Our faces aren’t the only parts of our body to show the signs of aging. As you get older, the skin around your neck will also start to sag as collagen and elasticity is decreased. Many people take good care of their faces, but neglect their necks. Recently, a number of non-surgical treatments have been developed which can help provide a natural neck lift without going under the knife.
Two non-surgical neck tightening treatments we offer are Ultherapy and ThermiTight. Both work very well to stimulate collagen production and tighten loose neck skin. However, these treatments are not appropriate for everyone. Everyone can get these treatments, but it doesn’t necessarily mean that everyone will see results. Choosing the right candidate for each treatment is crucial. This comes with the experience of a reputable physician such as Dr. Zadeh, who can determine which treatment will provide the optimal results for each individual. Let’s take a closer look at the two.
A great alternative to a surgical neck lift, the Ultherapy procedure uses ultrasound energy to gradually stimulate collagen production. This will strengthen and lift the skin from deep within over time. The treatment is completely non-invasive, and takes about 30-45 minutes for the neck depending on the extent of treatment. There’s no cutting involved. There is no downtime associated with the treatment and you can get back to your regular activities right away. Ultherapy is best for those individuals who have mild skin laxity. It works extremely well as a preventative measure and for maintenance to slow the signs of aging.
ThermiTight is a relatively newcomer to the skin tightening game. However, it is the most promising non-surgical neck lift treatment with amazing results. ThermiTight is a painless, micro-invasive procedure, that uses Radiofrequency heat energy underneath the skin directly to the collagen containing layer. This causes tightening of the skin. It also has the ability to sculpt and melt fat if needed. The treatment is highly customizable and can take as little as 30 minutes. There is minimal downtime. Thermitight is a great option for individuals who have moderate to severe loose neck skin and do not want to undergo surgery.
Both Ultherapy and ThermiTight are extremely safe when performed in the right hands and have been FDA approved. It’s important to remember that all skin tightening treatments take up to 6-9 months to see optimal results. Results will vary from person to person, but have the potential to last several years!
