As we age, different areas of the face and neck are affected differently. Some people develop wrinkling and sun damage in their entire face and neck. Some people seem to lose facial fat, while others accumulate fat in the neck and maintain good skin tone. Others may develop more exaggerated signs of aging in their neck. The new Kybella is a great product for fat located under the skin below the chin area.
Dr. Patricia Dickerson, with great finesse, performs neck rejuvenation for patients from Centerville, Dayton, Middletown, Cincinnati, Columbus and throughout Ohio to provide dramatic, quality results and a more pleasing profile. These results are especially dramatic when combined with our other rejuvenating procedures.
Who is a candidate for neck rejuvenation?
The best candidates for neck rejuvenation are patients in good health with realistic expectations. They have good skin tone and elasticity. What conditions can be corrected and with which procedures?
- Loose, sagging skin under the chin requires tightening of the skin with a fractional laser treatment.
- Kybella is a new product for fat reduction located in the upper neck eliminating that “double chin”
- Safely, simply and effectively soften and diminish unwanted lines with Botox Cosmetic
- Fillers can rejuvenate your neck to replace the volume loss
- Tighten the tissue along the jawline and upper neck with the radiofrequency treatment, Thermage.
- We have numerous medical grade products which can improve your neck area.
During your initial consultation, Dr. Dickerson will discuss your goals for the surgery and explain your probable outcome of treatment. Your doctor will also help you decide which procedure or combination of procedures will best meet your cosmetic goals. You may be shown before and after treatment photographs of patients having similar conditions, and we will explain the treatment you can expect to receive. Before and after photographs may be taken of your neck to document the results.
