Loose, sagging skin and a double chin are among the most common cosmetic concerns that people have as they age. You may think that plastic surgery is the only way to resolve these concerns. But, thanks to innovative, non-surgical solutions like Kybella and PDO threads, surgery is no longer needed to achieve a rejuvenated look.
What is Kybella?
Kybella is an FDA-approved, injectable treatment for submental fullness (or, as it’s more commonly called, a double chin). This injection features deoxycholic acid as the main ingredient, which permanently breaks down and removes excess fat in the chin and neck area. It also keeps cells from storing and accumulating fat in the future.
Patients notice a dramatic improvement in the chin and neck area after just a few Kybella treatments. Kybella makes the area appear smooth, contoured, and defined. For the maximum results, most patients undergo two to six treatments over the course of six months. Additionally, Kybella injections are pain-free and don’t require any downtime.
PDO threads are another non-surgical cosmetic treatment that can rejuvenate your look. This treatment involves injecting absorbable polydioxanone threads into the face or body to stimulate collagen production. PDO thread treatment results in tighter, lifted skin that lasts for one to two years.
Six months following insertion, PDO threads dissolve and are safely processed by the body. New collagen is left in its place. This makes them a safe, reversible alternative to thread facelifts of years past.
At Hermann Aesthetics & Wellness, we use Nova Threads, which come in three varieties: smooth, smooth twisted, and barbed. Each option suits different cosmetic preferences and goals.
