The active ingredient in KYBELLA® is synthetic deoxycholic acid. Deoxycholic acid is a naturally occurring molecule in the body that aids in the breakdown and absorption of dietary fat. When injected into the fat beneath the chin, KYBELLA® destroys fat cells, and once destroyed, these cells can no longer store or accumulate fat. This results in a noticeable reduction in fullness under the chin, revealing an improved chin profile.
Your specialist will create a tailored treatment plan based on your chin profile. At each treatment, you will be given multiple small injections under your chin. You can receive up to 6 treatment sessions, spaced at least 1 month apart. Many patients experience visible results in 1 KYBELLA® treatment with an average treatment plan being 2 to 4 KYBELLA® treatments. 59% of patients received 6 treatments in clinical studies.
Your cost not only includes the price of the product, but more importantly, the skill and expertise of the healthcare professional who is administering your treatment. Look for someone who is licensed and trained and has experience treating patients with KYBELLA®. It is important to find an experienced specialist who will take the time to understand your treatment goals and develop a treatment plan that is right for you.

Sculptra is an FDA-approved injectable that helps gradually replace lost collagen. As a poly-L-lactic acid (PLLA) collagen stimulator, Sculptra helps restore the deep, underlying structure of the skin to diminish facial wrinkles. Sculptra works with your body within the deep dermis to help revitalize collagen production and help restore your skin’s inner structure and volume.
Sculptra is made with biocompatible, biodegradable, synthetic material called poly-L-lactic acid, which is gradually and naturally absorbed by the body and helps to rebuild lost collagen through a series of treatments administered by a trained specialist.
The specialist injects Sculptra into the appropriate dermal plane where strands of collagen support your skin's structure. Over time, Sculptra helps the body reproduce lost collagen. The number of injection appointments and the number of injections per appointment vary from person to person, depending on how much collagen has been lost. On average, three injection appointments are needed over a period of a few months.
Sculptra can be used for a wide variety of issues. When treating the face, a good rule of thumb is a vial per decade (5 vials if you are 50 years old). The number of injection appointments and the number of injections per appointment vary from person to person, depending on how much collagen has been lost. On average, three injection appointments are needed over a period of a few months.
Collagen is a fibrous protein in the deep dermis that gives skin structure and supports the functions of elastin and hyaluronic acid (HA), which helps maintain the skin's shape, while keeping it smooth and hydrated. A healthy supply of collagen makes for a more youthful-looking complexion.
Collagen is the most common protein in the body that is used to form a framework to support cells and tissue.
Neuromodulators target one of the underlying causes of frown lines, crow’s feet and forehead lines — the repeated muscle contractions from frowning, squinting, smiling and raising the eyebrows over the years. Your provider will inject these muscles to temporarily reduce muscle activity. You will begin to notice your wrinkles temporarily look better.
Three percent of patients experienced eyelid drooping in the frown lines studies, one percent of patients experienced eyelid swelling in the crow's feet studies, and one percent of patients experienced brow drooping in the forehead lines studies. These are not all of the possible serious side effects of BOTOX® Cosmetic. Please see the Important Safety Information including Boxed Warning and Medication Guide and talk to your specialist.
You may begin to notice results within 24 to 48 hours, with full results in 14 days, with results lasting up to four months for moderate to severe frown lines. Remember that results vary from patient to patient though, so your provider will plan your next appointment based on your results and aesthetic goals.
Botox is FDA approved for aesthetic use in moderate to severe wrinkles in the forehead, between the brows and crow's feet. Botox & Dysport can also be used in other advanced areas for other medical and aesthetic purposes. Discuss your areas of concern with your medical provider to customize your treatment plan.
Dermal Fillers are used as a non-surgical treatment to restore lost volume in the face. They are made from a modified form of hyaluronic acid (HA), to smooth lines and enhance your cheeks & lips. HA is a naturally occurring substance found in your skin. As you age, you start to lose HA, which causes the skin to lose structure and volume, contributing to the formation of wrinkles and folds.
Temporary side effects associated with the injection include localized pain, inflammation, tenderness, swelling, redness and or bleeding/bruising. The mild redness and swelling at the injection site is temporary. Other side effects may occur, talk to your health care provider prior to receiving dermal fillers.
This injection treatment can be used for virtually all facial areas. It can improve the look of scarring (including ones caused by acne) and can be used to smooth creases and lines around the nose, mouth, and cheeks. It can also be used for facial contouring and to enhance the lips. In some circumstances, Fillers can be used under the eyes or in your temples to restore lost volume.
Bruising is an expected side effect of any injectable procedure. Here are a few tips to help minimize your bruising risk:
