Beauty is an aspect that is coveted by every human being, and we desire to have stunning looks. As a result, most people will go to great lengths to achieve beauty. Though temporary and short-lasting, cosmetics are widely used by people worldwide to enhance beauty.

For people who want to achieve prolonged beauty, there are modern procedures such as PDO thread (Sugar Threads) lift and Kybella®, which work incredibly well. The techniques are non-surgical, and the end result is a beautiful, youthful look for a longer period of time.


How does PDO thread lift (Sugar Threads) work?

PDO thread lift (Sugar Thread) is a non-invasive skin treatment that uses special absorbent threads to tighten and lift the skin on the face. The PDO threads (Sugar Threads) are injected under the skin, stimulating the production of collagen.

The effects of the PDO threads (Sugar Threads) are immediate, and the results are visible within three days and can last up to 18 months. Being a minimally invasive procedure, the PDO thread (Sugar Threads) lift procedure is safe and low-risk. The side effects are mild and not severe.

What is Kybella®?

Naturally, our body produces deoxycholic acid that breakdown down and absorbs the fat cells.

Kybella® treatment comprises of synthetic deoxycholic acid that is injected directly into the skin around the lower chin or gut areas. Kybella® treatment works by breaking down the fat cells, and the body excretes the melted fats naturally.


How does Kybella® work?

Once injected, the deoxycholic acid destroys the fat cells beneath the treatment area. It starts by removing the present fat stores, and then it inhibits the cells from accumulating any fat. Most of the patients will not require to have an extra treatment after undergoing a Kybella®. This is because the deoxycholic acid stops any fat buildup making Kybella a long-term treatment method.

Since the treatment requires a series of injections, the results will fully be visible within 4-6 weeks. Most people will require to undergo 2-4 treatments to achieve their desired results.


How safe is Kybella®?

Kybella® treatment was approved as a safe procedure by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) back in 2015.

Since there is no major surgical procedure required, Kybella® is considered a safe skin treatment, and the side effects are very mild. It is an effective alternative to invasive procedures such as liposuction.


Who is best-suited for Kybella® Treatment?

Both males and females are eligible. If you have some fatty tissues that have accumulated under your chin or the gut area and are 18 years and above, then you can have Kybella® treatment.

However, expectant and lactating mothers are exempted from the treatment. Also, if you have an infection around the chin/gut area or have a keloids history, you are not allowed to undergo this treatment.

It’s very important to consult a professional practitioner first before going for the treatment. At O De Rose medical spa, we have highly trained practitioners available to take you through the process for exceptional results.


Is PDO thread lift better than Kybella® treatment?

It is very vital to first understand how the two treatments work. Kybella® breaks down the fat that causes a double chin. The fatty tissues around the gut area are not necessarily brought about by ageing; even young people may develop a double chin.

On the other hand, PDO thread lift works by tightening and lifting the skin. When these two procedures are combined, they produce the best results. This is because once Kybella® breaks down the fat, the chin area is bound to have some loose and sagging skin. A PDO thread lift treatment should follow to tighten and lift the loose skin after a Kybella®.

Overall, you will have the final say on your preferred treatment choice. At O De Rose medical spa, we understand the value of our clients and treat them with the utmost respect.
