In this week’s Q&A, I’m discussing something that’s the bane of most of my patients’ lives, a wrinkly neck, or the less glamorous term ‘turkey neck’ or ‘neck bands’
As the years go by, it’s inevitable that skin loses its natural elasticity and firmness which leads to a wrinkly neck. It’s a really big issue for many women above the age of about 40-45. It shows the signs of ageing like no other but, thankfully, there are some simple non-surgical solutions to help tighten and redefine a wrinkled neck.
Depending on how old you are there are some highly effective treatments available to treat the neck that are very straightforward procedures.
- Ultherapy® is the only FDA-cleared, non-invasive and revolutionary technology device for lifting the skin on the neck and chin. It uses ultrasound technology to deliver heat to the deeper layers of the skin right down to the neck muscles (platysmal muscles). This stimulates remodelling and tightening of collagen. The skin then lifts and tightens improving the jawline too. Results are very effective because your practitioner can ensure the ultrasound energy is precisely targeted to where it is needed most.
- Thread Lifting is a 30-minute procedure that everyone is talking about – celebrities have had it done and this results in a refined, lifted and natural appearance without resorting to surgery. We place fine threads just under the surface of the skin with local anaesthetic in little tiny points to lift and tug up the tissue in the area you need it most. This gives added oomph to the neck making it look smoother, younger and fresher. Results last approximately 18 months.
