Based on firsthand experience, we have found effective solutions to help you tighten skin laxity and reverse others signs of aging on your neck.
What causes loose skin on your neck?
In short, the natural aging process causes loose skin on your neck. However, how you treat your skin and body can play a major role in how soon your neck begins aging.
One of the biggest influences on skin aging is photodamage. Spending time in the sun can do wonders for your body; vitamin D is your friend! On the other hand, UV radiation from sun rays isn’t as friendly.
UVA and UVB rays affect your skin at the cellular level, and over time, they begin breaking down collagen and elastin fibers. Those two structural proteins help maintain your skin’s framework and its ability to bounce back from damage. But once those fibers become more sparse, laxity, wrinkles, and fine lines make their appearance.
Whenever you skip out on SPF, you are slowly increasing the rate of photoaging. You may not notice the damage in your teens and 20s, but as you reach your late 20s and early 30s, the lack of protection begins to show. That’s why it is always important to wear zinc oxide based SPF daily, even if you’re staying indoors (UV rays can still penetrate through windows!). However, even with protection, time still catches up. At some point, everyone will face an aging neck.
While preventative care is the best care, we aren’t saying you can’t tighten your neck skin later in life. You’d be surprised just how far aesthetic treatments and skincare products have come to help you achieve the look you’re after!
At-home skin care to tighten neck skin without surgery
Reversing signs of aging on your neck starts with a great skincare routine. You could undergo all the aesthetic treatments in the world, but if your products don’t work for you, your results probably won’t last.
The great thing about neck skin is that it requires the same great ingredients as the skin on your face. That means as long as you choose high-quality products, they will work for your neck as well! Plus, your neck has fewer oil glands than your face, so it can handle heavier creams and products without causing clogged pores.
When choosing your products, you at least want to consider these three factors:
- Sun protection
- Collagen production
- Cellular turnover
☀️ Ingredients for sun protection:
- Titanium oxide
- Zinc oxide
- Vitamin C
🧴Ingredients for collagen stimulation:
- Hyaluronic acid
🧬Ingredients for cellular turnover:
- Lactic acid
- Glycolic acid
Types of Retinoids: Retinoids vs. Retinol vs. Retin-A
In addition to your normal skincare routine, we highly recommend implementing a neck cream to help promote collagen production and moisturize your skin. With regular use, neck creams can help tighten mild-to-moderate skin laxity, which improves your skin’s appearance without surgical intervention.
The importance of medical-grade products for your neck
Unlike over-the-counter products, medical-grade products combine the expertise of dermatologists and skincare specialists with the highest quality concentrated ingredients. Since these products are so uniquely formulated, they are typically only available through dermatologists or medical spas in Dallas.
Investing in medical-grade skincare products means you’re getting the purest ingredients in concentrations that actually make a difference in the long-term health of your skin. What most people don’t realize is that the vast majority of the time these products can end up costly LESS than the less effective OTC product.
Whether it is a moisturizing lotion, neck cream, or sunscreen, here are some key factors you should consider when comparing medical-grade neck and skincare products with OTC products.
Quality of Active Ingredients
Medical grade products aren’t called “medical grade” for nothing. These ingredients have spent years going through a meticulous process of discovery, development, and research to create the most effective and innovative formulations. The truth is, only scientific researchers and global skin experts take on this expensive and tedious task. And we as providers trust their expertise, experience, and research!
On the other hand, OTC product companies don’t often invest in the same level of research. In fact, sometimes these companies will “borrow” research and formulas from medical-grade skincare product companies. These products essentially depend on the groundbreaking research from medical-grade companies to understand the latest innovations in skin care.
From there, they add those ingredients to their own products at much lower concentrations. That way, OTC companies can highlight the effectiveness of the ingredients they use without emphasizing how much of said ingredients are in the products.
Concentration of Active Ingredients
Okay, let’s talk more about ingredient concentration. When learning how to tighten neck skin without surgery, the ingredients really matter. Peptides, antioxidants, retinoids, and AHAs are all great substances for your neck and skin, but if a product has a low concentration, how effective really is it?
With medical-grade products, you don’t have to worry about weak, ineffective ingredients. Since you have to purchase these products from an authorized provider, the manufacturer can create stronger formulas that create faster, more long lasting results.
Fact check: OTC products don’t require the same level of testing as medical-grade products since they come with lower concentrations. However, some OTC companies will still make claims that haven’t been clinically proven for their specific product.
Medical-grade products go through years of rigorous scientific research and testing to PROVE they aren’t just talk.
Aesthetic treatments to tighten neck skin without surgery
Minimally and noninvasive aesthetic treatments are a great way to tighten neck laxity without downtime or pain. As leaders in the aesthetic field, Spa in the City offers only the best, most effective procedures to truly upgrade the look and feel of your neck.
While there are a lot of options available, not all are created equal. To guide you on the right path, here are our two top neck rejuvenation procedures that provide great results for our Dallas clients. Of course, before making the final decision, you’ll want to speak to a professional to ensure the treatments will work best for your needs.
Ultherapy is the only FDA-approved device shown to lift the skin without surgery. This non-invasive treatment offers great results for people with mild-to-moderate skin laxity and helps rejuvenate your neck for a more youthful profile.
Through the power of ultrasound technology, Ultherapy reaches into the deep layers of your neck tissue to deliver the optimal amount of heating. As tissue heats, it stimulates collagen production, which leads to skin retraction for natural and long-lasting results.
Ultrasound technology has benefited the medical industry for decades (you’re probably aware of ultrasound for pregnancy). Since it sends sound energy beyond the skin’s surface, it has a more profound effect on the underlying causes of an aging neck. Plus, ultrasound imaging during the procedure ensures the energy hits the optimal depth for the greatest impact without damaging surrounding tissues. As a result, you get a phenomenal treatment without discomfort or downtime!
When you think of Radiesse injections, your first thought may not be to treat your neck, but we definitely think you should consider it! Skin laxity isn’t the only sign of an aging neck—you also want to target fine lines and wrinkles.
Approved by the FDA, Radiesse is an innovative anti-aging injectable that can safely and effectively soften the appearance folds and wrinkles. This one-of-a-kind treatment option can restore volume in the skin, and your neck isn’t an exception! Specifically, hyper-diluted Radiesse (thinned with saline and lidocaine to limit discomfort) transforms into a skin rejuvenating bio-stimulating agent rather than skin plumper. You can even combine your injections with Ultherapy for the ultimate neck anti-aging treatment.
