Sculpt and Tighten Your Way to a Better Neck Before Summer

March 2, 2022

The days are getting longer and the weather is getting warmer. That can mean only one thing–summer is right around the corner. If you’re like most, you want to look and feel your best in summer clothes and swimsuits, especially the ones that reveal your neck and shoulders. 

So what’s the secret to achieving a summer-ready neckline? Great skincare and body contouring from the experts at Dermatology Consultants in Atlanta. 


Some Fat Won’t Budge 

Even if you’re strict about diet and exercise, you may have stubborn fat that refuses to disappear from your neck area. Sound familiar? The truth is, diet and exercise don’t have much of an impact on the appearance of your neck at all. In fact, for most people, the fat pocket under their chin is pretty weight-loss resistant, no matter how fit you are. 

Fortunately, there are many treatment options that can improve the overall appearance of your neck. These treatments are successful in improving the elasticity, texture, and pigment of your skin, and they help diminish the appearance of wrinkles, as well. 


How to Sculpt Neck Fat Away Without Surgery

So how do you get rid of neck fat or an annoying double chin for good? For most people, expensive cosmetic surgery that requires weeks of downtime is totally out of the question. Luckily, there are now many options that don’t require surgery at all.  

The body contouring experts at Dermatology Consultants in Atlanta can firm, tighten, and sculpt your neck the way you want it using many innovative treatments that are surgery-free and completely safe. 

Our team is highly trained and experienced in performing the following non-surgical procedures that can minimize the appearance of a double chin and remove stubborn neck fat with just a few treatments:


 Aging Skin Won’t Tighten On Its Own 

Skin noticeably starts to lose elasticity in your 30s and 40s which can lead to wrinkles and cause the skin on your face, neck, and chin to hang loosely. The good news is there are a few things you can try to increase skin elasticity. Using high-quality topical skincare products and supplements may help restore your skin’s collagen and elastin reserves. Topical treatments are a great option for improving the neck area’s texture, pigment, and elasticity, as well as diminishing the appearance of wrinkles. 

Additionally, to help improve your skin’s appearance long-term, you should always remember to:

  • Apply sunscreen on your face and neck daily
  • Get plenty of sleep
  • Exercise regularly
  • Eat a healthy diet 


How to Improve the Appearance of Neck Area Without Surgery
The reality is tightening skin can be one of the hardest things to accomplish on your own without some type of medical intervention. If you desire to reverse skin and neck aging, Dermatology Consultants offers a variety of safe, non-surgical, minimally invasive treatment options that have proven to improve the appearance of skin, diminish the lines and wrinkles, and sculpt, firm, and tighten neck and facial areas. 


Improve Skin Appearance and Minimize Wrinkles With Injectable Treatments
The following bio stimulating injectables help improve the elasticity of your skin and minimize the appearance of wrinkles specifically for the neck area: 


Nefertiti Lift Reduces the Appearance of Lines and Wrinkles
If you want to reverse the signs of aging along your lower face, jaw, and neck, you may consider a Nefertiti lift cosmetic procedure that involves several injections in the area you want to be treated. A Nefertiti lift is a cosmetic procedure performed with neuromodulators (also known as wrinkle-relaxing injections) like Dysport, Xeomin, or Botox. 

A physician will inject the neuromodulator in the lower part of your face, jaw, or neck in order to: 

  • Lessen lines around the bottom part of the face
  • Smooth dimpled skin on the chin
  • Erase or reduce folks or sagging of the lower part of the face
  • Remove neck lines
  • Create a more defined jawline


Microneedling and Lasers For a Younger-Looking Neck and Chest
Microneedling is one of the best ways to naturally restore damaged skin on the neck and chest area. Laser treatments are a great option to improve the skin’s pigment, however, chemical peels often help, as well.  

Dermatology Consultants offers the following microneedling and laser procedures that can give you the appearance of a healthier and younger-looking neck and chest:


How Many Treatments Will I Need To See Results
All of the treatments, or in many cases combinations of multiple treatments, produce excellent results. The final improvement is a cumulative endpoint of typically three treatment sessions performed over a three-month timeframe. That said, you still have time to look great and feel confident in neck-baring clothes and swimsuits this year–it’s not too late. Our board-certified dermatologists, physician’s assistants, and aestheticians can recommend the best options for restoring your youthful appearance just in time for summer.
