The honest truth is that it’s sad to be over fifty, concludes Nora Ephron in her book about aging, I Feel Bad About My Neck.  Some days it seems as if the years will take their toll on our faces and necks, no matter what we do.  Wrinkles and sags on the neck are the most visible signs of aging for women.  Jaw lines fade and the transition from your face to your neck disappears.  To combat this “turkey neck effect”, Dermatologist Victoria A. Cirillo-Hyland, MD has helped pioneer and master an FDA-approved, revolutionary radiofrequency therapy.  It provides controlled heat to fight wrinkles and tighten skin on the neck and jaw line.

Dr. Cirillo-Hyland delivers these results via a non-invasive, effective and long-lasting process.  To see the full benefits, several treatments are needed.  Since the protocol is not surgery, there are no incisions, stitches or anesthesia.  Best of all, there is no recovery time and the treatment is gentle, virtually pain free.

The protocol uses cutting-edge radiofrequency technology to heat the dermis, your skin’s inner layer.  This targeted energy helps reorganize the cellular environment and stimulates your cells to produce new collagen.  This new collagen produces the smooth texture, elastic quality and beautiful radiance of youthful skin.  You will feel your skin grow thicker, tighter and smoother.  Treatments can be performed quickly and may be used in conjunction with other treatments such as fillers, pulsed light, and Botox® to achieve better results.

As the selected FDA trial clinical investigator for this area, Dr. Cirillo-Hyland notes that the new system is superior to earlier technologies in the treatment of skin laxity, especially on the neck.  While the Before / After pictures are impressive, the results are even more remarkable in person.  Dr. Cirillo Hyland comments, “My patients refer to it as their secret, non-surgical face and neck lift.  They get their jaw lines back!”
