Skin Rejuvenation Blog Series Part 3: Neck & Jaw

Your neck and jaw areas are some of the first places to show signs of aging. As we get older, the skin on our chin and neck tends to:

  • Lose elasticity and collagen
  • Wrinkle and stretch
  • Become fleshy and sag
  • Develop brown spots or pigmentation

But don’t worry! The signs of aging around your neck and chin can be drastically improved through surgical procedures such as a necklift or less-invasive treatments including dermal fillers and thermage therapy.

At our Kelowna clinic, our skin specialists are able to create customized skin rejuvenation treatments to help redefine the elegant lines of the jaw and neck for a youthful, tighter and more contoured appearance.


Non-Surgical Skin Treatments For Chin & Neck Rejuvenation

For men and women who are looking for a tighter jawline and smoother neck but don’t want to undergo an invasive necklift procedure, there are many effective non-surgical skin treatments available to shed years off your appearance.

1. Dermal Fillers

As you get older, your skin tends to lose the collagen and elastin that helps shape and support it, leading to a wrinkled and sagging appearance.

Naturally-derived dermal fillers such as Belotero and Restylane can be injected safely beneath the skin to fill in any creases and lift sagging skin, making your jawline and neck appear tighter and more youthful.

Dermal fillers can be used to treat:

  • Necklace lines
  • Turkey neck
  • Jowls
  • Unwanted wrinkles or facial lines

2. Thermage

Some of the most common aging concerns involve changes to our neck and jawline including the development of ‘jowls’ and ‘turkey neck.’

Thermage is a proven and unique radiofrequency skin treatment that can drastically help improve the appearance of loose and sagging skin. It works by remodeling collagen for the overall health of your skin.

Thermage can be used to treat:

  • Turkey neck
  • Loose jowls
  • Wrinkled or sagging skin around the neck and jawline
  • Skin laxity

3. Affirm Laser Therapy

A loose neck and jawline can make you appear much older than you are which is why so many of our Kelowna patients seek effective skin treatments to make the skin on their neck/chin firmer, tighter and more youthful.

Using state-of-the-art fractional laser technology, this skin treatment promotes the production of collagen and works to tighten skin and reduce wrinkles with almost no downtime.

Affirm laser can be used to:

  • Eliminate areas of pigmentation
  • Tighten skin
  • Improve skin tone and texture
  • Improve appearance of fine lines and wrinkles

Necklifts for Sagging Neck & Chin

While treating the neck and jaw is one of the most difficult aspects of facial plastic surgery, working with a board-certified plastic surgeon can ensure you get safe and excellent results and avoid a pulled, tight look.

What is a necklift?

A necklift, or lower rhytidectomy, is a surgical cosmetic procedure designed to improve the signs of aging in the jawline and neck.

What can a necklift achieve?

A necklift can be used to successfully eliminate:

  • Excess fat and skin that creates jowls
  • Excess fatty deposits under the chin (double chin)
  • Loose neck skin
  • Muscle banding in the neck that causes abnormal contours
Am I a candidate for a necklift?

While a necklift is a safe and effective anti-aging procedure, not all patients are candidates for this treatment. Ideally, a necklift is suited for patients who:

  • Have good health
  • Don’t have any medical conditions that impair healing
  • Are non-smokers
  • Have a positive outlook and realistic expectations of the outcome

Latest Testimonial

I recently had liposuction done by Dr. Peterson to fix Coolsculpt I had had done that left me uneven. He was very professional, caring and compassionate and assured me everything could be fixed. I can't express my gratitude to Dr. Peterson for what an amazing job he did and how well he took care of me. I would highly recommend him to anyone looking for a plastic surgeon, in fact I have recommended him to many friends and they have all been very happy. My experience at the clinic was amazing, right from the beginning talking with Cynthia and the amazing care I got from all the nurses, I felt very special.
