How Can I Get Rid of Sagging Jowls Without Surgery?
Sagging jowls aren’t always caused by changes in weight. The bothersome condition can also affect healthy men and women thanks to genetics or the natural aging process. Genetic-related submental fullness can be almost impossible to treat with diet and exercise alone. If you’re bothered by the frontal or profile appearance of your jowls but aren’t ready for surgery, you may want to consider non-surgical Kybella® treatments.
*Individual results may vary.
At Capital Laser & Skin Care, we design treatments around your needs. We understand that many of our patients have busy lifestyles which is why we offer a variety of minimally-invasive procedures to address your concerns sans downtime. For sagging jowls, we love Kybella® treatments because they’re quick, easy, and produce exceptional long-term results.
Kybella® treatments are done in-office by our board-certified dermatologists. Before treatment, a topical numbing cream will be applied to minimize any discomfort. Problem areas will then be marked, and your injector will gently distribute Kybella® at precise depths for an optimal outcome. In most cases, you can expect to be in and out of the office within the hour.
Kybella® uses a synthetic form of deoxycholic acid to break down and aid in the absorption of unwanted fat cells below the chin. Because Kybella® has the potential to harm surrounding tissue, it’s vital that you choose a highly-skilled injector who is well-versed in the treatment. Over time, your body will naturally metabolize dead fat cells leaving you with a more contoured profile.
The number of treatments you’ll need depends on your aesthetic goals. Most patients are able to see results with just 2 or 3 treatments. More severe submental fullness can take up to 6 Kybella® sessions to correct. Kybella® is ideally meant as a lifetime treatment. Once existing fat cells are expelled from the body, they’re unable to reform. Touch-up procedures can be avoided by maintaining healthy lifestyle habits.
