Why does skin on the neck typically wrinkle and sag faster than on other areas of the body? One of the main reasons for this is that neck skin is thinner and has less collagen. With age, your neck muscles begin to weaken, and your delicate neck skin loses its ability to stretch and remain tight. While you could choose to hide under turtlenecks and scarves this holiday season, why not address your “turkey neck” head-on? At AVIE!, we’re dedicated to offering the most advanced non-surgical skin tightening solutions to target lax skin not only on the neck, but also on the face, chest and body.
Let’s explore the top skin tightening treatments we’re thankful for:
If you think a surgical neck-lift is the only way to tighten and smooth sagging skin, think again. Known as the non-surgical uplift, Ultherapy is the only non-invasive treatment FDA cleared to lift skin on the face, neck and chest using tried-and-true ultrasound energy. By targeting the deep foundational layers of muscle and skin — including those typically addressed in cosmetic surgery — Ultherapy can lift and tone without disrupting the skin’s surface. As Ultherapy stimulates your body’s natural healing response, it triggers a tightening effect from within. After just a single treatment, you will notice lifting and toning of your treated area over the next three to six months as new collagen and elastin are produced. As this collagen-building process continues, further improvements can appear up to a year following your treatment.
Treating fragile neck skin with complete precision is a simple feat for VirtueRF microneedling. FDA-cleared VirtueRF offers the most advanced microneedling technology by combining microneedling with potent radiofrequency (RF) energy and LED light. With no social downtime, VirtueRF can smooth crepey skin anywhere on the body, diminishing wrinkles, tightening lax skin and improving overall texture. While its precise microneedles create tiny treatment zones in the skin, prompting the growth of new collagen and elastin, its RF energy heats the skin to trigger a tightening effect. What’s more, VirtueRF can add LED light to either reduce acne-causing bacteria (Blue LED) or treat common signs of aging (Red LED). We recommend a series of three to four treatments to achieve your desired outcome. You can expect initial results to appear within two weeks, with continued improvements in the next six months as your skin continues to generate new collagen and elastin.
Other skin tightening options for the body:
● EMSCULPT NEO®
While most-known for its ability to produce simultaneous muscle building and fat reduction, EMSCULPT NEO non-invasive body sculpting also has skin-tightening benefits that make it an ideal option for those who want to achieve it all in one convenient, no-downtime treatment. Combining RF energy to heat and destroy fat cells and HIFEM+ energy to contract targeted muscles and build volume can also result in increased collagen and elastin production. These key proteins provide firmness, strength and elasticity to help keep the skin smooth, tight and youthful.
Along with sagging neck skin, another challenging skin condition for so many women is cellulite. Since it’s caused by so many factors, including body fat and skin laxity, it can be difficult to treat. That is, until EMTONE non-invasive skin tightening, which helps address all causes of cellulite and loose, crepey skin without downtime. EMTONE is the first and only device that simultaneously delivers both thermal and targeted pressure energy to break up connective bands of tissue and stimulate new collagen and elastin growth. The result is smoother, more supple skin texture where you need it.
