What is KYBELLA®?

KYBELLA KYBELLA® is a prescription medicine 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 for the treatment of fat outside of the submental area or in children under 18 years of age. If you’re interested in a nonsurgical way to reduce submental fullness, KYBELLA® may be right for you. KYBELLA® is a first-of-its-kind injectable treatment for adults with submental fullness that destroys fat cells under the chin to improve your profile. KYBELLA® MAY BE RIGHT FOR YOU IF: You’re bothered (unhappy, self-conscious, embarrassed) by fat under the chin, also known as submental fullness, you feel the condition makes you look older or heavier than you actually are, you don’t want to have surgery, and/or you eat well and exercise, but submental fullness does not go away. Multiple injections under the chin per treatment; up to 6 treatments spaced at least 1 month apart. 59% of patients received 6 KYBELLA® treatments in clinical studies. Treatment is tailored to the amount of fat under the chin and aesthetic goals. Treatment can only be administered by a KYBELLA®-trained healthcare specialist. At each treatment, you will receive multiple small injections under your chin, and the injection process takes about 15 to 20 minutes. The exact number of injections will depend on the amount of fat you have under your chin and your desired profile. After KYBELLA® treatment, you will likely have some swelling, bruising, or numbness under your chin. Be sure to inform your healthcare professional if you develop an uneven smile, facial muscle weakness, or difficulty swallowing. You should not receive KYBELLA® if you have an infection in the treatment area. Tell your healthcare provider about all the medicines you take, including prescription and over-the-counter medicines, vitamins, and herbal supplements. Especially tell your healthcare provider if you take a medicine that prevents the clotting of your blood (antiplatelet or anticoagulant medicine). There are possible side effects that KYBELLA® can cause serious side effects, including nerve injury in the jaw (which can cause an uneven smile or facial muscle weakness) or trouble swallowing. Injection site problems including: bruising, hair loss, open sores (ulcers), damage and tissue cell-death (necrosis) around the injection site. Call your healthcare provider if you develop open sores or drainage from the treatment area. The most common side effects of KYBELLA® include swelling, pain, numbness, redness, and areas of hardness in the treatment area. This treatment is permanent. It kills the fat cells in the neck and is an excellent alternative to...

Arnica Massage Oil

The Benefits of Arnica Massage Oil Arnica is a flowering perennial plant from the daisy family. It’s blossoms are used to make arnica oil, an aromatic, yellow essential oil. At Flagstaff Face & Body, we use an arnica oil blended with other relaxing essential oils to help temporarily reduce inflammation, soothe the body and mind, and reduce tension in muscles and joints. Arnica works by increasing circulation, thereby increasing energy and promoting healing throughout the body. It is widely used to reduce muscle soreness from sports or excersize, and can help to reduce arthritic pain. When topically applied to minor injuries like bruises and strained muscles, it can quickly stimulate circulation to those areas, including the resources and oxygen needed to produce healthy new cells and heal broken blood vessels. When applied to the base of the neck or temples, it can work to quickly relive migraines or headaches. When applied to the skin, this oil takes about 3 hours to absorb into the body. Numerous studies have found that arnica can help stimulate the production & activity of white blood cells. This helps stimulate the immune system and increase bacterial and viral resistance.

TIRED OF SHAVING, WAXING OR TWEEZING?

TIRED OF SHAVING, WAXING OR TWEEZING?

Then it’s time to get rid of unwanted hair. Our laser hair technology is safe and effective for most skin types. Studies show both women and men can feel disfigured from unwanted facial and/or body hair. How it works: This treatment uses a cosmetic laser that has settings adjusted to both your skin and hair type. The laser fires a concentrated beam of light that’s directed at the pigment in your hair follicles. This kills the follicle at its root, preventing those hairs from growing back. Hair grows in cycles. Lasers are effective in only the anagen phase (the active growth phase) when the melanin load (hair pigment) is at its highest. Because not all of the hairs are in the anagen phase at any one time, treatments must be repeated to capture new hairs coming into the anagen phase. It often takes between five to six sessions (4-8 weeks apart) for best results. You’ll want to be consistent. After the first few treatments you might not see much of a difference, but will start to notice a dramatic drop in unwanted hair after the first three sessions — and even more after that. Dark hair follicles are usually easy to treat because, again, the laser targets the hair’s pigment. This is also why gray, white, blonde, and red pigments can be tricky. Darker skin tones can also be harder to treat. The sad truth is that not everyone’s skin will react well to cosmetic laser treatments. Pigment problems, discoloration, and scarring can occur with some skin types, which is why it’s important to allow your medical professional to conduct a small test patch first if necessary. Before a laser hair reduction session: No sun: At LEAST 2-4 weeks before, to be exact. You can’t receive this treatment if you’re sunburned — or even if you have a tan. Summer might not be the best time to start laser hair removal if you’re a fan of the outdoors. A lot of people start treatments in the fall or winter in order to have stubble-free skin by summer! No tanning beds or tanning creams or spray tans. Shave first: This isn’t like waxing, and you don’t need to grow your unwanted hair out beforehand. On that note, you can’t come in for laser hair removal if you’ve had a wax recently. Remember, the laser targets the PIGMENT of your hair follicle, which actually has to be there in order for this to work. The best thing you can do is shave a day before your appointment....

The Eclipse MicroPen® has a high-speed motor allows for a more efficient yet timely procedure. The rapid pen motion provides a more comfortable experience that patients describe as a mild sandpaper-like sensation. Safety and control features The Eclipse MicroPen® has leads to predictable, consistent results. Automated micro-needling is an innovation in aesthetics for the treatment of the appearance of fine lines, acne scars and the skin’s texture, tone and color. The skin’s repair process results in improvement of the appearance of softer wrinkles. Eclipse MicroPen® is the most advanced medical-grade automated micro-needling device on the market. Here are a few FAQ’s to learn more about The Eclipse MicroPen® and Collagen Induction Therapy: How Is MicroPen® Different From Dermal Needling Rollers? Automated micro-needling devices move in a vertical direction for better precision when treating the skin. Unlike automated micro-needling, the roller does not create a precise vertical action. The lack of precision can contribute to greater discomfort and inconsistent effects to the skin. How Is MicroPen® Different From Lasers? No heat also equals less downtime! Most Eclipse MicroPen® patients are red for 24 hours or less. That advantage means you can get the procedure performed on a Friday and be back to normal for work on Monday. What Is Automated Micro-Needling? Automated micro-needling is an innovation in aesthetics for the treatment of the appearance of fine lines, acne scars and the skin’s texture, tone and color. Eclipse MicroPen® is the most advanced medical-grade automated micro-needling device on the market. What Are The Benefits? The benefits of micro-needling can included a reduction in the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, and younger-looking skin with fewer signs of aging. Eclipse MicroPen® may also has a positive effect on the appearance of hyper-pigmentation, hypo-pigmentation, acne scars, traumatic scars, stretch marks and generally creates a fresher appearance or glow to the skin. What Areas Of The Body Can be Treated? Eclipse MicroPen® can be used on all parts of the body, including the: face, neck, décolleté, arms, hands, legs, abdomen and back. How Is The Procedure Done? A sterile cartridge containing 12 points is attached to the Eclipse MicroPen®. Your skincare professional will apply a thin layer of sterile saline or hyaluronic acid to your skin and select the appropriate pen setting based on your unique needs. Next, in a single motion, the pen will be gently pressed against the skin while simultaneously gliding in one direction until the entire treatment area has been covered. What Does It Feel Like? The feeling associated with the Eclipse MicroPen® is similar to light sandpaper being moved across the skin. While some areas are more sensitive than others, the speed of the reciprocating tip reduces discomfort while the applied hydrating gel also makes the treatment more tolerable. What Is The Downtime? Immediately after the treatment you will notice a bright redness to the skin. The total healing time depends on the Eclipse MicroPen® setting used and the number of overlapping passes your skincare professional performs. On average, patients are red up to 2 to 4 days. Many patients heal completely in as little as 24 hours. Utilizing Skinmedica Recovery Complex can help to speed up the healing process and assist with...
