And Now, Your Neck: Option 2 – Kybella
Last week, you heard about the radiofrequency microneedling treatment, Infini. This week, we’ll talk about Kybella, one of the latest nonsurgical options for an aging neck. Clearly, one of the most pressing cosmetic concerns for women and men, a wrinkling neck presents numerous treatment options, all of which yield effective and safe results.
Despite what you may have read about drinking extra water, doing neck exercises and rubbing retinoids into your skin, superficial efforts such as these really can’t reverse the signs of aging. Definitive improvement is possible, though, with minimally invasive FDA-approved procedures that we perform routinely in our offices.
In fact, I’m proud to be one of the first physicians in the area to offer Kybella, a nonsurgical treatment that slims and contours the area below and around your chin and neck. It’s the first and only FDA-approved treatment to reduce submental fullness, more commonly known as “double chin.” Submental fullness affects both men and women, and can be influenced by several factors such as aging, genetics and weight gain. A double chin is often resistant to diet and exercise and can detract from a balanced facial appearance, resulting in an older and heavier look.
After a series of injections, the fat cells under your chin will be permanently destroyed. Once this happens, they can’t accumulate or store more fat, so your new thin contour is expected to remain over time. In the end, your double chin will be minimized, and lines and wrinkles will have been decreased.
As with all of our treatments, a specific plan will be developed just for you, depending on your individual needs and concerns. Call our office today to schedule a complimentary consultation.
Next week, we’ll talk about another safe and effective procedure for your neck…Thermage CPT.
See you soon.
