Nobody likes to be reminded of their age, but for all the anti-aging treatments that you use for your face, you may be neglecting the area that can prematurely age you the most: the neck. A youthful appearance is about more than reducing the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. For many people, it is just as important to treat the neck as it is to treat the face. At North Dallas Dermatology Associates in Dallas, TX we offer many neck firming treatments that will help you refresh the appearance of your neck.
What Is Neck Firming?
Neck firming refers to any treatment that rejuvenates the appearance of the neck, particularly treatments that correct mild, moderate, and severe skin laxity. Loose or sagging skin on the neck can often betray your age, making you appear much older than you are. Treatments to firm the neck are similar to other anti-aging treatments in that they help you temporarily halt the natural aging process.
The most common treatments for firming the neck are also treatments that are used on the face. For many patients, it is common to combine anti-aging treatments for the face with anti-aging treatments for the neck, extending the facial treatments down the neck to create a more cohesive appearance. Some common treatments that can also be used to firm the neck include:
Non-invasive treatments that use ultrasound technology, such as Ultherapy, have been proven to significantly improve the appearance of the skin on the neck. Ultherapy is a versatile treatment that can treat moderate-to-severe skin laxity as well as boosting the production of collagen beneath the skin surface.
RF treatments are frequently used all over the body to correct skin laxity and create a firmer, smoother skin appearance. RF treatments are non-invasive and safe for multiple areas of the body, including the sensitive skin of the neck. Radiofrequency treatments utilize a small amount of heat to tighten skin and stimulate collagen production.
While microneedling is most commonly used on the face, there are new systems that are designed to be used on both the face and the neck. Microneedling is a minimally invasive technique that uses tiny needles to create micro-tears in the skin in order to incite the body’s natural regenerative abilities, which turns over new skin cells and improves collagen production.
CoolSculpting is traditionally a non-invasive technique that is used to eliminate fat from the body, but recent advancements have created a CoolSculpting system that can be used on the neck. CoolSculpting on the neck can eliminate unwanted fat beneath the chin, contour the jawline, and also tighten skin on the neck.
There are also topical treatment options to firm the skin of the neck. Dermatological creams often include proteins and vitamins that provide the skin with the necessary tools to tighten skin, such as Retinols. Using neck creams to firm the skin on the neck is a good option for patients with mild skin laxity or patients who want to prevent premature aging.
