Quick: What parts of the body tend to show your age first?
If you guessed the jawline and the neck, you’re absolutely right. Since these areas have thinner skin than other places on your body, the jawline and neck are often the first places that show signs of aging. Add in the fact that our jawlines and necks are constantly using preventative movements (like talking, angling the neck down to look at our smartphones, etc.), and it’s no wonder more people are wondering how to improve their jawlines and smooth their necks.
At Total Dermatology in Irvine, CA, board certified dermatologist Dr. Nissan Pilest recommends ThreadLift – a unique treatment that uses PDO absorbable sutures to provide immediate lift and improvement in the lower facial and neck regions. These sutures – the same kind used in surgical procedures – act as a type of mesh that lifts and supports the skin, helping to add support where sagging might be a problem.
In addition to providing immediate lift, the body responds by creating more collagen, which helps speed up cellular turnover for a younger, more radiant complexion. The procedure’s results can last for up to one year, making it a great long-term treatment for clients who have busy lives but still want to enjoy a younger-looking jawline and neck.
You’re an ideal candidate for the ThreadLift procedure if:
- You’re a healthy non-smoker (or have quit smoking at least three weeks before the treatment)
- You’re starting to see sagging around the jawline and neck
- You have wrinkles forming around the neck and jawline
- You’re not a candidate for a surgical solution
- You have reasonable expectations for the outcome of this treatment
