Revolutionising Neck Rejuvenation: The Ultimate Guide to Treating Skin Laxity

Blog, Skin Treatments

Skin laxity, or loose or sagging skin, is a common concern for many people as they age. It can be caused by various factors, such as genetics, weight loss, and sun damage. The neck area is especially prone to this issue, and often shows signs of ageing before other areas on the face.

Skin laxity in the neck area can be bothersome and can contribute significantly to the appearance of ageing. Fortunately, modern aesthetics has evolved to offer several effective solutions to combat neck skin laxity by providing a neck skin lift, or “necklift”. This guide will delve into various procedures offered at Pulse Light Clinic designed as neck tightening treatments, including Thermage, HIFU, Morpheus8, Endolift, and Fotona 4D.

What is Thermage?

How Does Thermage Work?

Thermage is a non-invasive radiofrequency (RF) skin-tightening and contouring therapy. It is a popular choice for those seeking to improve the appearance of loose or sagging skin. This treatment is FDA-approved and has been used for over ten years, making it a trusted option for skin rejuvenation.

The treatment delivers radiofrequency energy deep into the skin, heating the collagen-rich layers. This heat stimulates the production of new collagen, resulting in tighter, smoother skin. Unlike other treatments, Thermage treats the surface and penetrates deep into the skin, producing more comprehensive and longer-lasting results.

How Does Thermage Help Skin Laxity?

Thermage helps with skin laxity by stimulating the body’s natural collagen production. As we age, collagen production decreases, leading to sagging and laxity. By heating the deep layers of the skin, Thermage treatment encourages the production of new collagen, resulting in firmer, tighter skin. The effects of Thermage continue to improve over time, making it an excellent option for those looking for gradual, natural-looking results.

What is HIFU?

How Does HIFU Work?

HIFU, or High-Intensity Focused Ultrasound, is a non-invasive skin tightening treatment and lifting procedure. It is an advanced technology that targets the deep structural layers of the skin, typically addressed in a surgical facelift, without disrupting the skin’s surface. HIFU is highly effective in treating mild to moderate skin laxity.

During the treatment, focused ultrasound energy is delivered deep beneath the skin at the optimal temperature for collagen regeneration. This process jumpstarts the body’s natural healing process, resulting in the production of new collagen. HIFU is a safe and precise procedure that targets specific areas, leaving the surrounding tissue undisturbed.

How Does HIFU Help Skin Laxity?

HIFU helps with skin laxity by stimulating collagen production in the deep layers of the skin. As the body ages, collagen production decreases, leading to sagging and laxity. By delivering focused ultrasound energy, HIFU treatment encourages new collagen growth, resulting in firmer, tighter skin. HIFU is an excellent option for those seeking noticeable results without surgery or downtime.

What is Morpheus8?

How Does Morpheus8 Work?

Morpheus8 is a cutting-edge fractional skin treatment that stimulates collagen production in the underlying layers of the dermis. It combines microneedling with radiofrequency technology to remodel and contour the face and body. Morpheus8 penetrates deep into the skin, targeting subdermal layers and tissue to revitalise the natural production of collagen.

Tiny microneedles penetrate the skin during the treatment, delivering radiofrequency energy to the underlying layers. This process stimulates the body’s natural healing response, producing new collagen and elastin. Morpheus skin tightening is a versatile treatment that can be customised to address many concerns, including skin laxity, wrinkles, and acne scars.

How Does Morpheus8 Help Skin Laxity?

Morpheus8 helps with skin laxity by triggering the production of collagen and elastin in the deep layers of the skin. Collagen and elastin are essential proteins that keep the skin firm, smooth, and youthful. As we age, the production of these proteins decreases, leading to sagging and laxity. Morpheus 8 tightens and firms the skin by stimulating collagen and elastin production, resulting in a more youthful appearance.

What is Endolift?

How Does Endolift Work?

Endolift is a minimally invasive laser treatment designed to tighten and lift the skin. It utilises a small optical fibre inserted beneath the skin to deliver laser energy directly to the targeted areas. This innovative treatment is highly effective in treating skin laxity in the neck, jowls, and other face and body areas. See Endolift before and after here.

During the procedure, the laser energy heats the underlying layers of the skin, stimulating collagen production. This results in tighter, firmer skin with improved elasticity. Endolift is a safe and precise treatment that produces natural-looking results with minimal downtime.

How Does Endolift Help Skin Laxity?

Endolift laser helps with skin laxity by stimulating collagen production in the deep layers of the skin. Collagen is a protein that provides structure to the skin, keeping it firm and elastic. As we age, collagen production decreases, leading to sagging and laxity. By delivering laser energy directly to the targeted areas, Endolift encourages new collagen growth, resulting in tighter, firmer skin.

What is Fotona4D?

How Does Fotona4D Work?

Fotona4D is a revolutionary laser treatment that targets multiple layers of the skin to address many concerns, including skin laxity. It utilises two types of lasers, Nd:YAG and Er:YAG, to stimulate collagen production and tighten the skin. Fotona4D is a non-invasive and painless procedure with minimal downtime.

During the treatment, the Nd:YAG laser heats the deeper layers of the skin, which stimulates collagen production. The Er:YAG laser then resurfaces the outer layer of the skin, improving texture and tone. This dual-action approach produces firmer, smoother skin and a more youthful appearance.

How Does Fotona4D Help Skin Laxity?

Fotona4D helps with skin laxity by targeting multiple layers of the skin to stimulate collagen production. Collagen is a protein that provides structure to the skin, keeping it firm and elastic. As we age, collagen production decreases, leading to sagging and laxity. By using two types of lasers to heat the deeper layers of the skin and resurface the outer layer, Fotona4D encourages the growth of new collagen, resulting in tighter, firmer skin.
