Rita Tillim asks:
I am 65 and at this current time I am satisfied with the way I am aging...few lines, skin smooth and soft. What I don't like is my droopy neck. My friend had a neck lift but it did not come out good....she actually had problems afterwards and then regretted the procedure. What do you recommend?

If you are looking for nonsurgical solutions, ThermageÂ® is a safe, non-invasive cosmetic procedure that helps smooth, tighten and contour skin for an overall younger looking appearance. It can be used to treat sagging skin, loose jowls, lack of definition in the jaw line, sagging neck skin (â€œturkey neckâ€), wrinkles and fine lines, and lack of definition in the lips. The treatment delivers natural looking results with little to no downtime â€”on all skin colors, on and off the face, all in a single procedure. Fast and easy, you can even come in during your lunch break and return to work after! ThermageÂ® uses radiofrequency technology to heat the deep, collagen rich layers of your skin. The heat helps tighten existing collagen and stimulate the formation of new collagen, which reduces sagging, renews contours, and improves the smoothness and texture of the skinâ€™s surface. Comfort Pulse Technology, including a vibrating handpiece delivers enhanced patient comfort.
