Neck skin is more susceptible to scarring from the same treatments done on the face.  fraxel restore treatments, done every few weeks may improve the skin. There may need to be many more treatments than those done for the face. cutis rhomboidalis nuchae involves significant ultraviolet A sundamage that creates over years, a darkening and thickening with creases that are diagonal to each other on the neck.
