One of the top concerns of the individuals who walk through our doors is the appearance of their neckline. Fortunately, there are a number of treatment options one can turn to without going under the knife!
Consider Botox to relax the muscles of the neck.
For many people, relaxing the Masseter Muscle and Platysmal Bands can make a huge difference in the appearance of their neckline. The Masseter Muscle is the muscle that helps you chew. For many, it can be very obvious and protruding. By injecting a few units of Botox into the muscle, it can help to relax it, giving the neckline a smoother appearance. At the same time, the Botox will not inhibit an individual’s ability to chew.
The Platysmal Bands are the bands in the neck that protrude when you clench your teeth. Some individuals have very defined Platysmal Bands, while others don’t. For those that do, many turn to Botox to relax these bands for a sharper neckline.
Kybella is a great solution to melt away fat under the chin.
Kybella is a prescription approved by the FDA to treat moderate to severe submental fat, or “double chin,” that works like deoxycholic acid. Deoxycholic acid naturally occurs in the body to absorb fat. A series of Kybella injections are used to destroy unwanted fat cells under the chin, leaving a smoother appearance.
Ultherapy works to lift and tighten the chin area.
Ultherapy is an ultrasound therapy used to stimulate the deep dermal layer of the skin through small thermal bursts. These bursts stimulate the skin to support the production of collagen, which with time, can tighten and lift the skin. Ultherapy also allows for image capture, so a patient can truly see the difference in the deep layer of their skin over time.
With all of these treatments options, it gives us the ability to develop a plan specific to each individual to target the true concerns of the neckline. One patient might only need Botox, where another might need a combination of any of the above. Results vary based on the patient’s needs and the type and amount of treatment used.
