Kybella is an FDA-approved injectable treatment used for reducing submental fat, often referred to as the "double chin." It contains deoxycholic acid, a naturally occurring substance in the body that aids in the breakdown and absorption of dietary fat. So many adults are self-conscious of this stubborn area - enter Kybella - and start looking snatched

The benefits of Kybella treatments include:

1. Non-surgical Approach: Kybella offers a non-surgical, minimally-invasive alternative to reduce the appearance of a double chin. It is an injectable treatment that does not require anesthesia or incisions.

2. Targeted Fat Reduction: Kybella is specifically formulated to address the submental fat under the chin. It works by destroying fat cells, resulting in a more contoured and defined jawline.

3. Minimal Downtime: Unlike surgical procedures, Kybella injections usually involve minimal downtime. Most people can resume their regular activities shortly after the treatment, although swelling and bruising is common.

4. Long-lasting Results: Kybella permanently destroys fat cells in the treated area. Once the desired results are achieved, further treatment is typically not required.

5. Confidence!!!: Kybella can help improve self-esteem and confidence by reducing the appearance of a double chin and enhancing the facial profile. This is an area that many people struggle with, and prior to the development of this treatment, was only really improved by surgery. 

As with any medical procedure, it's important to consult with a qualified healthcare professional to determine if Kybella is suitable for you, discuss potential risks or side effects, and understand the expected outcomes based on your specific situation. On the day of the treatment, the provider will cleanse the treatment area and use markings to guide the injection process. They may also apply a topical numbing cream or use ice packs to help minimize any potential discomfort. The provider will use a very fine needle to inject the medication into the targeted areas of the submental area, and the number of injections will vary for each client. Some people report mild discomfort or a burning/stinging sensation. Following Kybella treatment, you might experience swelling, redness, bruising, or numbness in the treated area. These side effects are generally temporary and subside within a few days to a few weeks. Depending on your specific needs, multiple treatment sessions may be necessary to achieve optimal results. Generally, sessions are spaced about a month apart. As the fat cells are gradually eliminated by the body, you will notice a reduction in the appearance of submental fat, creating a slimmer profile. Visible results typically become noticeable within 4-6 weeks after each treatment session. Kybella is considered a permanent treatment, as the treated fat cells are permanently destroyed. However, maintaining a healthy lifestyle is important to prevent the accumulation of new fat cells in the future.

Are you worried about the effects of aging on your skin? It's time to take action!


Aging is a natural process that we all go through...While we can’t stop time, we can certainly slow down the signs of aging and delay their onset. Preventative measures are crucial in protecting our skin from damage and maintaining a healthy and youthful-looking glow.


Protect Your Skin From the Sun


One of the most effective ways to protect your skin from aging is to limit your sun exposure. Ultraviolet (UV) radiation can cause damage to your skin cells, leading to wrinkles, age spots, and skin cancer. To protect your skin, apply a broad-spectrum sunscreen with at least SPF 30 every day, wear protective clothing and a hat, and seek shade during the peak hours of the sun.


Adopt a Healthy Lifestyle


A healthy lifestyle of a well-balanced diet, regular exercise, minimal alcohol intake, and cessation of smoking contribute to youthful skin elasticity, reduction of breakouts, less wrinkles, and overall skin health.


Practice Good Skincare


Establishing a consistent skincare routine is essential in prevention of the premature signs of aging. When choosing skincare products, opt for those that are gentle and contain nourishing and hydrating ingredients like vitamin C, retinoids, and hyaluronic acid. Cleansing, exfoliating, and moisturizing your skin can help remove dead skin cells, promote cell turnover, and keep your skin hydrated and plump. Don’t forget to remove your makeup before bedtime to allow your skin to breathe and repair overnight.


Get Professional Treatments


In addition to adopting healthy lifestyle habits and a daily skincare regimen, consider professional treatments to prevent signs of aging. Services like chemical peels and injectables like Botox and dermal fillers can help reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, improve skin texture and tone, and restore lost volume.


Despite our best efforts, we can only do so much on our own. It is possible that even if we take great care of our skin, damage can still occur. It is important to take action and seek treatments in this case as soon as possible. Ignoring problematic skin conditions can lead to more serious issues down the line. By getting ahead of the game and seeking in-spa treatments early on, you can significantly delay the effects of aging and keep your skin looking young and bright for longer.


At edit, we offer a plethora of services and products to help you achieve and maintain healthy, youthful-looking skin. Our experts will work with you to create a customized treatment plan that fits your unique needs and goals. Your skin will thank you!

Your eyebrows are an important component to your face structure and the framing of your eyes. With time and over-tweezing/waxing, the fluffy thick brows we once had can thin out and contribute to an aged appearance. 


Are you tired of drawing your eyebrows every day, only to have them smudge, fade, or look uneven or unnatural? Say goodbye to that hassle and say hello to microblading! With our state-of-the-art tools and pigments, we can create lasting, waterproof results that require no daily maintenance.


Microblading is a semi-permanent cosmetic procedure that involves the use of a handheld tool to create hair-like strokes that mimic the look of natural eyebrows. The high-quality pigment used in microblading can last up to 2 years. 


Why should you get microblading? For starters, it saves you time in your daily routine since you won’t have to draw your eyebrows every day. Instead, you’ll wake up with beautiful, natural-looking eyebrows. Additionally, microblading can help you achieve your desired eyebrow shape and enhance your overall appearance. 


The procedure takes roughly 2 hours and we book a second appointment 4/6 weeks out from the first application to go over everything again to help with longevity. The strokes will gradually fade as the months go on and it’s important to know that there are several factors that can cause microblading to fade faster than expected. 

Some of these factors include:

1. Exposure to sunlight: Sunlight is one of the main factors that contribute to the fading of microblading pigment. UV rays can cause the pigment to break down quicker, which can lead to a lighter appearance of the strokes.


2. Oily and sensitive skin: People with oily and sensitive skin tend to experience faster fading of their microblading due to the buildup of oil and sweat. The natural oils in your skin can cause the pigment to settle shallowly, making it more prone to fading.


3. Poor aftercare: Proper aftercare is essential for the longevity of your microblading. Avoiding activities like swimming and excessive sweating can ensure that your brows last for as long as possible. Neglecting to follow aftercare instructions can result in loss of pigment or infection.


4. Certain medications and topicals: Certain medications, such as blood thinners, can affect the healing process, leading to faster fading of microblading. Vitamin C, Vitamin A, Glycloic Acids and chemical peels are all brighteners that should be avoided on and around the eyebrow shape.


It's essential to communicate with your microblading artist and follow their aftercare instructions to ensure the best possible outcome and longevity of your brow work.


It is important to note that coming back to your microblading artist before the strokes have completed faded is the best route to go. When there is still a shadow or a shape left, the application process is smoother and less expensive than getting the whole procedure done again from the start.


Whether you're looking to add shape, depth, or fullness, we can help. So what are you waiting for? Book your microblading appointment today and experience the benefits of this amazing cosmetic procedure!
