A sagging neck or neck laxity can have many contributing factors. Some of which include: reduction in skin elasticity, descending fat, sun damage, and other environmental damage. Many creams and over-the-counter products may provide some firming of the neck area, but once it reaches a certain point, professional procedures or surgery may be necessary to restore a more youthful neck. What is the best neck tightening procedure? Below are some of the most effective neck tightening treatments available at Northwest Face and Body.
If you have significant extra or sagging skin on the neck, a neck lift may be necessary to remove this skin and improve the contours of your neck. Luckily, this procedure is fairly routine and takes under two hours. It can also be combined with a facelift or other facial plastic surgery.
The loss of collagen and elastin associated with aging can impact the look of the neck. If you notice some minor changes, wrinkles, or the beginning of sagging, RF microneedling uses radiofrequency waves to tighten and microneedling to induce more collagen in the area. This can improve the look of your neck and promote a slower aging process.
Earlier on in life, you can take a proactive approach to maintain the skin on your neck. While common for the face, chemical peels can also be performed on the neck to remove dead skin, address wrinkles, and treat regular damage.
