With age, the skin around the neck begins to sag and wrinkle. Since a gorgeous neckline is necessary to appear attractive, many patients seek out plastic surgeons to help them with neck lifts. Surgical neck lifts have promising results, but nowadays, there are many alternatives for a non-invasive neck lift.
Treatments such as Botox, laser treatments, liposuction, ultrasound treatments such as Ulthera, and radiofrequency treatments such as suture, Thermage, or thread lifts are available. The question remains, how effective are these procedures?
Liposuction removes the superficial fat in your neck, but it does not do much to tighten skin. Hence, patients can notice an improvement in their neck contour, but it can also leave an irregular, harsh appearance.
Treatments such as Ulthera and Thermage emit waves deep into the skin’s layers. This produces a tightening effect, but the appearance is often short-lived. Moreover, it does not do anything to address the excess tissue accumulating in the neck.
When it comes to a non invasive neck lift, Minimally Invasive Non-surgical Thread (MINT) is the latest procedure that gives natural results. It uses polydioxanone (PDO), which is a safe suture material used to fixate sagging face and neck tissue.
It gives immediate results in the form of smoother necklines, higher cheekbones, a defined jawline, and softer eyebrows. Since it has a shorter recovery time and long-lasting results, MINT PDO is a great alternative to surgical neck lifts.
