One of the most flattering things of a person’s profile is having a chiseled, defined chin. If you have excess fat under your chin or a double chin, then you may feel a bit self-conscious about your profile and overall appearance. But, unless you want to undergo surgery, you may think that you are stuck with your double chin. One thing that you may not realize is that you have another option to choose from including an injection called Kybella.
WHAT IS KYBELLA?
Kybella is an FDA approved injectable that is designed to help destroy fat cells under the chin. Once Kybella is injected into the fat under the chin it works to dissolve the fat and leave you with a more defined profile.
HOW DOES KYBELLA WORK?
The main ingredient in Kybella is synthetic deoxycholic acid which works to naturally break down and absorb dietary fat. When injected into the fat beneath the chin, Kybella works to destroy the fat cells and give patients a noticeably thinner profile.
HOW MANY KYBELLA TREATMENTS WILL I NEED?
During your initial consultation with our staff, we will better be able to determine just how many treatments you will need. You may receive a total of six treatments, but on average, patients see visible results in just two to four treatments spaced one month apart.

What is MINT™ PDO & Is It Safe?MINT™ is an absorbable polydioxanone (PDO) barbed suture indicated for use in soft tissue approximation. With a decade worth of safety track record in surgery, PDO is a safe raw material that has been used for orthopedic and cardiovascular surgery for wound closure. As a safe raw material that is completely absorbed by the body through hydrolysis, PDO causes minimal tissue reaction and tissue trauma. Not only that, MINT™ is also backed by more than 6 years of clinical studies for its efficacy and safety and is the first and only PDO suture in the US market to have received two FDA clearances.
Is MINT™ FDA Cleared?In 2013, MINT™ received 510(k) clearance from the FDA as a Class II medical device, by demonstrating that the device to be marketed is safe and effective. MINT™ received global registrations for lifting indication from seven countries, such as the Korea MFDS, Europe CE, and China CFDA, to assure its excellent technological capabilities and reliable safety. In 2020, MINT™ became the only PDO suture in the US market to have received dual FDA clearances and is the only device of its kind to receive clearance for a lifting indication for nasolabial fold depth reduction.
How Does It Work?MINT™ PDO thread is a minimally invasive procedure that does not require general anesthesia nor big incisions for your patients. There are tiny barbs strategically placed and molded all around the thread. Once the threads are placed into the skin, the barbs anchor onto sagging skin, and the thread can be maneuvered to achieve a naturally youthful and defined look. Not only can it improve the appearance of sagging skin, PDO (polydioxanone) can also help promote the stimulation of collagen and neovascularization, which helps to improve skin elasticity, texture, fine lines, and volume for a timeless rejuvenation.
How is MINT™ Different From Cut Threads?Unlike conventional sutures that cut the barbs from the integral core of the thread, MINT™ is manufactured through an innovative patented technology where the barbs are press-molded on the surface of the thread to maintain its structural integrity. The 360 degrees of helically positioned barbs are designed to maximize tensile and anchoring strength in order to securely anchor onto the 3D structure of the soft tissue for effective and powerful approximation.
