People are often surprised to learn that dentists can do more for your appearance besides brightening teeth or treating gum-related health issues. We can also address facial esthetics, including wrinkles, lines, and even double chins. We recently started offering a unique treatment system known as Kybella®. How does Kybella® help your appearance?
What Esthetic Issues can Kybella® Address?
When you have fat accumulation under your chin, you can develop an unsightly double chin. For some patients, no amount of exercise and proper diet can address this area, which can be frustrating and embarrassing. We understand, which is why we have started offering Kybella®, which targets this area specifically.
How is Treatment Administered?
A series of infections will administer the medication directly into the area. There may be some initial redness, but this will be temporary. Patients may need one treatment a month for up to four to six months. However, once treatment is finished you will never need another. The medication will continue to target and destroy fat cell accumulation for the rest of your life.
Do You Have Other Facial Treatments?
We do! We offer Botox to remove lines and wrinkles around the eyes and forehand, as well as to help treat TMJ disorder by relaxing strained muscles in the face and jaw. We also have dermal fillers, such as Juvederm, which can fill lines around the nose and mouth and plump thin lips. The results of either system can last up to six months and we can re-administer during your routine checkups. We also have Voluma, which can fill sunken cheeks and last for up to two years! If you have any questions about our facial esthetics, then please contact our team today.
