For many people, exercise and diet are just not enough. Stubborn fat deposits found under the chin, commonly known as a double chin, often require some form of cosmetic intervention to remove. Thankfully, Kybella® exists.
Causes of Double Chin
A double chin develops when excessive fat forms under the chin. Numerous factors can contribute to the appearance of a double chin. By understanding how a double chin forms, we can focus on getting rid of the problem itself.
Age is one of the main factors that leads to the development of a double chin. And although excessive weight gain does not always lead to a double chin, it can be a factor contributing to it. Diets high in unhealthful fats, processed foods, and calories can lead to weight gain and the development of a double chin.
What is Kybella®?
Kybella® has recently become extremely popular as a non-surgical treatment method for removing a double chin. Approved by the FDA in 2015, many patients are turning towards the procedure as a good alternative to liposuction for this stubborn problem.
The Kybella® treatment process involves the injection of something called deoxycholic acid. This naturally-occurring substance destroys fat cells when injected. After the fat cells have been destroyed, your body will safely flush them out of your system.
Is Kybella® Right for You?
The best way to find out if you would make a good candidate for Kybella® treatment is to set up an initial consultation with us at Derm Aesthetica Med Spa. Most people with a double chin qualify for Kybella® treatment. You may make a good candidate if you are an adult with skin that is not too loose and require treatment for stubborn fat that is unresponsive to diet or exercise.
One of the most unpleasant memories that many people have of their teenage years is suffering from severe acne. In addition to the trauma that this common skin condition can cause for awkward teens, lingering scars are a literal reminder that can cause further problems down the road in terms of self-esteem. Fortunately, non-surgical skin rejuvenation techniques are exploding in popularity right now. Many patients prefer professional acne scar treatments over other treatments because they are effective and can be customized based on the patient’s needs.
If your skin is looking dull and tired lately, a simple acne scar treatment via laser skin resurfacing may be just what you need to restore luster to your skin. The procedure works to reveal fresher skin lying underneath with less prominent acne scars and other unwanted skin issues.
Your acne scar treatments may work best when you undergo the procedure on a regular basis. However, it all depends on the unique case. However, thanks to this treatment, you will be able to remodel your skin and minimize common problems like wrinkles, blemishes, and acne scars.
In addition to making a fine treatment by itself, acne scar treatment works even better when performed in combination with other types of treatments. For example, topical skin care products see far greater skin penetration when they take advantage of the results of the treatment.
During our expertly performed acne scar treatments at DermAesthetica Med Spa in Amarillo, we utilize carefully controlled laser energy in order to bring about amazing results. Contact us today to book a consultation and learn more information about how this treatment works. We look forward to speaking with you!
Just because you have reached middle-age does not mean that you have to give in to looking and feeling less feminine. Vaginal changes are a natural part of the aging process. They may leave your external sexual organs looking larger than usual or misshapen. Many women with vaginal laxity deal with urinary stress incontinence as well. If you have this problem, you may leak urine when you sneeze, laugh or do something similar. Not only can this be embarrassing, but also it can quickly sap your confidence, making you unwilling to go to public events. Fortunately, there are vaginal rejuvenation treatments available, specifically, IntimaLase™.
Treatments with IntimaLase™ are safe and effective as demonstrated by several clinical studies. This is a fast, non-invasive treatment that uses a special handheld device to provide the best possible results. It is used to stimulate collagen remodeling and to increase the number of collagen fibers that live deep in the vaginal walls. Results from IntimaLase™ treatments include a tighter vagina, improved sexual satisfaction, and decreased incidence of urinary incontinence.
Side effects are rare with IntimaLase™, and the procedure should take just minutes. You should feel comfortable during the procedure and should begin noticing results within the first week. While one session is enough for many patients, some need an additional session.
If you have reached middle-age and are tired of how your vagina looks and feels, we can help you with precise IntimaLase™ treatments. A series of treatments may reveal the best results and will help you feel much like you did when you were in your twenties. Whether you are looking for a better sexual connection with your partner or a greater sense of self-confidence, we can help you in our private and secure office. Contact us today at DermAesthetica Med Spa to learn more. We are located in Amarillo, Texas.
Acne is one of the most common skin problems among teenagers and adults worldwide. This condition causes whiteheads, blackheads, pimples and other blemishes that can be painful. There are several effective treatment options available for patients who seek professional dermatological help. One of the best of these is treatment with Fotona’s Nd:YAG laser system. Read on to find out more information about ways to prevent and manage acne.
What About Topical and Oral Medications?
Persistent acne could be treated with medication that’s prescribed by a professional dermatologist. Some topical gels, creams, and pastes are formulated specifically to kill bacteria on contact. Benzoyl peroxide is perhaps one of the most potent formulas for the treatment of mild and moderate acne. All gels and creams that are used to treat acne are available in various concentrations that are suitable for a wide range of cases. But these medications can come with their fair share of downsides.
Topical medication can cause undesirable symptoms in patients with sensitive skin. Dryness, redness, peeling, and flaking are some common problems that are associated with creams and gels. Fortunately, there is a better solution that can be used to combat and prevent outbreaks. We’re talking about the Nd:YAG laser.
Getting Started with Treatment
We may first physically remove visible whiteheads, blackheads, cysts, and nodules on the face or body of a patient before performing the laser treatment. After the extraction, there may be some redness and inflammation of the areas that were cleared up. Our medical professionals are highly skilled and can minimize or completely prevent infection during an extraction.
Acne treatment is not one-size-fits-all. However, we have seen great results using the Fotona Nd:YAG laser system. Learn more by scheduling a consultation at Derm Aesthetica Med Spa in Amarillo, TX. Contact us today to book an appointment!
There is a dizzying array of treatments and procedures available at our state-of-the-art medical spa. Recent years have seen incredible advancements in this field that can help you look like the best version of yourself. Medical spa treatments can help you turn back the clock on aging skin and rejuvenate your appearance and even your energy. We warmly invite you to set up an appointment with a medical spa consultant to learn more about your options.
Skin rejuvenation treatments have exploded in popularity lately due to their ability to treat skin problems on the face and body. We use specialized techniques during the treatment which stimulate your body into producing fresh collagen and elastin. Or the treatment may remove old and damaged skin cells in order to push through the fresher, younger-looking skin underneath.
Common treatment options include chemical peels, dermablading, and deep pore cleansing. During your initial meeting with our medical spa consultant, you can learn more about each treatment and which one(s) can benefit you the most.
Laser Hair Removal
The amazing precision of medical lasers allow us to selectively target only hair follicles that produce unwanted hair. Typically, multiple treatment sessions are necessary to permanently destroy problem hair follicles. The patients who respond best to laser hair removal treatment are those with hair follicles still in the treated area. The hair follicle absorbs the laser energy and is destroyed, preventing further hair growth.
Dermal fillers are amazing treatments that can be used to fill in lines and wrinkles and restore lost facial volume. Whether you are dealing with hollow cheeks or wrinkles around your mouth, facial fillers could work for you. Some of them can even be used for non-surgical lip enhancement.
If you are a Texarkana resident who is getting older, you have probably started noticing the tell-tale signs of aging. Luckily, there is a wide array of anti-aging treatments and procedures to suit every conceivable condition and need. Surgery is no longer needed except in the most extreme cases. You should see significant results with skin care options that do not require you to go under the knife.
Laser Skin Revitalization
If you have more stubborn skin care problems like moderate to severe wrinkles, scars, stretch marks, or blemishes, laser skin revitalization may be perfect for you. A growing number of patients in Texarkana are turning to medical lasers as a part of their skin care treatment. We direct the laser energy into the skin to emit pulsed light energy that is transmitted into the lower levels of the skin. This prompts your body to remove damaged skin tissue that is then replaced by fresh skin that displays fewer imperfections like lines, wrinkles, and age spots.
Another increasingly popular minimally-invasive skin care treatment is injections with dermal fillers. These products are injected into the skin to promote increased skin volume and the minimization of lines and wrinkles. They have a great track record of safety since they use natural products or those that closely mimic them.
Hyaluronic acid is similar to collagen in that it is produced by your own body, declining in amount as you age. A hyaluronic acid-based dermal filler is a good choice if you require both increased skin thickness and hydration. That is because the role of hyaluronic acid in your skin is to attract and bind moisture, which has a volumizing effect upon your skin.

The small wrinkles and creases that form near the mouth, eyes, and on the forehead when we frown, smile, or make other facial expressions are called dynamic wrinkles. These frown lines and crow’s feet are an indicator of thinning, poorly supported skin that doesn’t contain adequate amounts of collagen and elastin. Many adults are wary of surgical procedures or feel they are too young to undergo such an aggressive treatment. Thankfully, BOTOX® is readily available right here in Amarillo.
BOTOX® is a simple, non-surgical solution to the problem of frown lines and crow’s feet. Without treating the skin directly, these injections can relax the muscles that control the appearance of the skin. Here in Amarillo, we offer consultations and treatments for various skin conditions, and BOTOX® is one of the most popular treatments we perform.
Your Skin and Facial Muscles
The upper-level muscles in the face, the ones that lie directly beneath the skin, pull or pinch the skin so that we can make facial expressions. Unfortunately, many adults realize that the simple act of frowning, smiling, or pursing the lips creates an unusually wrinkled skin surface. These tiny lines generally form around the perimeter of the eyes, near the corners of the mouth, and across the forehead. BOTOX® can help relax these muscles.
Consultation and Treatment
We need to consult with the client so that we can see what happens when certain facial expressions are made. This allows us to determine the BOTOX® dosage as well as choose the injection sites. This is not a treatment to be performed by just anyone. We are experts in these procedures, and we want to make certain that the correct dosage and injection sites are chosen.
BOTOX® is a temporary treatment for frown lines and other dynamic wrinkles, but it’s also very effective. The affected muscles become more and more used to being in a mostly relaxed state, so we may use less and less of the fluid during each subsequent treatment.
No More Frown Lines
The difficulties of sleeping next to a person who snores has frequently been joked about on sitcoms for years. However, for those who are suffering with this problem, it is no laughing matter. Snoring is known to be caused by enlarged tonsils, tongue, or even obesity, and it may cause sleep difficulties for loved ones and the individual who snores. These difficulties may include fatigue, insomnia, poor quality of sleep, or other various health problems that are linked to snoring. One major health problem associated with snoring is sleep apnea, where the sufferer may cease breathing while sleeping, potentially leading to reduced oxygen intake, headaches, and poor concentration the next day. Fortunately, there are several treatment options available, including laser snoring therapy.
Here are a just a few of the many ways in which laser snoring therapy at our office may help you to sleep better and stop or minimize your snoring.
1) Sleep apnea is when an individual periodically and repeatedly stops breathing throughout the sleep cycle due to the throat muscles relaxing to the point that they may obstruct a person’s airway. Indications that a person is dealing with sleep apnea include feeling fatigued or tired after a full night of seemingly restful, uninterrupted sleep. Through laser snoring therapy, the impact of sleep apnea can be significantly reduced by increasing air flow. This means concentration may improve, headaches may cease, and energy may increase.
2) Snoring, depending on the severity, may be excessively loud. This may cause interrupted sleep for both the individual sleeping and their loved ones, especially if someone’s partner is not a heavy sleeper. Continuously interrupted sleep may cause issues that would normally not present themselves if a full and restful night of sleep had been had. This may include poor concentration, headaches, and moodiness. With laser snoring therapy, the volume of snoring can be significantly reduced, resulting in better sleep for snorers and their families.
Laser treatment for snoring may not only ease the symptoms associated with snoring, but it may also increase quality of life for snorers and those they sleep next to and hold dear. If you or your loved one snores loudly and suffers with depression, mood swings, headaches, and fatigue, sleep apnea may be the cause. To safely determine if this is the case, scheduling an appointment with our medical professional at Derm Aesthetica Med Spa is the first and wisest step to gaining that diagnosis. Only then will you be able to fully discuss any potential treatment options and decide which treatment will work best for you and your unique circumstances.
