Ultherapy Submental Area / Under-Chin Lift
While Kybella may be the first FDA-approved treatment for destroying submental fat, Ultherapy is the only FDA-approved, non-invasive treatment for lifting and tightening the skin under your chin. Since sagging or loose skin on the underside of the chin only works to enhance the double chin effect, Ultherapy “picks up” where Kybella leaves off. Like Kybella, Ultherapy uses a non-invasive technique that works with the body’s natural processes, so there’s no downtime involved. Ultherapy utilizes ultrasound energy to stimulate the collagen production processes beneath the skin’s surface. Collagen is what gives the skin its supple fullness, but as we age, production of this vital protein slows and existing collagen weakens, causing sagging and loose skin. Ultherapy boosts production of healthy new collagen, resulting in smoother, tighter skin.
