We have talked separately before about both Kybella® (injections of deoxycholic acid to submental fat [double chin]) and Ultherapy® (delivery of ultrasound guided heat to stimulate collagen and elastin regeneration).  A frequently asked question about Kybella® is, “what happens to the skin after the fat is dissolved?”  There is, in fact, substantial retraction of the skin post Kybella® treatment alone, however, as skin texture is an issue for everyone seeking rejuvenation, Kybella® to address fullness coupled with Ultherapy® to further improve laxity and texture are an excellent adjunct therapy.  In order to achieve this, a patient would receive the appropriate number of Kybella® treatments, spaced approximately 6 weeks apart, followed by an Ultherapy treatment, also approximately six weeks later.  Talk with your provider to determine if you are a good candidate for this excellent, very results-oriented combination therapy!
