Is There a Difference Between Surgical vs Nonsurgical Chin Enhancement?

Featured Image

When it comes to aging, one of the most affected areas is the lower half of the face. Sagging skin or extra fat under the chin can add years to your appearance and cause the facial profile to lose its balance and symmetry. Although many people turn to facelift surgery to correct these issues, there are nonsurgical ways to achieve the appearance you want. Body+Beauty Lab offers a range of options for jawline contouring without the long recovery time.

At Body+Beauty Lab, a member of our team can assess your facial profile and determine which procedures will work well for you. We can review methods such as jawline fillers and injections for fat reduction. If you would like to learn more about nonsurgical jaw enhancement, schedule a consultation at our medical spa in Philadelphia, PA. We also offer virtual consultations with experts, so you contact us from the comfort of your home.

Chin contouring with fillers and wrinkle relaxers

The most popular treatment for chin contouring includes a combination of wrinkle relaxers and dermal fillers. BOTOX® temporarily freezes the underlying tissue to reduce static lines and wrinkles while softening the skin. Fillers like JUVÉDERM® and Restylane® are formulated with synthetic hyaluronic acid (HA) to increase your collagen levels for a healthy, supple appearance. Natural, yet dramatic, results can be achieved when restructuring the skin and jowls of the lower face. Body+Beauty Lab performs chin contouring with fillers on an outpatient basis in the comfort of our office.

Cosmetic injectables for fat reduction

KYBELLA® is perfect for patients who want to sculpt the neck and jawline area. This product delivers deoxycholic acid via minimally-invasive injections to eliminate fat under the chin. Once the fat cells have been destroyed, the body naturally expels them over the course of 4 – 6 weeks. Unlike BOTOX, which is temporary, patients will not need to continue to receive injections to maintain their appearance. Fat will no longer accumulate underneath the chin. Before the process, patients are encouraged to talk about their medical history to see if they might be at risk for certain side effects.

KYBELLA can be performed after your consultation in one of our comfortable treatment rooms. To begin, your injector will clean your skin and clear away excess oils. We may also apply a numbing cream to help you feel at ease during nonsurgical chin enhancement. It takes about 15 minutes to administer the injections into the upper neck area. While some people require a single session to get to their desired appearance, others may need additional treatments spaced several weeks apart. Since there is no downtime associated with KYBELLA, you should be able to return to your daily activities right away.

Nonsurgical chin enhancement with Candela™ elos Plus®

The elos Plus device can reverse signs of aging in the face through optical and radiofrequency energy-based treatment. Body+Beauty Lab uses targeted heat to comfortably and safely get rid of fat and firm skin at the same time. This procedure heats the dermal tissue and stimulates collagen production to reduce fine lines and wrinkles, also improving overall skin quality. Although results can be seen right away, the most optimal outcome occurs about six months after the initial procedure. Learn more about nonsurgical jaw enhancement through elos Plus at our office in Philadelphia, PA.

Noninvasive thread lifting

Body+Beauty Lab offers patients the nonsurgical ThreadLift, a facelift performed with novathreads made with polydioxanone (PDO). This treatment can sculpt your face and jawline without general anesthesia or surgical incisions. In addition to addressing the appearance of the neck and chin, a ThreadLift can also target sagging skin around the mid-face and mouth to produce a youthful outcome. The biocompatible threads absorb into the body within 4 – 6 months of treatment. When you receive a ThreadLift at our medical spa, we work hard to make sure the results are as natural as possible and leave no scarring.
