Get a shapelier and more defined jawline with the help of this simple cosmetic injectable.

While most people associate a double chin with being overweight, even those who are within their healthy target weight can still face this jkybellasame problem. Sometimes there is just excess fat in this area and sometimes genetics play a role. As we age we may also notice a double chin forming. Whatever the reason might be, Dr. Barbara Preussner at For a New You Medical Aesthetics & Laser in Holliston, MA understands how embarrassing this issue is for many men and women. This is why we are happy to offer Kybella treatment.

What is Kybella and how does it work?

Kybella is a prescription injection and an FDA-approved treatment for targeting submental fat, or fat under the chin. This injection contains a deoxycholic acid solution, which is a molecule found within the body that breaks down fat.

When Kybella is injected into the chin, the deoxycholic acid targets and destroys the fat that has accumulated in this area to improve the chin’s shape and overall appearance.

What should I expect from Kybella treatment?

Kybella treatment is tailored to you and your needs and during your consultation, Dr. Preussner will discuss how many treatment sessions you may need to achieve optimal results.

Treatments are performed at least one month apart and some patients may need up to six sessions. This procedure is minimally invasive and doesn’t require any anesthesia, cutting or stitches.

How long do results last?

Once Kybella has destroyed the excess fat the results are permanent. Once you have achieved the ideal results through Kybella you won’t need to come in for further treatments.

Who is an ideal candidate for Kybella?

If you are dealing with embarrassing submental fat and you want to get rid of it without resorting to surgery then you may be right for Kybella. It’s important that you sit down with Dr. Preussner to discuss the benefits and limitations of treatment so you know whether it’s right for you.

If you want to improve your appearance and you think Kybella could help then it’s time to call For a New You Medical Aesthetics & Laser in Holliston, MA, to schedule a consultation. We would be happy to sit down and discuss the different treatment options that can meet your cosmetic goals. Call (508) 429-1006.

How PRP treatment can help you look younger.

Are changes to your face making you look and feel older? If so, it’s time to do something about it. It’s time for you to consider a Platelet-healthy femaleRich Plasma Treatment using microneedling. So, what is PRPT treatment? It’s a revolutionary new treatment to help you achieve younger-looking skin. Dr. Barbara Preussner at For a New You Medical Aesthetics & Laser in Holliston, Massachusetts can help you look your best, and it all begins with a younger-looking face.

Platelet-rich plasma is a component taken from your blood. The procedure begins with Dr. Preussner taking a small sample of your blood and placing it in a centrifuge. The plasma is extracted from the sample. Platelet-rich plasma is responsible for healing because it sends platelets and growth factors to an area to help heal tissue. PRP is applied to your skin and followed with microneedling.

Microneedling helps to deliver the benefits of PRP components by creating microdamage to your skin. Microneedling on its own helps produce more collagen to heal the microdamage. The extra collagen helps your skin appear firmer and younger.

When microneedling is applied after the platelet-rich plasma, the treated areas are able to absorb the platelet-rich plasma easily which accelerates the effects of the PRP treatment. With PRP treatment and microneedling, you can count on:

  • Little or no downtime
  • No cutting or surgery
  • Naturally beautiful results

Some of the age-blasting benefits of PRP combined with microneedling include:

  • Smoother, rejuvenated skin
  • Restoration of youthful volume and contours to your face
  • Increased blood flow to your skin, resulting in a better skin tone and color

You can look younger, and platelet rich plasma combined with microneedling can help. To find out more about PRP treatment, microneedling, and other aesthetic and medical skin care, call Dr. Barbara Preussner at For a New You Medical Aesthetics & Laser in Holliston, Massachusetts today at (508) 429-1006.

Laser hair removal is an effective method for permanently reducing unwanted hair. Shaving in the bath or shower daily can be time-laser hair removalconsuming, and unwanted hair often begins growing back within a day. Shaving can also irritate the skin. Waxing is another option, with longer lasting results than shaving, but it can be painful and cause skin irritation, as well. Laser hair removal is a quick and effective method for revealing smoother skin by permanently removing unwanted hair. At For a New You, Dr. Barbara Preussner and her staff provide laser hair removal in Holliston, MA.

Laser Hair Removal

In Holliston, laser hair removal can be used for removing unwanted hair all over the body, including the face, underarms, bikini line, arms, and legs. Laser hair removal is performed using a gentle light beam that is carefully waved across the skin in the desired area. Melanin in the hair follicles of the skin absorbs light energy from the laser. The light energy damages the hair follicle so that it cannot generate new hair growth.

Since hair grows in cycles, several laser hair removal treatments might be necessary to completely remove all unwanted hair in a particular area. Most patients achieve the desired results between three to six treatment sessions. The number of treatment sessions needed often depends on your hair texture, hair color, and skin type. Hair removal is quicker on some hair textures and skin types, and can take longer with others. Laser hair removal works on all skin types and is an effective method for removing unwanted hair safely without damaging the surrounding skin.

Laser hair removal is a safe method for permanently removing unwanted hair and achieving smoother skin. Save time and avoid the hassle and irritation of other hair removal methods, such as shaving and waxing. For laser hair removal in Holliston, MA, schedule an appointment with Dr. Preussner by calling For a New You at (508) 429-1006.
