Kybella

What is KYBELLA2017-11-27T22:21:07+00:00

KYBELLA® is a prescription medicine and is the only FDA-approved injectable treatment used in adults to improve the appearance and profile of moderate to severe fat below the chin (submental fat), also called “double chin.”

It is not known if KYBELLA® is safe and effective for use outside of the submental area or in children less than 18 years of age.

What is submental fullness?
Submental fullness is a gathering of excess fat beneath the chin, commonly known as “double chin.” It can be something you’ve had your whole life due to genetics, or start to appear as you get older or if you gain weight.

How does KYBELLA work?2017-11-27T22:21:18+00:00

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.

How long will results last with KYBELLA?2017-11-27T22:21:27+00:00

When injected into fat under the chin, KYBELLA® causes the destruction of fat cells. Once destroyed, those cells cannot store or accumulate fat. After reaching your desired aesthetic, further treatment is not expected.

B12 Injections

What exactly is Vitamin B12?2017-12-07T16:21:54+00:00

Vitamin B12 is a water soluble vitamin that plays an important role in many tasks such as forming red blood cells, maintaining the central nervous system, and other bodily functions. It is one of the most important vitamins because it performs essential functions like assisting in keeping a healthy blood flow and controlling key enzymes in the body. It is generally found in many similar foods and food products.

What are the benefits of B12?2017-12-07T16:42:54+00:00

B12 can help with things like improving your metabolism, helping your memory, and boosting your focus and concentration. Vitamin B12 injections may help you detoxify your body, increase red blood cell production and maintain a healthy liver. It can also be used to aid with diabetes, male infertility, and osteoporosis, as well as, help prevent vitamin B12 deficiency.

What is a Vitamin B12 deficiency?2017-12-07T16:33:50+00:00

Vitamin B12 deficiency occurs when there are low levels of Vitamin B12 in your blood. Some of the symptoms may include: depression, irritability, anemia, reduced heart function, and decreased fertility.

What do vitamin B12 injections do for you?2017-12-07T16:18:28+00:00

Cyanocobalamin is a man-made form of vitamin B12 used to treat low levels (deficiency) of this vitamin. Vitamin B12 helps your body use fat and carbohydrates for energy and make new protein. It is also important for normal blood, cells, and nerves.

Why should I get a B12 injection and not just a pill?2017-12-07T18:43:30+00:00

The stomach acids that aid in the natural breakdown of food also breakdown vitamin B12. The body will only absorb a small amount of the nutrient from a pill. In addition, as you get older your body’s ability to absorb nutrients through digestion continually decreases. In fact, many adults are unable to absorb Vitamin B12 into their bodies at all! Injections provide a direct method of supplying your body with the necessary Vitamin B12.

Botox

How does Botox work?2017-11-27T22:15:40+00:00

BOTOX® Cosmetic (onabotulinumtoxinA) targets one of the underlying causes of frown lines and crow’s feet—the repeated muscle contractions from frowning and squinting over the years. BOTOX® Cosmetic temporarily reduces this muscle activity so you’ll begin to notice a visible smoothing of these lines. For temporary improvement of moderate to severe crow’s feet, your doctor will inject BOTOX® Cosmetic into the muscle surrounding the sides of your eyes—called the orbicularis oculi muscles. For temporary improvement of moderate to severe frown lines, your doctor will inject BOTOX® Cosmetic into 2 muscles—the corrugator and procerus muscles.

How long does a Botox treatment take?2017-11-27T22:15:53+00:00

The treatment takes approximately 10 minutes and requires minimal downtime or recovery—it’s often called a “lunchtime procedure.”

When will I see results with BOTOX?2017-11-27T22:16:31+00:00

You may begin to notice results within 24 to 48 hours for moderate to severe frown lines, with results lasting up to 4 months.

How long is the recovery time after BOTOX treatment?2017-11-27T22:16:43+00:00

After your treatment, you can resume your day. There is minimal downtime and your specialist may give you specific aftercare instructions.

Will BOTOX® Cosmetic make me look like I’ve had work done?2017-11-27T22:27:49+00:00

BOTOX® Cosmetic is a technique-sensitive treatment. You should not lose the ability to show expression when you are treated by someone who is licensed, trained, and a medical expert in facial anatomy. It is important to talk to your specialist about the results you want from treatment.

Do men receive BOTOX® Cosmetic treatment?2017-11-27T22:17:42+00:00

Yes. BOTOX® Cosmetic has also been clinically evaluated in male patients. In clinical studies for moderate to severe frown lines, 17.5% of patients treated with BOTOX® Cosmetic were men. In the clinical studies for moderate to severe crow’s feet, male patients comprised approximately 10% of patients treated with BOTOX® Cosmetic.

According to the American Society for Aesthetic Plastic Surgery, 10% of all cosmetic procedures performed in the United States in 2014 were on men—that is more than 1 million cosmetic procedures. The number of cosmetic procedures for men increased by 273% from 1997 to 2014.

Does Botox treatment hurt?2017-11-27T22:28:35+00:00

Some patients report that being injected with BOTOX ® Cosmetic (onabotulinumtoxinA) feels like a pinch. Your provider may use ice to numb the treatment area. If you are concerned about discomfort, your provider may apply a topical numbing cream before administering your treatment.

IV Vitamin Therapy

What is IV vitamin therapy?2017-11-27T22:20:43+00:00

If you’re like most people, you probably don’t consume your daily dose of vitamins and minerals, let alone experience their valuable benefits. Nutrient IV Therapy is a safe and effective way to receive natural vitamins, minerals, and amino acids direct to the bloodstream. The 30 to 45-minute session enhances your energy, improves your overall mood, and helps prevent future health conditions caused by stress, malnutrition, and dehydration.

How soon should I feel the effects of my IV Treatment?2017-12-06T18:58:41+00:00

Depending on your nutritional and hydration status you may see dramatic effects after the first IV. People who get IV’s regularly will feel less dramatic effects as their body starts to obtain optimal hydration and nutritional balance.

Who should or shouldn’t get IV Treatments?2017-12-06T18:58:17+00:00

If you retain fluids, have kidney problems, or suffer from certain health conditions, you should not engage in nutrient IV Therapy. We always recommend that you check with your primary care physician if you’re unsure. However, anyone with a healthy history can safely obtain its benefits.

Is there any potential reaction to receiving a nutrient IV while on other medications?2017-12-06T18:58:28+00:00

Negative reactions are slim to none, since this procedure is proven to be advantageous and safe. Either way, everyone is monitored and if some discomfort begins, we will simply monitor you over time and stop if necessary. Most people respond favorably to the therapy, feeling energized and alert from the beginning.
