Here’s how to effectively get rid of lines and sagginess on your neck
When it comes to regular skincare, it’s not uncommon that we think of the skin on our faces. Hardly anyone thinks of extending their skincare routine to the neck. And guess what, do we have news for you! The skin on your neck is thin, much thinner than the skin on your face, and yet is still exposed to the sun (biggest age-aggravator) as much as our face is. You can imagine that in time to come, the skin on your neck will age faster and look older than the skin on your face, in the form of lines and sagginess.
#1 Skincare products
There are plenty of skincare products that focus on the neck, and you’ll usually find that these products include retinols, antioxidants and/ or ingredients to tighten the skin. Gold Oil Retinol Vitamin A Anti-aging Neck Treatment is one such product, a blend of Vitamin A and E, organic coconut oil, rosehip oil and squalane all to hydrate and plump skin while diminishing lines and sun damage.
If you’re not into purchasing additional skincare products specifically for your neck, that’s totally fine. Simply use whatever you’re using on your face and extend it to your neck area too. That includes toner, essences, serums, moisturisers and sunscreen.

When it comes to skin lifting benefits, Ulthera inevitably comes to mind. This FDA-approved ultrasound-based skin lifting treatment can be used on the face, jawline, cheeks, brows and even the neck area to effect firmer, lifted skin. What makes this treatment so effective is its ability to see below the skin and treat it with great precision so you can be sure it’s safe and with results where you need it most.
Youth Preserve using Profhilo has been traditionally used on the face area. Containing hyaluronic acid, this treatment stimulates your skin’s ability to produce collagen resulting in younger looking skin and with added radiance and glow.
This procedure has found popularity in the neck area too, and helps to minimise the appearance of crepey, wrinkly skin. Similar to the procedure done on the face, 5 points on each of the neck is injected with Profhilo where hyaluronic acid is slowly released under the skin. Over time, you’ll notice an improvement in skin quality and skin hydration.
Threadlifts have become very popular with their effectiveness in treating issues like sagging neck tissue, double-chin and turkey neck. Infinity Neck Threadlift requires fine threads to be inserted into the skin, creating an immediate lift in the treated area. The PDO threads used dissolve over six months while having stimulated collagen production to ensure that the skin continues to be lifted.
This procedure is quick and straightforward and can be done in as little as 30 minutes by an experienced doctor, with little to no downtime.
