A Youthful-Looking Neck Leads to an Overall Youthful Appearance
Gravity, sun damage, and environmental factors can wreak havoc on your neck. The skin on the neck is relatively thin in comparison to skin elsewhere on your body, and unfortunately, while you take care of the skin on your face, the skin below the chin is not quite so nurtured. This combination causes premature aging of the neck, resulting in sagging skin, vertical banding, excess fat deposits, and jowls. Aging of the neck causes you to look older and heavier than you are. Neck procedures restore youthfulness to an aging neck and rejuvenate your appearance. At Spring Ridge Plastic Surgery, Dr. Schlechter offers both non-surgical and surgical options for enhancing the neck, including the revolutionary Renuvion™ skin tightening treatment.
Renuvion™ offers non-surgical and minimally-invasive skin tightening for your aging neck. This treatment uses a combination of helium plasma (made from helium gas) and radiofrequency energy to gently heat the upper layer of skin. This heating causes the skin to tighten and collagen production to increase, reducing fine lines, wrinkles, and vertical banding and tightening the skin around the jowls and under the chin. Because the precise delivery of the plasma and RF energy ensures that no surrounding tissue is damaged, Renuvion™ is one of the safest treatments for skin tightening. The results this procedure achieves can rival even that of a traditional neck lift, which is why Renuvion™ is gaining the nickname of the non-surgical neck lift.
Renuvion™ is offered as a stand-alone procedure for patients who are experiencing mild to moderate skin laxity on the neck, chin, and jowls or in combination with liposuction for patients who has have excess fat deposits on the neck or under the chin that is contributing to an aged appearance. Regardless of your procedure, Renuvion™ will leave you with firmer, tighter skin and more youthful contours.
Additional Neck Rejuvenation Procedures
The PrecisionTx™ is known as the laser neck lift. This minimally invasive procedure uses laser liposuction to destroy excess fat and tighten loose skin. Results from this procedure begin to show immediately and improve over the following months as collagen production increases.
The results of a traditional neck lift speak for themselves. While it is more invasive than Renuvion™ and PrecisionTx™, a neck lift rejuvenates an aging neck by enhancing chin and jawline definition, slimming the neck, and smoothing the skin. This surgical procedure removes excess fat and skin through incisions made under the chin or behind the ears.
