Loose, “turkey neck” can be another undesirable process of aging. Thankfully, surgery is no longer the only option to help reduce saggy neck skin. As the only FDA-approved injection to minimize the “double chin” or sub-mental neck fat, Kybella® (deoxycholic acid) is an effective non-invasive treatment that safely and effectively destroys fat cells.
One treatment consists of 1 to 2 vials injected in multiple skin sites underneath the chin. A maximum of six treatments is delivered, one month apart each, until the desired cosmetic result is achieved. Because the fat cells targeted by Kybella are no longer viable, no further injections are required past the point of a satisfactory result.
