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comes, or you want to wear that favourite outfit, many women – and men, for that matter – can feel self-conscious and withdrawn.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. Dermal fillers are great to plump out wrinkles and have long-lasting results. Or there’s always anti-wrinkle injectables, 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.

    Treatment

    Radio frequency tightening

    RF is a leading procedure using energy to heat the sub-dermal layers of skin to above-normal body temperature. Because the area has been overheated our healing mode is triggered to repair damage, stimulating our natural collagen production process. The healing promotes subsequent re-contouring and modeling, with wrinkles softening and loose skin tightening.
    For neck & face, we offer RF as part of our Signature monthly facial.
    The RF head is moved swiftly around the neck and facial areas, taking care to target your fine lines & wrinkles.
    The treatment is very comfortable with the feeling of a warm massage. Visual results can be seen immediately after treatment.

    Platysmal injections with anti-wrinkle injections

    The platysma are superficial bands of muscle which work from under our chin to our lower neck and often protrude giving us an ageing appearance.
    We use anti-wrinkle injections to aid visual rejuvenation which block signals from the nerves to the muscles. If we inject the platysmal bands we get subsequent relaxation of the bands of muscles in our neck to great visual effect.
    This treatment is carried out by a doctor and is not invasive.

    Surgical neck lift

    A neck lift - also known as a platysmaplasty - is a rejuvenating surgical procedure whereby loose skin along the jaw line and on the neck is removed. Sometimes this is combined with liposuction to reduce any fatty tissue giving a smoother more defined appearance.

    Aqualyx fat reduction under chin

    Aqualyx is suitable for patients who do not want the more invasive liposuction or laser lipo treatments, who are looking to remove fat from a focused area of the body. It is highly successful in the chin area.
    A sugar solution is injected into localised fat, which in turn through a chemical conflict liquefies the cell by encasing it & destroying it permanently. Lipids are released that are then passed out naturally through the lymphatic system.
    A reduction in fatty deposits can be seen after just one treatment, although some patients may require more treatments.

    Procedure Time
    up to 30 mins
