The neck is one of the first areas to show signs of aging, and neck lines are a normal part of the aging process. They typically show up vertically or horizontally on the neck, or as sagging skin under the chin. Some of the other signs are crepiness, furrows, or crevices. Some patients also experience neck bands or loose muscles in the neck that stand out when moving the head.
Neck lines can have a variety of causes. In many cases, they’re caused by skin laxity and the breakdown of collagen that comes with aging. One of the biggest contributors to aging in the neck is neglecting skincare in the area and focusing instead on the face. In other cases, they can be caused by creasing that happens when the head and neck are kept in the same position for long periods. Finally, gravity can take a toll on the skin and muscles as you age, causing them to sag and stand out more noticeably.
Neck lines can be treated like facial lines and wrinkles. Our team can help you explore your best treatment options and create a personalized treatment package based on your goals.
Botox® is an effective option for neck bands and lines caused by creasing and muscle movements. It works by blocking movement signals in the muscles while still allowing natural movement. It can both prevent the formation of neck lines and also reduce their appearance with a quick and easy injection session.
RF (radiofrequency) microneedling is one of the most effective ways to tighten skin without downtime. Microneedling works by boosting collagen production through controlled wounding, leading to better support in the skin’s deep tissues. At the same time, radiofrequency energy generates gentle heat to contract loose skin. The result is tighter, more defined skin in the chin and neck.
One common cause of aging in the neck is neglecting skincare over many years. Many people focus on the face when applying skincare products but don’t apply them to the neck. This can cause the neck to age more visibly than the face. Our team can recommend our best professional-grade skincare products containing anti-aging ingredients to support your treatment results and prevent aging.
The best way to maintain your results from neck aging treatment is by treating it similarly to facial rejuvenation. Make sure to wear SPF 30+ on your face and neck to prevent photoaging and keep the area moisturized. It’s also best to use retinols and other anti-aging ingredients on the skin of the neck in addition to the face. Most patients benefit from an ongoing package of treatments to prevent further aging and completely treat their concerns, so our team will create a personalized treatment schedule for your needs.
