In general, a PrecisionTx™ laser neck lift provides long-lasting results! This treatment cannot stop the aging process, so skin will continue to sag over time, and you could develop new chin and fat deposits. Having said that, it’s reasonable to expect several years of tighter neck contours, and some people have found that the results persist for the long-term when they maintain a stable body weight.
Here are a few tips for protecting those great results:
- Protect your skin from sun exposure. Radiation in the form of UVA and UVB rays from the sun (and tanning booths) lead to saggy, aged skin. In fact, the Skin Cancer Foundation says sun damage is responsible for 90 percent of visible changes to the skin. Wear sunscreen all over your neck and face when you’re out in the sun. An extra-wide brimmed hat can also keep the sun off your skin.
- Pursue a stable body weight. Weight gain could lead to new fat accumulation around your neck and under your chin.
- Cleanse and moisturize. We’re all pretty good about washing and moisturizing our faces, but it’s equally important to have a skin care routine for your neck to promote clean, healthy skin.
There is also some degree of genes and family history at play when it comes to how our skin sags and ages. While there may not be much you can do about that, you can ask Dr. Jean about this innovative, non-invasive laser treatment to reduce excess neck fat and tighten the skin.
A laser neck lift is ideal for mild to moderate skin sagging. While it cannot provide the same level of skin tightening and lasting results as a surgical neck lift, it is a really good option for people who are looking for an effective non-surgical lift. The results speak for themselves. With a relatively fast procedure, with no need for anesthesia, the neck contour will be sharper and better defined after a single treatment session. The only way to know if it is a good match for your goals is to talk to Dr. Jean.
