Hence, there are a lot of other very important and very close body areas to pay attention to and not just the face. In very close proximity to our face, we have our necks, chest, and the rest of the body! Many people commit the same mistake of focusing just on their faces and ignoring everything below, including their necks! The creepy or wrinkly skin on the neck is the first sign that gives away the age. Let’s all start paying attention to the forgotten but very important body area. Head and neck are connected and must be considered as one and treated together but not necessarily with the same treatment or settings or both.

The top 5 treatments for saggy necklines and neck skin according to Dr. Anna Avaliani MD are:

o TempsureEnvi RF and TempSure Firm RF
o Genius RF Microneedling

What options does one have when creams don’t do the trick anymore? The simple answer is lasers. Now, where does one start with the best treatments or best laser treatments for neck rejuvenation?

The best treatment option depends on the age, skin quality and laxity, photodamage present, and the skin type as not all lasers are created equal. The results depend on the proper initial assessment of your skin as well as knowledge and availability of the correct laser and then the expertise to utilize it in the best way possible to give amazing results. Just FYI, Results are obtained with skills and knowledge, not lasers as lasers are simple tools. What one provider may not be able to understand or achieve, the other provider may give you the best results possible.

Who performs the treatments in Dr. Avaliani’s office? Who is the best with lasers?

Most, if not all lasers, are performed by Dr. Avaliani herself and only a few other lasers are designated and are under direct supervision and guidance of the doctor. The technician simply follows the expert instructions given.

Which laser is right for me and my neck?

It is impossible to determine this without an actual in-person consultation. The addition of virtual consultation services has helped many providers and patients to connect from a distance and be able to discuss the plan as well as to better prepare for their treatments.

The neck rejuvenation and neck tightening consultation may need to involve lasers for skin discoloration, skin texture, under skin fat, or even the saggy skin where one might need tightening.
