A Neck Lift Without Surgery?
If you are unhappy with the state of your aging neck, but hesitant to undergo a surgical neck lift, this information is for you! There are cutting-edge, non-surgical procedures available at the CENTER for Advanced Facial Plastic Surgery for lifting and tightening the neck with no downtime. Ulthera laser skin tightening and Botox are two effective ways of treating the signs of an aging neck—sagging skin, wrinkles—without a single incision!
Ulthera Neck Lift
Babak Azizzadeh, MD, FACS and skin care expert Nurse Jodi Slavica use the Ulthera skin-tightening laser at the CENTER to restore a youthful appearance to the skin of the neck and face. Ulthera is one of the latest and greatest non-surgical tissue lifting devices. Ulthera uses concentrated ultrasound waves to reach the deep layers of tissue in the neck. The sound waves gently heat the deep tissue, tightening the skin, and stimulating the production of new collagen.
The Ulthera non-surgical skin tightening procedure only takes 30-60 minutes in an office appointment. With no downtime, most patients return to their regular activity within the same day. The results of Ulthera are gradual, with the skin progressively becoming firmer over the course of 3-6 months following treatment meaning no one will notice you have had work done, just that you’re looking younger! Ulthera is also a great procedure to perform in conjunction with other lasers, facial fillers, and/or Botox for a complete non-surgical neck lift with optimal results.
Botox for the Neck
Botox, a neuromodulator that relaxes the muscles underneath wrinkles, has proven to be effective in treating some neck wrinkles that commonly form as part of the aging process. Vertical bands, or platysma muscle bands, are the two strips of muscle at the front of the neck that become more prominent with age. As our skin naturally loses volume as we age and the muscles become more prominent because of years of dynamic muscle movement, the vertical bands can contribute to a more aged appearance.
Botox can be injected carefully by an expert injector like Dr. Azizzadeh or Nurse Jodi into the platysma muscles in the neck. The Botox will stop the transmission of neural signals to the muscles, causing them to relax and the skin to smooth out. Results of Botox injections into the neck typically last up to 6 months and the procedure can be repeated when results wear off. When performed in conjunction with Ulthera laser therapy, patients often experience ideal non-surgical neck lift results.
