The Neck is an aesthetically important area and can prove as telling as the backs of hands in revealing one’s age. The neck is subject to many degenerative changes such as loss of collagen and elastin, accumulation of fat, and exposure to chemicals such as perfume and cleaning solutions. The neck area is particularly prone to premature aging because of the increased amount of sun exposure.
Titan is an infrared light treatment designed to heat the deep dermis of the skin, stimulating new collagen formation. The treatment effectively improves skin tone and elasticity and may be used on many areas of the body including the face, jawline, under the chin, the neck, arms, abdomen, and legs. Compared to other laser treatments, the Titan is a gentler procedure providing more uniform and consistent heating and more even distribution. Titan is a wonderful alternative for patients of any color that are not yet ready for a face and/or neck lift, as it helps to tighten collagen that the patient already has, but also stimulates new collagen. This no-down time treatment is mostly requested for the face and neck
Good candidates for the Titan treatment include men and women of any age who are looking to improve the appearance of skin laxity but are not ready for surgery. While Titan can provide a rested and refreshed look, the results are not as dramatic as with surgery. Titan can be combined with other surgical and non-surgical procedures as a finishing touch.
Other treatments offered on the neck:
Laser Genesis: Laser Genesis skin therapy treats the conditions typically associated with premature signs of aging and sun damage, such as excessive redness, large pores, uneven texture, and fine-line wrinkles. The procedure has also been scientifically proven to produce new collagen. By gently heating the upper dermis, Laser Genesis stimulates collagen regrowth, which smooths your skin and adds elasticity and youthfulness. Also, it generates heat in dilated capillaries to reduce redness. The procedure is performed without numbing creams or gel, and the only minimal discomfort is from heat generated during the treatment.
Botox or Xeomin: Excessively prominent or hanging neck muscle bands at the front of the neck and under the chin can very effectively be reduced by injecting small amounts of Botox or Xeomin directly into them. A few days following the injection, the bands just appear to fade away, resulting in an often dramatically improved silhouette. A further development of this has been the so called “Nefertiti Lift”. For this, the botulinum is injected into the neck bands at the front of the neck, as well as the side bands that insert into the angle of the jaw. These side bands are what pull down on the lower side of the face and aggrevate the jowls, and by injecting these the bands relax, the jowls reduce and the lower face lifts. This has the effect of streamlining the neck and narrowing and lifting the heavy lower face.
