This Thanksgiving, take care of your Turkey Neck skin.
Get rid of your turkey neck this Thanksgiving! The term “turkey neck” describes the wrinkly or sagging skin on the neck as one ages. Tightening of the neck muscles and protecting the skin can be achieved with a good skin regimen and exercise. However, you might require surgery or a Kybella injection to remove extra skin.
What is Kybella?
The main ingredient in Kybella is deoxycholic acid, a molecule the body naturally makes that helps break down and absorb fat from food. When injected into the submental fat area ( double chin area), Kybella works to destroy fat cells, resulting in a more contoured and defined jawline.
What should I anticipate, and how does the treatment process work?
Before beginning, you must always speak with our advanced injector, Dr. Ellie Zarnegar, DMSc, PA. The consultation allows Dr. Ellie to assess if you are allergic to any ingredients.
The procedure begins with cleaning. The chin area must be cleaned and numbed before the KYBELLA injections. Following this, injections will be administered below the chin into the double chin area.
Swelling is normal and will increase periodically over the next 24-42 hours. This reaction is natural, and swelling will decrease within four weeks. The chin area will be tender after the injections, and you can aid in healing by using ice packs throughout the day and applying a neck band. They will not only help with discomfort but will also reduce swelling.
How many treatments are needed?
For the most part, we recommend that most patients get 3–4 treatments for the best results. Lingering submental fat will be removed four to six weeks after your first appointment.
What are some of the benefits of the procedure?
A Non-Surgical Solution: KYBELLA benefits those who shy away from surgery. Going under the needle is scary, and unlike traditional procedures for fat reduction, such as liposuction, Kybella offers a non-invasive alternative.
This means no incisions, minimal downtime, and reduced risks associated with surgery.
Targeted Fat Reduction: By specifically targeting submental fat, providers can reach precise results without affecting surrounding tissues and ensure a more sculpted appearance without compromising facial expression.
Boosting your confidence: The elimination of a double chin can have a profound impact on one’s self-esteem. KYBELLA enhances physical appearance and contributes to an individual’s overall confidence.
The results achieved with KYBELLA are permanent, so your beautiful jawline stays with you forever! Maintaining your weight is important, and despite that, some patients say that their results are still there even after weight gain!
Natural Results: KYBELLA works to break down fat cells, allowing for a natural and subtle transformation. Since the injections are done in 3–4 sessions, the gradual process ensures the changes appear authentic and harmonious with the patient’s facial features.
Minimal Downtime: The best part about this procedure! Individuals can resume their daily activities shortly after the procedure, making it a super convenient option for those with busy lifestyles and schedules.
