How The Smile and Body Neck Lift Works
The Smile and Body Neck Lift is a combination of one or more modalities. One modality involves a device that works by delivering deeply into the skin gradual, constant radio-frequency energy. This energy creates a heat buildup at the junction where the fat layer and skin meet. This heat modifies the collagen bundles deep in the skin resulting in contraction and, over time, the stimulation of new collagen growth resulting in tighter, firmer and younger looking skin.
The second modality uses fractional Microneedling to the layers deep in the skin. Importantly, the depth reached is just above the foundational layer normally treated during a surgical facelift procedure. The bodys own healing process is stimulated to create new collagen and the skin is lifted and tightened from the inside out.
The Smile and Body Neck Lift technique may utilize a radio-frequency device that was cleared by the FDA for the treatment of mild to moderate facial wrinkles. Clinical studies indicate that a treatment with this device is a safe and effective alternative to surgery. The FDA also cleared the Micro-needling device that will be used and tens of thousands of procedures have been performed worldwide.
The Smile and Body Neck Lift Treatment Technique
There is no preparation necessary prior to treatment though we do recommend that you arrive well hydrated. The treatment technique itself will take 30–60 minutes depending on the number of areas treated and the modality or modalities employed. To start the radio-frequency treatment technique a conductive gel will be applied to any areas to be treated. Most patients describe a sensation of deep warming when the hand piece is applied to the skin; some liken the feeling to a warm stone massage. The Micro-needling treatment may involve some minimal discomfort but this is typically resolved with topical anesthetic.
The Smile and Body Neck Lift requires no downtime; you will be able to resume your normal activities immediately. For a few hours the treated area may be mildly swollen and pink but you may cover the area with makeup immediately if you like. It is recommended that you cover the area with an SPF 30 sun block.
For many patients after one session there will be an immediate lifting effect and visible tightening. The skin will be smoother and firmer to the touch. Your results may continue to improve for six months.
Number of Sessions
As noted, many patients will see results immediately after their first sessions. Some patients choose to receive a series of 2-4 sessions so as to optimize their results. Touch up or maintenance sessions can be done at any time for long-term maintenance. Schedule your consultation appointment today with Dr. Blue.
