There used to be only two options if you wanted a younger looking face: accept what you had or go under the knife. Thankfully, that’s not the case anymore. New treatments can take ten to fifteen years off your neck and delay, if not totally replace, surgery and facelifts. New noninvasive and minimally invasive options have revolutionized how we approach the neck and how to regain beauty and youth.

Sagging in the neck is caused by a breakdown of collagen and elastin due to aging, genetics, smoking, and even long-term sun exposure. The best lifting and smoothing results come from a layered approach that utilizes some of the best treatments on the market.

The first thing to consider is the jaw, where loss of bone and muscle from aging causes the neck skin to sag. You can have a filler like Voluma injected at the spot where the earlobe meets the jaw. It pulls the skin up without being too dramatic, and the results are immediate. To soften prominent neck bands, Botox can be injected along the vertical muscles of the neck to create a smoother look.

Once the structure that holds up the neck has been strengthened, Ultherapy and radio frequency treatments can firm and tighten the skin. Or, you can skip the above and just have Ultherapy if you feel that you only need tighter skin. Ultherapy’s ultrasound waves go deep beneath the surface of the skin, stimulating new collagen. It takes about three months to see the results, and they can last a year or two. There is minimal downtime, which is great for busy patients who don’t have time to waste.

Exilis uses radio frequency to heat the skin and boost collagen production. For mild to moderate skin laxity, it can be used by itself. Why add on more treatments that you don’t need?  Some people report that Exilis feels like a hot stone massage. It takes about an hour but you may require up to five treatments.
