Often, sagging in the neck what brings women into our office. And, it’s not an uncommon issue. Neck sagging is caused by a breakdown of collagen and elastin due to genetics, smoking, natural aging, and environmental factors like pollution or sun exposure.
The best results come from a tailored approach that takes into account numerous factors. The first thing to consider is the jaw, where loss of bone and muscle can lead the neck skin to sag. Consider having a filler like Voluma injected at the spot where the earlobe meets the jaw. This pulls the skin up subtly, and the results are instantaneous. Then, to smooth prominent neck bands, consider getting Botox along the vertical muscles of the neck.
Once the structure that holds up the neck has been supported, Thermage, a form of radio frequency treatment, can firm and tighten the skin.

There is minimal downtime, which is perfect for busy patients who want great results but don’t have time to wait at home for them.
