As usual, we are always on the cutting edge of new therapies and products. A new injectable is now here. It is called Kybella and used to minimize fat in the neck. It works by destroying the cell wall of the fat cells and emptying the contents thereby eliminating the cell, not just reducing the size. This is the most important part because if you simply reduce the size of the fat cell, it can grow large again. This is like a non-surgical liposuction of the neck, the difference being less complications, no anesthesia, and similar outcomes. This is a 15-20 minute treatment in office and relatively painless. Two to four treatment sessions are required. Call us now for a consult as we have limited times available early in the process.
If you simply want to reduce the muscular bands and loose skin, there are radio frequency treatments and Ulthera (ultrasound) as well as Botox! That’s right, Botox can improve the appearance of your neck back to a more youthful appearance.
