KYBELLAIf you are looking for a nonsurgical treatment for extra dietary fat (like a double chin), KYBELLA® should be a procedure to evaluate. The active ingredient in KYBELLA® is synthetic deoxycholic acid. Deoxycholic acid is a naturally occurring molecule in the body that aids in the breakdown and absorption of dietary fat. When injected into the fat beneath the chin, KYBELLA® destroys fat cells, resulting in a noticeable reduction in fullness under the chin. Once destroyed, these cells can no longer store or accumulate fat, so further treatment is not expected once you reach your desired aesthetic goal. Focal Point can combine this treatment with a skin tightening treatment to ensure you’re your final goals are achieved.
Are Results from Kybella Seen Immediately?Kybella is typically performed as a series of treatments in order to produce the most dramatic and natural looking results. Fat reduction in the area of treatment is gradual and improves over a period of weeks to months. A typical treatment regimen may include 1-3 Kybella sessions spaced every 6-8 weeks.
Can I use Kybella with other procedures?Yes, Kybella may be used in combination with other procedures to enhance the neck and jawline. Kybella may be used in some patients as an alternative to liposuction. As Kybella eliminates unwanted fat in the submental area, it may be combined with other rejuvenation procedures to produce a more pleasing jawline, neck, and bra fat areas. For example, Venus Versa may provide additional skin tightening and lifting to complement the contouring effect from Kybella.
Cellulite ReductionThe quest for a perky posterior and smooth thighs is a popular topic in the gym and around swimsuit season. But how can you rid your body of the dreaded and unwanted dimples?

What Causes Cellulite?
Cellulite is caused by fibrous bands that acts as a hammock for fat cells. The more pull that the fibrous bands have, the more fat can rest on the “hammock” creating more or deeper appearance of cellulite.
Who Gets Cellulite?
Let’s face it, cellulite happens at any age and at all sizes. It is much more common in women than in men because of differences in the way fat, muscle, and connective tissue are distributed in men's and women's skin.
