Ready for a modern-made too? FDA approved, Jeuveau is for a modern you! It is an injectable that helps prevent and treat wrinkles and fine lines between the eyebrows, forehead, and around the eyes: it is long-lasting and a favorite of Dr. Mohandas.
Unfortunately, we lose volume in our faces every day by smiling and laughing. Over time, repetitive “folding” of the skin causes collagen to break down and lose volume and elasticity, resulting in fine lines, folds, and wrinkles. HA fillers are a great way to combat this. At Dr. Mohandas Medspa, we offer a number of different fillers.
The RHA Collection
RHA – Resilient Hyaluronic Acid is made to move with the dynamic demands of your face. When used, the results are instant, natural, and long-lasting.
Versa™+ and Lips are FDA-approved hyaluronic acid dermal fillers that the doctor uses to treat moderate to severe facial wrinkles and folds and lip augmentation.
Sculptra is not a regular filler – it’s a bio-stimulator, which stimulates your body to grow its collagen. Unlike fillers, you do not see immediate results. However, over time the results are fabulous and long-lasting!
Did you know that most women will have cellulite in their lifetime? About 9 out of 10 women. That means your strenuous workouts and healthy eating habits are great for your fitness and overall wellness. Still, it won’t do much to reduce your cellulite. Cellulite is not fat and it is not caused by how much or what you eat or because you are not exercising enough. Three things together cause those signature dimples.
Skin: Over time, skin thins.
Fat: Fat cells enlarge and push against the skin.
Fibrous Bands: The fibrous bands beneath the skin thicken and cause tension and the signature dimpling on your butt.
QWO is a non-surgical treatment clinically proven to reduce moderate to severe cellulite in adult women. The patient may achieve visible results in 10 weeks.*
As we all know, a double chin isn’t flattering on anyone! Whether it’s the result of aging, genetics, or weight gain, most patients say it makes them appear older and heavier. In addition, it is often unresponsive to diet and exercise, and until recently, surgery was the only practical option. However, a new medication, Kybella, eliminates fat under the chin and neck – without needing surgery.
Kybella was FDA-approved in 2015 and is an injectable substance that dissolves excess fat under the chin and underarms. A plastic surgeon or trained clinical professional administers Kybella, and is it a completely non-invasive, in-office procedure. Each treatment usually takes about ten minutes, where a series of injections are placed directly into the fatty area. So say bye-bye to double chin and armpit fat!
Kybella is a manufactured form of a substance called deoxycholic acid. This substance naturally occurs in the human body and is used to emulsify fats. When the healthcare professional injects Kybella into neck fat, it breaks down fat cell membranes, leading to their destruction and metabolic absorption by the body. As a result, the fat permanently disappears, and the neck achieves a more favorable contour.
Partial results appear after several weeks, and typically, several treatments are necessary to achieve the optimum effect. The number of procedures and injections depends on the size of the double chin and the patient’s desired results. Since Kybella is entirely non-surgical, there is less recovery, and it leaves no scar compared to liposuction. The possible side effects include bruising, swelling, and numbness around the injection site. However, most patients are thrilled with their results and report looking younger and feeling more confident.
