What is KYBELLA®?
KYBELLA® (deoxycholic acid) injection is the first and only FDA-approved injectable treatment that is used in adults to improve the appearance and profile of moderate to severe fat below the chin (submental fat), also called, “double chin.” It is not known if KYBELLA® is safe and effective in children less than 18 years of age. It is not known if KYBELLA® is safe and effective for use outside of the submental area.
How does KYBELLA® work?
The active ingredient in KYBELLA® is deoxycholic acid, a naturally-occurring molecule in the body that aids in the breakdown and absorption of dietary fat.
When injected into the fat beneath your chin, KYBELLA® causes the destruction of fat cells. Once destroyed, those cells cannot store or accumulate fat.
Is KYBELLA® right for me?
Only you and your doctor can decide if KYBELLA® is right for you. If you’re bothered by submental fullness, or double chin, ask your doctor about KYBELLA®.
How many people have been treated with KYBELLA®?
KYBELLA® has been the focus of a global clinical development program involving over 20 clinical studies with more than 2,600 patients worldwide, of which over 1,600 have been treated with KYBELLA®.
How many treatments will I need?
You and your doctor will customize your KYBELLA® treatment regimen, including how many treatments you need, based on your desired chin profile. Many patients experience visible results in 2 to 4 treatment sessions. During these sessions, your HCP will administer KYBELLA® into the fat under your chin using multiple injections. Up to 6 treatment sessions may be administered spaced no less than one month apart.
- In clinical studies, results for KYBELLA®-treated patients who had a ≥1-grade composite improvement were 8% (1 treatment), 28% (2 treatments), 43% (3 treatments), 55% (4 treatments), 66% (5 treatments) and 72% (6 treatments)
- In clinical studies, results for KYBELLA®-treated patients who had a ≥2-grade composite improvement were 0% (1 treatment), .2% (2 treatments), .8% (3 treatments), 3.5% (4 treatments), 3.9% (5 treatments) and 15% (6 treatments)
- 59% of subjects in the clinical trials received all 6 treatments
How long will the results last?
When injected into the fat under your chin, KYBELLA® causes the destruction of fat cells. Once destroyed, those cells cannot store or accumulate fat. After the aesthetic response is achieved, retreatment with KYBELLA® is not expected.

For a silky, smooth
Designed specifically for lips and the lines around them
Restylane Silk has recently been approved for release in the United States! It's the first and only FDA-approved product specifically designed for subtle lip enhancement and the smoothing of wrinkles and lines around the mouth in patients over 21 years of age.
HOW DOES RESTYLANE SILK WORK?
Just like the other members of the Restylane family, Restylane Silk is a clear gel formulation of hyaluronic acid — a sugar that is naturally present in your skin.
BEFORE AND AFTER PATIENT PHOTOS COMING SOON!
Check back to see the natural-looking difference Restylane Silk can make in your smile. Of course, treatment results may vary. Ask your doctor for more details.
WHAT MAKES RESTYLANE SILK DIFFERENT FROM OTHER RESTYLANE PRODUCTS?
Like other areas of the face, the lips and skin surrounding the mouth show signs of aging as an individual gets older. This often results in lip thinning, lost shape and an increase in vertical lines above the lip.
Restylane Silk is designed specifically to provide natural-looking results in these areas. That's why it's made of smaller, smoother particles than those used in otherRestylane products.
In a clinical study of patients treated with Restylane Silk or no treatment, clinical investigators reported:
- 77% of patients treated with Restylane Silk showed at least a one-point improvement in lip fullness (measured on on a 5-point scale) eight weeks after treatment.
- 59% of patients treated with Restylane Silk maintained lip fullness six months after treatment
Restylane® Silk's unique particle gel formula, along with an ultrafine needle designed for improved accuracy, helps give you softer, more precise results — just what you need for a natural-looking smile.
SEE WHAT OTHERS ARE SAYING
In the same clinical study, patients treated with Restylane Silk reported fast-acting, long-lasting results:
- 98% of patients reported a visible improvement in lip fullness 14 days after injection
- 76% of patients still had lip improvement six months following injection
As with any other hyaluronic acid gel that is injected into the lips, the most common side effect is temporary swelling. Please see below for Important Safety Information for Restylane Silk.
JUVÉDERM VOLUMA® XC
What is JUVÉDERM VOLUMA® XC?
JUVÉDERM VOLUMA® XC injectable gel is for deep injection in the cheek area to correct age-related volume loss in adults over 21. It will temporarily correct volume in the cheeks and cheek area that has been lost due to aging and will provide a smoother contour and more youthful appearance to the face.
JUVÉDERM VOLUMA™ XC injectable gel is a smooth, colorless hyaluronic acid (HA) gel that contains a small quantity of local anesthetic (lidocaine). HA is a naturally occurring sugar found in the human body. The role of HA in the skin is to deliver nutrients and help the skin retain its natural moisture and softness. The addition of lidocaine helps to improve the comfort of the injection. JUVÉDERM VOLUMA™ XC injectable gel is manufactured using VYCROSS™ technology to give a specialized smooth-gel filler that produces long-lasting results at the treatment site. JUVÉDERM VOLUMA™ XC is delivered by an injection into the cheek and surrounding area of the mid-face to correct volume and fullness.
What is it for? JUVÉDERM VOLUMA™ XC is indicated for deep (subcutaneous and/or supraperiosteal) injection for cheek augmentation to correct age-related volume deficit in the mid-face in adults over the age of 21. What does it do? As you age, the cheek area loses its youthful shape. The cheeks flatten out and the skin may begin to sag. JUVÉDERM VOLUMA™ XC injectable gel is designed to temporarily reverse these signs of aging. It is a gel that is injected into the cheek area to lift the skin. It temporarily adds volume to the cheek area and results in a smoother contour and more youthful appearance to the face.
Are there any reasons why I should not receive JUVÉDERM VOLUMA™ XC injectable gel? Your provider will ask about your medical history to determine if you are an appropriate candidate for treatment. • You should not use the product if you have severe allergies with a history of severe reactions (anaphylaxis). Use may result in an allergic reaction • You should not use the product if you are allergic to lidocaine or to the proteins used to make the HA in JUVÉDERM VOLUMA™ XC (gram-positive bacterial proteins). Use may result in an allergic reaction
BEFORE PROCEDURE INFORMATION:
What happens in the office before the injection? Note that each provider may have a unique process for assessing and treating patients. Before the injection procedure, your provider will ask you questions about your medical history, as well as your treatment goals. Your provider will discuss whether you are an appropriate candidate for JUVÉDERM VOLUMA™ XC and review what to expect during and after treatment, including possible side effects. Your provider will also examine your skin in and around the treatment area, and may take photos. Different options for pain management will be discussed, and if pretreatment numbing is desired, a topical such as lidocaine cream, or other anesthetic agent may be used. The treatment area will be cleaned and then prepared with alcohol or other antiseptic. Your provider may use a pen to mark your face, identifying the planned areas of injection.
What happens during the procedure? After the first injection into the cheek, your doctor will wait a few seconds to allow the lidocaine to take effect before moving forward with the rest of the treatment. JUVÉDERM VOLUMA™ XC will be injected in small amounts over the treatment area until the desired aesthetic outcome is achieved. Your provider may massage the treatment area gently to assure that the product is evenly distributed. An ice pack may be applied for a brief period following treatment to minimize swelling and reduce pain.
Do the injections hurt? Injections may cause some discomfort during and after the procedure. In the JUVÉDERM VOLUMA™ XC injectable gel clinical study, immediately after injection, subjects rated injection pain, on average, as a 3 on an 11-point scale where 0 is no pain and 10 is worst pain imaginable. JUVÉDERM VOLUMA™ XC injectable gel contains lidocaine to reduce injection-site pain. Your doctor may also choose to numb (anesthetize) the treatment area with a topical or injected numbing agent to further minimize discomfort.
AFTER PROCEDURE INFORMATION:
What should I expect following the procedure? In the clinical trial the most common side effects were temporary reactions at the treatment site such as tenderness, swelling, firmness, and lumps/bumps. These side effects generally lasted 2 to 4 weeks. Within the first 24 hours, you should minimize strenuous exercise and exposure to extensive sun or heat. Exposure to any of the above may increase temporary redness, swelling, and/or itching at the injection site. If there is swelling, you may place an ice pack over the swollen area. You should ask your provider when makeup may be applied after your treatment.
Will I need more than one treatment to achieve my desired result? You should discuss your treatment goals and plan with your doctor. In the clinical study, 82% of subjects received a touch-up treatment 1 month after initial treatment in order to achieve the desired result.
Does the correction last forever? No. While individual results may vary, in the clinical study, the results lasted up to 2 years in a majority of subjects treated with JUVÉDERM VOLUMA™ XC. After this, repeat injections are usually needed to maintain your desired result.
JUVÉDERM® Ultra Plus XC
JUVÉDERM® Ultra Plus XC?
JUVÉDERM® Ultra Plus XC is an FDA approved injectible colorless hyaluronic acid gel that contains a small quantity of local anesthetic (lidocaine). It is injected into facial tissue to smooth wrinkles and folds, especially around the nose and mouth. Hyaluronic acid is a naturally occurring sugar found in the human body. The role of hyaluronic acid in the skin is to deliver nutrients, hydrate the skin by holding in water, and to act as a cushioning agent. The role of lidocaine is to reduce the pain associated with injections into the skin.
What does it do?
JUVÉDERM® Ultra Plus XC is FDA approved to temporarily add volume to facial tissue and restores a smoother appearance to the face. The lidocaine in the gel improves the comfort of the injection.
How is it used?
JUVÉDERM® Ultra Plus XC is injected into areas of facial tissue where moderate to severe facial wrinkles and folds occur. It temporarily adds volume to the skin and may give the appearance of a smoother surface.
What will it accomplish? JUVÉDERM® Ultra Plus XC injectable gel will help to smooth moderate to severe facial wrinkles and folds. Most patients need 1 treatment to achieve optimal wrinkle smoothing, and the results last about 1 year.
Do the injections hurt?
Some discomfort may occur during and after the injection. JUVÉDERM® Ultra Plus XC injectable gel contains an anesthetic to reduce injection-site pain. Physicians may choose to numb (anesthetize) the treatment area with a cream placed directly on the injection site (topical) to further minimize discomfort.
What should I expect following the procedure?
Your provider will tell you what to expect following treatment with JUVÉDERM® Ultra Plus XC. Within the first 24 hours, you should avoid strenuous exercise, extensive sun or heat exposure, and alcoholic beverages. Exposure to any of the above may cause temporary redness, swelling, and/or itching at the injection sites. If there is swelling, you may need to place an ice pack over the swollen area. You should ask your provider when makeup may be applied after your treatment.
Does the correction last forever?
No. Correction is temporary; therefore, touch-up injections as well as repeat injections are usually needed to maintain optimal correction. Less material (about half the amount) is usually needed for repeat injections.
What Juvederm Ultra Plus is Best For:
Juvederm Ultra Plus was designed to go deeper into the skin to fill out more severe wrinkles.
Again, Juvederm Ultra Plus outperforms when it comes to correcting naso-labial folds because it’s thicker and goes deeper into the dermis.
Areas with greater volume loss
Because of its thicker consistency and cross-linking Juvederm Ultra Plus works better for those that have significant volume loss.
