The neck is one of the first parts of the body affected by age-related changes in skin tone, tightness, and texture. For millions of men and women alike, it’s here that they will first begin to notice the laxity and sagging that occurs as a result of collagen loss and the slow build-up of excess fatty tissue, with many of them eventually experiencing the dreaded double chin and turkey neck. MyEllevate in Scottsdale is an effective and long-lasting nonsurgical treatment option for this condition in both men and women.

What is MyEllevate?

MyEllevate is a non-surgical and minimally invasive neck lifting and tightening procedure with highly promising and immediately visible results. MyEllevate makes it possible to conceal and correct age-induced neck laxity, jowls, and submental fullness for up to five years. The procedure was developed by a renowned Beverly Hills plastic surgeon and uses a special suture inserted subdermally to lift and tighten sagging skin.

You’ll experience a finely sculpted and well-chiseled jawline and the disappearance of years off the face and neck for a restored youthfulness and vibrancy that has traditionally only been possible with a surgical neck lift. Results are seen immediately. MyEllevate in Phoenix can be combined with laser and other skin surface treatments to remove other signs of aging in the neck.

Benefits of MyEllevate

  • Tightens sagging neck skin
  • Defines and refines the jawline
  • Results last for up to five years
  • Tightens muscle to reduce neck banding
  • Minimally invasive nonsurgical procedure
  • Produces a smoother and more youthful neck contour
  • Works well with liposuction and other skin surface treatments
  • Surgeon-developed FDA-approved treatment back by years of success and results.
  • No recovery downtime is required (expect some limited movement and mild bruising/swelling)

What is treatment with MyEllevate In Scottsdale like?

During the 30-60 minute procedure done under local anesthesia, a series of small holes are made at strategic points in the skin of the neck to allow for the passage of a special suture that is carefully weaved through by your surgeon, pulled taught, and then tied off. With this, sagging skin tissue is lifted while the muscle bands in the neck are simultaneously tightened up for a well-defined beck contour that is freer of obvious skin laxity and submental fullness.

Am I a candidate for MyEllevate?

MyEllevate may be an ideal treatment option for younger patients, usually in their 30s to late 40s, who are looking for results similar to those of a neck lift, but who aren’t ready for or interested in having surgery. Male and female patients who fit many of the following criteria make great candidates for MyEllevate:

  • Experiencing early signs of aging
  • Hesitant about invasive surgery
  • Minimal skin laxity
  • Prominent neck muscle banding
  • Poor jawline definition and contour
  • Submental fullness
  • Ski-slope like and poorly defined neck

MyEllevate results

Immediately following treatment, you’ll see and feel a great improvement in submental fullness, skin laxity, and neck banding. (The initial tightness you also feel will subside within a few days, while your neck continues to look great.) These results will last for up to five years.

MyEllevate recovery

No downtime is required with MyEllevate in Phoenix, but patients will wear a chin strap for a few days and should expect to experience mild swelling and bruising. The neck area will also feel tight for some days after the procedure as you and your body adjust to the new layout of skin tissue. The chin strap is worn in order to limit movement, allowing the skin and the suture to settle into their ideal positions, and the tautness you feel will subside as this occurs. We will advise that you limit intense exercise and heavy lifting for two weeks.

Complementary procedures

MyEllevate can be done as a standalone procedure to produce an immediate lifting effect and tighten the submental skin for a nicely refined jawline and neck contour. In some cases, we may advise that the procedure be done in conjunction with liposuction to resolve excess fat, or with laser treatments to resolve hyperpigmentation, sun spots, textural irregularities, and other surface signs of aging. Together, these procedures can produce results that rival a surgical neck lift.
