As we age, our skin tends to sag, causing our features to look different. Neck rejuvenation treatments at La Beau Visage Medical Spa in Frisco, TX help to reverse these unwanted effects of aging by restoring the volume of the skin on the neck, giving it a tighter, more youthful appearance. Our treatment options are minimally invasive, don’t require extended downtime, and offer subtle yet satisfying results.
How Does Neck Rejuvenation Work?
Our neck rejuvenation treatments use radiofrequency energy to trigger tissue remodeling in the deeper layers of the skin. This process causes a boost in collagen production, which gives the neck its firm and youthful appearance. Depending on the treatment performed, we may use a combination of microneedling and radiofrequency energy to heat the deeper layers of the skin, triggering the body’s natural regenerative abilities.
Based on your skin condition and cosmetic goals, we will create a customized treatment plan that suits your needs. Most people undergoing the treatment expect to have 1 to 3 sessions every month to achieve significant results. As you follow your treatment plan, you should see more pronounced results that last for several months.
Before your appointment, we will schedule an initial consultation, where we will ask about your cosmetic goals and assess the condition of your skin. This assessment will help us determine the best course of treatment for achieving your desired results.
Additionally, we may gather information about your medical history before starting your treatment. One of the key pieces of information we may ask about is the medications or supplements that you are currently taking. We may also inquire about skincare or cosmetic products you use on your neck area to ensure that these products will not interfere with healing after your treatment.
Day of Your Treatment Session
Cleansing is an essential part of your rejuvenating treatment. We will remove any dirt, oil, or makeup from the skin surface, allowing for better penetration once the skin is exposed to radiofrequency energy. Next, a cooling gel or numbing cream is applied to your neck to ensure you feel comfortable and relaxed throughout your session. It will allow us to glide the device smoothly across your skin while ensuring you do not feel excessive heat.
After preparing your skin, we will then use a radiofrequency device to deliver gentle, controlled heat over your neck skin. You will feel warm, gentle sensations. It can take 10-30 minutes to finish your treatment, depending on the treatment method. We will cleanse and soothe your skin as we complete your session.
There is a very short recovery period following your treatment. However, most people are able to return to their normal daily activities after their skin tightening session. You may need to take some time off work for a few days and be gentle on your treated skin. Avoid strenuous activities and direct sun exposure that can cause excessive sweating and irritation in your neck area.
Rejuvenating the neck through radiofrequency technology produces gradual results. Noticeable improvements in the appearance of your neck may be apparent within 1 to 2 weeks after your session. However, as collagen production increases after your treatment, you may see improved results by up to 75% during the first 3 months.
What Are Your Treatment Options?
We offer various neck rejuvenation treatments, each designed to tighten your skin and make it firmer. These treatments provide long-term rejuvenation results. We use the latest technologies and techniques to ensure your treatments are effective, safe, and gentle on your skin.
Combining radiofrequency energy and microneedling to stimulate collagen production in the skin, Morpheus 8 treatments help you achieve tighter, smoother, and younger-looking skin. The treatment process involves using a device with ultra-fine needles to create micro-injuries in the skin. At the same time, these needles deliver radiofrequency energy deep into the dermis later, where they stimulate collagen production.
The heat generated from your Morpheus 8 treatment also causes an immediate contraction of existing collagen fibers, leading to an instant tightening effect. As new collagen is produced after your treatment, you’ll see visible improvements in the texture and tone of your skin.
Like Morpheus 8, Fractora treatments use radiofrequency energy and microneedling to improve the appearance of the skin. However, if you’re more concerned about achieving a smoother skin texture with fewer fine lines, Fractora may be the better option, as it doesn’t penetrate the skin as deep as Morpheus 8.
While Morpheus 8 can penetrate the skin as deep as 4 millimeters (0.16 inches), Fractora is designed to penetrate no deeper than 3 millimeters (0.12 inches). This penetration depth allows us to precisely target superficial skin issues such as fine lines and overall texture.
If you have mild to moderate skin laxity in the neck area, you may benefit from a more gentle treatment option such as Forma. This rejuvenating treatment only uses heat and radiofrequency energy to address skin laxity. The results are very natural-looking, but you can expect to undergo several treatment sessions to achieve significant results.
Who Is a Good Candidate for Neck Rejuvenation?
If you have loose, sagging skin in your neck area, you may have considered getting a skin tightening treatment to address this concern and rejuvenate your appearance. But are you a good candidate for non-surgical skin rejuvenation treatments? Below are signs that you may be a good candidate for the treatment.
You Have Mild to Moderate Skin Laxity
The degree of your skin laxity is an important factor to consider when deciding whether non-surgical skin rejuvenation is right for you. While non-surgical treatments such as radiofrequency energy can improve skin texture and tone to some degree, they cannot address significant sagging or drooping caused by severe skin laxity. In these cases, surgical options like neck lifts may be more appropriate. If you only have mild to moderate skin laxity, it’s more likely that your skin will respond positively to non-surgical treatment.
You Have Sun-Damaged Skin
In addition to skin aging, sun damage is a common issue many people face, especially those who enjoy spending time outdoors. If you wish to restore your skin’s healthy, youthful look, we can help. Our rejuvenating treatments combine radiofrequency energy and microneedling to stimulate tissue regeneration, improving the appearance of damaged skin.
You Want To Avoid the Risks of Surgery
If you want to avoid the risks, costs, and recovery time associated with a neck lift procedure, a great alternative is to consider our skin tightening treatments. One major advantage of our neck tightening treatments is that they can be performed without general anesthesia or incisions. This means significantly less downtime and virtually no side effects compared to surgery. As long as you are gentle on your treated areas, you can return to your daily activities immediately after your appointment.
Is the Treatment Safe for All Skin Types?
People with darker skin tones or sensitive skin can undergo the treatment without worrying about complications. Unlike some laser treatments, skin rejuvenation through radiofrequency energy uses heat waves to stimulate the deeper layers of the skin, stimulating collagen production and tightening sagging skin. Radiofrequency energy and microneedling cause very little damage and pigmentation changes in the skin, making them very safe.
What’s the Best Age for This Treatment?
When it comes to aging (and starting your anti-aging journey), one of the most common misconceptions is that all skin ages at the same rate. However, this couldn’t be further from the truth. Every individual’s skin ages at a slightly different rate, which can be affected by genetics, the use of skin care products, and environmental exposure.
Although there is no right age for treating skin laxity, most patients start their skin rejuvenation journey between the ages of 35 to 50. Skin laxity starts to become apparent from age 35 to 40 and can impact a person’s self-esteem. However, for those who would like to take preventative measures or may be suffering from premature skin aging due to excessive sun exposure, getting skin tightening treatments in their late 20s may be a better option.
