Neck Lift

The neck area can be quite a visible sign of ageing, the skin on our neck and décolletage is prone to premature ageing as it’s three times thinner than the skin on our faces. It also lacks the regenerative ability required to bounce back when damaged. 

Environmental factors such as excessive UV exposure and over sensitisation from perfume spraying are key causes for our necks and décolletages ageing before their time. Some women can develop an ageing ‘veiny’ appearance to the neck. This is due to a muscle called the platysma becoming more prominent, resulting in platysmal bands. These bands contribute to the ‘turkey neck’ that many women experience as they get older. 

A number of treatments are available to address your neck issues including HIFU, Radio Frequency, Profhilo® treatment and anti-wrinkle injections, a consultation will be required to examine, diagnose and determine the best course of action for you.

Injectable anti-wrinkle treatments involve small amounts of toxin being injected into specific areas of the face and neck to weaken the muscle movement. This prevents the muscles from contracting to form wrinkles, or from bulging to form a ‘turkey neck’ appearance.  

Profhilo® is very effective on the neck areas it nourishes dermal cells and restores firmness of the skin. This treatment will hydrate your skin from the inside out, getting rid of crepey skin. A skin laxity treatment, Profhilo® uses patented technologies engineered for ‘skin remodelling’ a revolutionary concept of smoothing wrinkles rather than filling them.

The HIFU  treatment lifts, tightens, tones and reduces loose skin to counteract the effects of both time and gravity. The high intensity focused ultrasound penetrates the foundation layer of your skin, bypassing the surface of the skin and delivering targeted energy specifically into the deep, structural tissues and muscles where collagen lives. As the collagen fibers rejuvenate and shorten there is a tightening effect and gently and gradually the skin and tissue memory is restored.

Radio Frequency is an ultrasound-based technology that is used to cause controlled micro-injury to deeper layers of skin where collagen and elastin fibres are manufactured. The tissue is heated to 40℃ using RF. This causes the body’s natural healing process to be activated i.e. production of new fibroblasts that then form new collagen and elastin fibres over the coming weeks.
