When considering aesthetic treatments, most of us focus our attention on areas of the face. Do your eyes look bright and lively? Is your skin smooth and blemish free? Do your cheeks have a defined and youthful contour?
While these are certainly important areas to focus on, you may want to look just a little lower and think about ways to improve the appearance of your neck and chest as well. It can be easy to overlook aging in this area, but thankfully there are many minimally invasive treatments now available to tighten, resurface, and rejuvenate this area. Let’s take a look at the top options available at the Michigan Center for Cosmetic Services.
Morpheus8 RF Microneedling
You may have heard of microneedling, but Morpheus8 takes a tremendous leap forward by including radiofrequency (RF) energy in the treatment process. Microneedling opens up the skin and encourages your body’s natural healing process, while the RF energy delivers therapeutic heat to the deeper tissue layers. The net result: new collagen production, tighter skin, and improved skin tone and texture.
FaceTite Skin Tightening
FaceTite also uses radiofrequency energy, with a greater focus on improving skin tightness. This can be particularly helpful for people who have mild skin sagging along their jawline or loose skin on the neck. Dr. West has performed this treatment for people of all ages, with especially good outcomes when patients start early, at the first signs of aged and sagging skin.
CO2 Laser Peel
Also known as fractional laser resurfacing, a CO2 laser peel focuses on improving skin surface irregularities, such as age spots, wrinkles, scars, rough patches, and dull skin. It can create noticeably more youthful looking skin on the neck and chest. If you haven’t quite been as diligent as you should be about applying sunscreen on your neck and chest, this treatment may be perfect to reverse the effects of photoaging.
A Surgical Option: Neck/Jawline Liposuction
Improving the appearance of the skin on your neck and chest can dramatically improve your overall appearance. But what if you have “submental fullness,” known more commonly as the dreaded “double chin”? Excess fat tissue below the jawline almost never responds to changes in diet and exercise, and surgical removal is your best option.
Dr. West performs neck and jawline lipo to help patients achieve a more defined jaw. By adding this procedure in the mix with other treatments for the area, you can significantly rejuvenate how you look and how you feel about your appearance.
