With the holiday season just around the corner, there’s no denying you want to look your very best. But it’s hard to feel festive when sagging skin gives you the dreaded “turkey neck” – in other words, loose jowls that hang from the neck and jawline.
Wondering why you have jowls? As we age, our bodies produce less and less collagen, which is the building block for firm skin that’s full of elasticity. Additionally, muscle tissue begins to weaken, which creates loose, sagging skin around the jawline. As gravity takes hold of loose skin, it creates a sagging effect, which results in those pesky, confidence-sapping jowls.
Keep that turkey neck where it belongs – as part of your holiday feast. At Wisconsin Vein & MediSpa in Pewaukee, WI, we have the best way to get rid of jowls.
The Jowl-Zapping Power of Radiofrequency
Radiofrequency may sound like it only belongs in a science lab – yet this electrical energy is one of the best ways to shrink sagging jowls and achieve a defined, tighter jawline. When this thermal energy is delivered to the skin, it provokes an “injury response” that makes cells produce collagen to repair the perceived injury. As a result, skin becomes tighter and firmer, making jowls a thing of the past.
At Wisconsin Vein & MediSpa, Deborah Manjoney, MD uses two types of radiofrequency devices to stimulate collagen and lift jowls:
- Exilis has a flat surface applicator that is used to warm the skin as it is moved constantly over the surface. A warm, painless sensation is felt as the skin tightens. There are no adverse after effects, so makeup can be applied immediately if desired, with return to normal activity.
- Infini delivers radiofrequency through multiple microneedles to deliver the heat energy directly into the deeper layers of the skin. A secondary effect from microneedling of the skin is resurfacing, which can minimize the appearance of wrinkles, hyperpigmentation, and even acne scars. Skin redness and needle marks visible after the treatment that fade over a few days.
In addition to radiofrequency devices, we also use light energy for skin tightening. Treatments include Near Infra Red (NIR) and Q-Switch pixel Laser to achieve the desired heating and collagen formation.
