Is There a Solution for My Sagging Neck?

As we get older, there’s one part of our bodies that tends to betray our age: our sagging necks.

This usually happens because our necks are covered by thin, delicate skin and muscles, and over the years, the twisting and stretching we do combine with the pull of gravity to make our neck skin sag and wrinkle. The muscles underlying our skin start to detach and loosen, and you can see their edges through the skin.

Add in sun exposure, genetics, and the breakdown of collagen and elastin in our skin, and it makes for neck skin that doesn’t look as firm and tight as it once did.

What to do?

Here at Skin Med Spa, we offer several nonsurgical solutions for your sagging neck. Let’s take a look at some of them:


Kybella is an FDA-approved injectable designed to reduce the area of excess fat in your neck under your chin. It includes a synthetic form of deoxycholic acid, which helps break down fat cells so the fat can’t build up in those cells anymore. As these cells are destroyed, the neck area under your chin becomes more defined and less saggy.

truSculpt ID

TruSculpt iD®, an innovative body contouring system, uses radiofrequency energy that eliminates targeted fat cells. If fat has built up in your neck area causing it to sag, the treatment will heat the fat cells until their structure is so damaged they can no longer store fat. As the fat drains away, your skin will tighten, and your neck profile will improve.

PDO threads

PDO, or polydioxanone, threads are an innovative treatment designed to tighten and lift your skin without requiring surgery. The threads are inserted just below your skin, where they stimulate your body’s natural healing response by increasing the production of collagen and elastin. 

The result is smoother, tighter skin that is not loose and sagging anymore. Lines and wrinkles will be reduced as well, leaving your neck skin much firmer and tighter.

Botox and fillers

Botox injections can also help relax your neck muscles, which will reduce the appearance of sagging and lines in your neck skin. In addition, dermal fillers can give your neck and smoother, younger contour by filling in volume that has been lost due to sagging.

If you’re interested in exploring any of these solutions further, our team at Skin Med Spa is happy to put together a custom treatment plan for you. Just call our Downers Grove office at 630-541-8413, or use our online scheduler to book your appointment anytime.
