Let’s face it. You can use plenty of sunscreen, retinol, and the other things we have discussed in our beauty maintenance series, but you are still going to age. Our beauty maintenance tips series talked about a lot of things that can keep your skin looking good. But eventually you’re going to start losing support in the deeper tissues of your face and neck and things are going to sag. You know where this shows up earliest? Your neck! Today we’re going to discuss our solutions for your sagging neck.
Solution #1: Wear a scarf!
Who doesn’t like a scarf? They keep you warm and can disguise a sagging neck! But they’re not always practical.
Solution #2: Pelleve
Pelleve uses radiofrequency energy to heat the deeper layers of your skin to stimulate collagen formation. There is no downtime and minimal discomfort. Heck, I have had two treatments without any anesthesia and we all know that guys are wusses. Typically we start with one treatment a month for three months to get your collagen stimulated. Sagging necks get better when you put more collagen into them. For more, check out this link to the manufacturer’s page.
Solution #3: Precision Tx Laser Lift
The PrecisionTx Laser lift system involves using a laser to destroy fat cells and tighten your skin much more effectively than Pelleve can. It is a one-time treatment done by Dr. Schmidt in the office under local anesthesia. The results aren’t quite as good as you’ll get with a lower face and neck lift, but the recovery is much easier.

Solution #4 Lower Face and Neck Lift
This is the gold standard and has been so for thirty or more years. It’s a formal surgical procedure that requires sedation or general anesthesia. The deeper tissues of your sagging neck are lifted and re-suspended so we can be sure that they will go where we want them. Frequently we combine the surgery with some liposuction under the chin to help to sculpt the area.
Pelleve, PrecisionTx, and lower face and neck lifts are all good solutions for sagging necks. Call us for a consult or fill out the form to the right and we can figure out which procedure is the best for your budget, schedule, and neck!
