New injectables diminish signs of aging

Gundersen Plastic Surgery and Aesthetics is now offering KYBELLA®, an injectable to reduce a double chin and improve neck contours, and Restylane Silk to enhance thinning lips and minimize fine lines around lips.

KYBELLA® to improve double chin

Has genetics, weight gain and/or aging left you with a "double chin"? Unfortunately the problem usually does not go away, even with diet and exercise. But now, with FDA-approved KYBELLA®, there is a way to improve neck contour, appearance and profile in people with moderate to severe fat below the chin.

The active ingredient, deoxycholic acid, is a naturally occurring molecule in the body. Injected into the fat beneath your chin, KYBELLA destroys fat cells so they cannot store or accumulate fat. So once results are achieved, it's unlikely you will need any re-treatment.

You and your doctor will decide how many treatments you need. Many patients notice results in two to four sessions. Up to six sessions may be administered, spaced a month or more apart.

In clinical studies, 79 percent of people treated with KYBELLA reported satisfaction with the look of their face and chin. Patients also reported improvement in self-perception, including feeling happier and younger based on their chin profile, as well as feeling less self-conscious.

Restylane Silk for improved lips

The lips and the lines around the mouth can show signs of aging as you get older. This often results in thinning lips, lost shape and lines around the lips.

Restylane Silk provides precise lip shaping for silkier, smoother, fuller lips. Restylane Silk gives you more natural-looking results by using smaller, smoother particles than those used in other Restylane® filler products.

In a clinical study, patients treated with Restylane Silk reported fast-acting, long-lasting results with 98 percent of patients reporting visible improvement in lip fullness 14 days after injection and 76 percent reporting they still had lip improvement six months after injections.
