No one likes to look older than they are. Unfortunately, the neck can make it look like a person ages faster than they really do. Like our faces, the neck is vulnerable to environmental factors, sun damage, and pollution. These and other factors can result in skin elasticity and loss of firmness, resulting in folds, wrinkles, and lines. For individuals who are self-conscious about their necks and want to restore a more youthful appearance, neck tightening treatment may help.
What Is Neck Tightening?
Neck tightening is a procedure that involves removing any excess skin folds or fatty tissue located around the neck area. The process involves restructuring the appearance, creating a smooth and firm neck.
What Are the Benefits of Neck Tightening?
There are several benefits that you can receive from a neck tightening procedure. Some of the benefits include:
- The removal of skin on the neck that sags
- Smoothing and firming of the creases and sagging skin on the neck
- Removing wrinkles and droopy neck skin
- Helping to improve the appearance of fatty upper necks
- Reducing the appearance of double chins
Neck tightening is a procedure that can be performed alone or in combination with another procedure, such as eyelid surgery, a brow lift, or a facelift. Individuals who receive neck tightening benefit greatly from having a refreshed and more youthful look restored.
What Does Neck Tightening Involve?
Neck tightening involves the use of an advanced PrecisionTX™ laser system. This laser precisely targets areas of the neck that need treatment. The procedure lasts around one hour and does not have to be repeated. During the procedure, a laser beam is used to heat unwanted fatty skin or sagging areas. The treatment works by causing an increase in the skin’s production of collagen, which leads to firming and tightening of the skin in the neck.
