It Tightens Muscle, Contours Fat, and Removes Extra Skin
Changes in the skin, fat, and muscle layers of the neck are responsible for the sagging appearance that we associate with aging. A neck lift is a surgical procedure designed to address these changes by tightening the muscle, contouring the fat, and removing extra skin.
Non-surgical tightening procedures such as FaceTite and Morpheus8 utilize radiofrequency energy to improve neck skin laxity in conjunction with liposuction to remove extra fat under the chin and along the jawline. The new procedure uses a suture support system without incisions to tighten the platysma muscle of the neck and thereby restore a more youthful neck angle and a well-defined jawline.
Platysmaplasty Removes Loose Skin
A neck lift (platysmaplasty) procedure will normally involve removing loose skin in the neck and jowl area. [This] will tighten the neck and jowls and help to define the jaw area. When significant loose skin causes jowls, a neck lift may be the only way to remove them.
Neck Skin Tightening Therapy, an Alternative to Surgery
Ultherapy is a non-surgical treatment option for those looking to improve the appearance of a sagging neck and jowls. It uses ultrasound technology to stimulate the production of collagen, which can help to lift and tighten the skin in the neck and jawline area.
One of the benefits of Ultherapy is that it is a non-invasive treatment option, so there is no downtime or recovery period required. Results can be seen over the course of several weeks or months as the collagen production process is stimulated and the skin becomes firmer and more toned.
It is important to keep in mind that Ultherapy may not be suitable for everyone, and it may not provide the same level of improvement as a surgical neck lift. It is always best to consult with a qualified healthcare provider to determine the best treatment options for your individual needs and goals.
