3 Secrets to a Younger Looking Neck
It’s a fact of life, as we age our skin loses elasticity. The result: lines, wrinkles and sagging skin on the face and neck. While most of us treat the skin on our face, the neck is often overlooked. It’s never too late to learn the secrets to a younger looking neck. Did we mention these secrets require no surgery or downtime?
Condition #1 Sagging in the face, neck and jowls
Recommended Treatment: Ultherapy
How it works: Ultherapy uses micro-focused ultrasound to create small injuries beneath the surface of the skin. You may be wondering, how does this lift sagging skin? Our bodies respond to these small injuries with a healing process that encourages the body to produce collagen. With this increased collagen, skin is lifted and tightened. Think of the effect on the skin in the same way a workout affects a muscle.Working out strains our muscles, and the muscle responds to the strain by creating a firmer tighter body. The process of Ultherapy on sagging skin is the same. Ultherapy treatment bonus… all this injury response and collagen generating activity takes place below the surface of the skin so the only sign you have had a treatment is a more sculpted jaw line!
Condition #2 Double chin, less than desirable profile, stubborn neck fat that does not respond to diet or exercise
Recommended Treatment: Kybella
How it works: Many of us store fat under the chin that is resistant to diet and exercise. This fat can be genetic, due to the natural aging process, or created by changes in body weight. This pocket of excess fat, often referred to as a double chin, can be permanently reduced with a series of Kybella injections. Kybella is a synthetic form of deoxychilic acid, a substance that is naturally made in the body when precisely injected it begins to destroy fat cells beneath the surface of the skin. The dead fat cells are then removed from the body naturally through the lymphatic system. Results can be seen in 4 to 6 weeks at which point a second treatment is recommended. For best results, an average of 2-3 treatments are recommended. With Kybella, you no longer have to “go under the knife” to achieve a more sculpted chin!

Condition #3 Lines on the neck
Recommended Treatment: Botox
How it works: As we age, lines can form both vertically and horizontally on the neck. The good news is that Botox, which has been used for years to treat lines on the forehead, crows feet and more, can also be used to treat lines on the neck.
