As you age, your body begins to stop producing collagen, hyaluronic acid, and other important structural elements that keep your skin firm and lifted. Over time, your body is not able to heal from the damages caused by daily life, and you can end up with large wrinkles and folds on your neck.
Aesthetic treatments for the neck tend to involve reducing muscle contortion and filling in sunken areas. This creates a smooth appearance and prevents further wrinkles from forming, as long as the treatments are effective. Your specialist will help you determine which treatment methods are necessary to get a natural and comfortable effect.
KYBELLA® is a unique FDA-approved treatment that actually works to remove unwanted volume from your neck. KYBELLA® is designed to remove fat cells from the space beneath your skin. Losing weight in this area through traditional methods is difficult, and normal diet and exercise don't always cause submental fullness (also known as a double chin) to go away. KYBELLA® is an injectable way to get rid of this fat deposit without requiring surgery.
BOTOX® is the world's first and most relied-upon aesthetic neurotoxin. BOTOX® works by temporarily paralyzing the muscles that are responsible for creating wrinkles and folds in your skin when you make facial expressions. Those same folds can appear on your neck, especially if you tend to passively contort that area out of stress. BOTOX® can relax your neck muscles and allow the skin to rest in a smooth and natural state. The effects of BOTOX® last roughly six months, after which time you will need to get another injection.
Jeuveau® is yet another aesthetic toxin that was designed for the forehead, but which works surprisingly well to treat wrinkles and bands on the neck. Jeuveau® offers a modern take on classic toxins and provides incredibly smooth and natural-looking results. A Jeuveau® injection will temporarily reduce the movement of your neck muscles, allowing the skin on the surface to relax and tighten back up. Jeuveau® injections are not permanent and last about four to six months.
Dysport® is a toxin that was designed to treat excessive wrinkles and folds on the forehead. However, Dysport® is so effective as a muscle relaxant that it can be used to treat neck bands, the circular wrinkles that tend to appear in the center of the neck. Dysport® is a great choice for subtle but impactful neck lifts. Noticeable results may take two or three days to appear, but the effects will last for several months before the next injection is needed.
BELOTERO BALANCE® is a filler that is designed for thin, etched-in lines. BELOTERO® is a highly effective treatment that is typically used around the lips and nasolabial folds. If there are noticeable lines or wrinkles on your neck that do not disappear when you use a toxin or standard filler, BELOTERO BALANCE® may be the perfect way to achieve the smoothness you're looking for. BELOTERO® is known for being smooth, flexible, and easily absorbed by your body after the duration of the treatment has ended.
RADIESSE® is a volumizing treatment that works well on jawline and neck folds. RADIESSE® is a dermal filler that replaces the mass lost when your skin starts to deteriorate with age. RADIESSE® also stimulates natural collagen production, ensuring that your skin will be healthy and youthful long after the gel has been absorbed by your body. RADIESSE® is a good choice for the neck because it solves the underlying problems that cause neck folds to appear in the first place.
