The delicate skin of the neck and jawline usually shows the first signs of aging. Fat pockets under the chin or loose skin create some of the first and most obvious textural signs of aging and sun damage. Facial and neck rejuvenation procedures can work hand in hand, with the results complementing each other to create an overall smoother and more youthful appearance. Today, there are several non-invasive alternatives to plastic surgery.
Neck Rejuvenation Procedures
Neck Rejuvenation may include a choice of one or more treatment approaches:
Botox can be very effective for improving the vertical platysmal bands and redefining the jawline.
Belotero is often injected to decrease the appearance of horizontal creases in the neck.
Kybella delivers improved profiles for those who wish to destroy the under-chin fat cells that may increase with age or weight gain.
VBeam nonablative laser procedures provide skin rejuvenation, collagen stimulation and also address redness or pigment on the neck.
Exillis is the first and only device to simultaneously combine radio frequency and ultrasound to tighten skin, reduce fat and stimulate collagen.
Microneedling is a non-invasive skin resurfacing procedure for smoothing, refining and rejuvenating the complexion. Dr. Gallacher uses the Rejuvapen device with tiny, sterile needles to stimulate new collagen production.
We offer medical grade skin care products for excellent home care use, to protect and enhance the results of our laser and cosmetic treatments. It is important before, during, and after Neck Rejuvenation that you apply broad spectrum sunblock with an SPF of 30 or above to the area every day of the year.
What To Expect
Minimally invasive and effective for all skin types, these procedures are a quick and relatively painless approach to obtaining a rejuvenated neck. The methods discussed here yield very quick, noticeable results, without down time for the patient. They are also considered much safer than plastic surgery, with the most common side effect being mild swelling that usually resolves within days. The procedures are completed in Dr. Gallacher’s office, taking between 15 minutes to two hours, depending on which single or combination of treatments you desire.
