Excess fatty pockets and loose skin in the neck region may appear unattractive or create the appearance of a double chin. From an aesthetic perspective, this condition can be equally bothersome for men or women.
Neck lift is a relatively less invasive plastic surgery treatment to mitigate signs of aging in the neck area. Another non-surgical solution to address neck fat is Kybella injections.
Two Choices to Consider
Patients considering fat reduction and skin tightening in the neck area should evaluate both options of neck lift surgery and Kybella injections.
Now, MBody also offers innovative neck skin tightening with J-Plasma by Renuvion. This is a minimally-invasive procedure that provides many benefits of a traditional neck lift.
People who are concerned about sagging skin around the jawline or ‘crepey’ skin in the lower face may consider this cutting-edge skin tightening procedure to tone and tighten the skin in a minimally invasive manner.
Modern Body Contouring & Laser Center, led by board certified plastic surgeons Dr. Burton M. Sundin and Dr. Reps B. Sundin, provides neck lift to patients in Northern Virginia, Washington DC, Vienna, McLean, Loudoun, Ashburn, Tysons Corner, Reston, Arlington, Chevy Chase, Richmond, Fredericksburg, and surrounding communities.
Candidates for Non-Surgical Neck Lift Procedures
Kybella injectable treatment is more suitable for candidates who have excess fatty tissue deposits in the neck and beneath the chin.
Liposuction or non-surgical Kybella injections can effectively reduce this double chin appearance. Sometimes, neck lift and lipo or neck lift and Kybella injections may be used in combination to accomplish more complete results.
Difficult-to-treat regions, such as the jowls and the upper neck, can now also be addressed with the J-Plasma by Renuvion procedure. This is a minimally invasive procedure which is suitable for patients with very thin skin in specific facial areas and sagging skin around the jawline.
While the procedure involves the stimulation of collagen production and tissue tightening using heat, the energy is controlled at a level that will not cause burns or damage even the thinner skin tissue.
For this reason, it can effectively treat a ‘turkey neck’ or sagging skin around the lower jaw and chin without causing damage to the skin.
The FDA approved Kybella treatment involves administering injections directly into the targeted fatty pockets beneath the chin. Plastic surgery procedures are completed in a single day.
However, in most cases, Kybella injectable procedure will require two to four treatment sessions. The time taken for each session will be around 20 minutes, and a maximum of six sessions may be necessary.
The J-Plasma by Renuvion neck skin tightening procedure can be undertaken using local anesthesia. The procedure requires only tiny incisions to be made. In this procedure, a stream of Helium plasma energy is delivered to the tissue sub-dermally or directly beneath the skin.
A Sparkling Outcome is the Goal
The heat produced from this energy promotes collagen production deep within the tissue and causes a skin tightening effect that only enhances over time. The outcome is more youthful, tauter, and firmer skin in the treated sites.
There is no laser, ultrasound, or RF device to date that is capable of tightening and firming skin at the same level as J-Plasma by Renuvion. For people seeking to enhance the tone and tautness of skin around the neck and face, J-Plasma by Renuvion offers excellent results.
