Non-Surgical Neck Lift
The neck area can give away your age even when your face looks youthful. Lost elasticity of the skin under the chin and on the neck is common, resulting in lines, wrinkles and lost definition of the jawline. If you are beginning to notice aging under your chin or on your neck, there are face and neck options to improve its appearance without cosmetic surgery. At Vantage Plastic Surgery in NYC, we offer non-surgical neck lift procedures to firm the skin and improve the definition of the chin, neck and jawline.
One of the key factors of an aging neck is looser skin. As you get older, collagen and elastin levels drop, and the skin loses its elasticity. In the neck area, it is common for the skin under the chin to droop – this can be pronounced if there is excess fat or a double chin. The neck skin can also become looser, revealing horizontal lines and vertical bands of sagging skin. In the early stages, rejuvenating the neck and skin can be completed with minimally-invasive cosmetic treatments that require little or no downtime.
Neck Skin Tightening and Double Chin Treatments
A non-surgical neck lift can be performed using skin tightening treatments. Skin tightening uses heat energy to target the deeper levels of the skin to stimulate collagen production. The energy is delivered through a hand-held device, and it is not painful, and there is no need for downtime after the procedure. Patients may require a series of treatments to achieve the desired effect. The results may take several weeks or a few months to be apparent, as the collagen and elastin levels increase and tighten the skin.
For individuals with excess fat under the skin, Kybella® injections can be used with skin tightening to improve the appearance under the chin. Kybella destroys fat cells without surgery, and it is FDA-approved for double chin treatment. Kybella injections are also completed in a series of treatments to achieve the desired amount of fat loss under the chin for a more defined chin and jawline.
