A combination of techniques for a natural neck lift.
To lift and rejuvenate the neck, we subtly use several associated techniques. Tailor-made, the treatment is set up according to the specifics and needs of your skin.
To treat a sagging neck, the doctor can offer several effective techniques:
Behind this gourmet name, coating is an innovative technique specific to our clinic. It involves injecting beneath the skin a rejuvenating preparation consisting of PRP, collagen inducers and hyaluronic acid (Profhilo, Revive skin booster).
PRP from the plasma in your blood is a liquid, rich in platelets and natural growth factors. Its purpose? Stimulating fibroblasts producing collagen and elastin and activating tissue vascularization, promoting the supply of nutrients and stem cells so that the skin can regenerate.
Collagen inducers are fully absorbable molecules, most often Calcium or PCL, which will stimulate fibroblasts, actual manufacturers of collagen and elastin. The result is a mesh that will naturally redensify, firm and smooth the skin.
Hyaluronic acid is a biocompatible, hydrating, and fully absorbable gel. This natural treatment is used to fill deep and superficial wrinkles, but also to structure or lift the volumes of the cheekbones, chin, temples, lips, hands or rework the bridge of a nose.
Tensor threads are injected into the neck to tighten, lift and reposition the skin. These threads are made of a material called PDO (polydioxanone) which also consists of absorbable surgical suture threads.
There are different types:
This technique is effectively a medical facelift.
A sagging neck will be tightened, straightened, outlined.
To deeply lift the fatty layers and firm the skin in absolute respect for the integrity of the epidermis, focused ultrasound is infallible. Acting in depth on a specific area to obtain a heating effect, they act until coagulation. And this, without altering the surface skin. The deep clotting points obtained will cause them to shrink and tighten the subcutaneous tissues in about 3 months.
Stimulated by this energy, a synthesis of collagen is generated in the skin, creating, within three weeks, a targeted lifting effect.
The Ultralift lifting treatment (Ultherapy Ulthera type focused ultrasound) concentrates the energy of ultrasound on depths varying between 1.5 mm, 3 mm and 4.5 mm in order to act at the same depth as that generally targeted during a surgical lifting (4.5mm).
Focused ultrasound is commonly used for the face and any other area to be firmed, such as the neck or cleavage.
Deeper applications ranging from 8 to 13 mm under the skin make it possible to target fatty layers such as the belly, to remove fat from thickened skin (double chin, arms, buccal fat pads, belly …).
A gentle technique that consists in heating the skin evenly and in depth, up to 43 ° C. This is the temperature at which fibroblasts, actual collagen and elastin manufacturers, get to work and produce these ingredients that are treasures of youth! In 30 minutes, the skin is already smoothed, plumped up and maximizes the effects of other treatments.
Radio frequency is particularly indicated to bring a specific burst of light before a special occasion. It can also be used in a deeper and more intense way in fractional radiofrequency on needle to treat sagging skin of the body, the neck, but also active acne and its scars.
In some cases, the sagging of the neck is simply the result of an increase in volume. Indeed, fat can accumulate under the chin or around buccal fat pads, jowls. Thanks to an applicator adapted to the neck area, the area will be cooled for 1 hour to negative temperatures (between -3 ° C and-9 ° C). At these temperatures, adipocytes, fat cells, will be consumed and eliminated naturally by the body in the weeks following treatment. This will bring a more refined side to your face and bring out the mandibular line providing a clear definition between the oval and the neck.
For the double chin, there is now a new injectable product called Kybélla or Belkyra. It works by consuming the envelope of fat cells to refine the contour of the chin. Kybella, or Belkyra is composed of deoxycholic acid (contained in pancreatic juices for the digestion of fat). Kybella, or Belkyra is a less invasive cosmetic medicine solution than liposuction.
Certain muscles have a negative impact on the oval of the face and on the neck. The platysmal strings participate in the relaxation of this zone. Used with finesse, Botox now allows natural and imperceptible results. Many of us know the word “Botox”, but so many understand how it works. When injected into a muscle, Botox is a substance that limits neurotransmission and softens muscle contraction. A few days after this injection, the treated muscles relax and act more flexibly, gradually reducing expression lines, without freezing your features.
A session takes between 30 minutes and 1 hour depending on the techniques chosen to obtain the desired result.
Each session begins with a careful diagnostic examination by the doctor of the characteristics of your skin and face: sagging, wrinkles and areas to be treated. Once the diagnosis is established, the treatment is decided, the fruit of an exchange between the doctor and the patient.
Consent given, the medical assistant carries out an antiseptic cleaning of the skin and the application of an anaesthetic cream to make the treatment comfortable. Local anaesthesia can be performed according to the techniques used. The aim is to provide you with maximum comfort, always.
At the end of the treatment, the assistant systematically applies a refreshing hydrating mask with hyaluronic acid for 5 minutes, to soothe the treated skin. A restorative cream is applied with airbrush strokes. A light make-up, fixed by a protective mist, completes the session and allows the patient to continue the normal and joyful course of their day. No hiding away. The show must go on.
Side effects can possibly appear, such as bruising or a slight swelling, but remain momentary (a few days maximum), easily camouflaged with a little makeup.
This treatment can be applied to all areas of the body.
The results last between 6 and 12 months depending on metabolisms and lifestyles.
The price of a Neck Lift session is from £400.
