The hot summer sun doesn’t allow for scarves and turtlenecks – which means your neck and décolleté are on full display for the world to see. If you’re self-conscious about that area of your body due to excess fat or sagging skin, you may hesitate to wear a revealing summer wardrobe. Just as you would do abdominal exercises for a flat bikini tummy, you can improve the appearance of your neck with KYBELLA – a simple, non-surgical, and FDA-approved treatment.
Surgical options: What is a Neck Lift or Chin Enhancement?
A neck lift, also called a lower rhytidectomy, is a cosmetic procedure that tightens the skin around the jawline and neck. Someone might undergo this procedure due to jowls caused by excess fat or skin, fatty deposits underneath the chin, muscle banding, and loose neck skin.
Alternatively, an individual with a sagging chin can opt for genioplasty surgery. Genioplasty encompasses a variety of chin alterations, including height reduction or rounding with osteotomy or an implant to create a more pronounced profile.
How to Get a Fresh Neck without Going Under the Knife
Rather than perform invasive surgeries to achieve an appealing neck and chin, qualified aesthetic dermatologists now inject KYBELLA, an innovative treatment introduced in July of 2015. KYBELLA, much like other injectable such as Juvéderm and Restylane, improves facial profiles and the appearance of submental (below the chin) fat. If you have multiple folds on your chin area, also known as double chin,” KYBELLA can help.
KYBELLA works by targeting fat cells in the neck and chin area without damaging the surrounding tissue. Patients can expect to undergo one to five treatment sessions, each using one or two vials of KYBELLA. Your individual regimen depends on how much submental fat to target in the neck and chin to achieve your desired look. Treatments are scheduled at least a month apart, and results are commonly achieved in just two rounds of injections*.
The Benefits of KYBELLA
Three benefits set KYBELLA apart from other neck and chin enhancement procedures: KYBELLA is non-invasive; you don’t have to undergo anesthesia or have a prosthetic placed in your face. And since treatment results are gradual, friends and family won’t notice drastic results overnight that might inspire awkward comments. Further, you won’t have to miss work or life commitments because of extensive recovery times often associated with more aggressive neck and chin surgeries.
KYBELLA doesn’t require a lifetime of injections and doctor’s visits. KYBELLA is a long-term solution for fat cells.
KYBELLA Treatment with Dr. Mariano Busso
Your neck and chin are exposed almost as often as your face. Keeping up your appearance isn’t just about eliminating wrinkles or dieting. The chin is one of the most difficult areas to keep slender – especially because muscle-toning exercises usually address areas below the collarbone. KYBELLA lets you put your best face forward.
