Neck lift surgery (platysmaplastia) is the most effective, but also the most invasive, treatment for a double chin. It may be the only option available for patients with severe double chin or substantial laxity. There are several options for treating a drooping double chin or reducing its sagging or drooping appearance. Surgical procedures, such as neck lifts, can tighten the skin and make it look less saggy.
Nonsurgical procedures, such as thermage, lasers, and peels, can change the composition of skin collagen. Fillers can be used to camouflage hollow areas around the double chin. However, many anti-aging treatments to restore collagen and elasticity will help prevent sagging below the jaw. Some of them include laser treatments, microneedling, phototherapy, Botox, and more.
Non-surgical ultrasound procedures are also very effective when it comes to tackling the drop of the double chin. These procedures revitalize the skin by stimulating the production of new supplies of collagen and elastin to restore structure and definition to the skin for a smooth and smooth appearance. Ultherapy is the leading procedure in this field, using proven and proven ultrasound technology to gradually strengthen the skin from the depths. Ultherapy helps the double chin specifically by initiating a skin repair process in the jowl area that strengthens existing collagen and, at the same time, increases the production of new collagen.
Some patients see an initial lift after just one session, but actual results tend to become more evident in a time frame of three to six months as new collagen increases. Unlike a surgical facelift, Ultherapy has no downtime, which means you can return to normal activities immediately after treatment.
