Sagging or drooping skin in the neck and chin areas are often one of the most bothersome signs of aging for both men and women. In the past, a surgical facelift or neck lift were the only truly effective treatment options for the so-called “turkey neck.” Fortunately, however, advancements in medical technology have allowed for several non-invasive neck lift alternatives that can offer excellent results.
Injectable treatments such as fillers, BOTOX® and Kybella® are popular treatment options at the onset of sagging skin or wrinkles under the chin. These options can help to redefine your jawline, giving you a smoother and younger-looking profile without the need for surgery. The best injectable treatment or combination of treatments will depend on your specific trouble spots and goals.
Non-Surgical Skin Tightening
To address skin laxity in the neck area, non-surgical treatments like FaceTite™ and AccuTite™ are some of the most advanced options available. These neck lift alternatives use radiofrequency energy to stimulate collagen and elastin, tightening skin without surgery. Downtime after these turkey neck treatments is minimal, though some people choose to take a day or two off work to allow bruising and swelling to diminish.
You can begin to see the skin-tightening benefits of FaceTite and AccuTite within weeks of your treatment.
Neck Lift Surgery
In some cases, neck lift surgery may be the most appropriate solution to tighten very pronounced loose skin and wrinkles on your neck. Additionally, if the results of non-surgical neck lift treatments are no longer as dramatic as they used to be, a surgical option may be the best long-term solution for you.
