The holidays are coming, and we love to look our best as we reunite with family and friends for festivities. Our ‘Lift your Look for the Holidays’ Special, available this month only, includes our Lift & Contour Combination Treatment Package of Juvederm Voluma and Kybella. Let’s discuss how these treatments offered by Dr. Chad Glazer will help you feel ready for the holidays and beyond.
Remember the days of our childhood and teen years, when we had nice plump cheeks? As we age, we lose the collagen in our face that is responsible for our youthful appearance. Voluma is an injectable filler created by Allergan to give us back that volume in our cheeks. It is the first and only FDA approved filler used to treat volume loss in the mid-face, and it lasts up to two years. Voluma is made of hyaluronic acid, a substance naturally produced by the body to support skin structure. This filler is designed to plump, lift, and volumize. By filling the cheeks, it can also create a lift to the area below the cheeks potentially reducing the appearance of jowls and nasolabial folds. Voluma is premixed with lidocaine, a local anesthetic, so the treatment typically causes little to no discomfort. Like any other injectable filler the most common side effects include swelling, stinging, bruising, or bleeding at the injection sight.
As opposed to Voluma adding volume, Kybella is used to decrease ‘double-chin.’ Kybella is the first and only FDA approved injectable treatment that destroys fat cells under the chin to improve your profile. Whether it be from aging, genetics, or weight gain, Kybella treats fat along the chin and jowls by permanently reducing the fat cells. Kybella is a nonsurgical treatment that consists of injections into the fat with deoxycholic acid. These destroyed fat cells will no longer be able to store fat, thus permanent results. It is common to experience some swelling, and possibly some numbness or bruising. These side effects are temporary and resolve on their own. Dr. Glazer will give you detailed post-treatment instructions at your appointment.
In combination these treatments lift and contour. Voluma lifts and volumizes sagging cheeks. Kybella sculpts and contours your chin and neckline by reducing the fat under the chin and along the jowls. These treatments are non-surgical, non-invasive, and involve very minimal-to-no-downtime.
