Kybella treatment for double chin @ L Aesthetics & Longevity, Medical Injectors Dr. Billy Ledbetter and Sovay Reeder

Who's a good candidate for 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.”

What is Kybella, how does it work?  Kybella is a deoxycholic acid.  Deoxycholic acid is a bile acid formed by bacterial action from cholate. It is usually conjugated with glycine or taurine. Deoxycholic acid acts as a detergent to solubilize fats for intestinal absorption, is reabsorbed itself, and is used as a choleretic and detergent.

Before and After Picture of Natural lip enhancement filler with Volbella using cannula

2/19/17:  Hi!  My name is Sovay Reeder and I'm a trained and licensed medical injector working in Austin, Texas.  If you're interested in making an appointment, please feel free to text me at (512) 586-7494.

I specialize in natural enhancement work to restore your unique beauty.  I am currently very interested in utilizing the cannula for implementation of fillers in the face for a couple of reasons.  First, you can greatly reduce the incidence of bruising because you're using a blunt tip cannula versus a traditional sharp edge needle which can easily penetrate a vein/vessel.  Penetrating a vein/vessel can result in immediate bruising which can last weeks.  Second, you can typically do all areas needing filler with one or two injection sites because a blunt tip cannula is very mobile once it's in the dermis layer, whereas, the traditional sharp edge needle is not as mobile once under the skin (dermis) layer and, as a result, you will need to reinject when needing to apply filler to multiple sites even if it's a small area, for instance, the lips. The lips, for example, could require 6+ penetrations of a sharp tip needle to adequately get all areas of the lips needing filler and, in sharp contrast, you can achieve a similar affect with just 2 penetrations sites when using a cannula for lip filler.  Hopefully, that all made sense and didn't confuse you too much :)  ~ Sovay Reeder, Medical Injector
