Non-Surgical Neck Lift
The face is not the only place that can be a telltale sign of your age. The neck area can also show signs of sagging skin and tissue, changing your appearance as you get older. Tightening and lifting the skin under the chin and in the neck area can reduce sagging, improving the jawline for a more youthful look. With Profound skin tightening, you can achieve a non-surgical neck lift that makes you appear years younger, available at Kalos Facial Plastic Surgery, LLC, in Atlanta.

The neck area is often neglected in comparison to the face. However, the same changes to the skin occur in the neck and can have a significant impact on your appearance. When the skin sags under the chin and in the neck, it can make the jawline less definitive. Wrinkles appear, and the skin can noticeably sag. Restoring elasticity and firmness to the skin can diminish the sagging appearance and give you a neckline that looks years younger. This can be obtained with the use of radio frequency (RF) energy and the advanced Profound skin tightening system we have at our clinic.
Tighten Your Loose Neck Skin
Like the skin on your face and the rest of the body, the neck skin loses elasticity as it gets older. It no longer repairs as quickly, allowing gravity to stretch and pull it down. The loss of collagen and elastin creates looser skin that sags, changing the profiles of your chin from the sagging skin on the neck. Restoring higher hyaluronic acid, collagen and elastin levels can tighten and lift the skin, making your neck area look younger, firmer and more attractive.
The Profound skin tightening treatment uses RF energy distributed to the skin through microneedling. The hand-held device contains tiny needles that penetrate the skin and deliver the RF energy to the skin in the neck at the correct levels needed to stimulate a rejuvenation response. This spurs the body to produce more hyaluronic acid, elastin and collagen to repair the skin. As the skin heals over the weeks and months after the treatment, it tightens, lifts and has increased volume, diminishing the sagging appearance.
A non-surgical neck lift using the Profound RF microneedling technique only needs to be done once for excellent results. The procedure usually takes one to two hours, depending on the area treated and the patient. Our specialist will apply a numbing agent before the procedure to reduce any discomfort when the microneedling and RF energy are applied. The area can have some swelling, redness and flaking during the healing process, with recovery lasting 5 to 7 days.
The results from Profound usually begin to appear within a few weeks after the treatment. Some patients see an improvement in the tightness and firmness of their neck and chin area in about two weeks, with maximum benefits appearing over the next several months. The results look natural because they are naturally occurring; the skin becomes tighter and lifts on its own as the collagen and elastin are restored to the skin.
