Aging is a process everyone experiences, but if you are not happy with how your face is aging, keep your chin up. Don’t avoid the process of aging – embrace it and take charge by learning about the different options to contour your chin and jawline.

1. Say Goodbye to Early Jowl Formation

As you age, you may see some sagging at the jawline or under your chin. There are several procedures that may reverse the early formation of jowls and take you back a few years.


Thermi is an innovative technology that uses radiofrequency to get rid of loose skin under the chin without surgery in different areas of your body, including your face, neck, and even your knees. You may see results in as little as one visit, but your actual results may vary based on the condition of your skin. The radiofrequency energy in the Thermi system tightens your skin and smooths wrinkles by stimulating your fibroblast cells to produce of collagen, elastic fibers, and hyaluronic acid. If you are looking for a non-surgical method of correcting your problem areas, Thermi might be the right choice for you.


Kybella is an FDA-approved injectable treatment designed to destroy the fat cells under your chin that create the appearance of a double chin. Our board-certified dermatologists were involved in the FDA clinical trials resulting in Kybella’s approval and also know how to use Kybella to address early jowl formation. By injecting Kybella in targeted areas along the jawline, we can eliminate small, isolated areas of fat and create a more defined jawline. In some cases, we can combine this procedure with a skin tightening treatment to enhance your positive results.

If you are looking for a non-surgical solution for loose skin under your chin and neck area, consider Ultherapy, Sofwave and Thermage which are safe for all skin types and tones, works great after weight loss for loose skin under the chin, and can even be combined with other treatments.

These treatments use ultrasound waves or radiofrequency to deliver heat to targeted areas and stimulate your fibroblast cells to increase production of collagen, elastic fibers, and hyaluronic acid without downtime. You may see the appearance of skin tightening right away as well as a gradual improvement over the course of several months. This is the perfect solution for a busy person who wants to know how to tighten skin under the chin and neck for a fresh, revived, younger look.

2. No More Chin Fat

When you get in front of a camera, do you adjust your head to get rid of your double chin? You can refresh your look with one of these procedures. Skilled dermatologists can sculpt your jawline by reducing the fat under your chin.

Facial/Neck LipoSculpture

Liposuction is one of the most popular procedures for body sculpting, but the face is a delicate area that needs a special touch to get the right look. Facial liposculpture is an excellent method to get rid of loose skin under the chin. When performed by an experienced dermatologist, you can get a customized, contoured look and tighten skin under your chin without invasive surgery.


CoolMini is an innovative process to get rid of small areas of stubborn fat, so it’s perfect for under the chin. CoolMini uses cryolipolysis to focus on targeted areas and break down fat cells to smooth the skin and deliver a younger, more contoured jawline. No needles, no incisions, no downtime – and beautiful results.


ThermiTight is part of a system that combines with other body sculpting procedures to tighten loose skin under the chin. The minimal downtime with ThermiTight as a combination treatment is appealing for those with a busy lifestyle, and you will be pleased to see the results that tighten the skin under your chin. Our ThermiSculpt³ procedure combines liposculpture, ThermiTight, and chin augmentation using an injectable filler to create comprehensive improvement without significant downtime or visible post-treatment scarring. 

3. Go Wrinkle-Free

A wide range of dermal fillers can be used to smooth out different types of wrinkles. HA (hyaluronic acid) fillers like Restylane® , Juvederm® , RHA(R) and more address lines in the face due to collagen loss. These dermal  fillers work with the dynamic nature of your face to reduce the appearance of wrinkles while maintaining natural facial movement.

Neuromodulators, such as Botox®, Daxxify®, Dysport®, Jeaveau®, or Xeomin®, serve a different purpose as they relax wrinkle lines by addressing the facial muscles that cause them. If your chin has dimples that need to disappear, neuromodulators might be an excellent choice for you. Skilled physicians have the experience, precision, and skill to produce natural, beautiful results no matter which injectable treatment you choose.

4. Define the Chin

If you need to create a more defined look to your chin, turn up the volume with a dermal filler like Juvéderm Voluma® XC to help in adding more projection to an otherwise recessed or less-defined chin. This procedure offers quick results that can last up to two years without incisions or post-treatment scarring left behind by surgical chin augmentation.

5. Don’t Stop at the Chin

When it comes to rejuvenation, you don’t have to stop at the chin. If you want a consistent, smooth look for your neck as well, ask about an approach that combines the use of laser treatment, Ultherapy, Thermage, Sofwave, ThermiTight, Botox Cosmetic, and dermal fillers. Your new look will give you the confidence you need to smile all day.
