Our last post emphasized 2015 is the year of “the neck”; and for good reason! With inevitable aging comes the loss of skin’s elasticity. Sagging jowls, what we fondly refer to as “turkey neck”, can appear due to the accrual of fat deposits in the neck area. The neck is an integral component in skin rejuvenation and is an integral component in creating an aesthetically pleasing and balanced and youthful look.
Thermage, has been the go to non-surgical procedure of choice, for tightening and contouring the skin of the face and body. Thermage works via mono-polar radio frequency device. This device applies heat at a certain temperature to the outer layer of skin, ultimately penetrating to the deeper layers of skin and tissue. When heat reaches the deeper layers of skin existing collagen is stimulated and new collage production is promoted. Unfortunately, patient discomfort has been a major issue with Thermage, as heat is applied externally to reach beneath the skin’s surface.
