As we age, it is normal for our skin to become more pliable and lose elasticity. While some people consider cosmetic surgery for this issue,
others prefer a less drastic option.
A non surgical neck lift can tighten the skin around the jawline, reduce the appearance of scarring and soften lines that lead to wrinkles.
A non surgical neck lift is an excellent choice for many people. Some of the procedures that we use for neck skin lifting includes:
Only FDA approved procedure for face and neck lifting. Ultherapy delivers heat below the surface of the skin to stimulate the body’s natural renewal of existing collagen and creation of new collagen which is a natural protein that gives skin its youthfulness by keeping it firmed and toned. As we age, collagen loses its strength and its ability to stand up to the effects of gravity that pull the skin downward. Only 1 is necessary and can be repeated every 2-3 years.
It’s used to relax and treat the platisma bands, which give the neck the saggy appearance.
The machine that generates the radio frequency waves has a small tip that is passed over each area that is to be treated. Each area must be
treated with a pulse of the machine, which takes from two to seven seconds. You may experience no pain at all, a mild stinging sensation or
actual pain. The level of pain experienced depends on the individual and the amount of pain medication provided by the doctor. A minimum of
6 sessions one week apart are needed.
While the improvement from a non surgical neck lift will not be apparent immediately, you should see results within a month.* Improvements will continue for up to six months, and last from five to ten years.*
Platelet Rich Plasma Therapy is an in office anti-aging treatment designed to activate collagen production and reduce wrinkles. Platelets are
the body’s natural resources that speed tissue healing, decrease inflammation and pain, and increase connective tissue, bone density and the
production of new blood cells
The procedure for Platelet Rich Plasma Injections involves removing a sample of the patient’s blood and placing it in a centrifuge machine that separates blood from plasma. The plasma is then re-injected into specific areas of the face where wrinkle elimination is desired. PRP Injections are typically done every four weeks three to six times or until sufficient collagen production and wrinkle reduction is achieved.
Because the patient’s own plasma is used, there are no preservatives and absolutely no chance of rejection! The only significant risk of this type of treatment is mild to moderate bruising at the injection site. This side effect is highly dependent on whether or not the patient is already prone to bruising and does not occur in every individual.
A chemical peel, also called chemexfoliation or derma peeling, is one of the least invasive ways to improve the appearance of your skin. Although chemical peels are used mostly on the face, they can also be used to improve the skin on your neck and hands.
The so called non-ablative lasers have been a more recent introduction in types of aesthetic equipment for skin rejuvenation.
These lasers have lower energy levels than ablative lasers (which resurface or remove the outer layer of skin completely), and try to cause damage within the dermal layer of the skin without removal of the outer epidermal layers. That is to say that the laser treats the layers of skin under the surface without damaging the surface too much. This lessens the recovery period after the treatment and reduces the number of complications that can occur.
It is thought that the laser’s heat in the dermal layers causes collagen to be produced which helps reduce the appearance of lines and wrinkles.
Non-Surgical collagen formation and lifting with Absorbable Polydiaxanone (PDO) Threads is a common practice now days used for facial some body parts lifting.
PDO is a strong synthetic mono filament that is absorbed by the body in 6 months, but results might last up to 1 year. There are different threads used for different purposes.
PDO Threads create not only collagen, but also mild fibrosis that strengthen the skin, resulting in pulling up the skin. Results are usually seen immediately and also gradually, the suture restores lost collagen, maintaining volume over time.
