This March, Collins Advanced Dermatology Institute is happy to announce the arrival of two new services. Let us introduce you to KYBELLA® and Dermaplaning: KYBELLA® is an FDA-approved prescription injectable used to improve the appearance of moderate to severe submental fat, also known as the double chin.  This treatment is perfect for women and men alike, with proven results in just 2 to 4 sessions.  Deoxycholic acid, KYBELLA®’s active ingredient, naturally occurs within the body and aids in the breakdown and absorption of dietary fat. The injection is administered beneath the patient’s chin, where the cells responsible for collecting and storing fat are destroyed. The destruction of these cells is permanent, typically making retreatment unnecessary. If you are interested in KYBELLA®, the providers at Collins can help determine if it is the right treatment for you. The term dermaplaning may sound obscure, but despite its complex name, the procedure is quite simple. Dermaplaning is a safe and effective way to eliminate vellus hair (peach fuzz) and exfoliate the skin by lightly shaving the epidermis. This treatment is perfect for patients seeking a deeper exfoliation without the use of chemicals or peeling agents, such as those who may be pregnant or nursing. If you have excess vellus hair, mild acne scarring, or rough, dry skin dermaplaning may be right for you. The procedure requires no downtime and can be done as often as every two weeks. If you are interested in a brighter, healthier complexion contact our team today to book your dermaplaning appointment. Source:
