Benefits of Using Kybella to Get Rid of Your Double Chin

Woman holding her face and smilingSubmental fullness, or “double chin,” can be the result of genetics, aging, or even weight gain. If you are someone who is bothered by submental fullness and you don’t want to pay for plastic surgery, the Kybella treatment at Emerge Medical & Well Spa in Tulsa can be right for you! So, what exactly is Kybella? And what are the benefits? Read on to learn more. 

What Is Kybella?

Kybella is an FDA approved injection made of a synthetic version of deoxycholic acid, a naturally occurring molecule found in the body that aids in the breakdown and absorption of dietary fat. When Kybella is injected directly into the unwanted fat under the chin, it destroys those fat cells and reduces fullness for a more youthful appearance. 

This being said, Kybella has a number of added benefits that make it not only a great alternative to surgery but a great stand-alone option for getting rid of unwanted submental fullness! Here are the benefits you can expect from this injection.

No Surgery

One of the more obvious benefits of Kybella is that you do not have to go under the knife or anesthesia like you would with plastic surgery! Kybella involves a series of small injections under the chin with minimal downtime for lasting results.

It’s Permanent

Unlike other cosmetic injections, the results of Kybella are meant to be permanent. This injection permanently destroys fat cells, and once they are gone they can no longer store or accumulate fat! 

It’s Fast and Easy

At Emerge Medical & Well Spa, the Kybella injection procedure involves a brief series of injections that last only about 20 minutes. The number of injections you receive depends on the results you desire, there is little to no downtime, and there are typically little to no side effects.

Beauty Benefits of BOTOX®

Learn More About the Beauty Benefits of BOTOX®

Many people have heard of Botox, and most people know that it is injected to improve natural beauty, but many people don’t know the details about the beauty benefits that Botox offers. In today’s blog from the beauty experts at Emerge Medical & Well Spa, we’ll discuss the many different beauty benefits of Botox. Read on to learn more!

Give Your Lips a Lift

Many people love the look of full, luscious lips, yet most don’t realize that Botox is a wonderful way to accomplish this look. Very small injections of Botox along the upper lip create a lifting and filling effect, bringing the lip up and out, for a simply perfect voluminous result.

This technique is more subtle than most options, and it’s a very simple process that is quick and long-lasting. If you want to discover how luscious your lips can be, consider the Botox Treatment from Emerge Medical & Well Spa.

Alleviate Annoying Acne

Did you know that Botox treatments can reduce the oil production that causes acne to develop on the face? It’s true! Even small doses of Botox can help to reduce the appearance of acne and the oily skin that causes acne in the first place. If you have tried other acne solutions and they simply haven’t worked for you, Botox treatment at Emerge Medical & Well Spa may be the solution you’re looking for.

Common Myths About BOTOX®

A Few Common Myths About BOTOX® Treatment

Common BOTOX® myths.

At Emerge Medical & Well Spa, we provide a wide array of different skincare, anti-aging and relaxation services to clients all over Tulsa and beyond. As one of the premier providers of up-to-date and innovative skincare solutions, we also understand that people often have misconceptions about certain treatments. BOTOX® is probably one of the most commonly maligned treatments available.

But, is there really a reason to avoid getting BOTOX® treatment? Is BOTOX® really dangerous? What are the real side effects? In previous blogs, we’ve looked at myths about laser treatments and tattoo removal. In this entry, we’re going to bust a few myths about BOTOX®.

It Freezes Your Face

The biggest BOTOX® myth to get out of the way is that it fixes your face in a permanent, emotionless expression. If you’ve told people you’re considering this treatment, you’ve probably had at least a couple of responses relating to a particular celebrity having a “frozen face” from it, and how you should avoid it.

Like many other cosmetic treatments, this myth came from a handful of famous cases of celebrities overdoing it, and is far from reality. In truth, the results of the injections only last 3-6 months. The “frozen” look that people talk about it also a result of overdosing on it. While it does reduce muscle movement, it doesn’t eliminate or fundamentally change it.

Professional treatment will reduce wrinkles and blemishes, but still leave you with regular muscle movement.

It’s Toxic

Another common myth about BOTOX® is that it’s toxic. Unlike the first example, this one is a little less cut-and-dry. While the substance is technically a neurotoxin, it isn’t one that is dangerously toxic in the quantities used during cosmetic treatments. This neurotoxin – called clostridium botulinum – is found in our natural environment, and is inactive in everyday quantities.

Treatment Is Painful

This myth has more to do with your own tolerance for needles more than the treatment itself. The reason that this treatment is so popular is the speed and general painlessness of it. Many people who have had this treatment think of it as something that can be done on a regular lunch break.

This is because needles used in this procedure are extremely fine and small, and cause far less pain and discomfort than a typical shot. Combined with numbing creams, this is why the treatment is often characterized by those who have had it as a quick, in-and-out procedure.

People Who Get Treated Are Vain

This one’s a little harder to tackle since it’s a little more personal. Sadly, many cosmetic procedures are still characterized as an exercise in vanity by those who get them. Again, this is a misconception.

While this treatment can certainly be done for purely cosmetic reasons, it’s also been applied to medical issues such as excessive sweating, chronic migraines, eyelid muscle spasms and much more. Not only that, but minor cosmetic adjustments are not entirely driven by vanity, and looking to improve or retain a youthful look is not something you should feel you have to hide.
