From the Neck Up

We all want to look our best and project a youthful appearance.  Plenty of time and money are spent on improving and maintaining the skin on our face.  One area that may get neglected and will show the effects of aging – Your Neck!  Neglecting your neck leaves it more susceptible to developing wrinkles and bands over time. As a result of the aging process, many people seek cosmetic surgery to effectively reduce the signs of aging on their neck and regain a more youthful appearance.

What can be done now?

SKIN CARE – From the Neck Up!

The best “bang for your buck” is the Obagi Nu-Derm System to transform your aging skin.  Use this #1 prescription-strength, physician-dispensed skin care system on your face and neck to improve cellular skin function, reduce photo damage and minimize the signs of premature aging system.


With the fall weather upon us it’s quite easy to camouflage the signs of aging by wearing scarves, turtlenecks and necklaces.  Accessorizing won’t turn back the hands of time, but you will look great and keep your skin protected from the sun.

There are ways to restore a youthful appearance to the neck using a variety of surgical and non-surgical procedures.

Fraxel Laser – Resurfacing the skin to help restore tissue collagen thereby improving the tissue laxity.

Liposuction – An aging neck may have fat deposits that produce a double-chin. To eliminate this, liposuction can be performed that permanently removes excess fat deposits from the neck area.

Neck Lift – A neck lift rejuvenates the appearance of the neck by removing excess skin and layers of fatty tissue while tightening the underlying muscle framework that support the skin to provide a more sculpted neck.
