If you want to smooth and tone your neck area or have heavy jowls, saggy skin, or a double chin, it’s time to explore anti-aging neck treatments. These are common issues that affect men and women as they age, but luckily, they’re all treatable.
Bid farewell to flabby under-the-chin fat and skin with noninvasive CoolSculpting treatments. Some neck treatments melt away fat with heat, but CoolSculpting freezes fat cells under the skin. It’s ideal for spot treatments but not for large areas of skin that are loose and saggy. If you have a significant amount of excess neck skin, you should consider a different treatmentsuch as a neck lift.
CoolSculpting does not offer immediate results, and you may require multiple sessions to get the results you want. This treatment stimulates natural cell death and removal, which decreases the amount of fat in your neck area. Over time, your neck becomes smooth and sculpted.
Many adults end up with a double chin, even if they follow healthy diets or exercise regularly. You can typically thank genetics for this unwanted skin beneath your jawline. However, you aren’t stuck with a double chin. Kybella addresses this common concern.
Kybella melts away fat cells using deoxycholic acid, a synthetic version of a fat-absorbing substance your body naturally produces. This produces long-lasting, often permanent, results in just two to six sessions
Treatment takes just 15 to 20 minutes per session and is performed on a monthly basis until you achieve your desired results.
Exilis is a practical option for patients who need more help than treatments such as CoolSculpting and Kybella provide but aren’t ready to commit to a neck lift. This treatment firms and contours loose skin in the neck area, minimizing turkey necks and other cosmetic concerns.
This noninvasive treatment combines radiofrequency energy and ultrasound, so it cools the skin’s surface while heating hidden deep-tissue fat. This sends a message to your body to produce more skin-smoothing collagen, which causes the skin to contract.
Exilis delivers visible results on the surface, but it also works beneath your skin to tighten and tone muscles. Each session lasts between 30 and 45 minutes, and patients typically require two to six sessions.
Smartlipo isn’t just for the neck and chin. It also treats hard-to-remove fat throughout your body. Smartlipo melts away fat while tightening loose skin, which is why it’s a popular treatment for loose neck skin.
You receive local anesthesia prior to treatment, which means you’re awake during the procedure. This is different than traditional liposuction where you are put to sleep for the procedure. The initial recovery period takes a few days, and your doctor may request to that you refrain from working or exercising during this time.
You may notice gradual improvements for up to 3 months after your procedure. The results are permanent, so additional sessions are not mandatory.
Don’t hide under turtlenecks or high-collared hoodies when signs of aging appear on your neck. Let our office address your loose skin or double chin with effective treatments tailored to your neck’s needs.
Consider a neck lift if you have significant signs of aging but aren’t ready for a full facelift just yet. A neck lift, also known as neck tightening, addresses droopy jowls and saggy skin in just one session.
A neck lift isn’t the right choice for everyone, though. A neck lift works best on moderate amounts of excess skin, not excessive layers of fat or heavy folds of saggy skin.
Recovery takes longer than many of the other treatment options we offer, but the results also last longer. You can return to many of your regular activities after a day or two, but you have to wear a compression garment for a few weeks after the treatment for varying times throughout the day.
