When we think of a troublesome profile, the nose often comes to mind. What we are learning, though, is that many men and women are more self-conscious about the appearance of their neck. Humans naturally want to feel good about how they look; straight-on and in profile.
The characteristics of the jawline and upper neck are important to youthfulness, and they can be addressed with surgery such as chin liposuction, chin implants, and neck lift surgery. However, it is also possible for some people to reach a desirable state of appearance without having to undergo a surgical procedure. Here, we will discuss a few non-surgical treatments that can improve the neck/chin/jawline profile.
Kybella, the Double-Chin Buster
Submental fullness can create an illusion of extra weight just by filling out such a visible area around the face. The recent approval of Kybella has made it easier for men and women to sculpt under their chin without surgery. Treatment involves 3 or more sessions in most cases (if you get an early start on this issue, 1 to 2 sessions may suffice). Over the course of a few months, with sessions scheduled 4 to 6 weeks apart, the fat that has accumulated beneath the chin is destroyed and metabolized by the body.
Botox, the Wrinkle-Reducer
We tend to put Botox into its own little, magical box of wrinkle reduction, but this could be a mistake if you’ve got a neck to treat. As a gentle muscle relaxer, Botox can ease the pull of the neck muscles that tug chin tissue downward. When the downward tension is reduced, the uplifting facial muscles have more say in the definition along the jaw line. The lift one can get from Botox lasts 3 to 4 months.
Ultherapy, the Skin-Tightener
Ultherapy is one of several high-tech energy treatments developed to tighten the skin. Here’s what makes this treatment stand out: it is the only energetic treatment that reaches the depths achieved with plastic surgery. The high-intensity focused ultrasound targets deep tissue for collagen production, which leads to noticeably tighter skin over time. Because Ultherapy is ultra-powerful, it takes only one treatment for most patients to achieve their desired outcome.
