Body Treatments Q&A

What are body treatments?

Chicque Aesthetics wants to help you look your best. The professional estheticians offer two types of treatment.

Kybella

Kybella is mainly used to help dissolve mild to severe fat cells in the area under your chin. It’s an FDA-approved injectable treatment administered to improve your appearance. It’s made of synthetic deoxycholic acid, which is a manmade substance that helps break down fat cells.

Venus Freeze

Venus Freeze treats wrinkles and tightens your skin in the face and arms. It uses (MP)2 technology that delivers multipolar radiofrequency and magnetic fields.

During your consultation, your provider at Chicque Aesthetics assesses your needs and determines what treatment might be right for you.

How do Kybella body treatments work?

Deoxycholic acid is a synthetic version of what’s found naturally in your body. When the substance is injected into the fat deposits under your chin, it destroys the targeted fat cells. Then your body absorbs and eliminates them.

To administer Kybella, your provider applies numbing cream if you have sensitive skin and then penetrates the shallow layer of your skin with multiple, tiny injections. 

The procedure takes about 20 minutes, and you may have some swelling under your chin for a few days. Most people have the most successful outcome with 3-5 treatments.

Once the fat cells are destroyed, they don’t regenerate. However, if you gain weight, new fat cells might return to the treated area. That’s why it’s best to maintain a healthy, stable weight after your series of procedures.

How do Venus Freeze body treatments work?

Venus Freeze combines radiofrequency and magnetic technology to deliver heat underneath the skin’s surface and stimulate the body’s natural healing process. 

Targeted areas might include:

  • Around your mouth
  • Around your eyes
  • Jawline
  • Neck
  • Upper arms

When the cells respond to the treatment, new collagen and elastin form, resulting in the appearance of smoother, tighter skin.

The process takes about 20-30 minutes per session. The procedure is painless, only producing a warming sensation. Any redness subsides about an hour after treatment. To get the results you want, you might need treatments performed weekly for 4-8 weeks.
