For the face, there are a number of non-surgical procedures you can do to improve the appearance of your neck and jowls. Skin tightening with VIORA REACTION radiofrequeuncy will tighten your skin with minimal pain and downtime, in addition, for an even greater improvement you can liposuction around the cheeks and jowls under local anesthesia. A consultation would allow us to customize your treatment plan.
Ultherapy is the gold standard of non-invasive treatment for the neck and face. Period. Why? It is precise (no guesswork as you have an image of exactly what you are treating) and it can go deeper than radiofrequency or lasers presently. In addition, only one treatment is needed in comparison to radiofrequency which requires multiple. It is uncomfortable, it sure is and I recommend getting medicated to reduce the discomfort. Results last 18-24 months for most.
Kybella in a new product that was FDA approved in 2015 that melts away fat under the chin. This can be used in addition to other treatments or by itself.
As far as minimally invasive techniques, the Silhouette Lift is available and produces significant results, although small incision is needed, thus it is not completely non-invasive. Sometime in the summer of 2015, the Silhouette soft, or Instalift, will be available that requires no stitches. Results are not nearly as pronounced as the Silhouette lift, although the less invasiveness may be attractive to many.

In addition, one can have Ulthera performed on the face and neck, if needed. This is fractionated ultrasound and has shown some very impressive results when used by skilled providers. And skin care is very important here – and should be used with any of the procedures to maintain and enhance what is being done in the office setting.
Find the right doctor, and this should not be a problem to correct in this day and age.
