The beauty and health of our skin is a key factor in how we look. Our skin’s texture, tone, and tightness all contribute to our overall appearance. If left untreated, loose or dull-looking skin can have a significant impact on certain areas such as the neck. This can lead to a larger aesthetic problem.
We tend to think of aging as affecting our appearance by focusing on the face and issues like wrinkles, fine lines and facial folds. These issues can be easily identified and can have a significant impact on your appearance. However, these aren’t the only problems that can make you look older. It can make a huge difference in your appearance if the skin around your neck starts to sag or form visible folds. You may also notice neck bands and fat accumulation.
These issues can be solved with a necklift. The facial rejuvenation procedure focuses on the visible signs that aging is occurring around the neck to restore your youthful, beautiful appearance.
Rejuvenate Your Neck
Microneedling is a great place to begin your neck rejuvenation journey. Microneedling stimulates collagen production to restore natural youthfulness to the neck. One of our dermatologists can help you choose the right microneedling device for your condition. To treat many issues, each device can reach certain depths within your skin.
- Fine lines
- Melasma (minimize your appearance)
- Brown spots (minimize their appearance)
- Large pores
- Acne scars
Neck Lift Options
Sometimes, only neck liposuction can solve the problem. This procedure can eliminate excess fat and is suitable for patients with tight neck skin. A mini neck lift involves tightening the skin and muscles of the neck to make it look younger.
Plastosmaplasty is an option if neck banding is a major concern. A combination neck lift is recommended for patients who are also interested in facial aging. Z-Plasty can be used to treat skin laxity.
Submental Liposuction using SAFELipo
A double chin can cause you to bow out of every photograph. An excess of fat under the chin or on the neck can cause a lack of definition and aging appearance. This excess fat can be removed by submental liposuction (we recommend SAFELipo). This double-duty treatment removes fat and provides mild skin tightening.
ThermiTIGHT and Laser Treatments
Although a neck lift may tighten your skin, it will not change its texture or color. Laser treatment might be helpful if you have damaged or discolored skin. A neck lift corrects problems beneath the skin, while a laser treatment treats the skin. Patients who do not require a lift but wish to improve their skin’s appearance and quality can perform laser treatments on their own. ThermiTIGHT can tighten the neck for mild to moderate skin laxity.
Botox and dermal fillers
Botox or dermal fillers are often used to improve the appearance neck banding, which is a horizontal and vertical line that runs across the neck. There is little downtime. Be sure to choose your provider carefully. Many delicate and sensitive structures are found in the neck. An experienced provider will know how to maximize your benefits while still preserving the functionality and integrity of the neck.
