KYBELLA® - TO IMPROVE STUBBORN DOUBLE-CHIN
KYBELLA® is the First and Only FDA approved injectable treatment used to improve the appearance of moderate to severe fat beneath the chin (sub-mental area) by destroying the fat cells. At Cosmetic Medicine Center, we were the first to offer this treatment to our patients in the Carson Valley area.
HOW DOES KYBELLA WORK?
KYBELLA® is injected into the area beneath the chin destroying fat cells. Once the fat cells are destroyed they cannot store or accumulate fat. The active ingredient in KYBELLA® is deoxycholic acid, a naturally occurring molecule found in the body that assists in the breakdown and absorption of fat. Depending on each individual patient, the number of treatments may vary from 1-4 treatments. Each treatment is spaced out 4 weeks apart.
WHAT IS THE PROCESS OF THE TREATMENT?
KYBELLA® is an injectable treatment given in an office visit. The treatment may take up to 20 minutes. Several injections are administered into the fat under the chin.
WHAT CAN I EXPECT AFTER MY TREATMENT?
Following your treatment with KYBELLA® you may experience some minor swelling in the area that was injected. You may resume your daily activities but limit social plans or commitments. Ice may be applied after your treatment for 10-15 minutes as necessary.
WHAT SIDE EFFECTS CAN OCCUR AFTER TREATMENT?
Common side effects include; swelling, bruising, pain, numbness, redness and areas of hardness.
HOW DO I KNOW IF I AM A CANDIDATE FOR KYBELLA®?
If you have fullness under the chin that does not go away with diet and exercise. You would like a minimally invasive procedure with little to no down time.

CLARITY LASER ™ - FOR REMOVING UNWANTED HAIR & PIGMENT & REJUVENATING SKIN
WHAT IS LASER HAIR REMOVAL?
Laser hair removal is a non-surgical, non-invasive method of removing unwanted hair. A laser beam travels through the skin and is attracted to the pigment of the hair. The energy then flows to the hair follicle growth cells to inhibit further hair growth.
Not all hair removal treatments are equal, some lasers require more treatments, more time, additional pain and at home solutions are not permanent.
Cleared by the FDA (US Food and Drug Administration) for permanent hair reduction, you can count on Clarity to provide a permanent solution for your unwanted hair.
WHO IS A GOOD CANDIDATE FOR LASER HAIR REMOVAL?
All hair removal lasers work by targeting the pigment within the follicle, which means the darker your hair the easier it will be to treat. However, today’s lasers such as the CLARITY™, treat a full spectrum of skin types and hair color.
MULTIPLE TREATMENT OPTIONS WITH CLARITY™
SUPERIOR CHOICE FOR HAIR REMOVAL, PIGMENT, VASCULAR, SKIN REJUVENATION
ARE THERE ANY SIDE EFFECTS WITH LASER HAIR REMOVAL?
Side effects are usually mild. The skin may appear red-similar to a sunburn-but this subsides within 24-48 hours. Other side effects, such as blisters, are extremely rare.
HOW WILL I PREPARE FOR A LASER HAIR REMOVAL TREATMENT?
After a consultation with Jenna Peck, APRN, we will provide specific instructions prior to your treatment. Usually the area to be treated should be shaved first to ensure a more comfortable and effective treatment.
HOW LONG DOES THE TREATMENT TAKE?
The treatment can take between 2 minutes up to 15 minutes, depending on the size of the area.
HOW MANY TREATMENTS WILL I NEED?
Hair grows in cycles and most patients need at least 3 or more treatments spaces 4-8 weeks apart for a satisfactory result.
IS LASER HAIR REMOVAL PAINFUL?
Most patients experience mild pinching of the skin as the laser moves over the hair. The CLARITY™ laser has a specialized air cooling system that makes the treatments more comfortable.

LASEMD™ - TO BOOST SKIN WITH COLLAGEN & ELASTIN
LaseMD is a fractional, non-ablative laser – which means that it uses laser energy to create micro-channels in the skin through which it works its effects. These micro-channels stimulate the body’s natural production of collagen and elastin, which helps to improve the overall health and quality of the skin at a cellular level, in addition to improving its appearance on the outside. LaseMD skin resurfacing treatments can be used to improve a wide variety of common skin concerns and imperfections, including treating active acne and acne scarring, sun damage, actinic keratosis (AK’s) and melasma, fine lines, uneven skin tone and texture, and even tightening skin! Areas treated with LaseMD are the face, neck, chest, arms, hands and legs.
The LaseMD is totally customizable based on your needs – this laser is capable of giving your skin a little “boost” or achieving a full resurfacing to remove 5 years of aging in a 20- minute treatment. Depending on the settings, you can immediately return to your normal activities or the next day. With more aggressive settings you will only have a couple days of redness and can apply make-up for work and events only 24 hours after your procedure.

Plasma Pen™ promotes skin tightening along with collagen and elastin stimulation.
Plasma Pen™, German-made, CE Certified Plasma Pen™ handpiece converts electrical energy into electrostatic energy which is transmitted to the applicator tip (the probe) by impulse. It discharges a precision flash of plasma via a sterile 0.4mm nano-probe within millionths of a second. This plasma flash is achieved by ionizing atmospheric gas, such as nitrogen and oxygen, to create a plasma gas. The arc of plasma gas we create is safe, highly controlled and sustained by our device’s unique fingertip control. The probe does not ever touch or pierce the skin and the bias of the plasma delivery mechanism is always set to off as standard thus only ever ensuring on-demand plasma delivery.

SCULPTRA® AESTHETIC - FOR STIMULATING COLLAGEN & RESTORING VOLUME
Sculptra® Aesthetic is a poly-L-lactic acid (PLLA) based treatment. Unlike hyaluronic acid (HA) fillers, Sulptra® Aesthetic once injected begins working deep within the skin to stimulate collagen production, reinforcing the skin’s inner structure and restoring its volume. Sculptra® Aesthetic works subtly and as we age, we lose collagen which leads to weakening of your skin’s inner structure reducing its ability to maintain elasticity and moisture. The break down of collagen then leads to lines, wrinkles and folds in the facial structure. Volume loss and support is also present with collagen loss.
Dermal fillers address lines, wrinkles, folds not collagen loss. We evaluate each patient to decide what treatment is best for them, this could be a series of treatments and or a combination of treatments along with a prescribed pre-conditioning skin care regimen. Upon a consultation we can determine if you are a candidate for Sculptra® Aesthetic.

Making headlines in the news on “The View” in 2013 and recently winning the 2017 Aesthetic Industry Award for meeting the Gold Standard in microneedling. SkinPen® by Bellus Medical is the only legally marketed and FDA cleared microneedling device.
MICRONEEDLING + PRP
SkinPen® Microneedling combined with PRP (Platelet Rich Plasma) is an effective therapy to remove acne scars, age spots, as well as improve poor skin texture and tone. Results are seen within one week of treatment. After one treatment of SkinPen® Microneedling with PRP your skin will be rejuvenated and tighter. For optimal results, we recommend a series of three treatments, 4-6 weeks apart. Additionally, we recommend pre-conditioning your skin with Defenage for 2 weeks prior and adding a CooLift hyaluronic acid treatment at the end of your procedure to further aid in collagen building. We will be happy to answer further questions regarding this unique procedure at the time of your consultation and customize your SkinPen® Microneedling treatment for optimal results!
WHAT IS PRP THERAPY?
PRP or (Platelet Rich Plasma) combined with microneedling is one of the most effective ways to achieve quick, repairing results for your skin’s overall heath. A small amount of blood is collected in a tube just like when you have your blood drawn for lab tests. Once collected, it is placed in a centrifuge and spun. The plasma is separated from the blood and then collected into a syringe. We call this the “Golden Good Stuff”. Growth factors and platelets, we have extracted from your blood are then dripped over your skin as we microneedle over the face or areas being treated. The benefit of PRP is powerful and when combined with microneedling it is delivered to reach deeper parts of the dermis. This rejuvenates skin’s repair mechanism and stimulates collagen production.

PDO THREAD LIFT - THE NON-SURGICAL FACE LIFT ALTERNATIVE
NovaThreads are FDA-cleared, absorbable sutures placed under the facial skin to physically lift the interstitial tissue and enhance collagen production. They work especially well to tighten skin on the neck, lower and midface, and jawline, to restore the face's youthful V-shape. PDO sutures dissolve over time, allowing new collagen to grow in their place.
• This facial rejuvenation procedure is relatively quick, easy and tolerable with local
numbing. Each PDO thread takes just a minute to place, with no incisions required.
• You'll see an immediate result from the skin being lifted, with improvements in firmness
for up to a year as new collagen develops.
• Dissolvable PDO NovaThreads are less risky than the permanent sutures inserted in
thread lifts of the past, which could attract infection-causing bacteria and leave scar
tissue. Additionally, they are made in the United States.
• If you’re not ready for a surgical facelift or require maintenance of a past surgical
facelift, a thread lift is a far more affordable, less invasive option.

DERMAL FILLER INJECTIONS - FOR RESTORING VOLUME
Is volume loss in the cheeks making you look older? Do you notice lines around your nose and mouth even though you may have never smoked? Which filler is right for you?
Aging causes skin to lose elasticity and moisture. This normal aging process, plus environmental factors like sun exposure, cause different facial lines to form, including moderate to severe wrinkles and folds. There are several different types of facial lines that form around your nose and mouth. These include the parentheses lines, vertical lip lines, corner lines, and marionette lines. As you age, these lines may become more noticeable. Fillers are a fast, safe, and easy way to restore volume to thinning lips and sagging lip line, fill lines around the mouth, or lift and re-volumize hollow cheeks. Fillers are temporary and vary in how long they last. They are administered comfortably in our office with topical and/or injectable anesthetic.
Jenna will help you select the right filler(s) based on your preferences and desired outcomes. She will help you achieve natural, long-lasting results without looking overdone.
