Facial Sculpting Services

Facial Sculpting consists of the precise use of Botox® Cosmetic and like products to relax muscles, as well as dermal fillers such as Juvederm® to restore lost volume in the face. This is done with the technical skills and knowledge of injecting, along with the artistic ability of an aesthetically-trained eye to create a more youthful appearance.

Botox® Cosmetic

Botox® Cosmetic is a safe, fast and effective way to reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles caused by facial expressions on the forehead and around the eyes and lips. Botox Cosmetic® is an FDA approved injectable treatment derived from small doses of the botulinum toxin. Once underneath the skin, Botox® blocks the chemical signals that cause muscles to contract. When muscles can’t tighten, the skin flattens and appears smoother and less wrinkled. 

  • By blocking the nerve impulses to the tiny facial muscles, that cause the facial expression lines and wrinkles, this protein prevents their contraction and relaxes them.
  • By reversing the dynamic wrinkles such as crow’s feet, frown lines, worry lines, laugh lines and neck bands, Botox Cosmetic reverses the visible signs of aging. Depending on the individual, the results can be visualized within 5-10 days after treatment, it peaks in 2-4 weeks and will last for 3-6 months.
  • The length of the treatment session is usually around 15 minutes.
  • There is no recovery period and patients should not experience any “down-time”.

 

Dermal Fillers

Botox Cosmetic is not a replacement for dermal fillers such as Juvederm or Restylane in the treatment of deep static wrinkles. The two products are complementary and their simultaneous use results in a more smooth, relaxed and younger appearance.

Empower MedSpa uses dermal fillers to provide a smooth, natural look and feel so everyone will notice but no one will know! Juvéderm™, Restylane and Restylane Silk are a smooth consistency gel made of hyaluronic acid—a naturally occurring substance in your skin that helps to add volume and hydration.

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.”

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. When injected properly, all other cells are left healthy and intact. So you can say, “Sayonara” to that selfie destructor underneath your jawline.

Is KYBELLA® right for me?
Only you and our medical staff can decide if KYBELLA® is right for you. If you’re bothered by extra fullness, or double chin, ask her and her experienced staff 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® and again is FDA approved.
Why is it needed?
“Upwards of 80% of people [with double chins] are concerned about the condition,” says

Derek H. Jones, MD, an associate clinical professor of dermatology at UCLA’s David Geffen School of Medicine. Jones was the lead investigator in a study sponsored by the drug’s maker, Kythera Biopharmaceuticals.

How many treatments will I need?
Empower medical providers 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, she 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.
The results are in!
In clinical studies, results for KYBELLA®-treated patients who had 1-grade composite improvement were 8% (1 treatment), 28% (2 treatments), 43% (3 treatments), 55% (4 treatments), 66% (5 treatments) and 72% (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. This means it’s gone and you’re done!
