Many treatment options are available now that safely and successfully reduce many signs of aging on our faces without surgery or the need for a long recovery. Although more invasive cosmetic surgery may be needed for more significant or deeper creases, wrinkles, or sagging skin, these minimally invasive treatments work great for mild to moderate conditions.
As your body ages, it begins to produce less molecules, such as collagen, that give your skin its elasticity and ability to rebound from movement, which can cause a sagging appearance. Combine this with the increase in fat in areas like under the chin, and more specific treatments may be needed to achieve the desired look.
This increased fullness below the chin, called submental fullness, can give the appearance of a double chin or the loss of definition between the chin and neck. KYBELLA® is the first injectable dermal treatment approved by the FDA to treat submental fullness and reduce the amount of fat cells below the jawline.
There are 3 great benefits of KYBELLA® treatments to improve the aesthetics of your face, especially when compared to other, more invasive treatments.
- KYBELLA® uses a molecule naturally found in your body. The formulation of KYBELLA® uses deoxycholic acid, naturally found in your body, to destroy fat cells. This reduces the likelihood of an adverse reaction to the injection.
- There is no recovery or downtime. Although there may be some tenderness and bruising in the treatment area, these are temporary, and you can return to your everyday life right after each treatment session.
- Treatment sessions can fit into your schedule. As effective as KYBELLA® treatments are, they take less than 30 minutes per session. Though multiple treatments are needed for the best results, these can fit into your schedule with minimal disruption.
