Neck Lift vs. Neck Tightening: What’s the Difference?
A neck lift is a cosmetic plastic surgery procedure known formally as a platysmaplasty, and it involves removing excess skin and fat to smooth and slim the profile of your neck. Neck tightening treatments often use injectable treatment options that can enhance the appearance of the neck without the commitment of a surgical procedure.
Sculptra® is a popular non-invasive injectable treatment used to fill volume loss. This FDA-approved dermal filler is comprised of poly-L-lactic acid, which is a biocompatible substance that your body naturally absorbs. This unique filler stimulates your body’s natural collagen production, helping to create a fuller, smoother appearance.
Known as the Nefertiti Lift, using BOTOX® to lift and tighten your neck is a popular, non-invasive, rejuvenating anti-aging treatment method. BOTOX is a neuromodulator, meaning it alters the way nerve signals and muscles interact with each other. When injected, BOTOX prevents nerve signals from reaching muscles, preventing muscles from contracting and creating a smoother, more relaxed appearance.
Ultherapy® is a treatment method used to tighten loose skin by utilizing ultrasound technology. The energy from the ultrasound stimulates your body’s natural collagen production process. Collagen is essential for providing your skin with structure for a smoother appearance, but production naturally decreases as you age. The production of collagen creates more gradual results, but they can create a refreshed, rejuvenated appearance.
Am I a Good Candidate?
Most people unhappy with the appearance of loose skin on their neck may be able to benefit from a non-surgical neck lift or neck tightening treatment option. However, it is important to have realistic goals and expectations for this treatment method. The results may be more subtle than a surgical procedure, and results are semi-permanent.
A consultation with our team can help ensure this is the best treatment option for you and your goals. The best results may require a regular series of treatments to achieve and maintain. Our team can help you develop the best treatment plan for you.
