There’s a long list of youthful desires we have as we age. This post from Allure.com goes over different treatments we can do for immediate results. One item on the list targeted the neck, and we at Greenwich Medical Spa have a solution for you. Here’s what Allure had to say about achieving a more youthful looking neck.
“If dermatologists and aestheticians wore black capes instead of white coats, you might mistake them for magicians. The experts wave infrared wands and prescribe seemingly supernatural ingredients, radically reversing signs of aging. But they also have subtler, more nuanced tricks up their sleeves. In a matter of hours, and sometimes minutes, doctors can perform quick, comfortable procedures that leave you looking brighter, tauter, and years younger. Believe it or not, they can even refine the shape of your nose (with absolutely no skin off it). Sun spots, spider veins, droopy jowls, dullness—now you see them, now you don’t.
ULTHERA AND BOTOX IN GREENWICH
Neck muscles can start to enlarge and protrude as we age, resulting in the appearance of thick, tight cords. And as if that weren’t hard enough to swallow, “the muscles in the neck and the superficial muscles of the face are connected to one another,” says Brandt. “That means your neck actually pulls your face downward.” It’s a depressing thought with a surprisingly easy fix (that doesn’t involve buying stock in a turtleneck emporium). “I relax the neck muscles with Botox,” says Brandt. “It softens the wrinkles, gets rid of the cords, and lifts the face. Basically, it’s a nonsurgical face-lift.” Botox breaks down every three to four months, so repeat visits are necessary.”
Another neck issue we get as we age is when the skin’s neck starts to droop, giving us a look that we call a “turkey neck” Trust us, no one wants to be described as looking like a turkey. Ultherapy enables our practitioners to direct sound waves not only into the skin but deep under the skin to the same tissue treated in surgery. This gently heats the tissue to lift and tighten loose skin without cutting or disrupting the surface of the skin. Besides the visible effects of lifting and tightening, there is also an invisible result from Ultherapy with the creation of new collagen, which helps the skin maintain its youthfulness. Ultherapy lifts, tightens, and tones loose skin to counteract the effects of time and gravity.
