Neck Laxity after Facelift
You are correct, excess skin in the neck will not improve unless it is removed. I do not feel any minimally invasive treatment will give you a significant result based on the amount of skin you have on your pictures.

Neck skin laxity
Not every patient needs any skin removed in order to improve laxity of the neck. It depends a lot on the age and skin quality, and whether or not there is any elasticity that can lead to improvement as the skin heals and contracts. There are good reasons to avoid skin excision when possible (although I can understand that logically to most patients it would seem to be necessary always). That said, if you are not accomplishing the degree of improvement you want, then it may be necessary to revise, and be more aggressive with skin redraping, and excision. This will necessitate longer incisions and thus scars, which can typically be hidden behind the ears and into the hairline.
