Question: I have fat under my chin and some sagging neck skin. I don’t want a facelift. Are there any effective non-surgical treatments for my aging neck?
Answer: There is now a wide range of non-surgical therapies for the aging neck. Each patient is different, and which treatment you need depends on the type of aging you experience.
If you have fatty tissue in your neck or a double chin, you may be a candidate for liposuction or Kybella. While both procedures permanently treat submental fat, liposuction is still surgery and has a recovery period as well as greater risks.
Like neck liposuction, Kybella is also permanent. Unlike liposuction, Kybella is completely non-surgical but still has the benefit of being a permanent fat removal treatment. While you may need more than one Kybella session, depending on the severity of your submental fat, it only takes about 10-15 minutes for a Kybella treatment.
If you don’t want a facelift but would like to tighten and lift loose neck or jowl skin, you may benefit from the Infini RF. Infini is a non-surgical skin tightening device. While there are many skin tightening treatments on the market, Infini RF is unique in its ability to address multiple different skin layers with a single device, to allow improvement of a broader range of aging skin concerns.
Not only can Infini RF effectively tighten loose skin of the face as well as the neck, it also improves fine lines, large pores, acne scars and other scars as well as aged skin texture. Infini can also be used to help maintain the results of a facelift as well as in combination with facelift surgery to improve skin elasticity.
Infini is also beneficial when combined with injectable fillers or Botox for enhanced results. In patients who have both a fatty double chin as well as sagging neck skin, the Kybella-Infini combo can be a powerfully effective non-surgical treatment. As Kybella dissolves the fat under the chin, Infini RF can simultaneously tighten the loose skin. Infini does this by not only stimulating collagen but also impacting the production of elastin.
The best way to determine whether you are a suitable candidate for Kybella, Infini RF or a combination of both procedures is through a detailed consultation with a Board Certified Facial Plastic Surgeon. If your face is important to you, don’t price- shop or cut corners. Seek a specialist who understands the complex facial anatomy of aging and is an expert in both surgical and non- surgical facial rejuvenation treatments.
