The Secret to a Tighter Jawline

Tina West January 25, 2018 0 comments 11

It’s no coincidence that Hollywood actors tend to have the chiseled jaws. There seems to be something fundamentally attractive about the strong jaw you might see on a wild west gunslinger.

If you’ve ever wanted a tighter jaw line, but didn’t want to go under the scalpel, then until fairly recently you’ve been out of luck.

But with Ultherapy, that’s no longer the case.

Ultherapy: How Does It Work?

Ultherapy uses ultrasounds to lift and tighten your brows, tighten the chin and neck, improve wrinkles and more.

Sound like a miracle?

It certainly works like a miracle, but this technological revolution uses many of the same principles as skin rejuvenation to revitalize whatever area it’s applied to. It can be used on the face, the neck, the chest, the sternum or the clavicle.

Essentially, by using ultrasounds to stimulate collagen production deep into the skin, skin texture and skin laxity is improved.

So What About the Jaw?

In the case of the jaw, tightening the skin promotes a strong contouring effect that can’t be underestimated.

While treatments like Kybella (made to get rid of double chin) may treat the area by getting rid of fat, Ultherapy primarily affects the tightness of the skin. Thus, it produces a similar (if milder) effect to a necklift.

In a neck lift, loose and excess skin is removed. Ultherapy stimulates collagen production to tighten that skin–emphasizing the intrinsic bone structure, and mitigating the “roundedness” of the face and undoing sagging or jowls that may have occurred due to aging or due to weight gain.

Any patient going in for Ultherapy should be able to address their needs within the bounds of two or three sessions. The desired results may require maintenance sessions.
