Non-Surgical Neck Lift
The skin on the neck can lose elasticity with aging, forming lines and wrinkles. The skin under the chin can loosen, resulting in a less defined chin and jawline. To maintain a shapely, slim neck and chin that looks youthful, neck skin tightening is needed. At Maia Plastic Surgery, we offer a non-surgical neck lift that can restore a more youthful neck line at our clinic in the greater Washington, DC, area.
The skin on the face and neck is vulnerable to lines, wrinkles and sagging as you age. This is partly due to the loss of collagen and elastin in the skin, which helps the skin stay firm and more resilient. Most people begin making less collagen starting in their twenties. The skin becomes less elastic, allowing lines and wrinkles to form and the skin to sag. On the neck, this can create loose skin and wrinkles – even turning into what looks like a turkey wattle with time. To slow the aging process, we offer neck skin tightening to restore collagen levels and elasticity to the skin.
What Is Neck Skin Tightening?
While a surgical neck lift removes excess skin and tightens it through incisions, a non-surgical neck lift can be accomplished with skin tightening treatments. This procedure is non-invasive and appropriate for addressing the early stages of aging of the neck. Using radiofrequency or ultrasound energy, the skin’s collagen can be increased. Over several weeks or a few months, the skin can become firmer, creating a smoother, sleeker neck and chin. This can slow the aging process and delay the need for a surgical neck lift.
If you have noticed wrinkles or lines forming on your neck or your chin is becoming less defined, neck skin tightening may be right for you. Contact us at Maia Plastic Surgery to schedule a non-surgical neck lift consultation at our clinic in Tysons Corner, VA.
