Most individuals who are looking to improve their appearance would like to avoid surgery if it is at all possible. Thankfully, there are a variety of non-invasive and minimally-invasive treatments that can be used to help you fight the aging process and improve the way you look. KYBELLA® is one such treatment. It is designed to help individuals get rid of their double chin.
Who is a Good Candidate for Kybella®?
KYBELLA® is especially designed to treat neck fat. This is a common concern that individuals across the United States and around the world have. It is possible for an individual to have a double chin at any age. However, it is most commonly seen in individuals who are getting older. In years past, the only options that were available in the cosmetic world included liposuction and facelifts as a way to address a double chin. Now, KYBELLA® can be used to help individuals reduce their neck fat.
KYBELLA®is designed to help individuals address fat under their chin. It is not designed to help individuals who have cosmetic issues that affect their muscles, glands, skin, or bones on their neck or jaw line. For example, if your double chin consists of a lot of excess skin, KYBELLA® will do nothing to shrink the skin or reduce wrinkles on your neck skin. It will only remove unwanted fat.
What if you are dealing with neck bands? These lines can cause a person to feel self-conscious and not like their appearance. Thankfully, there are options that are available. In order to relax neck wrinkles, BOTOX® can be used. Or an individual may get good results with a surgical neck lift.
In order to find out about your candidacy for KYBELLA®, please contact us. We would be happy to set up a consultation for you today.
