How Can I Improve the Appearance of My Neck Without Surgery?
August 16, 2016
As we age, the effects of gravity, exposure to the sun and the stresses of daily life can be seen in our neck. While we are well aware of what effect this has to the body, it is certainly not something we look forward to. Muscles that sag in the neck and chin area can pull your face down, counteracting any anti-aging beauty routine you follow, no matter how diligent you are.
While facelift surgery is a viable option for helping to turn back the hands of time, it’s not necessarily the only option. As the aesthetics industry continues to evolve, more and more non-surgical skin rejuvenation options are being made available – and yes, that includes options for non-surgical neck enhancement.
A common question many prospective patients ask is: How can I improve the appearance of my neck without having surgery?
So, what are your options for non-surgical neck enhancement? Read on to find out.
Injections for Double Chin
Small stubborn pockets of fat can form under the chin, resulting in a loss of definition in a person’s chin profile that is resistant to diet and exercise. With our new clinically proven non-surgical treatment, patients can now receive injections to help restore the contour of their jawline. Using deoxycholic acid—a naturally occurring substance found in the body—these injections destroy the membranes of fat cells, causing them to die. The body then processes and naturally eliminates these dead fat cells, helping to create a beautifully contoured profile.
These in-office injection treatment sessions take approximately 15 to 20 minutes to complete. During your session, both you and your injector will determine the ideal treatment plan tailored for you. Based on your personal treatment goals, your injector will help to determine how many sessions are needed to achieve optimal results.
CoolSculpting for Double Chin
Many of our patients have tried everything, and even though they maintain a balanced diet, they still find themselves unhappy with submental fat under the chin area. Thankfully, these stubborn pockets of fat can be frozen away with CoolSculpting, resulting in a smoother, more refined chin profile.
CoolSculpting for double chin will target and freeze away the fat cells underneath your chin, allowing your body to naturally eliminate them in the weeks and months that follow. Controlled cooling, known as Cryolipolysis, enables our CoolSculpting specialists to effectively single out unwanted fat cells. These cells are safely crystallized, or frozen, which causes them to die. Over time, your body naturally processes and removes the dead cells, giving you a more contoured jawline.
Thermi® Skin Tightening
Another viable non-surgical option for tightening the skin in the chin and neck area is Thermi® Skin Tightening. Thermi™ is a leading developer of medical aesthetic devices that harness the power of controlled thermal energy to tighten skin and eliminate small pockets of bulgy fat. This technology will safely and effectively combat visible signs of aging in the neck, improving skin laxity – and therefore restoring its firmness – without the downtime associated with surgery.
While the above skin rejuvenation treatments continue to be effective in restoring your skin’s youthfulness, you must be diligent in maintaining each treatment regularly. You may also have to repeat the treatment in the future to conserve the integrity of your skin.
