As the years go by, skin naturally loses its firmness due to the body producing less elastin and collagen. Additionally, the facial muscles age and loosen up, which affects your neck skin. Gravity also plays a key role in the appearance of loose, sagging skin.
There are some preventative measures you can take to help retain skin’s elasticity. It’s important to keep in mind even when following these skin care tips, they are more effective when paired with the non-surgical procedures that we will discuss here.
- Protect your skin from sun exposure. Sunlight damages the skin. As UV rays enter skin cells, they negatively affect the skin’s growth and appearance. Using sunblock can help as can limited sun exposure, especially during late morning to midafternoon when sunlight is most intense.
- Stay hydrated. Skin is made up of three layers: the outer layer (epidermis), the underlying skin (dermis), and the subcutaneous tissue. When you stay hydrated it helps the outermost layer retain its suppleness so it looks and feels smooth and soft.
- Consider nonsurgical treatments. Over the years there have been great strides made in skin tightening procedures that effectively target sagging skin. These procedures offer the latest technology available to give you great results while minimizing healing time so your daily routine will not be affected.
3 Non-surgical Neck Tightening Options
Here are some effective procedures to help prevent neck skin from sagging and to firm up existing loose skin without surgery.
This treatment uses radio frequencies to heat the deepest layers of the skin. During this process, a natural healing response and boost in collagen occurs. Results include seeing a reduction in fine lines and skin around the neck will appear firmer after the course of treatments,
Thermage uses more heat than other skin tightening treatments and therefore is sometimes finished in just half an hour. Most patients can resume normal activities the same day.
This effective, non-invasive procedure combines two popular skin rejuvenation techniques; Micro-needling and radiofrequency energy utilizing fine micro pins that penetrate the skin and activate the dermal layer. This process results in the production of new collagen, elastin, and hyaluronic acid, which effectively work together to restore firmness and vibrancy to the skin,
Results are often immediate and become even more noticeable as the skin repairs itself with the release of collagen and elastin. This is a great option for the face and neck area.
The Tixel procedure is an innovative skin rejuvenation treatment that uses thermo-mechanical energy to stimulate skin renewal. Unlike lasers or radiofrequency treatments, Tixel harnesses controlled heat to create microchannels in the skin without causing burns or charring.
This process promotes collagen production, improving skin texture and reducing the appearance of fine lines, scars, and pigmentation. With minimal downtime and reduced discomfort compared to other resurfacing treatments, Tixel offers a promising solution for those seeking youthful, radiant skin.
