Is your neck starting to look tired?
Early signs of neck ageing include Crepiness of the skin. This is caused by increase in skin elasticity.
“A lot of my patients often in there 30s and early 40s begin to ask what they can do to warn the signs of ageing for the neck such as Crepiness of the skin”
The Older Neck
In the older neck (50s-70s) the ageing deformity is more defined with excess skin, wrinkling, platysma bands and varying degrees of a fatty swaddle under the chin called the “turkey neck”. In this neck, surgery is the gold standard and other modalities while helping are a compromise.
Options for early signs of ageing in the neck?
The following is an outline of what is available at Artiste.
Good skin care begins with regular cleansing of the skin and application of moisturizer. The cleansers of Doctor Babor are filled with natural active peptides that help restore the nutrients of the skin. The dual facelift serum (Neck lift in a bottle) can help firm the skin.
Non Surgical Technology.
Omnilux Light Therapy is the worlds leading light therapy and just 20 minutes under the light will stimulate blood flow to the face and neck to give it a glow.
Vivace RF Microneedling is a new device and Artiste is one of the few clinics in Australia to have it. This device will stimulate new collagen formation and significantly boost the appearance of the neck skin.
Skin Tightening through ultrasound energy (Ultherapy) can tighten the skin of the neck and face by promoting new collagen formation.
Coolsculpting: This technology is a form of non surgical liposuction that freezes fat in the neck and then your body absorbs the fat. The fat dissolving injection is and will take over this modality.
Injections and More:
Anti Wrinkle Injections can reduce the contraction of platysma bands to indirectly tighten the neck and improve the jawline.
Belkyra or Fat Dissolving Injections is suitable for all fatty necks and will improve the contour of the neck and entire jaw line. The injections dissolve fat and your body then absorbs up the fat through macrophages. This process also tightens skin. This treatment needs to occur on average three times six weeks apart. The effect is permanent.
PRP-Vampire Neck Lift: Platelet rich plasma can rejuvenate the skins texture through its stimulation of growth factors. After obtaining a small amount of blood, the blood is spun to separate the red cells from plasma and the plasma is the injected into the skin. This process can be combines with Vivace needling to avoid injections.
Chemical Peels: Acid peels can lift the old skin and promote new skin growth with fewer wrinkles.
Minor Surgical Procedures:
Liposuction of the neck to contour neck through an incision placed under the chin can sculpt and sharpen the neck angles. This is day surgery.
Major Surgical Procedures:
Outline only, more to come in future blog on Neck lifts
Neck Lift: A neck will tighten the internal muscles, remove fat and skin.
Comprehensive Neck lift: A full neck lift will also remove any glands that contribute to the fatty neck and tighten the neck from anterior and posterior approaches.
Neck and Facelift: A Facelift and Neck lift will transform the face and neck region and take more than 10 years off your life.
