How do I know which chin fat reduction technique procedure is right for me?

Getting rid of a double chin through diet and exercise is extremely difficult. Many patients find the chin to be a “trouble area” that responds poorly to weight loss. A double chin can make people appear older than they actually are and approximately 65% of Americans report being bothered by the fullness under their chin. Kybella, Ultherapy, and Chin Lipo are three ways to reduce fat in the chin.

Kybella is an injection that contains deoxycholic acid, a naturally occurring substance that removes fat cells without harming surrounding healthy tissue and leaving behind a more contoured and sleek jawline. Ultherapy is an FDA-approved ultrasound treatment that lifts and tightens skin along the chin and jawline but it is not designed to remove fat.Chin Liposuction is a surgical procedure that uses liposuction in the chin and neck to remove stubborn fat. Which procedure is right for you depends on a few factors:

Downtime
Kybella is a series of injections that requires no downtime. However, patients may need a series of up to six injections, which cause redness, swelling, and bruising each time. Similarly, Ultherapy has minimal side effects but may require several treatments. Chin liposuction requires a few weeks of recovery but is a one-time treatment.

Type of Chin Fat
The best treatment for you depends on the type of skin or fat under your chin. If you have a small to medium double chin due to fat, Kybella destroys fat and is a great non-surgical alternative to liposuction but does not tighten the skin. If you are experiencing loose skin under the chin, Ultherapy works better for those with loose skin to tighten the skin and improve the chin line but is not recommended for those with fat under the chin. Chin liposuction improves a more severe double chin that is the result of an isolated pocket of fat with mild to minimal skin excess.

The best treatment for you depends on the amount of fat and loose skin on the neck, the number of recommended treatments, your expected results, cost, downtime, and side effects.

Is Ultherapy safe?

If you are looking for an effective way to boost aging skin Ultherapy is an excellent option. Ultherapy is an ultrasound based treatment that can lift the brows and under-chin area, and also improve lines and wrinkles on the neck and décolletage.  But is Ultherapy safe.

Ultherapy
Ultherapy is a non-surgical skin rejuvenation treatment that is designed to lift and tighten the skin. Ultherapy works by reaching the deep tissue layers where the skin makes new collagen. The formation of new collagen leads to an increase in the firmness of the skin over the following weeks.

Ultherapy is indicated for use as a non-invasive treatment, and is FDA approved for use on the face, neck, and chest.

Since Ultherapy is a non-surgical treatment there is no downtime, so patients are able to resume their daily activities immediately after treatment.

Is Ultherapy Safe
Yes, Ultherapy is a very safe and effective treatment option. Before being cleared by the FDA, Kybella underwent clinical studies to determine its safety, and the results were favorable. Ultherapy utilizesestablished ultrasound energy, which has been used in medicine for many years, and has a good safety record in the medical field.

The potential side-effects after Ultherapy are few. Patients may experience some redness for a few hours, as well as temporary tingling, tenderness, and swelling.Ultherapy does not cause pigmentation problems, and is therefore safe for all skin types.

While all procedures come with some risk, if you choose a physician with a lot of experience and training, there is less chance of any complications with Ultherapy.

Where can you use Ultherapy on the body for treatments?

If you want to look younger and rejuvenate your skin, there are many non-surgical options to choose from, including Ultherapy. Ultherapy uses proven ultrasound technology to lift and tighten the skin. It is an effective way to cancel out the effects of age on the skin, especially on the face and décolletage, but where can you use Ultherapy on the body for treatment.

What is Ultherapy?
Ultherapy is a non-surgical skin tightening treatment that also tones and lifts the skin. The procedure is effective because it targets the foundation layer beneath the skin, and this the area that is normally addressed during a surgical facelift. Ultherapy also stimulates collagen by triggering the skin’s natural repair process, and this helps to tighten the skin over time.

Treatment takes 30-45 minutes, and there is virtually no downtime. It is a unique procedure that uses ultrasound imaging that allows the physician to see the layers of tissue being targeted, so that they can deliver the energy where it is needed most.

Where can you use Ultherapy on the body for treatments?
Ultherapy is often referred to as the non-surgical facelift, because it is a very effective way to tone and tighten facial skin. It is FDA approved for use on the brow, chin, neck, and chest. However, it has been safely used on various parts of the body, such as the arms, thighs, and buttocks.

If you are considering Ultherapy, be sure to consult with a trained provider with a lot of experience using the technology, so that you can achieve the best possible results.

Can Ultherapy be used anywhere else?

Ultherapy is a revolutionary facial rejuvenation technology that both lifts and tightens the skin. It is a unique approach that uses safe and gentle ultrasound waves to revitalize the face without surgery or downtime, but can Ultherapy be used anywhere else.

Ultherapy
Ultherapy is a completely non-invasive facial treatment that tightens loose, sagging skin through the power of ultrasound. The procedure requires no anesthetic, and there is minimal pain, and no recovery time.

The device emits powerful micro-focused ultrasound waves that lift the skin and the deep structural support layers below it, which are normally addressed by a surgical facelift. Treating the muscle layer of the skin contributes to the growth of fresh, new collagen over time. This tones the skin from within, making it firmer and more elastic.

Treating the entire face can take about 60 minutes, and most patients only need one treatment to see the desired results.

Can Ultherapy be used anywhere else?
Ultherapy is currently cleared by the FDA for the treatment of lax skin on the face and neck. It is particularly effective on the brows, because it lifts the brows and opens up the eyes.

Ultherapy has also been used successfully to treat loose skin on other parts of the body, such as the stomach and arms. However, this is regarded as ‘off-label’ use of the treatment, because it has not received FDA clearance for use in these areas.

If you are considering Ultherapy, be sure to consult with a board certified plastic surgeon, or dermatologist.
