Your facial skin extends past your jaw and includes your neck. Don’t ignore it and treat it with the same care!
Aging. We all go through it.
And every part of our body goes through it, too.
Think about it. Our hair turns gray, our eyesight gets a little worse, and our waistlines get a little thicker.
The signs of aging also show up on our faces, through fine lines, little creases and wrinkles.
The neck is also affected by the aging process as our skin begins to droop and sag. But while we can’t stop aging, we can fight back with an effective anti-aging skin care solution called NeckLase.
As we age, our skin loses its elasticity, making it more prone to wrinkling and sagging.
Our skin cells begin to break down, which means they lose their ability to produce collagen and elastin.
This causes our skin to become saggy, thinner and less firm. Sagging is especially evident in the neck and along the jaw.
Our skin texture also changes, and you may notice your skin is dry or rough.
The most common signs of an aging neck are the development of:
Muscle bands occur due to the regular use of the platysma muscle, the muscle responsible for moving the skin and tissues around the lower part of your mouth down and out (think about when you frown or grimace). These actions cause repeated creases in your lower face, and the vertical lines that form reflect the edges of your muscle.
Excess fat is also a common complaint among many men and women. In addition, fat deposits are often considered an age-related issue because they develop on the neck for most people due to changes in hormones.
There are several ways to treat sagging neck skin, but one of the best treatments to take care of sagging skin is fractional laser skin tightening like NeckLase.
Fractional lasers work by targeting specific areas of the skin with very small beams of light. This allows us to target only certain parts of the skin without damaging surrounding tissue. The result is a smoother, tighter appearance.
Fractional lasers are ideal for treating sagging neck skin because they allow us to target problem areas without harming nearby healthy skin. They’re also great at reducing the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.
When using fractional lasers to reduce sagging neck skin, we first determine which area needs treatment. Then we apply a topical numbing cream to the targeted area. Next, we place a protective gel over the treated area. After this, we use a handpiece to direct tiny pulses of energy into the skin. Each pulse targets just a portion of the skin, so there’s no need to cover large areas. As the laser penetrates deeper into the skin, it stimulates new collagen growth, resulting in firmer, younger-looking skin.
When it comes to sagging neck skin, fractional laser treatment offers some distinct advantages over other methods. Here are some benefits to consider:
Most people experience minimal discomfort during fractional laser treatment. Some people feel mild stinging or tingling as the laser passes through their skin. But these sensations usually last less than a minute. Studies show that more than 90 percent of patients report feeling little to no pain during treatment.
The neck is an excellent treatment area for fractional laser treatment. We can also perform fractional laser treatment on any other area of the body where you want to improve the appearance of sagging skin. We may recommend starting with the neck and then moving on to other areas if desired.
Our goal is to help our patients achieve beautiful, youthful-looking skin. So whether you’re interested in improving the appearance of sagging neck skin or another part of your body, we look forward to working with you!
Yes! Our experienced aesthetician will be happy to discuss combining treatments that address different concerns. For example, we often combine fractional laser treatment with Botox® injections to relax facial muscles and reduce forehead wrinkles.
We’ll always do our best to provide you with a customized plan that addresses all your skin care needs.
