CoolSculpting® helps eliminate stubborn fat safely and effectively without surgery or downtime. Diet and exercise-resistant fat can be safely targeted and eliminated with this FDA-cleared fat reduction procedure. Using CoolSculpting will leave you feeling and looking great from every angle. With CoolSculpting, fat cells beneath the skin are safely and effectively targeted by precisely controlled cooling. During the treatment, fat cells crystallize (freeze) and die. Over time, your body naturally processes fat and eliminates dead cells, leaving you more sculpted. Since CoolSculpting is a non-surgical procedure, you can usually return to work immediately.

Skin tightening with PDO Threads is a natural alternative to facelifts, neck lifts, and other cosmetic procedures. In this minimally invasive procedure, the skin is lifted with little downtime. PDO threads are flexible, durable, and absorbable sutures. In order to make the PDO thread procedure as comfortable as possible, a topical anesthetic will be applied before the procedure. The PDO threads are inserted through a long cannula beneath the skin. Threading will be repeated until the desired lift is achieved. While the threads lift the skin, they do not fix severe laxity. Patients can resume normal activities after the treatment, which may take up to two hours. It takes about 6-9 months for the threads to dissolve while stimulating collagen production and rejuvenating the skin.

Injectable Kybella® is FDA-approved for eliminating fat storage under the chin, which is commonly referred to as a "double chin." The active ingredient in Kybella is deoxycholic acid, which destroys fat storage membranes, thus preventing fat cells from storing fat. The body's natural processes ultimately eliminate or significantly reduce fat in the treated area, giving you a chin profile you'll love! The experts at Sheperd Integrative Dermatology also use Kybella® to eliminate fat in other areas of the body, such as the jowls, the lower buttocks, the armpits, the inner knees, the lower belly, as well as that annoying "bra bulge." With Kybella®, fat cells are only destroyed in the treated areas, so there is little downtime associated with the procedure. The treatment process is quick and convenient for most patients over 18, but discussing your individual concerns and goals with one of our medical professionals is important.
