A lower face and neck lift is a procedure that improves the visible signs of aging on the lower part of your face and your neck. Your skin loses elasticity during the aging process, partly because your body begins to produce less collagen than when you were younger. A facelift can help correct sagging skin, improve skin tone, and make your face and neck appear more youthful again.
A neck lift can help remove fatty deposits under your chin and correct loose neck skin and excess wrinkles. Men and women seeking to get rid of a double chin or “turkey neck” and drooping jowls may benefit from a lower face and neck lift procedure.
Traditional facelifts and neck lifts require surgery with general anesthesia and a significant amount of downtime and recovery. For those who aren’t quite ready for a full-blown surgical facelift, you can choose a less invasive procedure that may produce the results you’re looking for.
Dr. Colon offers a minimally-invasive form of lower face and neck lifts as an alternative for adults who want to avoid the risks and extensive recovery time after surgery. She uses J-Plasma® technology by Bovie® Medical Corporation to perform a procedure called J-Plasty. This treatment can be done under local anesthesia.
To perform J-Plasty procedures, Dr. Colon uses a J-Plasma device which offers a unique combination of cold helium plasma and radiofrequency (RF) energy for precision treatments of loose skin around your neck and on your face. This advanced technology allows Dr. Colon to direct a controlled thermal energy to layers of skin beneath the surface. The J-Plasma device focuses the RF energy to treat only the targeted area, leaving surrounding tissue unharmed.
Because J-Plasty uses a combination of cold helium plasma and RF energy to target the lower layers of your skin, the top layer stays intact to protect the lower layers as they heal. Recovery time from J-Plasty treatment is significantly less than if you have traditional facelift and neck lift surgeries.
The procedure won’t change your appearance drastically or make you look like you’ve “had work done.” However, you can expect your facial and neck skin to appear tighter and more supple after J-Plasty treatments.
