Many older men and women are dismayed by the noticeable wrinkles they have developed on the neck. Some have obvious skin sagging there even if they do not have a double chin. Loose, saggy skin in this area sometimes is referred to rather disparagingly as a turkey neck. People who want to resolve this cosmetic problem may seek a treatment known as Ultherapy for the neck that Los Angeles, CA, practitioners provide.
About the Treatment
Ultherapy is a non-invasive treatment that uses ultrasound waves to lift sagging skin and minimize the appearance of wrinkles. The heat created by the ultrasound equipment stimulates the area to produce more collagen. Collagen is more prevalent in younger individuals, and production decreases as people age.
Ultherapy for the neck in Los Angeles, CA, leads to gradual results, as the production of collagen can take a few months. This can be advantageous, as the change in appearance is not immediate and drastic. Others notice that the person looks younger and may even realize the change that is occurring, but the difference will look normal since it is so gradual.
The application of ultrasound may last for up to 90 minutes. Some patients experience a small amount of discomfort during the process. The possible side effects of slight redness and swelling dissipate within a few hours. The person can return to normal activities right away. Men and women who are hesitant about the possibility of cosmetic surgery can feel significantly more positive about this choice.
