  • Neck & Face Lift

    From around the age of thirty, our skin slowly begins to age. Skin aging is characterized by sagging skin (reduced elasticity), thin skin on the face and neck, and wrinkles. Bone and muscle mass will also decrease with age. The weakened tissue will gradually sag next to our chin (hamster cheeks).
