renowned cosmetic enhancement mecca, Harley Street.
She told the Beauty Futures Report: "The small font and glare
from [a screen] can lead to squinting for extended periods of time,"
she says. "This in turn aggravates and exacerbates any frown lines
and can be extremely problematic for the eyes.
"Scrolling through Instagram et al for prolonged periods of
time can result in increased activation in neck muscles and create
tension in the jaw."
Added Elizabeth Rimmer, skincare expert and founder
of London Professional Aesthetics: 'The pull of gravity from
downwards faces also means sagging in the lower face and neck may
start to occur earlier in life."
Dramatic developments in device technology can now make
a significant difference to many people with Turkey/Tech Necks
whose only option previously would have been a surgical neck lift.
"Like so many of the 40+ women I see every day in the clinics,
I don't like what's happening to my neck," says Suzie Hoitink RN,
owner of Clear Complexions clinics in the ACT and Sydney.
"Turkey Neck is a shocking term but it seems to be universally
understood as the skin laxity that happens to our neck as we age.
"That, combined with a general sagging of the skin on the face
gives a tired look that is the driving force behind many clients
coming to see us.
"Tightening and lifting ageing skin has been a tricky task to
date. I've spent years researching different technology that targets
this and I've used a radio frequency device, like Thermage, which
has delivered great results for our clients.
"I've now also introduced Ultraformer III ultrasound skin-
tightening system into the clinics.
"Both Thermage and Ultraformer III deliver heat energy into
the skin to stimulate collagen remodelling.
"The main difference I've noted so far is in Ultraformer's
immediate effect on the skin, the deeper penetration and shorter
"We have been trialling Ultraformer III since late 2016 and have put
it through its paces. It is able to target specific sagging areas rather than
the whole face or neck, significantly reducing the cost to the client.
"The science behind this little gem is micro and macro focused

ultrasound that precisely targets the SMAS layer in the skin -- the
layer that surgeons pull back when doing a facelift -- causing new
collagen stimulation and providing long term tightening of the skin.
Clients facial contours and fine lines show peak improvement
at 8-12 weeks and additional firming throughout the subsequent
12 months. In addition, the Ultraformer has a `wrinkle
cartridge'; a 2.0mm macro focused cartridge, that can treat
superficial wrinkles around the eyes and lips more effectively
than I have ever seen with other skin tightening technology.
"For those with mild to moderate skin laxity, a treatment a year
will absolutely do the trick, while more severe laxity may need a
second treatment at the three-month mark, then yearly after that.
"Eyes can be targeted separately and require three treatments
spaced apart every two weeks but there is no need to wear the
intraocular eye shields required for Thermage."
Ultraformer III and Thermage are also recommended as adjunct
treatments to enhance the results of surgical treatments, such as
liposuction to remove the fatty pockets of double chins.

TAKING IT ON THE CHIN
A new non-surgical solution for eliminating stubborn
sub-mental fat under the jawline
New research conducted on behalf of Allergan Medical
Aesthetics (makers of Botox and the Juvederm suite of
dermal fillers) has revealed that a double chin causes
people more concern than any other "problem" area of the face.
The sur vey, Redefine*, explored how more than 3,500
Australians (1,481 women and 2,072 men) aged 20-60 view the
rarely discussed but so-important feature of the lower face.
Redefine's results were published to coincide with the official
launch in late May of Belkyra, Allergan's ground-breaking non- surgical
injectable solution to reduce fat deposits in, firm and contour the
chin/neck, once only achievable with cosmetic surgery and/or surgical
liposuction, and more recently with advanced device technology.
While the eyes, skin and lips have long been the focus of corrective
and rejuvenative enhancement procedures, the chin/neck has emerged
as Number 1 of the Top 3 facial concerns for women and men.
And while we may not always be conscious of it, the chin has the
