I'm 24, female, and I have horizontal ring like folds that circle the entire circumference of my neck. What can I do?

It looks as though you may have lost some weight and possible have abit of extra skin. At your age and with this problem, i'd recommend non-surgical options.
Radiofrequency skin tightening - This is a technique that can gently heat the skin and literally tighten it. This often will reduce some of the folding you see. But keep in mind, some people have anatomy that just lend them selves to this problem so It likely wont't get rid of 100% of it, but I am sure it would help
Other than that, there are other forms of skin tightening, but I would advise one of my patients with our probelm against anything surgical at this time. I would try another method first.
