Because the skin on the neck is much thinner than that of other areas on the face, it ages more readily
An aging neck can give away a person’s age faster than any other part of the body. Many women will carefully protect their faces or possibly undergo some sort of facial rejuvenation and yet their necks show signs of significant sun damage.
Because the skin on the neck is much thinner than that of other areas on the face, it ages more readily. One such example is when fat is lost from under the neck; this can cause unsightly loose strands and bands of skin and muscle to appear which are often referred to as ‘turkey neck’. Another sign is a double chin, which is an excessive collection of fat directly beneath the chin.
There are a number of different treatments available at Aesthetica Clinic to create a balance between the face and neck for overall harmony through the reduction of the appearance of lines and wrinkles in your neck. At Aesthetica clinic, there is no need to go under the knife for rejuvenating and lifting your neck. One has several rejuvenating options based on the skin’s condition and type like Mesotherapy, Peeling treatments and the renowned Harmony XL.
Mesotherapy is a virtually painless mico-injection of vitamins, minerals and amino acids placed just under the surface of the skin. The injected solution is individually prepared and unlike other medical treatments, it is administered directly to the desired area. The most common side effect is bruising or swelling at the injection site which will resolve on its own after a few days.
Peels are one of the most effective strategies for resurfacing and rejuvenation of the skin. The main aim of peels is to speed up the rate of cell renewal while at the same time removing surface blemishes, scars, and fine lines. Enhanced skin renewal increases the production of collagen and elastin.
For the first three days after applying the face peel, your skin will become dry and at the end of the third day, it will begin to peel. Some dark blotches may occur and the skin may look more wrinkled. This is due to the dryness caused by the peeling agents. Undergoing routine peels is an integral part of any anti-aging regimen. Typically this starts by an intensive protocol of weekly peels lasting for four to six weeks, followed by monthly maintenance sessions. The results are remarkable and look completely natural.
Harmony XL offers three technologies. The first technology is Pixel laser. This works by creating thousands of microscopic perforations, but the skin around each of these perforations remains intact. It allows the skin’s top layer to heal from the edge of tiny holes very rapidly. The result being new collagen starts to grow which improves your skin’s texture and tone. You can expect your skin to be somewhat flushed after the treatment similar to a mild sun burn, but this should subside in about 48 hours and is totally forgotten after you see your newly rejuvenated neck.
The second is Super Skin Tightening (SST), this uses near infrared light which firms up loose skin giving a ‘tightening’ effect.
The third is skin rejuvenation with Advanced Fluorescence Technology (AFT). This technology eliminates superficial pigmented and vascular marks to even out and tone skin color and reduce tiny broken blood vessels.
The combination of all three treatments will leave your skin looking and feeling fresher, smoother and younger. A course of treatments is recommended, usually 4 – 6 sessions. Before having any of the above treatments one will have a consultation to evaluate specific needs. Any health issues and risks will be explained.
“Neck rejuvenation treatments provide a solution to people searching to improve the appearance of the neck and under the jaw line. This is designed to reduce the look of loose, sagging skin. Treatments can be performed alone, or in conjunction with each others to receive the harmony in the face gaze. Combined, these procedures can provide a complete facial makeover. A rejuvenated neck gives people the appearance of younger age”, said Dr. Maria Anglo Khattar, Founder and Managing Director of Aesthetica Clinic.
