Treatment of neck lines
Once an underlying etiology is elucidated, you can start looking ahead towards treatment options. These may include either adding or decreasing volume on your neck. There is a new product on the horizon from a company called Kythera that should be approved by the FDA soon. It is currently called ATX–101. The clinical trials for this product looked at its ability to dissolve submental fat, under the chin, and it may provide a future option and some hope as far as treatment for you.
To guarantee you're receiving the highest level of care, seek out a dermatologic surgeon, oculoplastic surgeon, facial plastic surgeon or plastic surgeon who is board certified and fellowship trained in one of these "core four" cosmetic specialties.
Laser Assisted Weekend Facelift
Cervicofacial Liposculpture is first employed to contour the unfavorable fatty changes seen in the face and neck as time passes by, such as the ‘Turkey neck’ and ‘double chin’.
Careful attention is then turned to tightening the neck muscles and eliminating neck bands. Finally, I employ laser technology to ‘resurface’ the underside of the neck skin, thereby ‘shrinkwrapping’ the skin of the neck restoring a youthful contour.
A consultation with a board certified facial plastic surgeon will help determine which procedures will provide the best results for you.
Options for Neck Folds: Liposuction, Neck Lift, Fat Injections
This probably represents a congenital abnormality of the skin and subcutaneous tissue. The cause of the problem isn’t clear and the best treatment is even less clear. Options might include fat injections, liposuction and possibly a neck lift. Although your pictures are helpful a physical exam will be necessary for a more definitive treatment plan.
Deep Neck Folds
You appear to have a rather unusual problem; the lines are very deep. There are several options you could try from fat injections, fillers, liposuction or even a neck lift but without a thorough exam it is difficult to determine the best option. At my practice, Cape Fear Aesthetics, we always recommend a patient comes in for a thorough consultation, which at my cosmetic practice, are always complimentary. “Dr. D”
Treatment of horizontal neck lines
Fillers may benefit you but you would want to consider a semi permanent filler or fat injections, but you would be best off having a necklift and liposuction to your neck first to reduce the depth of the folds as much as possible. Hyaluronic acids like Restylane will cost you a lot of money and would require treatment every 6 months at least.
