Neck Sagging & Wrinkles cityskinclinic


As we age, the skin on the neck loses collagen and elastin. This leads to thin and less pliable skin on the neck which gives rise to wrinkles. Loss of fat and skin thickness also leads to the appearance of neck sagging. This is further exacerbated by the shortening and loosening of the platysma muscle around the neck hence causing sagging and banding. The main neck complaint that we see at City Skin Clinic is neck sagging with visible bands as well as wrinkling of the skin.


Thankfully there are a number of treatment options for forehead wrinkles and frown lines. The first step is to ensure that you have a good skincare routine which helps hydrate, nourish and protect your skin.

Botox® Non-Surgical Neck Lift (Or Nefertiti Neck Lift) For Neck Sagging & Bands

Botox® anti-wrinkle injections are highly effective for smoothing out wrinkles and lines on the skin. Furthermore, Botox® can be injected to relax the platysma muscle as well as other muscles that pull on the neck or jawline.This procedure is known as the Botox® non-surgical neck lift or Nefertiti neck lift. The effect of this is that it lifts and sculpts the neck as well as jawline. The treatment takes 3-4 weeks to work and last for 3-4 months.

Dermal Fillers For Neck Wrinkles

If the main concern is deep lines or wrinkles on the face and a sagging jawline, then dermal fillers provide an ideal non-invasive procedure. Hyaluronic acid dermal fillers smooth put wrinkles and can also be used to sculpt the jawline and lower face and upper neck.

Professional Skin Treatments For Neck Sagging & Wrinkles

Chemical peels and collagen induction therapy can be used to smooth out wrinkles, improve texture and regenerate collagen and elastin in the skin. A course of these treatments can help tighten and firm up the neck with long-lasting results.

Frequently Asked Questions

There are many non-surgical options for tightening neck skin. The most commonly used and effective treatments available at our clinic include the Botox non-surgical neck lift either alone or in combination with hyaluronic acid dermal fillers to smooth wrinkles and additionally sculpt the lower jawline. Additionally, skin treatments like chemical peels and microneedling can help firm up and tighten loose or sagging skin in the long term. These treatments are effective if they are used in the correct situation and performed by an expert. There are however situations such as severely aged and wrinkled necks or very loose skin after massive weight loss when surgery is the only option and hence a detailed consultation is essential prior to deciding on anything.
Whilst at the moment there isn't one single cream that will tighten and firm up a sagging neck, there are many skincare options that can help. Firstly, using a regular daily and night moisturiser with hyaluronic acid will help hydrate the skin. Adding bioactive skincare ingredients like retinol and Vitamin C will also help smooth out wrinkles and improve texture. Washes and toners containing glycolic acid will also help improve neck wrinkles. Finally, clinical treatments like collagen induction therapy or laser can help tighten and firm up loose or sagging skin.
Again, this depends on the cause of the neck sagging. Usually neck bands and sagging skin are caused by or exacerbated by shortening and contraction of the Plastyma muscle. If you perform exercises that stretch this muscle then that helps to lengthen and tighten it. This can help with improve the appearance of neck bands (or turkey neck as they are less kindly known as). For a quicker and more effective solution however, Botox non-surgical neck lift is commonly preferred.
