Neck Lift Treatment
A neck lift is a type of procedure that will help to improve the appearance of the neck. There are many different types of neck lifts, ranging from surgical to non surgical neck lifts. A neck lift can improve the signs of ageing in a person, as well as remove excess fat and relax the skin that causes an individual to have jowls, improve loose excessive skin, improve muscle banding in the neck and also remove excess fatty deposits under the chin. The neck is the first place an individual will start to show signs of ageing, yet many neglect this area of the body. As the neck begins to age, there are many signs of ageing. These include excessive, sagging skin on the neck itself, having a “turkey gobbler”- muscles in the neck that have sagged and separate in the midline, and having too much fat in the neck, or even too little if the neck has been treated with too much liposuction.
What is the difference between a non-surgical neck lift and a surgical neck lift?
A non-surgical neck lift is a non-invasive procedure that involves no cutting or needles. There are many different kinds of non-surgical neck lifts available. A skin specialist will be able to provide a complete list. A surgical neck lift, on the other hand, involves making incisions on the neck in various places to tighten up the neck.

Refirme Skin Tightening for Neck Lift
A non-surgical neck lift procedure that is worth looking into is Refirme Skin Tightening. This FDA skin cleared treatment utilizes Elos technology to achieve a more youthful appearance to the neck area. Elos technology will help to protect the epidermis while precisely targeting areas of the neck that have been preheated by the optimal energy. Cooling of the skin will provide comfort and safety for the individual experiencing the procedure.
Refirme is a painless treatment that has no downtime needed. A combination of bi-polar radio frequencies and light energies heat the dermal tissue in the neck to stimulate collagen. The stimulated collagen will produce a firming effect for the skin. The texture of the skin is smoother, toned, and more luminous as wrinkles are reduced.
When looking for a skin specialist to perform a neck lift, keep in mind that an individual has the right to ask questions about the surgery and who will be performing it. Ask what training the skin specialist has received, as well as what the typical outcome is for the neck lift that was selected. Ask if there are any foreseen complications, and always ask to see a portfolio of previous work done by the skin specialist. Share your complete medical history with your skin specialist as well to be certain that you are a good candidate for the neck lift procedure chosen.
