TABLE OF CONTENTS

As we age, our skin loses elasticity and tends to begin sagging, especially in our face and neck areas. This can be a source of shame or discomfort for some of us. For a long time, few understood how to get rid of a sagging neckline without surgery. However, there are now several non-surgical ways to combat this common and perfectly normal side effect of aging thanks to recent advances in cosmetic technology.

Read on to learn about the latest and most popular FDA-approved treatments and technologies for improving a sagging neck.

Radio Frequency Microneedling Treatments

Microneedling is a common procedure that involves pricing the skin with a very small needles, stimulating collagen production. Radio-frequency, on the other hand, generates heat and stimulates the epidermal layers of the skin to produce collagen. When combined, these two technologies tighten and smooth skin, making it a fantastic solution to sagging skin in the neck area.

  • Treat the face, neck, hands, and body
  • Performed in-office
  • Little to no discomfort
  • Require little to no downtime
  • Safe for all skin types
  • Results & collagen production continue to improve after treatment
  • Between 2 to 6 treatments may be recommended for best results

 

Ultrasound Technology Treatments

Ultrasound technology improves sagging neckline with high intensity sound waves to jumpstart collagen production and tighten skin. Treatments are delivered via a handheld device, which transmits the ultrasound waves through the skin’s surface. Ultrasound technology has been around for years, and is safe and effective.

  • Used to treat the brow, chin, neck, and chest
  • Ideal for younger patients who want to stop onset of sagging
  • 30 to 90 minute treatment,
  • Zero downtime after treatment
  • Results within 2 to 3 months and can last up to a year

Laser Resurfacing

CO2 Ablative Lasers are another great way and restore smooth, supple texture to the neck. Although extremely effective in reducing “crepey” skin, it doesn’t do as much lifting. There can be significant downtime after a CO2 Laser Resurfacing treatment and there is a risk of prolonged redness or discoloration when applied to the thin, sensitive areas of the skin like the neck.

Botox

Sometimes patients may want to see quicker results and/or treat the more superficial layers of the skin as soon as possible. In these cases, you may consider a combination of Botox and an energy-based treatment. Botox is noted to be effective at smoothing and tightening the neck area while energy-based skin tightening treatments help in the long-term by stimulating collagen production.

Should I get non-surgical skin tightening for my sagging neckline?

Our skin produces less and less collagen and elastin as we get older. These two proteins help our skin remain smooth and retain volume. Non-surgical skin tightening treatments like RF microneedling, ultrasound therapy, and laser resurfacing can all help stimulate collagen production, slowing down any sagging in the neck area that may be occurring and rebuilding naturally occurring proteins that support our skin.

Am I a good candidate?

If action is taken soon enough it can prevent sagging before it begins. Non-surgical skin tightening is generally best suited for patients who are experiencing mild to moderate skin laxity. You will need to consult an expert before you commit to a non-surgical solution for a sagging neckline.

Botox®

BOTOX® and Dysport are neuromodulators. These types of facial injectables target the muscles responsible for facial expressions. By temporarily blocking nerve signals, they relax these muscles, reducing the appearance of wrinkles and fine lines caused by repetitive muscle contractions.

Fillers

Cosmetic fillers offer a non-surgical way to enhance facial features and restore youthful volume. Since many visible signs of aging can be traced back to volume loss, fillers can help replace what is lost to help restore a more youthful appearance. We offer the complete line of Juvederm Fillers.

Injectables

Aesthetic injectables are minimally invasive cosmetic treatments that involve injecting various substances beneath the skin to achieve a range of aesthetic goals. They can target aspects of facial aging, addressing concerns like wrinkles and fine lines, loss of facial volume, & uneven skin texture.

CoolSculpting® Elite

CoolSculpting is a proven technology that is safe and effective. It is proven to work extremely well and rivals surgical results with little to no downtime. Cryolipolysis, or freezing fat; gently and effectively reduces unwanted fat by up to 25% or more per session. Freeze fat & tone muscle.

Laser Hair Removal

Laser hair removal is a commonly used cosmetic procedure that utilizes concentrated beams of highly focused light to eradicate hair on various parts of the body. This method targets the hair follicles, damaging them to the extent that hair is unlikely to grow in that spot again.

Laser Resurfacing

Fractional laser resurfacing is the most effective laser treatment available for wrinkle reduction. At Dermablue, we brought the best possible technology for laser resurfacing to Asheville using the CORE CO2 fractional laser. Fractional laser resurfacing is the most effective laser treatment.
