Once ignored by patients and cosmetic practitioners, neck rejuvenation is becoming popular as we all understand that anti-aging treatments take a complete body approach.
As a matter of fact, complaining of the appearance of the aging neck is becoming common when patients present for facial evaluation. Specifically, horizontal lines visible at the medial borders of the platysma muscles – known as platysmal bands, loss of skin laxity (sagging skin) and accumulation of fat in the submental area (double chin). Evaluating the skin quality is equally as important. The skin of the neck often shows similar signs of sun damage to those seen on the face, but the neck skin is thinner, making it less resilient to resurfacing efforts. Therefore, the crepey skin of the neck responds best to a combination of treatments.
There are several modalities available to address these concerns, including Polydioxanone (PDO) thread neck lift, deoxycholic acid (Kybella®) for submental fat (double chin) removal, neuromodulator injection (Botox®, Dyspot®, Xeomin®) to relax the platysma muscle, dermal fillers to fill out the neck horizontal lines and biostimulator to improve the texture of the skin.
