Neck lifts and skin tightening treatments
One of the most obvious signs of ageing is a wrinkly, turkey neck – a horrible term which describes the sagging skin, wobbly double chin fat and/or lines which mark this very exposed part of our body. We religiously moisturise our faces and décolletage, yet many people forget to take care of their neck; nor is it an area (known as the platysma muscle) that we think to exercise. The neck is sadly neglected and, over time, it can really show. While scarves and turtle-neck jumpers can disguise the slackened skin, when summer comes, or you want to wear that favourite outfit, many women – and men, for that matter – can feel self-conscious and withdrawn.
Fortunately, there are several neck tightening treatments available which can help you achieve a smoother, younger-looking neck you’ll want to show off. Among our non-surgical solutions is the Thread Lift, a treatment in which the skin is lifted and tightened using threads. The procedure is so quick, it’s been nicknamed the ‘Lunchtime Lift’. Another option is for our resident GP or nurse to inject the skin with dermal fillers, to plump out wrinkles. Both of these treatments can have long-lasting results. Or there’s always anti-wrinkle injectibles, to give you a softer look.
Alternatively, you could undergo a course of Radio Frequency skin tightening. This clever technique tricks the body into thinking it has been damaged – it hasn’t, it’s only been heated to just above normal body temperature – and needs to heal itself by producing collagen. This can reduce the effects of loose skin and wrinkles.
A more permanent treatment is a surgical neck lift, a potentially life-enhancing procedure which will be discussed with you and performed by a qualified surgeon.
