The hands, neck and the décolletage, like the face, are difficult to conceal in everyday contact, and show the signs of ageing.
The contrast between the appearance of a rejuvenated face, and an ageing neck, cleavage and hands is often noticeable.
Aesthetic medicine can be used to improve the appearance of the neck, the décolletage and the hands.

Medical treatments for the neck and décolletage available at the Paris clinic
– MM medical neck lift
The MM lift is non-surgical neck lift which rests on 3 principal treatments :
– Botulinic toxin (‘Botox’) improves the definition of the neck muscles and the jaw line ( Nefertiti lift and platysmal cords ).
– Hyaluronic acid or tensile threads are used to improve the definition of, and plump up the jaw line.
– Erbium and YAG laser treatment to stimulate dermal synthesis.
– Hyaluronic acid injections
Hyaluronic acid can be used either as a volumising or as a hydrating agent : the latter uses very smooth forms of the acid which do not volumise the skin, but simply hydrate the skin.
– Botox injection to refine the platysmal cords
The platysmal muscle is responsible for these wrinkles.
Botox injections allow us to reduce muscular hyperactivity.
Scale of reference :
– Radiofrequency and laser treatment
Treatments to improve slackening skin (See relevant section).
– Absorbable suspension threads/ stitches
Suspension threads are an example of a type of non-surgical lifting of sagging tissue.
Thanks to small absorbable cones which are attached to the deep tissues, significant control can be achieved over the drooping tissue. (See the relevant section)
Scale of the neck skin sag :
– Laser and Flash Lamp Treatment
This is effective in the treatment of flushing, marks, lacklustre skin and to improve skin texture.
– Mesotherapy and peels
These treatments improve the firmness of the skin, stimulate the synthesis of collagen and promote greater dermal density. ( See the relevant section ).
Carbon dioxide treatment leads to a thickening of the dermis and a reorganisation of collagen clusters. It also improves the skin’s elasticity and sagging skin. ( See the relevant section ).
