This Magical Treatment Combination Sculpts Jawlines

Portrait of a beautiful girl with healthy skin

Your neck and chin get a whole lot less attention than the rest of your face. But they’re an incredibly prominent part of your appearance – and can be key to shaving years off your visual age. If you’ve ever covered up your neck or avoided showing your profile in photos, you’re no stranger to anxieties about these frequent problem areas. And you’re not alone.

An American Society for Dermatologic Surgery survey asked more than 8,300 participants about their feelings toward their appearances and what they’d like to change if given the chance. A staggering 68% reported being bothered by excess fat under the chin and on the neck. But while this area is a common source of frustration, it’s much trickier to treat at home. After all, how do you target sagging skin or stubborn fat on your neck or chin? While some stretches might help achieve subtle changes, these aren’t going to make a significant difference. But there’s a combination of treatments that absolutely will.

Ultherapy and Kybella are powerful apart – but even better together. Ultherapy non-surgically lifts skin on the face and neck, revealing your features and fighting skin laxity. Kybella injections destroy fat under the chin to slim down submental fullness. Combining the two treatments makes it possible to both tighten skin and reduce stubborn fat – leading to a gorgeous jawline and more defined features.

Why Kybella + Ultherapy = Happy Patients

Combination therapy helps ensure that your treatment results are as fulfilling as possible. After receiving Kybella to remove fat cells beneath the chin, the skin in the area may sag. This is due to the sudden loss of fat and the skin’s inability to stay as elastic as we age. With loose skin under the neck, you won’t be able to see the Kybella results as clearly as you should. This makes it tougher to feel confident that the treatment was worth it – which is the last thing you (or we) want.

Fortunately, Ultherapy can step in and make a big difference. Ultherapy for the neck will help lift and tighten the loose skin left behind after Kybella. This allows for ideal results without the need for surgery.

Am I a Candidate for Kybella + Ultherapy?

Schedule a consultation today to learn more about your treatment options. We’ll take a look at your chin and neck and help you decide on the best single treatment, or combination of treatments. With a little thinking ahead and treatment planning, we can plot a course of action for the months to come. It’s also important to distinguish between fat under your chin vs. just loose skin that may be causing the illusion of submental fullness. These will require different treatment approaches.

Of course, every body responds differently to cosmetic treatments. Ultherapy is the less predictable of the two, as it stimulates the body’s natural collagen production. If your body is more or less able to produce collagen than the standard patient, your results may vary.

After your Kybella results have taken hold, you’ll have a better idea of whether it would be beneficial to follow up with Ultherapy. If you notice the skin on your neck sagging or looking loose, we’re always here to help.
