2 FDA-Approved, Non-Surgical Solutions for the Double Chin! Which One Is For You?
With so many cosmetic non and minimally invasive therapies available, it’s difficult to choose which one is right. One area affecting both men and women is that tricky area on the neck referred to as the ‘double-chin’. It comes with age, weight change and genetics.
Two successful, affordable therapies exist, today, that target that extra, droopy skin under the chin. Regardless of how it got there, it can make you look older or heavier and leave you feeling less confident. The solutions…Kybella® or Ultherapy®!
The cost… $450
Kybella injections may reduce fat cells under the chin. It’s FDA-approved and the procedure takes about 15 to 20 minutes.
The longer version
The active ingredient in Kybella is synthetic deoxycholic acid. This naturally occurring molecule in the body aids in the breakdown and absorption of dietary fat which is then flushed out of the system.
Everyone’s chin profile is different however, many people experience visible results in 2 to 4 treatments, given 1 month apart.
The small print
Most common side effects of Kybella treatment include minor swelling, bruising or numbness under your chin.
The investment… starts at $450
Ultherapy lifts and tightens the skin, naturally with ultrasound. It’s FDA-cleared and the procedure takes about 60 minutes.
The full story
The Ultherapy procedure delivers focused ultrasound energy to the skin’s foundational layer addressed in cosmetic surgery but without cutting the skin.
Most patients only need one treatment.
The good news
Ultherapy stimulates your own collagen production. Users boast lasting effects 18-24 months later.
There is no downtime. Some patients see an initial effect right after treatment, but full results appear over 2−3 months as new collagen works to lift and tighten skin on the neck, chin and brow as well as smooth skin on the chest.
