Signal your collagen

Peptides are chains of amino acids that are the building blocks of proteins within the skin. One important protein in skin is collagen, which gives the skin thickness. Peptides send a signal to prompt the formation of new collagen creating suppleness to the skin.

Soften lines & Enhance tone and texture

Once the collagen is produced, the skin is strong, plump and smooth. This enhances the appearance of fine lines, tone and texture.

Long term benefit for the skin

As we age we continue to lose collagen in our skin. It is crucial to continue to build collagen in the skin to prevent aging. Continued use of peptides topically on the skin, provides long lasting anti-aging results.

Benefits of Ultherapy for a Sagging Neck Phoenix

Benefits of Ultherapy for a Sagging Neck


Anti-wrinkle creams, moisturizers and other skin care products can help restore the face’s youthful glow. And while the face is very important, your neck is equally important in maintaining an overall youthful appearance. If your neck is beginning to sag and reveal your age, now is the time to consider a rejuvenating and uplifting procedure.

While a traditional surgical neck lift can immediately correct these signs of aging, there are alternative treatments, such as Ultherapy® that lift and tighten the skin around the neck with little to no downtime. In Scottsdale, Arizona, we focus on restoring your youthful appearance with an ideal procedure best fit for your cosmetic concerns.


Ultherapy offers natural and noticeable results without the need of downtime from surgery. During treatment, Ultherapy utilizes ultrasound energy to lift and tighten the skin on the neck. This energy works below the skin’s surface to stimulate natural collagen growth and new tissue, so you are essentially improving the skin from the inside out. In anywhere from 3 to 6 months following treatment, you’ll see an improvement in sagging, lax skin on your neck.



Patients who are considering a neck rejuvenation procedure generally seek out a variety of treatment options which can often times lead to confusion. Only a consultation with our board-certified plastic surgeon can determine which treatment or combination of treatments is ideal for you. However, if you have significant sagging skin on the neck, including bands, a neck lift may be more suitable for your concerns. Additionally, if you have mild-to-moderate loose skin, Ultherapy may be an excellent non-invasive alternative.

If you are interested in neck rejuvenation, contact Gawley Plastic Surgery today to find out which procedure will provide the best outcomes for you!

Colorescience Is Our Summer Bestie! Phoenix

Colorescience Is Our Summer Bestie!

We are obsessed with Colorescience Sunforgettable brushes and here is why. The mineral sunscreen is easy to apply, chemical free, fragrance free, and perfect for ALL skin types.

1. Brush it on!

The Sunforgettable brush is a lightweight mineral sunscreen that sits on top of the skin verses chemical sunscreens that penetrate the surface of the skin. This creates a layer of protection on top of the skin to protect against UVA and UVB rays. With safe ingredients including Titanium Dioxide, Zinc Oxide, Mica, and Iron Oxides, the product safely and gently block UV rays while providing a breathable coverage.

2. Water-resistant and Mess Free!

Living in the Arizona heat requires some serious pool time! The Sunforgettable brush is a quick application; remove the lid, pull the sleeve down, brush on! The best part is that its water-resistant for up to 80 minutes and doesn’t melt. This is a sunscreen you can leave in your car and it won’t make a disaster clean up situation later on.

3. Greasy, No Thanks!

Unlike the thick white sunscreens, this is a lightweight powder that applies nicely without giving that greasy appearance. If you have oily skin or acne this product is your new bestie! It doesn’t clog pores and doesn’t penetrate the skin causing irritation. It is also safe for children over the age of six months and won’t run into their eyes.

4. Easy to Reapply!

We all know we are supposed to reapply sunscreen every two hours throughout the day. Once you have put your makeup on, it seems crazy to rub sunscreen over the top of it a couple hours later. Sunforgettbale brush is the answer! It’s perfect to set your make up with, and is the perfect touch up throughout the day to refresh your look.
