Neck Treatments For Sagging Skin – 6 Non-Invasive Ways To Tighten Skin and Erase Wrinkles

As Tyra Banks can tell you, it’s all about the neck. If you’ve watched any of the 24 cycles of America’s Next Top Model, you know that Tyra’s pet peeve is “no-neck monster” poses. As we age and celebrate our 50th then 60th birthdays, dreams of being a model are far behind us. However, dreams of having a great neck definitely are not!

If you are considering Botox, a facelift, or another one of the anti-aging procedures offered at Qazi Cosmetic Clinic, you also might want to consider combining it with neck treatments for sagging skin. 

Can Sagging Neck Skin Be Treated?

Yes! Sagging skin on the neck is a normal part of aging. It can be treated with a few different procedures that range from simple and non-invasive to permanent and surgical. Dr. Qazi at Qazi Cosmetic Clinic recommends that patients consider Renuvion skin tightening, laser treatment, sugar threading, RF microneedling, fillers, or Botox to rejuvenate their neck. To learn which treatment option is best for you, schedule a consultation!

Qazi Cosmetic Clinic now offers safe and affordable cosmetic surgeries, which are performed by Dr. Qazi’s team of in-house plastic surgeons. If you want to opt for a more permanent solution to restore your neck, you may want to consider a surgical neck lift or neck laser liposuction. A neck lift is best for patients who have excess sagging skin on their neck – a condition which is often called a “turkey neck.” If you are unhappy with your neck because of sagging skin, then a neck lift may be right for you. 

Neck laser liposuction, on the other hand, is ideal for patients who have excess fat on their neck or under their chin. Liposuction is one of the best, safest, and most highly tested methods to remove unwanted fat. 

Surgery is not right for everyone. If you would rather receive a fast, comfortable, and affordable procedure to treat your sagging neck, Dr/ Qazi offers several options for neck treatments. 

Here are the 6 best neck treatments for sagging skin

#1 Renuvion: The Neck Firming Treatment

Renuvion is most often paired with liposuction or MicroLipo to tighten skin after fat cells are removed. This non-invasive procedure can also be used alone to reduce wrinkles, tighten sagging skin, and give you a more youthful look. 

The Renuvion device works by applying heat, energy waves, and pro helium gas under the skin. The heat and energy will cause the skin to contract while the helium gas cools the treated area.

This procedure is very popular among patients who want a natural, non-synthetic treatment option. If you are uncomfortable with toxins or foreign materials being injected into your neck, Renuvion is a great substitute. Renuvion takes advantage of the skin’s natural reaction to heat and applies skin-safe gases and energy waves to the neck. 

This neck firming treatment can also be used on other areas of the body, including the abdomen, near the knees, the lower face, the thighs, the butt, on the upper arms, and on the sides. Because Renuvion is a non-invasive treatment, you can expect minimal downtime, few risks of side effects, and no scarring.

    #2 How Laser Can Reduce Sagging Skin on the Neck

    Laser treatments are one of the most versatile and popular anti-aging treatments on the market. With so many different types of lasers, it is easy to customize the treatment to address your unique cosmetic concerns while protecting your skin. Lasers are most often used to treat melasma, dark spots, hyperpigmentation, and sun damage, but certain types of laser are also highly effective at treating wrinkles on the neck. 

    Laser treatment for wrinkles works by resurfacing the skin. This essentially means that the laser removes the top layers of wrinkled skin; this prompts the body to heal itself and to produce more collagen. Because collagen is the protein responsible for the texture and quality of the skin, more collagen means better skin. Once your skin repairs itself after the resurfacing, your wrinkles, fine lines, and sagging skin will be gone! 

    Lasers are also commonly used in liposuction procedures. Neck laser liposuction is one of the most effective ways to slim and contour the neck. The laser melts the fat cells before they are removed, which makes them easier to vacuum out. The heat from the laser can also have a skin tightening effect that is similar to Renuvion. If you do not like the appearance of your neck because of a double chin, then neck laser liposuction may be worth considering. 

    If you are interested in any kind of laser treatment, schedule a consultation with Dr. Qazi. Certain laser treatments are not safe on all skin tones; Dr. Qazi will be able to determine which laser treatments are safe for you. 

    #3 Collagen Stimulating Threads

    Also called a PDO thread lift and sugar threading, this procedure is among one of the most popular and versatile treatments offered at Qazi Cosmetic Clinic. Not only is it a great option for a non-surgical facelift, but it can also create effortless contour and dimension in the face. If you have sagging skin on your neck, a PDO thread lift is a highly effective treatment. 

    Here’s how it works: Dr. Qazi uses a small, hollow needle to inject small, collagen-stimulating threads into the skin on your neck. These threads have barbed ends and will sink into the soft tissues of the skin. Don’t worry, you won’t feel a thing during this part. Once the threads are firmly in place, Dr. Qazi will adjust and secure the threads so that they lift your sagging skin back into place. 

    Because PDO threads are made from natural sugars found in the body, they will be metabolized after 6 months. This means that you will need a follow-up appointment if you want to maintain your look. 

    PDO threads are one of the easiest and most comfortable neck treatments for sagging skin. The recovery time is very brief; you can go about the rest of your day as normal right after the procedure. Because there are no incisions, you will have no scars and minimal discomfort.

    #4 Dermal Fillers For The Neck

    Fillers are another one of those procedures that patients of all ages love. They can be used to full out the face, create greater symmetry, and fill in areas where volume was lost due to aging. Many patients in their 50s and 60s have come to Qazi Cosmetic Clinic to rejuvenate their hands with fillers. Now, Dr. Qazi also recommends fillers for the neck. 

    When you get dermal fillers, the naturally occurring hyaluronic acid will create volume in the treatment area. This can instantly reduce the appearance of wrinkles and lessen the amount of sagging skin on the neck. These results will be instantly noticeable. Like the PDO threads, fillers also stimulate collagen production, which will improve the texture of your skin over time. 

    There are several benefits to getting fillers that make them a more desirable choice as a neck treatment. One benefit is that fillers can easily be corrected or reversed altogether with an injection of hyaluronidase. This is an enzyme that will break the bonds in hyaluronic acid and allow the body to absorb the filler completely within 48 hours. Filler correction is an option if you decide that fillers aren’t right for you or if you received the treatment from an inexperienced cosmetic physician and they were improperly placed. 

    After you get fillers as part of your neck treatment, you can expect them to last 6 to 12 months before the body dissolves them. 

    #5 RF Microneedling – A Neck Wrinkle Treatment Alternative to Lasers

    RF Microneedling is a good alternative to laser treatment for patients who have darker skin tones. Whereas certain lasers are unsafe for dark skin, RF microneedling is safe and effective on all types of skin. 

    When you come to Qazi Cosmetic Clinic in Orange County, here’s what you can expect during your RF microneedling treatments. The microneedling device that Dr. Qazi uses is called the Viviace device; it is considered the gold standard in microneedling and is the best device on the market. Dr Qazi will roll the device over your neck. 

    This part of the procedure is not painful. You will be given numbing cream at the beginning of the procedure and the microneedling won’t begin until you are completely comfortable. The Vivace device makes small, targeted holes in the skin in order to deliver radiofrequency waves to the deepest layers of the skin. Both the energy waves and the strategic punctures will stimulate collagen production. 

    RF microneedling works very similarly to laser treatment: it prompts the skin to heal itself by causing safe damage to the top layer of skin. This causes the body to create new skin cells and to get rid of cosmetic concerns on its own. The new, fresh skin on your neck will be more youthful looking, brighter, and have better texture after RF microneedling. 

    Not only can neck treatments for sagging skin like this reduce wrinkles, it can also heal large pores, sun damage, dark spots, and stretch marks. 

    Most patients require around 3 sessions that are spaced 3 to 4 weeks apart to achieve their desired results. The results can last up to 6 months, depending on how well you take care of your skin.

    #6 Botox: The Quintessential Neck Firming Treatment

    Most everyone knows what Botox is. It is the content in a lot of jokes about aging and it has been around a while. However, Botox was and continues to be the crème de la crème of safe, affordable, non-invasive anti-aging procedures. 

    Botox itself is a neurotoxin that can erase fine lines, get rid of wrinkles, and rein in sagging skin. It can be used to treat everything from crow’s feet and marionette lines to excessive sweating and chronic teeth grinding

    Here’s how it works: muscle contractions in the face and neck are what cause wrinkles to form. Botox essentially paralyzes the muscles under the skin to prevent that from happening. Once the muscles stop moving, the wrinkles and fine lines go away too.

    This does not mean that you are going to end up with a frozen mannequin face that can’t make any expressions. In fact, due to modern advances in Botox research, injection strategy, and advanced training for cosmetic surgeons, the results will look completely natural and you will still be able to move your face and neck. There just won’t be any wrinkles forming when you do. 

    Dr. Qazi offers Botox as well as two alternatives, Xeomin and Dysport. Both these alternatives are also great neck treatments for sagging skin. The key difference is that they are a purified version of the neurotoxin. Some Botox users experience lessened effects with each injection because their body builds up an immunity to it. If this is happening to you, switching to another type of neurotoxin can help you maintain your results. Additionally, if you have allergy concerns, Xeomin or Dysport can be a great alternative. Because they are purified, they do not contain any additional substances that might cause an allergic reaction. 

    While Botox, Xeomin, and Dysport are more commonly used on the face, they are also perfectly safe for use on the neck. Because the neck is so mobile, it is easy to form wrinkles, lines, and loose skin with age. Botox, Dysport, or Xeomin can help! Schedule a consultation to learn which option is right for you.

      Who Is a Good Candidate For Neck Treatments?

      Neck lines and wrinkles are just a normal part of aging. It happens to everyone when the skin loses elasticity and begins to droop. Other factors like sun damage, smoking, and repeated looking down motions may speed up the formation of wrinkles on the neck. Additionally, it is normal for people to begin to lose fat beneath the skin starting at age 35. This can contribute to a hollow look in the neck, face, and hands. When volume is lost beneath the skin, it creates the appearance of excess, sagging skin.
