Countless cosmetic treatments for the face exist to give you a more youthful, pleasing appearance, but just below your face is an area often forgotten in beauty regimens—your neck. Your neck points directly to your face, and if one doesn’t match the age of the other, you can appear out of balance. This “neckvember,” give your neck some TLC with tightening, lightening, and sculpting treatments.
At Millburn Laser Center in Millburn, NJ, our board-certified dermatologists recognize that every person is unique in their physical features and aesthetic goals, so we create customized cosmetic dermatology treatment plans for each patient we see. With a comprehensive menu of services and more lasers than any practice in the area, we can combine neck rejuvenation treatments to provide the best possible results for you.
Common Signs of Aging in the Neck
No part of the body is immune to aging symptoms, your neck included. The neck is especially susceptible to sagging because the skin there is thinner and more delicate than in other places. Collagen, which helps skin stay structured, supported, and firm, slows its production as you age. Elastin and hyaluronic acid, which also help keep skin looking youthful, also decrease as you age. These changes make way for wrinkles and sagging to appear, sometimes creating what is often called a “turkey neck.” Years of sun and pollution exposure, as well as smoking, can aggravate aging symptoms and create discoloration on the skin’s surface.
Why Your Neck’s Appearance is Important
Symptoms of aging in the neck can cause your entire aesthetic to appear older than you really feel. Sagging skin can also cause you to appear heavier than you are, and the stubborn fat that gathers under the chin can add to this facade. Whatever your concerns, we at Millburn Laser Center can help address them with the safest, most effective solutions available. During your consultation at our state-of-the-art center, you can feel at ease in one of our comfortable treatment rooms where we will create a plan to help you reach your aesthetic goals.
Rejuvenate Your Neck
A great place to start on your neck rejuvenation journey is with microneedling. Microneedling works by stimulating collagen production in your skin to naturally restore youthfulness to your neck. Depending on how severe your symptoms are, one of our expert dermatologists will choose the microneedling device that is right for you. Each device can reach certain depths in your skin to treat many concerns like:
- Fine lines
- Melasma (minimize the appearance)
- Brown spots (minimize the appearance)
- Large pores
- Acne scars
A microneedling treatment can leave your skin refreshed and tightened, often immediately after your treatment. Over the next few weeks to months, your results may continue to improve.
Laser treatments can also refresh the skin on your neck. Our wide selection of lasers can target specific concerns like scars, discoloration, and more:
- Fine lines
- Pigmentation (minimize the appearance)
- Large pores
A laser treatment can take between 30-60 minutes in our Millburn, NJ office. Most patients experience 1-2 days of swelling, 2-4 days of redness, and 4-7 days of flaking. You should see noticeably clearer skin within 7-10 days.
As a final touch to your neck rejuvenation, injectable treatments can smooth away any remaining wrinkles or fine lines. Botox can treat neck wrinkles as well as the platysma bands that often appear as your age. Our dermatologists also offer Restylane dermal fillers for filling in lines in the neck. These injectables can last between 3-6 months, and we can help create a treatment calendar so you can maintain your youthful results.
At Millburn Laser Center, only board-certified doctors will ever conduct your injectable treatment, so you can trust you are receiving the highest level of expert care.
Define Your Jawline
If definition along your jawline is what you need for a more youthful, pleasing look, Coolsculpting could be the right treatment for you. Many women seek a facial contour that’s shaped like a heart or “V.” This shape helps most women achieve an appealing balance between their facial features. A sharp, defined jawline can also exude health, fitness, and youth. A beautifully-contoured jawline at any age can help express a more vibrant and youthful you.
Coolsculpting is a non-surgical treatment that treats the fat under your chin, called submental fat, to minimize the appearance of a double chin and reveal a contoured jaw. Coolsculpting uses cooling technology to freeze fat cells that your body then eliminates naturally. This treatment can also address skin laxity. If you’d like further tightening, our dermatologists can follow up your Coolsculpting treatment with a microneedling or Fraxel Dual laser treatment.
