The neck and neckline


Neck and neckline, these revealers of age!

As we grow older, our neck and neckline can start to show signs of aging. The skin on the neck becomes thinner and more delicate, making it more likely to develop wrinkles and folds than facial skin. The neckline can also change in a similar way. This area contains less collagen, which is an important protein for keeping skin firm and elastic, so it is more prone to signs of aging. That’s why it becomes more important to lift and tighten the neck as we age.

Aesthetics of the neck and neckline

As we age, the skin on our neck becomes thinner and contains less collagen compared to the skin on our face. This makes it more prone to wrinkles and sagging. Sun exposure and genetics can also contribute to the appearance of a “Give’ necklace” and redness and pigment spots on the neck and décolleté.

There are two common concerns that people have about their neck:

  1. Double Chin: This is when there is an extra layer of fat that forms under the chin. It can be caused by weight gain or genetics and aging can also contribute to loose skin.
  2. Turkey Neck: This is when the skin on the neck becomes loose and saggy, similar to the neck skin of a turkey. This can be caused by aging, weight loss, genetics, and sun damage.

Treatments for the neck and décolleté:-

It’s important to note that each of these treatments has its own benefits and limitations, and the combination of treatments will depend on the individual’s specific concerns and goals. Here are some additional details on each treatment offered at MDA:

  1. Neuromodulators: These injections can help to soften wrinkles and smooth out the appearance of the neck by relaxing the muscles responsible for creating wrinkles and sagging. The effects can last several months before needing another treatment.
  2. Microneedling: This procedure uses tiny needles to create micro-injuries in the skin, triggering the body’s natural healing process and stimulating collagen production. This can improve the texture and firmness of the skin on the neck and décolleté.
  3. Ablative Resurfacing: This laser treatment targets damaged skin cells on the surface of the skin and promotes the regeneration of healthy skin cells, resulting in smoother, more youthful-looking skin. This is a more aggressive treatment that requires some downtime for recovery.
  4. Non-ablative firming lasers: These lasers stimulate collagen production in the deeper layers of the skin without removing the top layer. They can improve the texture and firmness of the skin over time with minimal downtime.
  5. Topical creams: These can be used in conjunction with other treatments to improve skin elasticity and firmness. They may not produce dramatic results on their own, but can help to maintain the benefits of other treatments.
  6. Chin Injection: This treatment uses synthetic deoxycholic acid to dissolve and permanently remove fat cells under the chin, resulting in a slimmer and more defined jawline. It can take several treatments to achieve the desired results.
  7. Fotona TightSculpting is a non-invasive laser treatment that can be used to reduce submental fat (double chin) and tighten the skin in the neck area. It uses two different wavelengths of laser light to target the fat cells and stimulate collagen production, resulting in a slimmer and more contoured appearance. This treatment is a great option for those who want to avoid surgery or injections and have mild to moderate submental fullness.

It’s important to consult with a qualified and experienced provider to determine which treatments are right for you and create a personalized treatment plan.
