Thermage for Neck

There comes a time in a woman’s life when her neck area isn’t as beautiful as it once was. Wrinkles and sagging skin are a very common, yet unattractive look in women over 40. As much as we want to fix loose skin, we may not be ready to hit the operation table just yet, so a non-invasive cosmetic treatment that brings tighter and firmer skin would be the perfect option. Thermage for the neck is a great non-invasive treatment that delivers smoother skin and more.

Why is the skin on your neck so sensitive?

The skin on your neck and low neckline is three times thinner than the skin on your face, so it lacks the regenerative ability to protect itself from damage; such as overexposure to UV rays. Because this skin is so sensitive, it tends to age prematurely.

What is Thermage?

Thermage is a non-invasive cosmetic treatment for skin tightening that uses laser radiofrequency technology to boost the skin’s production of collagen in a safe, progressive, and natural way. After a Thermage treatment, you can expect a tighter and younger-looking neck without side effects or downtime.

How does Thermage work? How does it stimulate collagen production?

There are collagen strands underneath the visible outer layer of your skin. Collagen is in charge of keeping your skin firm and tight. As you age, your skin’s collagen production slows down and your skin, as it encounters environmental stress, loses firmness. This results in a discolored, wrinkled, or sagging neck. A treatment of Thermage for the neck uses radiofrequency to heat the deeper, collagen-rich underlayer beneath your skin. As the “old” collagen strands heat up and contract, the body naturally produces new ones; boosting your skin’s look and smoothing facial and body contours.

Thermage for the neck before and after

Does Thermage tighten loose skin on the neck?

Absolutely! Thermage is a safe and effective option if you want to tighten skin and rejuvenate your neck area. Think of Thermage as a neck lift that will give you immediate and long-lasting results without the pain or downtime that comes from cosmetic surgeries. A Thermage treatment for your neck will tighten the loose skin and smooth lines and wrinkles in a single treatment, just like it would for the rest of your body skin.

Does Thermage work on “Turkey Neck”?

Turkey neck is a rather harsh term for an aging neck. As you age, your muscles get weaker and the skin loses its elasticity. People used to think that the only way to get rid of this was to have an actual neck lift, but a Thermage treatment will provide improved definition in your jawline and under the chin with skin tightening. Additionally, your skin will be more hydrated, so it will look glowing and younger.

How long do Thermage skin tightening benefits last?

One of the best benefits of skin tightening Thermage is its durability: a single treatment session of a Thermage for the neck treatment can give you tighter skin for up to two years! However, our body’s collagen levels will eventually decrease again so a yearly maintenance Thermage treatment is recommended as part of an effective anti-aging regimen. Some ideas to make the best of your Thermage neck lift are to use plenty of sunscreen, look for antioxidant lotions, and keep yourself hydrated.

Who should get a Thermage neck lift?

A treatment of Thermage for the neck is the perfect non-invasive alternative for women who aren’t ready for cosmetic surgery but want to tighten their neck skin or manage wrinkles and spots. Thermage is not suitable for smokers, however, since tobacco will break down any new collagen production.

Who should administer a Thermage treatment?

It is important to remember that you should only get a Thermage neck lift with a board-certified cosmetic dermatologist, like Dr. de la Fuente. The neck is a very sensitive area and although Thermage is an effective technology, it can damage the skin if it isn’t properly applied. Have a private consultation with your doctor to go over your skin’s condition and the results you can expect.

What can I expect during my Thermage neck lift?

Thermage is a non-invasive cosmetic treatment, so there will be no blood or open wounds in your skin during your appointment. Typically, a skin tightening Thermage treatment for the neck will last between 20 to 45 minutes. Although this depends on a person’s resistance to pain and skin’s sensitivity; if your skin tends to get irritated easily, the doctor can administer a local anesthetic to ease the process. During your skin tightening procedure, you will feel short blasts of cold and heat. The cooling sensation is used to make the procedure more comfortable while the hot sensation means that collagen is at the right temperature for regeneration. The treatment, while uncomfortable, is tolerable and your doctor will balance the discomfort with maximum results.

Immediately after a single treatment session of Thermage neck lift, your skin will feel tighter and firmer, but the real magic begins three months after your appointment. As the new collagen strands develop, definition and contouring of your jawline will become more apparent and you will see fewer lines, sagging skin, and wrinkles, giving the skin on your neck a more youthful appearance and a more smooth texture.
