Neck Treatments to Firm, Lift and Tighten
Numerous neck treatment options exist to firm up, lift the skin, and tighten the neck area to reduce wrinkling and sagging. You’ll work with the skilled team at Look Younger to determine the best treatment based on your personal goals.
Neck Treatment Types
From ultrasound treatments to laser resurfacing to injections to surgery, there are many options to choose from to reverse signs of aging around the neck. Less invasive treatments for the neck have quick recovery times but are usually temporary and require maintenance. More permanent solutions include surgery, which is a more involved procedure with additional costs. However, results are generally more dramatic and last longer.
If you’re looking at a neck lift in Dallas, you’ll want to know what to expect for the procedure and recovery as well as the results. A neck lift is often performed as part of a facelift to ensure a cohesive appearance. The surgeon will reposition muscles and tissue that have been weakened and tighten the skin. They may also remove excess fat and skin for smoother results.
Ultherapy for Neck
Ultherapy is a high-intensity ultrasound that is focused on a specific area. The ultrasound works deeper below the surface of the skin to increase collagen production. It also lifts and tightens the skin on the neck. Ultherapy in Dallas can help you feel and look years younger.
Laser Skin Resurfacing
Laser skin resurfacing is a non-surgical procedure that gets rid of dark spots and helps reduce crepey skin and fine lines. A laser stimulates the production of collagen and elastin to enhance younger-looking, tighter skin. This procedure can be performed on a regular basis to help prevent the loss of elasticity in the neck area.
Neuromodulator injections include BOTOX® and other products. These injections are designed to soften the tight muscle bands around the neck for a smoother appearance. The treatment will need to be repeated about twice a year to maintain the results.
Radiofrequency Neck Tightening
Radiofrequency neck tightening helps to lift and smooth skin in the neck area by stimulating collagen production. This procedure requires only local anesthesia and can be done on an outpatient basis. Because the treatment requires an incision and a special tool is inserted under the skin, stimulation takes place at a deeper level than with topical products. Results will become apparent gradually with this process.
Neck liposuction is a surgical procedure that removes excess fat and tissue for a more sculpted look. Many women are at their ideal weight but carry extra roundness in the chin and jawline. Liposuction in Texas can help to create more definitions in this area. You may need an additional procedure to tighten the skin in the neck after liposuction.
Using dermal fillers on the neck is a minimally invasive treatment that provides temporary results. Usually, a product like Juvederm® is injected into areas under the chin to make it more defined. Fillers may be used with liposuction to remove extra fat and create a more balanced appearance.
