50 injections spaced one centimeter apart. Patients can receive these treatments up to six times, with intervals spaced out at least one month apart.
Voluma XC is the latest soft-tissue filler comprised of hyaluronic acid. It is specifically designed to restore volume in areas of loss. San Francisco’s Dr. Evan Ransom suggests this injectable as a cheaper, non-surgical option for those looking for a subtle lift. As we age, facial fat loss, gravity, and diminished skin elasticity all lead to a narrower, less youthful look.
Voluma XC can restore balance to the face and a more youthful profile for up to two years by restoring areas that have lost volume due to aging or extreme weight loss. The result is a softer and more youthful appearance.
Voluma is used differently from the other Juvéderm products, such as Juvéderm XC, in that it focuses on facial volume rather than wrinkle correction, specifically in the cheek area. (more…)
