The cause of neck skin laxity

The main cause of loose neck skin is aging. Losing weight can also cause this skin problem. When the skin has a lot of collagen, it becomes so firm that it can return to its original shape. With the decrease in collagen production in old age, the skin of the neck loses this ability and becomes loose and droopy. Our dermatologists usually treat sagging eyelids, lower jaw, chin, and neck.
Aging is usually not fun, no matter how much you prepare for it.

We all age, and with the reduction in collagen production and years of sun exposure, our skin can no longer look as fresh and youthful as it used to. Most people are more concerned about the aging of the face and one day they look in the mirror and notice that the skin on their neck is sagging.

Unfortunately, even if we use anti-aging serums and masks for our faces, most of us ignore the delicate and sensitive skin of the neck. Loosening of the neck skin is expected in the elderly and is difficult to prevent. Even if you take care of your neck, you cannot prevent the skin from thinning, which eventually leads to sagging and sagging skin. So what should be done to loosen the neck skin? Here is the information you need.

Nonsurgical Neck Skin Tightening is done by increasing the production of two essential proteins in the dermis, namely elastin, and collagen. These materials help the skin to return to its previous state after being stretched and maintain its firmness and cohesion. Depending on your condition, the beauty team recommends a combination of the following treatments to tighten loose neck skin.

Why use nonsurgical methods for Neck Skin Tightening?

Along with aging, the production of collagen and elastin, which are two proteins effective in the firmness and smoothness of the skin, decreases, and this will cause the skin of the face, neck, and body to loosen and sag. If you have sagging skin, nonsurgical skin tightening procedures can temporarily slow the process and give you tighter, smoother, younger-looking skin with little or no downtime.

The benefits of nonsurgical methods for treating loose neck skin

  1. They treat mild or moderate skin laxity on the face, neck, or body without surgery or scarring.
  2. Many of these treatments can be very lifting.
  3. They have a short recovery and rest period or do not need to rest.
  4. If a specialist doctor does them, they will have very few side effects.
  5. These treatments are performed in the office and often in less than 1 hour.
  6. The results will last for more than one year.
  7. Treatment methods for lax neck skin
  8. Fix neck laxity with Aptos thread.

Aptos thread lift is a minimally invasive procedure and uses temporary stitches to tighten and lift loose neck skin.

Lift with Aptos thread, in addition to lifting and tightening the loose skin of the neck, also fights aging by stimulating the body’s natural healing process and building collagen in the treated area. Using Aptos thread in the parts that have problems will make the neck skin stiff because these threads pull the skin up like a hook.

Over time, the lift with Aptos thread rejuvenates the neck tissues and improves neck skin tightening. As the sutures absorb into the neck tissue, your body’s natural healing response begins as the body naturally wants to repair the treated areas. Also, your plastic surgeon may recommend using other procedures besides the thread lift for better results.

However, the Aptos thread is adequate for most people and can be completed by combining it with other nonsurgical methods.

Removing lax neck skin with gel and filler injections

  • Filler, which can stimulate collagen production, is also suitable for loose and wrinkled neck skin. Collagen will tighten the skin over time, reducing wrinkles and sagging neck skin and leading to neck skin tightening. Sculptra® is one of these fillers. Its results will last up to two years.
  • Another treatment is Kybella® injection, which contains deoxycholic acid made naturally in the body. When it is injected into the sagging breast, it melts the fat cells and reduces the sagging.

  • Other injectable treatments can be used to complete the effect of fillers; Botox (BOTOX®) is one of these treatments. Botox injection relaxes the muscles that cause facial wrinkles and can be injected around the chin and neck to change the function of the muscles that cause sagging and wrinkling of the neck skin.

Treatment of lax neck skin with laser

Laser resurfacing is a method of rejuvenation in which a laser is used to improve the laxity of the neck skin. This can be done with the following method:

  • Ablative laser: This type of laser destroys the thin outer layer of the skin (epidermis) and heats the lower layer of the skin (dermis), which will stimulate the growth of collagen (the protein that makes the neck skin firm and cohesive). The treated area will become smoother and firmer as the epidermis heals and regrows. Types of ablative lasers include carbon dioxide laser (CO2), erbium laser, and combined systems.
  • Non-ablative (non-destructive) or optical laser: this method also stimulates collagen production. Compared to ablative laser, this method is a less invasive treatment and has a shorter recovery period, but its results are less clear.

Tightening the skin with ultrasound

In some neck skin tightening treatments, focused ultrasound energy is used that heats a certain depth of the neck skin (deeper than 5 mm) and specific areas to stimulate collagen production and make the neck skin tighter. This treatment is performed with a hand tool that sends ultrasound waves into the skin of the neck. Ultrasound technology has been used in medicine for many decades, and tightening the neck skin with ultrasound has a high percentage of safety.

This treatment is suitable for older patients looking for a mini-neck lift without surgery and for young patients who want to preserve the appearance of their neck skin and avoid sagging neck skin in the future with age.


Treatment of loose neck skin with radiofrequency (RF)

Radiofrequency (RF) energy can also be used to heat the neck skin and stimulate collagen production. Unlike ultrasound, radiofrequency (RF) targets the epidermis layer to achieve smoother and firmer skin.

Like ultrasound therapy, radiofrequency (RF) therapy is used to smooth and tighten neck skin in older patients and delay the need for lift surgery in younger patients.
