And Now, Your Neck: Option 3 – Thermage CPT

Last week, you heard about Kybella, one of the latest nonsurgical options for an aging neck. This week, I’ll tell you about another successful option, Thermage CPT.

 

Many of you worry about wrinkling on your neck as the years tick by and don’t like the crepey appearance that occurs on this delicate skin. You may have friends who have had traditional plastic surgery to tighten sags and folds, but procedures as invasive as this are not always necessary. An aging neck presents numerous nonsurgical treatment options, all of which yield effective and safe results.

 

Definitive improvement is possible, with minimally invasive FDA-approved procedures that we perform routinely in our offices. One of the most popular is Thermage CPT, a thermal lift that yields dramatic results without recuperation and downtime. (You can return to your normal routine right away.) Using controlled radio frequency energy to tighten tissue and collagen, we can reduce skin laxity and wrinkles after just one treatment. Initial results are visible within a few weeks as tightening, smoothing and improved tone and texture are seen in the treated areas. The long-term results occur over time as the healthier collagen tightens and wrinkles lessen. Studies show that the results can last from several months to several years, depending upon the individual aging process. 

 

As with all of our treatments, a specific plan will be developed just for you, depending on your individual needs and concerns. Call our office today to schedule a complimentary consultation.

 

Next week, we’ll talk about another safe and effective procedure for your neck…Exilis Elite.

And Now, Your Neck: Option 2 – Kybella

Last week, you heard about the radiofrequency microneedling treatment, Infini. This week, we’ll talk about Kybella, one of the latest nonsurgical options for an aging neck. Clearly, one of the most pressing cosmetic concerns for women and men, a wrinkling neck presents numerous treatment options, all of which yield effective and safe results.

 

Despite what you may have read about drinking extra water, doing neck exercises and rubbing retinoids into your skin, superficial efforts such as these really can’t reverse the signs of aging. Definitive improvement is possible, though, with minimally invasive FDA-approved procedures that we perform routinely in our offices.

 

In fact, I’m proud to be one of the first physicians in the area to offer Kybella, a nonsurgical treatment that slims and contours the area below and around your chin and neck. It’s the first and only FDA-approved treatment to reduce submental fullness, more commonly known as “double chin.” Submental fullness affects both men and women, and can be influenced by several factors such as aging, genetics and weight gain. A double chin is often resistant to diet and exercise and can detract from a balanced facial appearance, resulting in an older and heavier look.

 

After a series of injections, the fat cells under your chin will be permanently destroyed. Once this happens, they can’t accumulate or store more fat, so your new thin contour is expected to remain over time. In the end, your double chin will be minimized, and lines and wrinkles will have been decreased.

And Now, Your Neck: Option 1 – Infini

It may not be the first place where you look for signs of aging, but once you notice it, it may become your biggest concern. The neck–and how it wrinkles and sags–produces all sorts of angst in both women and men.

 

You may be doing flexing and stretching exercises, lifting your head to the sky and pulsing your chin, and you may be slathering on one lotion after another, hoping to tighten what used to be beautiful smooth skin. Unfortunately, many of these techniques produce no results. They just make you feel that you are taking action.

 

Definitive improvement is possible, though. In the next few blogs, I’ll be telling you about several options for tightening the skin on your neck, all of which yield dramatic results.

 

First, there is Infini, a radiofrequency (RF) device that smooths wrinkles and firms and plumps skin that has been damaged by routine aging, overexposure to the sun or other stressful conditions. It requires little recuperation time while offering the results of a nonsurgical facelift. Also, it may be used on all types and colors of skin, even that which is dark or tanned.

 

Using a patented 3-dimensional wrinkle reduction technology system, Infini delivers focused heat energy beneath the skin (epidermis), where wrinkles originate. Through tiny microneedles, RF energy is placed precisely where it needs to go to boost the production of collagen, which is the support tissue that keeps skin looking youthful, full and smooth. The outer skin is left cool and untouched.

 

In the end, your neck will appear plump and elastic, and lines and wrinkles will be minimized.

Treat Yourself Now: Schedule a Mommy Makeover

If it’s been about six months since you’ve had your baby, you may be feeling more like yourself. You may have lost most of your pregnancy weight and stopped nursing, you may be sleeping more, you may be back at work. But there may be a few cosmetic issues that have lingered, and really bother you. Most new moms aren’t prepared for some of the changes that their bodies will endure, but many of them are reversible.

 

Pregnancy and breastfeeding can take a toll on the skin and body, specifically the face and stomach. It is not uncommon for you to experience an array of conditions, including acne, acne scarring, melasma (darkened facial skin), cellulite, unwanted fat, unwanted hair growth, prominent facial blood vessels, loose skin, brown spots and stretch marks.

 

You may be feeling that you don’t have the time or the energy to address these issues right now, but your self-esteem and general well-being are important. A few simple cosmetic treatments can boost your overall mood more than you may imagine. Now, with a few holiday weeks coming up, you may find that you have some extra time to invest in yourself.

 

Here’s how I can help:
