Banish That Saggy Neck Skin Without Surgery

When it comes to skin, the harsh truth is that the most visible areas are often the first to succumb to the effects of aging, namely your face, neck, and chest. While most people spend time and energy keeping their faces youthful, a sagging neck can undo even your most ardent antiaging efforts, revealing your age to the world.

Here at ReShape LLC, we specialize in noninvasive, nonsurgical methods to restore youth and vibrancy to your skin using the latest laser technologies. Under the experienced care and guidance of Dr. Anthony Macasieb, we help our patients in Mooresville, North Carolina, tighten sagging neck skin, leaving the world to guess at their real age.

Crying fowl

A saggy neck, which is often none-too-lovingly called a “turkey neck,” develops to some degree in almost everyone as they age. That’s because several powerful forces are breaking down your skin, causing it to lose that youthful tone and firmness.

First and foremost, your skin does an excellent job over the years of shielding you from the outside world. In this role, it takes a fair amount of abuse, which shows up in myriad ways along the surface. Years of exposure to the sun’s harmful ultraviolet rays cause your skin to break down on a cellular level, and your body is unable to keep up with the damage. This leaves you with thinning, drooping tissue that isn’t as resilient as it once was.

The second force is the natural loss of collagen and elastin in your skin, which is your skin’s primary support system. After your 40s, your collagen and elastin production begin to wane, and it’s perfectly natural. For women who begin their journey through menopause, the loss is especially pronounced as their estrogen levels drop markedly.

The final blow to your skin comes with gravity, which is a force that’s hard to combat. As your skin loses elasticity and tone, it sags as it begins to succumb to the pull of gravity. Adding insult to injury, the thin layer of fat that lies beneath the surface of your skin begins to migrate downward, pooling under your chin and around the base of your neck.

The end result of all of these forces is neck skin that gradually looks more like a loose sock.

Tighten up

Traditionally, the only way to address saggy neck skin was through a surgical tightening. While effective, this method invited risk and involved considerable downtime as your tissue healed.

Today, the cosmetic field is increasingly turning to laser technology, which provides results with nary a knife in sight. Here at our practice, Dr. Macasieb reviewed the many laser systems available and settled on the TempSure™ Envi because of its accuracy and reliability.

The TempSure Envi delivers radiofrequency energy through your skin, without harming the surface area, and heats up the tissue below to stimulate a mild healing response. This response comes in the form of ramped up collagen production, which tightens the skin around your neck, restoring its form and elasticity.

After 1-3 treatments, depending on how much your skin is sagging, your body builds a new support network to hold your skin in place. This process takes a little time as your body works at its own pace, but you should expect to see gradual improvement, with optimal results 4-6 weeks after your final treatment.
