Have you ever looked in the mirror and thought, “I’ve never noticed that wrinkle before?!” For lots of women, the first signs of aging tend to show up suddenly, seemingly out of nowhere.
If you’ve spotted a few wrinkles, sagging skin or other signs of aging on your face or neck, these facial and neck rejuvenation treatments could be the solution you’re looking for.
1. Laser Skin Treatments
There are several types of laser skin treatments, each with its own set of benefits and specific uses. If you’re worried about wrinkles, Halo™ laser skin resurfacing can be a successful treatment option.
Halo works by safely and gently heating the surface layer of your skin while simultaneously penetrating to deeper layers. This process stimulates collagen production within the skin — an important protein needed for a firm, youthful-looking skin structure.
Around day 3 or 4 after your Halo treatment, you should begin to notice your skin becoming smoother. Most people are able to enjoy their full results 2 to 3 weeks after their treatment.
2. Profound® RF Skin Tightening
Halo laser skin resurfacing is commonly used for facial wrinkles, but can also be used on your neck, décolletage or backs of the hands.
Similar to laser skin treatments, Profound® RF skin tightening uses a combination of radiofrequency waves and microneedling to stimulate collagen production and the skin’s natural healing process. Profound can be an excellent anti-aging solution for wrinkles on your face and neck.
Expect to see gradual results that continue to improve over several weeks or even months after your initial treatment session. While most people see optimal results after their first Profound treatment, some may benefit from a second session scheduled a week or more after the first.
3. Double Chin Treatment
While not necessarily a problem involving wrinkles, the appearance of a double chin is a very common cosmetic concern for men and women of virtually any age.
You might find that despite eating a healthy diet and getting regular exercise, the stubborn fat under your chin just won’t go away. In this case, the best solution may be Kybella® or CoolSculpting®. Both of these treatment options are non-surgical and can offer great results.
Kybella is an injectable treatment that works by “melting” away stubborn fat cells under your chin. CoolSculpting, on the other hand, uses controlled cooling technology to freeze away exercise-resistant fat cells. The result can be a smoother, more defined jawline with fewer wrinkles and creases.
4. Injectable Wrinkle Treatments
Dermal fillers, BOTOX® and Dysport® are some of the most common anti-aging solutions for both men and women. The right type of injectable wrinkle treatment for you will depend on your specific needs and cosmetic goals.
Dermal fillers, for instance, generally work well to smooth away wrinkles and creases near your mouth, as well as plump up your cheek area and/or lips.
BOTOX and Dysport work a little differently from injectable fillers. These options are commonly used to treat wrinkles between your brows, on your forehead and in the corners of your eyes.
