Loose skin occurs due in part to the natural aging process, loss of fullness and weight in various areas of the body. Loose skin on the face is a difficult area to correct even with surgery.
If you’re in search of a non-surgical solution to turn back the clock, we’ve got just the treatment for you. Kybella is a skin tightening treatment and the first FDA-approved, injectable drug used to reduce the appearance of submental fat, more commonly known as a double chin.
Because of the extremely limited options for correction, double chin caused by submental fat has been an under-treated aesthetic issue.
A double chin can make you look older and heavier no matter what your age or weight. And, in many cases, this fat doesn’t respond to lifestyle changes such as diet and exercise because genetics is often the cause.
If you’re weighing the benefits of Kybella vs. liposuction, here are some main points to keep in mind while making your decision.
A liposuction surgery is done in a single visit. With Kybella, you might require a few treatments spaced out at least a month apart. But liposuction is surgery, so you’re looking at a longer, harder recovery. Price-wise, Kybella might be a bit more expensive depending on the number of sessions you need, but both treatment methods are generally comparable.
But the best thing about Kybella is that it’s less invasive. You avoid all the negative issues involved with surgery, such as anesthesia and other risks associated with surgery, such as the risk of infection and longer downtime.
It’s important to note that Kybella can only be used for removal of fat under the chin. If you have loose skin in this area such as what is known as turkey neck, Kybella cannot address that problem. If you have a double chin and saggy skin, liposuction might be a better choice for you, or you may want to consider other non-surgical skin tightening treatments.
Kybella is a safe, non-surgical procedure, so your treatment is performed in the comfortable, welcoming setting of Wake Health Medical Group. Before the treatment begins, any pain relief will be administered if appropriate in your case. Then, using a special grid, your Certified Injection Specialist will carefully draw the boundaries for the injections on your skin.
Your Injection Specialist will then use the temporary grid marked on your chin as a guide and give you a specific number of injections, depending on your particular needs. The procedure is simple and straightforward, taking roughly 20 minutes to complete. Then you’re on your way.
