Double Chin Trouble? Kybella and NovaThreads Can Help
Kybella and NovaThreads are two safe and effective non-surgical treatments in Northern Virginia that can banish a double chin.
As we all know, skin on the neck is not only delicate, but it’s often overlooked in terms of skincare and sun protection. As a result, this area in especially susceptible to signs of aging, such as wrinkles, skin laxity, and sagging.
Not only that, but the area under the chin is also prone to localized fat deposits that may persist regardless of a healthy diet and regular exercise.
All of these factors can lead to the formation of a double chin in men and women, making them look older and heavier and feel self-conscious about their appearance.
Keep reading to learn which of these double chin solutions is right for you and why.
NovaThreads for Lifting and Tightening Skin
When a double chin is the result of skin laxity and loss of collagen and elastin, aesthetic experts recommend a thread lift with NovaThreads.
This non-surgical procedure lifts and tightens the lower face and neck and can be performed in an office-setting in under one hour.
NovaThreads are made of PDO biocompatible sutures that are strategically injected under the skin to provide immediate lifting for a more youthful and refreshed appearance.
In addition, these sutures stimulate an inflammatory response and promote the production of new collagen and elastin.
Consequently, over the course of the next several months, NovaThreads are naturally absorbed and the skin becomes thicker, stronger, and more voluminous thanks to added collagen and elastin.
Kybella for Eliminating Submental Fat
On the other hand, if excess fat is the reason for a patient’s double chin, Kybella is the best treatment option.
Kybella is comprised of a synthetic deoxycholic acid, which is a substance that’s naturally produced by the body to breakdown fat.
It’s administered as an injectable solution that targets fat cells, while leaving surrounding tissue unharmed.
For optimal results, Kybella is recommended as a series of 4-6 injections. Most patients note reduction of their double chin and overall refinement of their neck after 1-3 treatments.
Can Kybella and NovaThreads Be Combined as a Double Chin Solution?
Patients seeking double chin solutions often have unwanted submental fat and mild to moderate skin laxity. In these cases, a combination of Kybella and NovaThreads can effectively address a double chin by slimming, lifting, and tightening the neck.
Best of all, both Kybella and NovaThreads can be performed without surgery, incisions, or a lengthy recovery.
