Women are seeking £7,500 treatment to stop neck skin sagging

Rise of the ‘tech neck’: Overuse of screens in lockdown means women are seeking £7,500 treatment which promises results in MINUTES to stop sagging skin by re-injecting your own fat tissue

  • Overuse of screens has caused more women to inquire about sagging neck skin
  • Patients seeking natural ‘regenerative’ treatments rather than filler or surgery
  • Dr. Olivier Amar, CMO of Uvence has revealed how the £7,500 treatment works 
  • Fat tissue is taken and stored at cryogenic preservation facility before injection

A doctor has revealed how constantly looking down at screens over lockdown has led to more women seeking a £7,500 treatment to help the appearance of sagging skin.

Dr. Olivier Amar, CMO of new cosmetic treatment company Uvence told FEMAIL that since the pandemic began, he’s seen an influx of clients requesting treatments focused on combating signs of ageing and stress around the neck. 

The Uvence procedure extracts fat tissue from a patient through liposuction, which  undergoes an extensive emulsification, distillation and purification process to create ‘Super Enriched Tissue’, or ‘biofiller’. 

The enhanced fat tissue is then re-injected into your decolletage, and Dr. Olivier claims that while the injection area will continue to repair and rejuvenate over the course of several weeks – clients can expect to see results ‘almost immediately’. 

Effects should last between six months and a year, and the £7,5000 cost includes storage of the biofiller for five years, which can be used to top up the treatment when needed.

‘Patients have been asking for a variety of treatments focused on combating signs of ageing and stress, focusing on the neck, eyes and forehead,’ he told. 

‘With regard to the neck area specifically, many patients are inquiring about non-surgical treatments to combat downward drag of skin and avoid the development of deep creases and lines in the skin.’ 

In some cases, clients  are interested in treatments such as fillers or Botox, whilst other patients are interested in more radical options such as surgical procedures like a neck lift, to actively tighten the skin around the neck and smooth out the skin. 

But according to Dr. Olivier, more and more patients are now coming to understand the potential benefits of ‘regenerative’ treatments – which work to reverse or actively combat the signs of ageing and skin decline.

He explained: ‘These regenerative treatments work by harnessing the body’s own self-repair mechanism to boost the rejuvenation of skin – the better quality skin you have, the better the overall result will be from any procedure.’

The Uvence treatment extracts a small amount of fat tissue from a patient, purifies it, and then re-injects the preserved live cells to dramatically improve the look and feel of the skin with immediate effect. 

The area of the skin which receives the injection then continues to display rejuvenate benefits over a period of several months. 

This treatment can also complement a range of other procedures, including energy device treatments such as radio frequency and lasers, and other surgical options. 

What is ‘tech neck’?  

Among some of the most popular treatments after hours of Zoom video calls were rhinoplasties, Botox and dermal fillers, to smooth out facial wrinkles and revitalise tired eyes after hours of Zoom video calls. 

Now, it appears that a new phenomenon is emerging – ‘Tech Neck’.

A phrase initially coined in the early days of the emergence of smart phones and laptops, tech neck referred to the condition of cervical kyphosis – an over-pronounced slouch due to the overuse of technology associated with neck and back pain and poor posture. 

Now though, cosmetic doctors around the world are reporting an increase in patients seeking treatment – not for their posture or neck pain, but for the appearance of their skin. 

Reports of sagging, tired skin and deep creases and stress lines around the neck are becoming more and more common, leading thousands to request surgical help to tidy up the appearance of their neck.

Amar said: ‘It’s extremely interesting to observe such a dynamic shift in the desire for specific treatments in the COVID era.

‘The phenomenon of tech neck is particularly curious – I have personally noticed a considerable increase in the number of consultations booked by patients who want to revitalise their skin around their neck, mostly due to their overuse of technology.’ 

Treatments which offer a natural, regenerative solution come with a higher price point, but Olivier claims they come with a host of benefits and long-term results. 

‘For example, a full course of Uvence treatment is £7,500’, he said, ‘However, this price tag covers the cost of the initial fat extraction, the tissue purification process, re-injections of 5 treatments, and cryo-preservation of the tissue for up to 5 years. 

‘The payment can be spread out across the 5 year process, providing patients with a long-term solution to actively repair and rejuvenate their skin and combat the signs of ageing.’ 

Likened to ‘surgery in a box’, the Uvence procedure extracts fat tissue from a patient via minimally invasive liposuction.

Then, the tissue undergoes an extensive emulsification, distillation and purification process to create ‘Super Enriched Tissue’, a fluid rich in biochemically active molecules associated with skin repair.

Once the ‘Super Enriched Tissue’ has been created, it is then stored at Uvence’s cryogenic preservation facility, ready and waiting for the patient to request a re-injection. 

When the patient requests a re-injection, Uvence transports the patient’s super enriched tissue to their desired clinic, and re-injects the fluid at the patient’s discretion, offering a fully on-demand service for skin rejuvenation. 

The ‘biofiller’ can be re-injected almost anywhere on the body, with immediate and long lasting results.

Olivier went on: ‘The treatment is 100 per cent natural, totally devoid of any foreign chemicals or synthetic substances, and is completely personalised to each individual, harnessing the regenerative benefits of each patient’s own tissue.’ 

 He claims clients can see results in minuets, or even seconds – but says it take time for the skin to repair and rejuvenate. 

‘Upon re-injection of the ‘Super Enriched Tissue’, the patient can see the results almost immediately’, he said, ‘As skin clearly appears smoother and more toned within seconds and minutes of re-injection. 

‘However, the skin around the injection area will continue to repair and rejuvenate over the course of several weeks and months, and a patient will see a consistent improvement in the quality, vibrancy and smoothness of the skin over time.’
