It’s Thanksgiving time, and we’re looking forward to lots and lots of turkey — that is, the delicious turkey served on our plates, NOT the dreaded turkey neck. If you’re worried about sagging, loose skin on your neck, we’ve got two proven skin tightening treatments for you! Ultherapy® and Vivace™ RF microneedling are both highly effective, and you may even achieve your best results with a combination treatment. Whichever method you decide to use, we recommend coming into AVIE! Medspa and Laser Center for a careful consultation.
So you can better understand your options and find the best rejuvenation treatment for you, here are the main differences between Ultherapy and RF microneedling:
The only non-invasive procedure FDA-cleared to lift skin on the face, neck and chest with ultrasound energy, Ultherapy provides a subtle uplift by tightening the deep foundational layers of the muscle and skin. You’ll see gradual results in the months following your treatment as your skin produces new collagen and elastin. Plus, there is no downtime with Ultherapy. AVIE! has been recognized as an Ultherapy Ultra Treatment provider, and New Beauty Magazine recognized AVIE! as one of the top Ultherapy providers in the Southeast region.
Vivace Micro Needle RF
Microneedling is ideal for tightening and smoothing the surface layers of the skin. Unlike Ultherapy, which is entirely non-invasive by using ultrasound energy to stimulate skin, RF microneedling creates tiny wounds with microneedles. Vivace is unique in its abilities, however, because it combines microneedling with the use of radiofrequency (RF) energy to stimulate and tighten the skin. Vivace microneedling stimulates your skin to produce healthy new collagen and elastin, which also helps improve skin tone and texture, smooth crepey skin, reduce acne scars and blemishes and diminish lines and wrinkles! Results will appear within two weeks, and you’ll see continued improvements up to six months following treatment.
Which is the best option for me?
Overall, if you’re looking to address textural concerns, RF microneedling is ideal for you. If you prefer a subtle and gradual overall lift to your targeted area, Ultherapy is the way to go. Both treatments are wonderful for reversing common signs of aging — which includes tightening that turkey neck! You may even find, after consulting with AVIE!, that a rejuvenation regimen combining both treatments (performed at separate times) can help you achieve optimal results.
It’s time to tame that turkey neck, and we are more than happy to help! If you have any questions about which skin tightening treatment will work best for your unique goals and needs, please contact us at (703) 870-3844 or request a consultation online today.
