Neck Lift with Skin Medical

Discover Neck Lift at the award-winning Skin Medical clinic in Northwood, London.

An ageing neck can be a clear sign of your age.

The visible signs of ageing can be difficult to come to terms with, especially the onset of ‘crepey’ skin and wrinkles on the neck. However, non-surgical treatments are available to reduce and reverse these signs, helping to prolong a youthful-looking neckline.

The neck is more likely to show signs of ageing than the face. The skin on the neck is thinner, subjected to a lifetime of movement and stretching, and is often less cared for with sun creams and moisturisers. These factors contribute to the neck appearing older and more wrinkled over time.

Non surgical neck lift is a combination of the following treatments

There are several effective ways to tighten the skin on the neck without resorting to surgery. These include:

Injectable Moisture Treatments: Treatments such as Profhilo, Restylane SkinBoosters, Teosyal Redensity 1, and Juvederm Volite encourage the skin to produce more of its own collagen and elastin. These treatments help the skin become stronger, smoother, and a little tighter.

High-Intensity Focused Ultrasound (HIFU): HIFU treatments deliver pulses of focused ultrasound energy deep into the skin to stimulate the growth of new collagen from well below the surface, resulting in tighter and firmer skin.

Radiofrequency Treatment: This treatment generates enough heat within the skin to stimulate a reaction from the collagen. The collagen shrinks slightly, inducing a small tightening effect. Additionally, the skin produces more collagen to repair itself, which helps strengthen, smooth, and firm up the skin. A course of treatments will yield the best results.

Fractional Laser Treatment: This treatment uses laser energy to regenerate the skin. The laser targets the surface of the skin, and a ‘fractional’ treatment fires the laser through a grid of fine holes. This creates microscopic channels of damage, stimulating the production of newer, fresher, stronger skin as they heal. Because there are fractions of untreated skin between these channels of damage, the skin heals more quickly than if the entire surface is affected. Multiple sessions are needed for optimal results.

Frequently Asked Questions

All of the questions you need to ask about Neck Lift

Why Does the Neck Show the Effects of Ageing?

The neck tends to show signs of ageing more quickly than the face due to several factors. The skin on the neck is thinner, making it more prone to wrinkles and folds. Additionally, there are fewer oil glands in the neck to keep the skin supple. Around menopause, the reduction in oestrogen can lead to drier skin and a loss of elasticity, further contributing to an aged appearance.

Is My Mobile Phone Having an Effect?

Devices such as phones, TVs, and computer monitors emit blue light, also known as high energy visible (HEV) light, which has the potential to age the skin similarly to UV light. This exposure can contribute to the ageing process, affecting the skin’s appearance over time.

What is the Surgical Option?

A surgical neck lift can tighten loose skin and redefine the jawline, offering a more youthful and sculpted appearance.

Are Toxins Effective on the Neck?

Some practitioners refer to the use of toxins as the ‘Nefertiti neck lift’, named after the Egyptian queen. This procedure is effective at softening tight bands of muscle that make the neck look stringy, rather than softening horizontal lines. Small quantities of toxin are injected into muscles around the neck and jaw to stop the muscles from pulling on the skin tissues, helping to maintain a more flattering shape.

What Helps with ‘Crepey’ Skin?

An ‘injectable moisture’ treatment called Profhilo places a lightweight hyaluronic acid gel into the skin. The gel spreads to cover the treated area and, because it is lightly ‘crosslinked’, it remains in the skin for 30 days. The gel hydrates the skin by holding water inside the tissues and stimulates the growth of new collagen and elastin. Two treatments, 30 days apart, are needed to see results, which become evident about eight weeks after the first treatment. The aim is to achieve stronger, firmer skin that springs back into place quickly when pinched. Some skin tightening may also be felt.

What About Home-Use Devices?

Some home-use beauty devices can improve the appearance of neck wrinkles. Success comes with frequent, recommended use. These devices are essentially lower-powered versions of the technology used by clinics. Radiofrequency energy is used to stimulate the growth of new collagen, which strengthens and tightens the skin, softening the appearance of wrinkles. Studies have shown that red and infrared light can improve skin hydration and firmness, and reduce wrinkles.

Do Edible Collagen Supplements Have a Role?

Collagen supplements are available, and manufacturers claim they can improve the firmness and elasticity of the skin. While evidence varies, some users report positive effects on their skin’s appearance.

What is ‘Crepey’ Skin?

‘Crepey’ skin refers to skin that appears thin and crinkled in texture, resembling a delicate, paper-like crepe. It tends to take on a delicate, paper-like texture, with lines becoming more pronounced when the skin is stretched or moved. This condition may also be accompanied by sagging. As we age, the production of collagen and elastin slows down, leading to skin becoming less firm and more lined. Prolonged sun exposure can further break down collagen and elastin fibres. Genetics also plays a role, and certain lifestyle factors can exacerbate the condition. For example, dehydration reduces the skin’s elasticity, and smoking negatively impacts overall skin health.
