Can you treat your double chin?

By | Kybella, Skin, Treatment

Many people feel self-conscious about the appearance of a “double chin.” This can be caused by excess fatty tissue in the upper neck, creating a less defined profile. While a double chin has traditionally been corrected surgically, Juvia now offers an injectable solution with Kybella.

Kybella works by treating excess fat through injections to the affected area. It is FDA-approved for the reduction of the excess fat under the chin. The active ingredient is deoxycholic acid, which occurs naturally in the body. When injected, it breaks down the fat in the neck. As this breaks down, it is then removed via metabolic processes. As this occurs, results become more apparent in the form of a more desirable neck and chin contour.

Kybella is injected with a very fine needle, and a numbing agent is applied before the injections. The entire process takes less than 30 minutes. Most patients require a series of two to four sessions to reach their optimal results. To create your personal treatment plan and goals, you can schedule a consultation with one of the Juvia medical professionals.

Recovery involves minimal downtime, although you may experience slight swelling, bruising and temporary numbness. These will general fade after the first few days after your session.

Sublime Skin Contouring for Younger Looking Skin

By | Skin

When it comes to effective treatments for younger looking skin, most people focus on the face. However, your neck, chest, hands, and arms can all give your age away, as well. Not to mention what happens to the skin on your abdomen after pregnancy or after weight loss. As you age, your skin becomes less supple and firm, and it begins to sag. You might think that you have to just live with the effects of aging on your skin, but that really isn’t true at all, thanks to a number of highly effective skin contouring procedures.

Forget Body Wraps

First of all, though, let’s talk about one contouring method that you should forget about entirely. Body wraps are ineffective at best, and at worst they can even be dangerous. These just compress and dehydrate your skin and cellulite cells to give you the appearance of a more contoured body. The results don’t last, and the effects on your skin can be really damaging.

Laser and Radiofrequency Contouring Really Work

If you’re looking for a skin contouring procedure that really does work, though, you cannot go wrong with laser or RF treatment. Laser procedures use focused, low-level laser light to heat the subdermal cells and promote collagen production. Over the days and weeks after a laser treatment, patients notice their skin starting to feel firm, supple, and youthful again, and they notice a significant drop in the appearance of cellulite, too.

Radiofrequency (RF) treatments work much the same way, but instead of laser light, they actually use radiofrequency to heat those cells. Whether you choose laser or RF treatment is largely up to you, your skin, and your goals for your appearance. Our board certified medical director and highly trained medical staff will be more than happy to discuss your options with you and help you choose the best procedure for you.

Cellulite Reduction and Dermal Fillers

At Juvia Med Spa, we also offer a few options for cellulite reduction, which also help contour, smooth, and tighten your skin, too. You can choose a laser treatment that will use heat to destroy cellulite cells, or you can choose a freezing treatment that breaks those cells up and allows your body to flush them away.

If you’re interested in contouring the skin on your face and neck, you can also opt for dermal fillers. For example, when you lose the subdermal fat in your cheeks, they’ll start to fall and cause lines to form around your mouth and sagging skin along your jaw line. Instead of getting surgery to get rid of that sagging skin and tighten those lines, though, you can just get dermal filler injections over the apples of your cheeks for a more youthful look in no time at all.

There are many different treatments and combinations of treatments to contour your skin and give you a more youthful appearance, and Juvia Med Spa offers all of the most cutting edge, highly effective procedures to give you the best results possible.
