What is KYBELLA?
Just a little bit of extra fat in the upper neck area can create the presence of a "double chin." These additional pockets of fat below the chin (also known as the submental area) may be caused by aging, weight fluctuations, or genetics that lead to a softer jawline and chin for a less defined profile. Provo, UT board-certified physician Dr. Stuart B. Porter is happy to provide a new way to reduce neck fat at Xage Medical Spa. Approved by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA), KYBELLA is the first nonsurgical treatment for reducing submental fat in men and women over age 18. The active component in KYBELLA is a synthetic version of deoxycholic acid (DA), which acts like the natural DA in your body. After KYBELLA is injected beneath the chin, you may see a visible reduction in the volume of fat. When the fat is destroyed, the cells will not return, so you are able to enjoy your new, slim neck and defined jawline for years to come. To see if you can benefit from KYBELLA injections, please schedule an appointment with our team at Xage Medical Spa in Utah County.

"I just finished my 3rd and last Femilift treatment a week and half ago. For all you women that have a weakening bladder, I STONGLY recommend this treatment. I had a hysterectomy, including removal of my cervix about 12 years ago. Since I no longer have those parts to help keep things in their place, I gradually noticed several changes. I was that woman that couldn’t multitask with a sneeze, cough, laugh or even clear my throat while walking. I am proud to report that this is no longer a problem. Dr. Porter recommended this procedure and now here I am, multitasking like a pro. I noticed some improvement a couple weeks after the first treatment, the most improvement after the second treatment and the last treatment just sealed the deal, literally. An unexpected outcome is one I am super happy about. I have been plagued with recurring bladder infections for years. I haven’t had a bladder infection since the first treatment 3 months ago. Though I am purely speculating, I feel this is directly related to the Femilift treatments. It makes sense. Before the treatments, I had a weak sense of when my bladder was full, therefore my bladder would be full for awhile before I would get the intense urge. After several times, my bladder would just be irritated and I would end up with an infection. I lived on AZO and cranberry to try and manage some comfort. Now, my pelvic floor is stronger and I can can sense my full bladder sooner, which I now visit the restroom way more often. At first this was annoying, but now that I realize I am sensing things like I should and I haven’t had anymore irritation or infections, I’ll take it. Now ladies, and partners of those ladies considering Femilift, let’s talk sex. Since this treatment involves a laser inserted into the vagina, and it strengthens and tightens the urethra, it makes sense that it tightens the vagina as well. Big bonus. Not only have I noticed tightening, but more lubrication and sensitivity (the good kind, not the painful kind). If I just scared you away because I mentioned something being inserted into your vagina and then a laser zapping away, bear with me. 1. The laser has a comfortable width. 2. It has a sheath cover that is only yours and kept on site so you don’t have to remember to bring it with you. 3. The only time you feel any discomfort is when the they are treating the opening of the vagina since there are many more nerve endings there. For me this felt like an intense moment during a bladder infection, but the sensation immediately ceased when the treatment was over. 4. The entirety of each treatment only takes about 10 minutes. The consult and prep takes more time than the actual treatment. Finally, let’s talk about the cost. This isn’t covered by insurance, but when compared to the downtime, recovery and risk of infection of surgery, this is way worth it. Xage Medical spa was offering a promotion at the time of my consultation, which I was able to get a discount. But, I would have paid full price. The staff was very welcoming, knowledgeable and accommodating. They know what they are doing and how to provide a great experience and results."- T.H. / Google / Dec 30, 2019

Can I have Kybella injections?
The ideal patients for KYBELLA injections have excess fat in the upper neck (submental area), which causes a double chin appearance. These injections address resistant pockets of fat that are not minimized with usual weight loss techniques due to genetics, aging, and other conditions. If you are at a healthy weight, but diet and exercise have not helped to remove the fat in your neck, KYBELLA may be the right option for you. While KYBELLA may correct small or moderate amounts of fat in the upper neck, larger pockets of fat may require surgical liposuction.
Our Kybella Injection Technique
KYBELLA is performed during an in-office appointment at Xage Medical Spa. Dr. Porter can apply a numbing agent to the injection area if preferred after the skin is clean. The injections take about 15 – 20 minutes, which comprises of multiple small injections into the upper neck area. Some patients may only need one treatment to reach their goal, while other patients may require several treatments spaced three weeks between each appointment at Xage Medical Spa.
What to Expect with KYBELLA®
KYBELLA treatments will not interfere with your ability to drive, so you are able to leave our office when you feel ready to resume your usual activities. You may notice temporary bruising, swelling, or numbness under your chin, although this should not last longer than a few days. Call Xage Medical Spa immediately if you are experiencing any unusual side effects, like difficulty swallowing, facial muscle weakness, or if your facial expressions are uneven. While the fat that is eliminated will not return, the cells that remain can become larger. You need to maintain a stable weight after your KYBELLA treatments to prevent new pockets of fat from developing. Ideal results following this treatment can leave your neck appearing sleeker and slimmer and your neckline will be better defined.
