New Procedure at Perfect Body Laser Gets Rid of 'Turkey Neck' Without Surgery

Exilis is a new procedure at Perfect Body Laser aimed at getting rid of 'turkey neck' without surgery!

Flabby, saggy skin under your neck is one of the signs of aging. But now new treatments available at Perfect Body Laser and Aesthetics can solve the problem without surgery, with Exilis.

Lynda West did a double take when it looked like her youthful face was headed south.

"I had seen some pictures of me and I was mortified to see this giant turkey neck, and I just thought it made me look really old."

But West was reluctant to schedule a surgical tuck for her jaw and neck. "You're changing the way you look, for better or worse."

Dr. Probst said there are non-evasive options. One of the NEW technologies available at Perfect Body Laser is Exilis. It focuses radio frequency energy right on the area. "If you start doing facelifts when you're in your 40s, you're pretty much guaranteeing that you will be doing them well into your 50s and 60s."

But Probst said one solution is heat. "We can actually heat the skin to tighten it and we can heat the fat to make the fat cells leaky."

Exilis has focused the heating so that the Radio Frequency also generates collagen responses, which tighten loose, wrinkled skin.

"In heated or maybe slightly altered in some way and so it needs to be replaced," said Probst.

And while heat is involved it's usually not uncomfortable.

"Clients of Perfect Body Laser describe this as a warm massage most people tend to want to just close their eyes and sit back and relax," Probst said

Most people need anywhere from one to 3 treatments depending on the desired result and severity of the affected area.
Probst said that a few treatments result in tightening that lasts years. "She may need to come back maybe once every few years for maintenance, but she is excited to do it!"

Dr Stephen Probst is a Board Certified Neuroanesthesiologist, Medical Consultant with Perfect Body Laser and Aesthetics.

Ulthera (Ultherapy) in NY - Neck and Face Lift Without Surgery

Ulthera in New York is the latest cosmetic procedure to help you look years younger without the need for surgery. This procedure is non-invasive and utilizes focused ultrasound energy to help tighten sagging skin in the face and neck.

Ulthera, also known as Ultherapy, is the latest procedure in the anti-aging and cosmetic armamentarium.
Prior to Ulthera in NY, skin tightening procedures utilized either light based or radio frequency sources to heat the skin resulting in skin tightening. There are two main differences between Ulthera (Ultherapy) and other devices such as Titan, Refirme, Thermage CPT, and Alma Accent. These devices typically work from top down, meaning they deliver heat to the skin starting from the top layer to the bottom layer of skin. However the energy often times does not penetrate the deeper layers of the skin, such as the fascia which covers the muscles. Often times, results are disappointing although some people do experience visible tightening. Second, multiple treatments are often necessary to obtain those results. Ulthera works on the deeper layers by utilizing ultrasound energy which is able to penetrate the deeper layers to effect skin tightening. Also, most clients will see a visible difference after 1 treatment. Visit for more information on the Ulthera procedure in NY as well as to schedule a complimentary consultation.

Ultherapy in NY can be used on the face and neck to treat sagging skin. It can be utilized to lift the brow, mid face and lower face and the neck region as well. Further research is currently underway and will likely demonstrate Ultherapy to be effective on other parts of the body as well such s the arms, knees, and abdomen. In addition, it may also be effective in reducing excessive sweating in the underarm region.

Ultherapy in NY can be performed in as little as 45 minutes. Everyone is a candidate including those with ethnic skin as Ulthera utilizes sound energy as opposed to light energy. Most people will experience tolerable discomfort although some people have found the treatment to be painful. Pain tolerance is individual and varies from person to person.

Following the treatment, some clients notice immediate tightening. There is little to no downtime associated with the procedures at Perfect Body Laser in New York. Some clients may experience mild redness and swelling following the procedure as well as a soreness which can last for several weeks. Optimal results can take 3 to 6 months following the procedure and improvement can continue for up to one year. The effect of the treatment is contraction of the skin as well as production of collagen. A second treatment may be performed in 3 to 6 months if additional tightening is desired. Ultherapy has a satisfaction rating of about 80% which is significant for a non-invasive device for skin tightening. It is important to have pictures taken as you may not realize the gradual improvement in skin tightening.

Ulthera in NY is the latest anti-aging device to produce skin tightening and a non-surgical face and neck lift. It is important to realize that Ulthera is not meant to replace surgery.
