Kybella to the Rescue!

Have you heard about Kybella?

I’m going to come right out and say it.   If you have a double chin, read this!

Kybella is a non-surgical, FDA approved treatment, administered with simple injections that reduces moderate to severe submental fat.   You probably just read that last sentence and are thinking, submental fat, what does that mean?  Well, submental fat is the medical term given to your double chin.  Neither sound good and either way you say it, you want it gone!  The best thing about Kybella is that it permanently destroys fat cells.  Yes, permanently!

Whether you inherited your double chin from your mom or dad, or maybe you earned it, you know how hard it is to get rid of.  Your double chin is stubborn.  Even working out and eating right won’t make it go away.  Does your double chin make you self-conscious?

Do you find yourself posing a certain way in photos to hide it?  Maybe always lifting your chin or taking a selfie with the camera held high so no one sees it?  Or maybe you like fall and winter so that you can wear turtle necks and scarves to hide it.  Well, Kybella can finally get rid of it for you, permanently.

To learn more about Kybella and how it can help to improve your profile call our office to schedule a no pressure, no strings attached complimentary consultation with one of our injection specialist at Skin Speaks Spa M.D.  Our number is 952-435-6565 and we look forward to sitting down with you to discuss Kybella!

Botox & Dermal Fillers – What are they, how do they work, and how are they different? #3

In our third and final post for “Botox & Dermal Fillers – What are they, how do they work, and how are they different?” we are going to look at two other types of dermal fillers, Calcium hydroxylapatite and poly-L-lactic-acid-based fillers.

Calcium hydroxylapatite (such as Radiesse) and poly-L-lactic-acid-based fillers (such as Sculptra) stimulate your own body to reproduce collagen to re-volumize your face.  Partial results from these types of fillers are visible right away, however what makes these fillers different than hyaluronic acid fillers is that they continue to work beneath the skin after you leave the office.  The creation of new collagen will continue over several weeks, and results are generally longer lasting, 1 year or more for Radiesse and 2 or more years for Sculptra.

These fillers can be used to treat a variety of concerns, from deeper lines around the mouth to volume loss in the cheeks and hollows in temples.  Results vary, depending on which filler is used to help you to reach your goal.

When you are ready to schedule a complimentary consult with one of our highly sklled and trained injection specialists, please call 952.435.6565.  They will answer all of your questions and help you customize a plan that you are comfortable with, no pressure, no questionable sales tactics, just open and honest conversation about you and your goals.

 

Botox & Dermal Fillers – What are they, how do they work, and how are they different? #1

Unless you are well versed in the world of cosmetic injections, there can be a lot of confusion surrounding the use of the words Botox and dermal fillers. In this series of three blogs, we will look at the differences between the them and talk about the purposes of each.

Botox and dermal fillers are both popular, non-invasive cosmetic procedures that are performed in the office with little to no down time that can help men and women to look younger, more relaxed and refreshed.

Let’s look at Botox first, then we will get into dermal fillers in upcoming posts.

Botox is a purified protein called Botulinum Toxin Type A that temporarily relaxes over-active muscles.  It is carefully injected into specific muscles of the face and neck to temporarily block the communication between the nerve and muscle.  It does this by preventing the release of acetylcholine at the neuro-muscular junction.  Once the muscle is relaxed, the appearance of creases and wrinkles is greatly improved. Continued treatments can actually help prevent further creasing which gives a more youthful appearance.  Botox results last an average of 3-4 months giving you a more relaxed, refreshed look.

Botox most commonly treats surface lines and wrinkles around the eyes, forehead, brow, upper lip, chin and nose.

As always, if you have more questions about Botox or are interested in scheduling a personalized consultation with one of our skilled injection specialists, call us at 952.435.6565. Jennifer Jeansson, RN, CANS and Angela Ciliberto, RN, DNC would be happy to sit down with you and answer all your questions, as well as work with you to customize the plan that is right for you.

Our very own Emily Turgeon has just finished an in-depth, detailed training course on microblading, the latest trend in eyebrow enhancement.  Emily is always on the lookout for the latest trends, and her detail oriented nature is perfect for this very detailed procedure. The course was very intense and included everything from the first consultation to the final followup.

Her extensive training has taken her to California, Texas, Florida and now New York. “I strive to have the most comprehensive training, knowledge and techniques to offer the most beautiful and natural results permanent makeup has to offer.”- Emily

Emily is extremely excited to be able to offer this new service to her clients!
