Not all areas of the face show signs of aging uniformly. For many people, the neck is the first area they notice wrinkles and saggy skin. A neck lift can provide an alternative to a full facelift at my Los Angeles practice for patients whose facial skin still retains much of its elasticity. Even then, however, combining a neck lift with strategically targeted injectables, including fillers, can create a comprehensive facial rejuvenation without the extensive facial plastic surgery.
If you’re searching for a facial rejuvenation option that provides transformative results with a shorter recovery, consider a neck lift with injectables. This option combines 2 trusted procedures to help take years off your appearance.
What is a neck lift?
Many of us have looked in a mirror and shuddered at the appearance of our necks. The lack of definition along the jaw and neck bands can make someone appear much older than they actually are. A neck lift—also known as neck enhancement—helps create a more youthful, slender profile. Some of the most common signs of aging are sagging skin, vertical bands, and fine wrinkles along your neck. Removing this excess skin and smoothing out the texture can create instant improvements.
A neck lift is less invasive than a facelift because it doesn’t usually involve moving any deep tissue. Most patients can return to work after 1 week, requiring only over-the-counter pain medication to ease discomfort.
How do injectables work?
Although neck lifts are less invasive, injectables are the least invasive of all. They have quickly grown in popularity thanks to their low price point and consistent, flattering results.
Injectables help minimize the signs of aging and smooth out imperfections. BOTOX softens crow’s feet and frown lines by easing muscle tension. JUVÉDERM adds volume to thin lips and smile lines (nasolabial folds). Treatment sessions usually last only several minutes and you can return to work immediately if performed as standalone procedures. These options are excellent for patients who wish to improve their skin texture but don’t need full facial surgery.
What are the benefits of combining a neck lift and injectables?
Every person ages uniquely. Sometimes, you don’t need a facelift to reach your personal goals. Treating saggy neck skin and smoothing out wrinkles can have a noticeable effect on looking younger and refreshed. By treating your specific problem areas with thoughtful precision, we can create dramatic results without any unnecessary procedures.
Combining treatments also have the benefit of less recovery time. While a full facelift might require more time at home as your body heals, patients can bounce back quicker from a neck lift and injectables.
