Mild Vertical Neck Lines
I have noticed vertical crepiness, fine lines on my neck, particularly when flexing.
Early crepiness and neck laxity and a 38-year-old
Nonsurgical methods such as Ulthera and Thermage can achieve about 22% of the tightening that a lift will provide. I am not sure that they're worth the significant expense of these procedures because they cannot reach or effect the muscles under the skin that are causing the bands that you see.
Please consult a plastic surgeon who is certified by the American Board of Plastic Surgery, very experienced in neck lift procedures, and who has an excellent reputation in your community for a consultation.

Neck Lift and Loose Skin
For loose and 'crepey' skin, this is a problem with the skin's elasticity and not muscle laxity. which may be improved upon with a series of non-surgical procedures such as: Thermage or Viora Reaction, IPL Therapy (Intense Pulse Light Therapy), Laser Resurfacing or a series of medium depth Chemical Peels.
It is best to be evaluated first and book a consultation with a board certified physician to determine what the most appropriate procedure is for your situation.
