Your 2016 Holiday Guide is presented by the Miami Skin Institute. Winter is coming which means Event Season is officially here. Since the “cold shoulder” look is all over the runway, we would like to help you be proud, be happy, and be free to show off those shoulders all night long! Kybella® fat-melting injections will make you feel good about wearing a strapless dress at any of your upcoming holiday events. Kybella® injections can firm up your braline more effectively than hundreds of planks AND with minimal downtime. Kybella® injections are perfect for fixing those small persistent fat deposits without having to deal with surgery or significant recovery.
Kybella® is the first and only FDA-approved nonsurgical treatment that destroys fat cells when injected into small – medium areas of fat. As such, Dr. Jegasothy can “melt” or reduce fat, much like a nonsurgical liposuction. Kybella® injections are best suited for those within 10-15% of their ideal body weight and are perfect for sculpting/fine tuning small areas that cannot be treated any other way. For more information about Kybella® fat-melting injections, call our office at (305) 569-0067 or visit our website at www.miamiskininstitute.com.
