We know that our hands and our face can show signs of ageing but sometimes we forget to look at our neck. The neck is an area of concern to many patients and this blog will help you if you’re looking for a no-scalpel solution for that sagging skin around the neck.

In this blog I’ll be discussing non-invasive skin tightening treatments. There are more invasive ways to deal with loose skin around the neck like neck lift surgery, VASER lipo, and fat melting lipodissolve which are fat dissolving injections. These alternative methods are available at Castleknock Cosmetic Clinic Dublin to deal with excessive laxity and fat deposits around the neck.

The waddle or your turkey neck has to do with genetics, how fast does fat deposits in your neck and how your skin sag over time. There is something for everyone depending on your existing skin laxity, your desired tightness level and also how invasive you want to go. The radiofrequency skin tightening is a multipolar radiofrequency (MPRF) energy and not invasive. It utilises the power of electromagnetic energy. During the treatment a wand is passed repeatedly over the neck area causing thermal remodelling.

You can get a course of six treatments, one a week that will actually melt the fat in the skin and tighten the loose neck. As well as dissolving the fat away the skin tightening treatment increases production of new collagen and stimulates local vascularity for improved circulation. Being non-invasive it’s suitable for people on the go who want to come to the clinic in Castleknock for 30 minutes and relax, get the painless treatment and go back to their daily routine. 

With a surgical you’re going to get a very definitive, dramatic and long lasting results, but at a high cost with long downtime and not to mention scars. With the multipolar radiofrequency skin tightening you get subtle long lasting results without the downtime.
