The phrase “non-invasive neck rejuvenation and contouring” may sound like a mouthful, but it simply a reference to procedures such as Ultherapy and truSculpt. These types of cosmetic procedures do not involve incisions and offer an alternative to patients who are weary of surgery. Aging affects all of us, but with non-invasive neck rejuvenation, there is a technique that can give you a more youthful appearance without the need for surgery.
TruSculpt is a non-invasive fat reduction technique that uses radio frequency technology to deliver heating deep into the fat layer. During the procedure, a handheld device is held to the area to be treated. The handpiece is moved from area to area in 4-minute increments where radiofrequency energy is being pulsed into the fat layer. The entire process takes about an hour.
During the weeks following your procedure, your body will naturally remove the fat cells that were destroyed during the procedure. Patients may experience up to a 60% fat reduction in the treated area. Generally, it’s recommended that patients undergo a few treatments 4-8 weeks apart to achieve the best results.
Ultherapy is also a non-invasive treatment, but it is used to lift and tighten skin around the face and neck. Ultherapy is a 60-to-90-minute procedure that uses ultrasound energy pulsed deep under the surface of the skin to stimulate collagen growth. The new collagen lifts and tightens the skin over time for a natural-looking rejuvenation. This is a great option for patients who may not need extensive lifting or would like to avoid an invasive surgery like a necklift.
Since both of these treatments are not invasive, patients are able to immediately return to their daily activities. The relatively short duration of these treatments makes them a “lunchtime procedure” that can be performed at your convenience.
