Genesis Cosmetic Laser Center is proud to announce the EXCLUSIVE addition of the Fotona Neck and Décolleté tightening procedure.
Causes Of Aging the Neck and Décolleté Area
Sagging and wrinkled skin on and around the neck and chest area is a common cause of concern for many people. This type of sagging is usually a result of the natural aging process and years of sun exposure. As we enter middle age, our skin loses elasticity and collagen production decreases. Unfortunately, this eventually leads to increased laxity in the skin because it becomes thinner and loses elasticity. Skin cells which are damaged from sun exposure, can be permanently discolored, and will regenerate less often. Loss of skin hydration and fat volume also lead to sagging of the lower face and jowl formation.
The platysmal muscle, which once supported a firm neck, can become stretched and prominent. Factors such as genetics, weight fluctuations and exposure to harmful UV rays may accelerate the natural signs of aging for some people. Although the skin on the neck is as fragile as the skin on our faces, the neck area is often a neglected part of our daily beauty routine.
At Genesis Cosmetic Laser Center, we use the Fotona SP Dynamis laser to provide a gentle yet powerful solution for restoring elasticity and tone to the neck area. This is a non-invasive, non-ablative treatment, which reduces the appearance of sagging under the chin, neck and décolleté and helps to prevent the formation of jowls.
How Does Fotona Achieve Results?
Fotona SP Dynamis is a leading-edge laser system which is able to provide customized, patient-specific treatments. Piano Mode is the specific setting most appropriate for creating long-term skin tightening and remodeling results in this body area.
To begin the treatment, the laser is set to Piano Mode, which slowly generates heat into the subcutaneous layers of the skin in long laser pulses. This setting induces controlled thermal homogeneous bulk heating in the area to be treated. This mode utilizes the nd:YAG laser which heats the targeted tissue by increasing temperatures on the skin’s surface to 42-45C. This bulk heating, in turn, stimulates cell response activity called photothermolysis. By using Piano Mode, photothermolysis selectively damages precise, targeted tissue cells without causing any damage to surrounding tissue. This triggers the body’s natural regenerative response and new collagen formation along with increased cellular activity is stimulated. As the structural support in the skin of the neck and décolleté is improved, the skin appears firmer, and wrinkles are reduced.
These effects continue to improve over the next few months following laser skin tightening treatment, as the skin’s natural stores of collagen are gradually replenished.
Why Genesis Cosmetic Laser Center?
Genesis Cosmetic Laser Center is the EXCLUSIVE provider of Fotona NeckTight treatments in Florence and the surrounding area. The reasons that our team are able to produce such phenomenal results are trifold.
Firstly, we are utilizing the most advanced Fotona aesthetic laser.
Secondly, we have more than a decade of laser experience.
Thirdly, we are using advance proprietary treatment protocols based on the most current research to produce exceptional results.
Patients undergoing any laser treatments will first go through an in-depth consultation to ascertain if the treatment is appropriate for them. During this consultation, the patient will discuss any medical contraindications that might exclude them from the treatment, along with their expectations. Pricing will be discussed, as will the treatment process itself.
All our patients will undergo a medical clearance by our in-house physician, who will also be in the office throughout every treatment to ensure the safety and efficacy of the treatments.
How Long Do the Treatments Take?
Laser neck and décolleté lifting procedures can usually be completed in 45 minutes or less. Since the treatments are non-invasive and involve no downtime or pain, they are a quick and convenient fix to turn back the clock on one of the most visible signs of aging. Multiple sessions will be recommended to appreciate the full, cumulative benefits of this procedure.
What Are the Side Effects?
These treatments are generally well tolerated and relatively painless although some patients may experience minimal discomfort during the heating of the treatment area. A cooling devise is used to comfort and soothe the skin in between passes with the machine. Post treatment, some patients may also experience mild swelling or redness, which resolves within a few hours. In very rare cases, patients experience bruising, blistering or changes in pigmentation. We are prepared to assist the client in the management of these uncommon effects.
How Many Treatments Are Required?
The number of treatments required will depend on individual needs. People who have mild to moderate skin laxity will usually require 5-6 treatments, 3-4 weeks apart in order to achieve optimal results.
There is also a fast-track treatment option available for those who wish to accelerate results. In the fast-track option, treatments are received once per week for one month. Once the desired level of tightness in the neck area has been achieved, maintenance treatments every 6 months are recommended to prolong great results. After roughly two years, another series of treatments may be necessary to promote the growth of new collagen, which will be reabsorbed into the body over time.
Benefits Of Neck and Décolleté Tightening?
- The non-invasive nature of the treatment means no incisions, anesthesia, scars or downtime.
- Cosmetic surgery, “face lift” results without the need for surgery.
- Improved skin elasticity and suppleness.
- Jowls, lines, wrinkles, and sagging skin are diminished.
- Complexion tone and texture is rejuvenated.
- Immediate results followed by further improvement over the next few months as new collagen is produced.
How Soon Will I See Results of The Treatment?
Most patients are excited to see some immediate results. Because the treatment is designed to stimulate the natural growth of collagen, optimal results will take longer to be fully appreciated. Typically, new collagen growth will develop from 90 to 180 days after the initial treatment, at which time patients enjoy a significantly improved appearance.
Who Is a Good Candidate for Neck and Décolleté Tightening Treatment?
Laser skin tightening for the neck and décolleté area is appropriate for both men and women, of all skin types and tones. If you want tighter, toned, and resilient skin in your neck and chest area, and if you have noticed the signs of wrinkling, aging skin, you will be happy to learn more about the safe, effective options we offer. It is often the ideal treatment for those who wish to achieve dramatic results without the cost and lengthy recovery related to facelift surgery.
Generally, ideal candidates are men and women between ages 30 and 60. Patients above 60 or with extreme skin laxity may not achieve results as favorable as their younger counterparts or those with only mild to moderate skin laxity. Although this treatment is appropriate for most people, pregnant women should not receive laser skin tightening treatments. Furthermore, patients who scar easily and develop keloids, or those using acne medications should discuss the chance of adverse reactions during their consultation with one of our medical practitioners.
