WHAT DOES IT DO?
Cliff notes: Say goodbye to the turkey chin
Kybella treatment has many benefits that appeal to patients. The main benefit of this treatment is the ability to reach your ideal appearance goals. One of the golden standards in beauty is a sharply defined jawline, but excess fat beneath the chin can mean that achieving that standard is nearly impossible.
HOW DOES THE APPOINTMENT GO?
Cliff notes: 30-45 minutes
After we check you in at Obsidian, we'll take you to one of our treatment rooms. Your first appointment will be an initial consultation in which we'll gather information about you and determine if you are a good candidate. We will discuss your aesthetic goals and examine your skin paying close attention to the unwanted fat beneath your chin. We may determine that a different treatment is better suited to your needs, such as plastic surgery. After your consult, and we determine Kybella is a good fit, we will cleanse and numb your skin and then carefully place small injections where we think will give you the best results. Your appointment should only last 30-45 minutes.
WHAT DOES RECOVERY LOOK LIKE?
Cliff notes: Not too bad
Recovery from this treatment takes between 2 to 3 weeks. During this time, you can expect temporary swelling or bruising at the treatment area which will resolve itself in the days following your treatment.
During your recovery, you can take part in most of your normal daily activities, such as going to work. We schedule a follow-up appointment about 4 weeks after your treatment to determine your progress with the Kybella treatment.
HOW LONG WILL IT LAST?
Cliff notes: Years!
Forget about masking a double chin with clever hair styles, statement necklaces, and clothing. With this Kybella treatment, you can find a permanent solution for your under-chin fat. Other treatments for double chin usually only last for a short amount of time: even surgical solutions like liposuction.
With this treatment, you can entirely erase under-chin fat for several years at a time, making this treatment a semi-permanent solution for many patients.
What is teeth whitening?People often throw the terms “teeth whitening” and “bleaching” around interchangeably. However, according to the FDA, teeth are “whitened” when they are lightened to match their natural color, and they are “bleached” when they are whitened beyond their natural shade.
Does teeth whitening remove stains?Yes of course it does! Our Teeth whitening packages not only removes stains but it keeps them from coming back quickly. Obviously excessive drinking of coffee and wine can speed up this process, but even then our teeth whitening package completely slows down the staining process.
How white will my teeth get?Everyone is born with a particular tooth color, just like your skin, hair and eyes. Our gels work to return you back to your original genetic tooth color. This varies from person to person. After just one treatment, most people are satisfied. For some people, a second or third treatment may be needed to achieve the results they are looking for. Some stains are much more difficult to remove than others. Depending on age and the type of stains, they may require more attention than others.
Is it safe?Numerous scientific studies have shown that there are no harmful effects from teeth whitening when teeth and gums are normal and healthy.
Are there any side effects?No serious adverse side effects are associated with our teeth whitening system. Some people do experience blanching of the gum line, a mild tingling sensation, or sensitivity, all of which typically last no more than 24 hours and can be alleviated by applying vitamin E oil to the teeth and/or gums.
How long does it last?Teeth whitening requires maintenance or touch-ups for a long lasting effect. The results can last for 12 months to 2 years and sometimes longer. The older you are, the more stains you have accumulated. Bleaching works to remove discolorations and restore your teeth to their natural white color. You may want to periodically whiten your teeth as exposure to certain foods and beverages will gradually darken teeth again over time. Most people touch up every 6 months to a year. You can whiten your teeth up to 3 times per year with our system.
How long before I can eat or drink teeth staining foods and drinks after my session?We recommend avoiding coffee, tea, red wine, berries, candy, red sauces, and other teeth-staining foods and beverages for the first 24 hours after your session.
How long will the appointment take?Your appointment will be one to three 20 minute sessions. After the first 20 minute session, we will check to see if the desired level of whiteness has been achieved. Typically first time patients will do three treatments, with a 20 minute touch up every three to six months.
