The neck and chest have traditionally been underserved by aesthetic physicians. This has left many who had wonderful facial treatments with a 30-year-old face on a 75-year-old neck and chest, often with a clear line at the jawline. For those who are ready, a lower face and neck lift can offer a dramatically lifted jawline, but for everyone else, treatments have been very limited. At Tahoe Medical Spa we feel that this such an important cosmetic unit that we have explored every option to maximize patient’s non-surgical results in this area.
For some time we have known that IPL (Intense Pulsed Light) and the latest generation of this - BBL (Broad Band Light) can improve browns and reds that result in uneven color in this area. New research out of Stanford University show that these treatments also dramatically slow down skin aging.
For patients bothered by vertical bands of muscle below the jawline (platysmal bands), medications which relax muscle contractions such as Botox, Dysport, and Xeomin can give a no-downtime tightening of the contours of the neck.
A small liposuction can be performed just under the chinline can help reduce small fatty deposits in candidates where these are an isolated problem. Mesotherapy is a non-surgical way to melt away the fat.
Finally, we’ve seen the most dramatic results in this area when BBL is combined with other lasers, particularly the new and very exciting Halo Hybrid Fractional Laser. This allows resurfacing to build collagen and improve texture, fine lines and wrinkles as well as sun damage and other signs of aging in a simple and safe procedure. Dr. Rebecca Gelber lectures specifically on the use of lights and lasers in this delicate area, and is widely recognized as an expert in the field.
