While the neck is not one of the most obvious areas for a face-lift, it’s still an important feature.
If you have a droopy, sagging jawline or saggy cheeks, then you may want to consider having your neck tightened up as well.
There are many effective options at your disposal if you want to get a younger, more sculpted neck—and none of these involve surgery!
How Do We Lose the Youthful V Shape in the Neck?
As we age, our necks lose their youthful V shape. The muscles in the neck become weak and saggy. Skin loses elasticity, becomes loose and crepey, and fat pads under the chin enlarge.
These changes can be prevented or reversed by regular exercise that works out these areas of your body (such as lifting weights). You may also want to consider some surgical procedures if you feel that your loss of muscle tone isn’t helping with this issue — but remember: there are risks associated with any type of surgery!
Liposuction and Neck Lift
If you’re looking to sculpt your neck without surgery, liposuction and neck lift are two options that can help.
These procedures target fat in the area of the chin, jawline and neck (the “neck”), which gives you a slimmer appearance while also helping to reduce wrinkles and sagging skin.
In addition to targeting general weight gain around your face, these procedures also work together with other non-invasive treatments such as Botox injections or chemical peels for even more dramatic results.
Cool Sculpting for the Neck
Cool Sculpting is a non-surgical procedure that uses controlled cooling to freeze fat cells. It’s FDA-cleared to treat fat below the chin, jowls, and under the neck. The treatment takes up to 90 minutes and is painless (unless you hit your head or get too cold).
It works by freezing targeted areas of your body where you’d like to lose weight—usually in between 15-30 minutes per area. As they freeze, they become stiffer than they were before treatment because they’ve been frozen solid!
The next day after this process has taken place, you’ll feel like yourself again except for feeling like someone has given themselves chickenpox with their face poking out from underneath their scarf!
Kybella (deoxycholic acid) Injection for Double Chin
Kybella is a FDA-approved injectable drug that temporarily reduces fat around your neck, chin and stomach. The drug is inserted directly into these areas at regular intervals over several visits.
How does it work?
Kybella works by blocking absorption of dietary fats into the body (deoxycholic acid), which can cause swelling and inflammation in these areas. This allows for greater blood flow to help reduce the appearance of fat deposits under your skin.
If you’re ready to take the plunge and give your neck a makeover with a magical neck wand, there are plenty of options in the world today.
But remember, it’s important to always consult with a board-certified plastic surgeon before starting any new procedure or treatment. This way, they can ensure your results will be as good—or better—than expected.
