Leveraging AccuVein Technology to Further Reduce Bruising after Injecting

At Center for Facial Rejuvenation, we are dedicated to safe practices and always educate patients on what to expect during and after their injectable appointment, including the possibility of temporary bruising. While most aesthetic practices also follow this same best practice, we continually look for ways to improve out client’s experience and outcomes with the latest innovations and technology. It is for this reason that we have added the AccuVein vein visualization technology, commonly used in hospitals, to help improve our aesthetic procedures by providing better vein visibility (that means there’s an even smaller chance of bruising!)

At CFR, we have the AccuVein AV400, a non-contact, lightweight, portable vein illumination device. It provides a visual road map of the client’s vasculature (aka, blood vessels) on the surface of the skin where injectable like BOTOX® are used. The ability to visualize a client’s unique anatomy helps us avoid veins by refining injection placement to minimize bruising during injectable procedures.

We are able to achieve superior results for our clients because of our extensive experience and participation in continuing education, but, with the addition of the AccuVein technology, we’re able to be even more precise and continue to set the bar for Fillers and BOTOX® results in Chattanooga.

When it comes to cosmetic enhancements, choose our highly experienced team of skilled Injectors, and the technology that helps improve your recovery time and results even more. Call us today to start looking and feeling your best!

Jawline Contouring without Liposuction with Kybella®

Many women and men are frustrated by a less-than-defined jawline, also known as a “double chin”, and are looking for a non-invasive solution to achieve a more chiseled profile. When our clients have moderate to severe fat below the chin (submental fat), we often recommend the injectable Kybella® to help reduce the appearance of the “second chin”.

The active ingredient in Kybella® is deoxycholic acid, a naturally-occurring molecule in the body that aids in the breakdown and absorption of submental body fat.

When injected into the fat beneath the chin, Kybella® causes the destruction of fat cells. Once destroyed, those cells cannot store or accumulate fat, and local collagen production increases. This is how clients get the jowl / jawline contour without liposuction!

At Center for Facial Rejuvenation, our Treat to Complete package (the full treatment!) of Kybella® is $1,900. While retreatment with Kybella® is not expected after a desired appearance is achieved, clients sometimes opt to use filler in the jawline, like Defyne, in addition to Kybella®, to give optimal outcomes.

When it comes to jawline definition enhancements, choose our highly experienced team of skilled Injectors—their results speak for themselves!
