No matter how much care and attention you’ve devoted to the skin on your face, loose skin on your neck and jowls can make you look older than your years. As we age, our skin begins to break down collagen and elastin – both of which are essential to building younger-looking skin with plenty of elasticity. When combined with sagging facial muscles, this aging process often results in the appearance of loose skin around the jawline…
Also known as the dreaded “turkey neck.”
At The Langdon Center for Laser and Cosmetic Surgery, located in Guilford, Connecticut, board-certified plastic surgeon Dr. Robert Langdon provides his clients with effective solutions to treat this loose skin. These include:
- The Precision TX Laser Face Lift: This revolutionary treatment provides all the results of a facelift – without going through an invasive surgery and extensive downtime. The Precision TX Laser helps improve both superficial wrinkling, as well as the sagging of deeper tissue. This can create long-term improvements, with results lasting anywhere from five to ten years!
After numbing the lower cheeks and neck, Dr. Langdon will make tiny skin incisions, which allows the fiber optic to deliver the laser energy to every level of skin tissue. The laser liquefies fat cells and stimulates the production of collagen and elastin, which results in instant tightening. Most clients see a smoother contour of the neck, as well as a more defined jawline.
- The ExpresS Face Lift: This innovative face-lift procedure is designed to improve the most visible signs of aging to the face and neck, all while only requiring minimal incisions around the ears and hairline. The resulting scars are inconspicuous, and recovery is significantly faster than with traditional face lift procedures. The benefits of the ExpresS Face Lift include a smoother neck, reduced jowls, contoured jawline, and a more youthful appearance.
If you’re unsure of which treatment you prefer, Dr. Langdon can help you make the best decision for your needs during your consultation.
