Rejuvenation requires looking at various components that define an aging neck. The best results for neck rejuvenation can be surgical (submentoplasty); however not everyone wants the risks, downtime and potential complications of direct submentoplasty.
Botox injections in neck rejuvenation techniques are rather painless, and the instant tightening and lifting is noticed within 2 weeks of treatment. Extra care has to be put in placing the Botox injections in neck rejuvenation because of the position of the airway muscles.
In expert hands however, Botox for Neck Rejuvenation is a great addition to other treatments such as Ultherpy, Kybella injections, Coolsculpting or Theramage- all using technology to avoid surgery.
The use of Botox for neck pain has yielded a positive method in neck rejuvenation techniques.
Frequently, lasers, peels and fat loss treatments such as Kybella or Coolsculpting can be added to submentoplasty for full correction. A tight neck with fine lines, red spots, brown spots or bulging fat is not as nice as one that has all components of aging corrected.
More importantly, given the close proximity of the neck to the chest, expert dermatologists, always treat the aging chest to match the rejuvenated neck!

Microdermabrasion or Fraxel laser on the neck is an excellent solution to fine lines and wrinkles on the neck. Additionally, Botox can be added to relax the muscles that create a pull and sagging of the turkey neck. Fillers can be placed along the areas of the lines to create fullness and smoothen out the lines. Vbeam laser and Fraxel can help create a better tone and texture to the neck as well.
Botox injections can help relax the muscles of the chest. However, building collagen is a far better way to get rid of chest wrinkles. Fraxel laser and Sculptra can help build collagen and Ultherapy can help tighten the deeper tissue that creates the aged appearance of the chest.
Ultherapy is the only non-invasive procedure FDA-cleared to lift skin on the neck, under the chin, the eyebrow, and wrinkles on the décolletage. In combination with Botox and Coolsculpting, you can create a great non-surgical neck tightening effect.
If done correctly they are safe and create great results. The muscle of the neck, called the platysma, can become very thick and pull down creating a heaviness that looks aged. Injections in this area must be done superficially to avoid all the critical structures such as your vocal cords, thyroid and major vessels.
