Sagging of the lower face – or jowls – and thin, wrinkled skin on the neck are two of the most dramatic signs of age and aging skin.
The appearance of aging can manifest in several ways in the neck and lower face:
Loose skin: Commonly known as “turkey neck,” this occurs as skin loses its elasticity and in cases where individuals have lost a great deal of weight. Sagging is usually most apparent along the jowl line. Treatments such as Volumizer Fillers Sculptra, Voluma, and skin tightening such as the eMatrix and CO2 can greatly improve sagginess.
Fat: A pool of fat under the chin also can cause sagging and give the appearance of bloating. KYBELLA™ is a non-surgical injectable for reducing moderate to severe fat on the upper neck, otherwise known as a “double chin.”
In time, your skin loses its full, firm, youthful appearance. Volumizers can be used to plump and lift cheeks.
SCULPTRA AESTHETIC® is a volumizer that is used to plump up the area treated, giving it volume and stimulating collagen. RADIESSE® has advanced calcium-based microsphere technology that restores volume and naturally promotes the growth of the body’s own collagen.
RESTYLANE® for nasolabial folds, for persistent hollows under the eyes, and for tear troughs.
JUVEDERM® we recommend for lip augmentation and nasolabial folds, especially for people who are receiving injections for the first time because it causes less swelling.
BELOTERO®, we recommend for very fine lines and wrinkles around the eyes, mouth and cheeks.
RADIESSE® we recommend for treating marionette lines, sunken cheeks, depressed scars, or for nasal contouring and augmentation and hands.
SCULPTRA AESTHETIC restores volume to the hollow areas of the temples, cheeks, and chin, as well as, to define the jaw line, and reduce the jowls.
