A new procedure promises a younger looking neck in a single treatment – without surgery!
“I’m looking forward to this procedure. I don’t want to do plastic surgery,” says Miriam. She says the wrinkling on her neck has bothered her for years. Plastic Surgeon Dr. Barry DiBernardo explains the ThermiRase procedure – heat is used to disable the nerves that constrict the neck muscles and causes prominent bands in the neck.
“I love it!” says Miriam. “I’m thrilled with the results. I look normal for my age, and that’s the effect that I want.”
Dr. DiBernardo says this procedure lies in the midline between something like Botox and a full surgical neck lift. It’s performed under local anesthetic and involves very small incisions. The cost is usually $3,500 to $4,500, and the results last longer than injectables but not as long as a full neck lift.
