Improving Your Personal Appearance

How much time do you put into the way you look every day? While this number is different for everyone, investing some time into your appearance can really help you to go out into the world more confidently and feel better about yourself. I started going to spas and salons a few months back, and it was really nifty to see how many services they offered that could really improve my life. I decided that it would be incredible to work with other people to teach them about spas and salons, since they can make you feel renewed and refreshed.

5 Types Of Med Spa Treatments That Improve The Appearance Of Your Neck

Lena Griffin

If you don't like the appearance of your neck because it's saggy, wrinkled, or has fat pockets, treatments from a med spa might help. Loose skin on your neck can make you look older, even if your facial skin is still in good shape. The way your neck ages and stores fat is often genetic, so exercise and diet may not help. Instead, you might want to consider these med spa treatments.

1. Neck Lift

If your sagging neck is pronounced, the cosmetic doctor might recommend a neck lift. This involves making incisions so the skin can be pulled tight. The tissues under the skin may need to be freed, pulled tight, and anchored. Excess skin can then be cut away and the incisions closed. The result of a neck lift could be a more pronounced chin, a sculpted neck, and fewer wrinkles.

2. PDO Threads

PDO threads are an alternative to neck lift surgery. This med spa treatment involves pulling surgical threads under the skin to snag and pull neck skin up and to the sides. This gives the same results as a neck lift without the need for surgery. The results are immediate, and as a plus, the threads stimulate collagen so the results may last for months after the threads have dissolved.

3. Skin Tightening

A med spa usually offers different types of skin tightening procedures. The cosmetic doctor can help you choose the best treatment to tighten your loose neck skin. This might be a radiofrequency, ultrasound, or laser treatment that applies deep heat to your neck to contract skin and stimulate collagen. You'll probably need a series of treatments to get the best results.

4. Fat Removal

If you have an accumulation of fat under your chin, you may want it removed so your neck has a more sculpted look. Fat can be removed from the chin area by having injections that dissolve the fat, cool temperature treatments, or even neck liposuction. Each procedure has its pros and cons, so a doctor will help you decide what is right for you. The result is the loss of your fat pocket so your neck has a younger and more attractive shape.

5. Fillers

If wrinkles are what bother you most, your med spa doctor might recommend dermal fillers or even botulinum toxin injections. The botulinum toxin relaxes muscles in your neck, and the fillers plump up wrinkles to give your skin a smoother appearance. The results are temporary, but you can repeat the injections to maintain the appearance of your neck.
