And Now, Your Neck: Option 6 – Fraxel Repair

Finally, let’s talk about Fraxel Repair, the last of our six treatments for improving the appearance of your aging neck. As the first physician in Long Island to offer this procedure, I am particularly pleased with its continued positive results, particularly for the delicate neck area.

 

Over time, our skin becomes damaged by a host of factors. We can avoid some of them, but not all. The sun, air pollution, stress, fatigue, smoking and other life and age-related challenges can impact the quality of our skin, keeping us from looking as good on the outside as we may feel on the inside.

 

Fraxel Repair is the gold standard for laser skin rejuvenation treatments, the procedure of choice for deep lines, hard-to-erase lip lines, pronounced photodamage, sagging skin, facial wrinkles and discolorations, age-related/sun-damaged rough skin texture, acne scars and surgical scars. For the neck, it offers terrific results, tightening and smoothing out the fine crepey lines that form on its delicate skin.

 

Fraxel Repair allows for deep dermal laser penetration, leaving the skin surrounding the treatment area alone. This untreated skin is unharmed and your healing process in treated areas is accelerated. Fraxel Repair uses carbon dioxide laser beams, which not only minimize wrinkles and discolorations, but also have the ability to tighten skin. This is why it is a smart choice for sagging neck skin.

 

If you’re not sure which of the six options we’ve talked about is best for you, we can help you determine the optimal choice. Whichever treatment you select, we know that you’ll be happy with the effective results, minimal downtime and limited recuperation.

And Now, Your Neck: Option 5 – SmartLipo Triplex

Last week, you read about Exilis Elite, one of several effective nonsurgical options for an aging neck. This week, I’ll tell you about another successful treatment, SmartLipo Triplex.

 

You may be bothered by the tiny wrinkles that have formed over time on the delicate skin of your neck. It may look crepey rather than smooth and taut, and you may have taken to covering up this part of your body with scarves and turtlenecks. Though traditional surgery has been the go-to solution in the past, now we can eradicate the signs of aging with a less invasive procedure, SmartLipo Triplex.

 

Perhaps you’ve heard about this treatment before, or have even chosen it for reducing fat in other areas of your body, such as the stomach, waist, hips, legs or back. You may not realize that SmartLipo Triplex is highly effective for smoothing skin on the small area under your chin and on your neck. SmartLipo Triplex is an FDA-approved laser that offers precise high-definition body sculpting in targeted areas. Fat cells are virtually destroyed and skin is tightened, all in one treatment in our state-of-the-art office.

 

This laser method for fat removal and body sculpting has been used in Europe, Asia and South America for about 10 years and was approved by the FDA for use in the United States in 2006.

As with all of our treatments, a specific plan will be developed just for you, depending on your individual needs and concerns.

And Now, Your Neck: Option 4 – Exilis Elite

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

 

Typically, as we age, we look at our faces in the mirror and notice changes. Many of us don’t pay too much attention to our necks, until one day, we do. It’s not uncommon to overlook the tiny wrinkles that form over time and the crepey appearance that occurs on this delicate skin. You may worry that any treatment that can tighten and smooth this area will have to be complicated and invasive, but that’s not the case. Traditional surgery with large incisions and a long painful recovery is not always necessary, even for treating an aging neck. We have numerous nonsurgical treatment options that we perform routinely in our offices, all of which yield effective and safe results.

 

One of the most popular is Exilis Elite, a treatment that targets thermal energy to your neck with maximum power and complete control. We can safely deliver the right amount of thermal energy in order to tighten, firm and tone loose and sagging skin. Using a dual function handpiece, we can stimulate the collagen support tissues under the skin to remodel and tighten, resulting in firmer skin and a reduction in fatty deposits. You’ll find Exilis Elite to be comfortable and quick (just about 30 minutes), and you’ll see results that are lasting and measurable over time.

 

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.
