For most people, looking youthful is a top priority for their aesthetics. They want to look as vibrant and energized as they feel. While facial aging tends to get the most attention when it comes to rejuvenation treatments, it shouldn’t take all your focus. In fact, for some, the neck ages even more quickly than the face. The area below your chin and above your neck also tends to accumulate stubborn fat, even in some people who maintain a healthy weight.
Fortunately, there are plenty of ways to revitalize your neck and give it a smoother, slimmer, and more youthful profile. Consider these options from our experienced providers at Dermatology Associates of Atlanta.
Non-Surgical Fat Reduction
The “double chin” area is a common place where people retain unwanted fat, and it often doesn’t respond to diet and exercise as effectively as fat in other areas. Our specialists can target and reduce the fat in this specific area with a treatment called CoolSculpting®.
CoolSculpting® applies targeted cooling to the area, and because fat cells are more susceptible to cold than other cells, it kills fat cells under your chin so your body can remove them naturally.
Non-Ablative Laser Skin Rejuvenation
Lasers are among the top tools for reducing signs of aging, and there are several types of laser procedures we can use to create youthful results. For the delicate skin of your neck, lasers like PicoSure®, Fraxel®, and LaseMD™ skin rejuvenation are an ideal choice.
Lasers use targeted wavelengths of light to break down unwanted pigments like age spots and to stimulate collagen production. The added collagen production makes your skin firmer and smoother, reducing fine lines and wrinkles.
The key benefit of laser treatments like LaseMD™, Fraxel®, and PicoSure® skin rejuvenation is that they are safe for use on the neck and they require minimal recovery time, yet they produce exceptional results.
Non-Surgical Skin Tightening
As you age, the skin of your neck naturally becomes thinner and less able to withstand the effects of gravity. As a result, it begins to sag.
Non-surgical skin tightening treatments such as Infini™, which combines microneedling with radiofrequency energy, and Ultherapy®, which uses ultrasound energy, can firm and enhance your neck. While these procedures use different methods, they both work to stimulate collagen growth in the skin of your neck, making the skin smoother and more youthful.
Topical Skin Care
The other treatments on this list are all professional procedures administered by our skilled, trained, and experienced specialists. However, you can complement the results of those treatments and minimize aging at home with the right skin care products. Our providers can discuss your goals, examine your neck, and recommend the ideal skin-firming and wrinkle-reducing products for you.
