Neck and Décolleté Tightening
*Philosophy of Beauty is one of the top aesthetic beauty clinics in the Greater Toronto Area and your ultimate source for youthful revitalization. One of the most difficult areas to treat- the neck and décolleté area, is also our specialty.*
Causes Of Aging The Neck And Décolleté Area
*Sagging and wrinkled skin on and around the neck and chest area is a common cause of concern for many people. This type of sagging is usually a result of the natural aging process and years of sun exposure. As we enter middle age, our skin loses elasticity and collagen production decreases. Unfortunately, this eventually leads to increased laxity in the skin because it becomes thinner and loses elasticity. Skin cells which are damaged from sun exposure, can be permanently discoloured and will regenerate less often. Loss of skin hydration and fat volume also lead to sagging of the lower face and jowl formation. The platysmal muscle, which once supported a firm neck, can become stretched and prominent. Factors such as genetics, weight fluctuations and exposure to harmful UV rays may accelerate the natural signs of aging for some people. Although the skin on the neck is as fragile as the skin on our faces, the neck area is often a neglected part of our daily beauty routine. At Philosophy of Beauty, we use the Fotona SP Dynamis laser to provide a gentle yet powerful solution for restoring elasticity and tone to the neck area. This is a non-invasive, non-ablative treatment, which reduces the appearance of sagging under the chin, neck and décolleté and helps to prevent the formation of jowls.*
How Does Fotona Achieve Results?
*Fotona SP Dynamis is a leading edge, anti-aging laser system which is able to provide customized, patient-specific treatments. Piano Mode is the specific setting most appropriate for creating long-term skin tightening and remodeling results in this body area. To begin the treatment, the laser is set to Piano Mode, which slowly generates heat into the subcutaneous layers of the skin in long laser pulses. This setting induces controlled thermal homogeneous bulk heating in the area to be treated. This mode utilizes the nd:YAG laser which heats the targeted tissue by increasing temperatures on the skin’s surface to 42-45C. This bulk heating in turn stimulates cell response activity called photothermolysis. By using Piano Mode, photothermolysis selectively damages precise, targeted tissue cells without causing any damage to surrounding tissue. This triggers the body’s natural regenerative response and new collagen formation along with increased cellular activity is stimulated. As the structural support in the skin of the neck and décolleté is improved, the skin appears firmer and wrinkles are reduced. These effects continue to improve over the next few months following laser skin tightening treatment, as the skin's natural stores of collagen are gradually replenished.*
