There is no option to getting rid of flexion type neck creases. Infants have them at birth; they are part of the skin’s ability flex with neck movement. A facelift will not help these lines. There is no surgery or injectables that will help with these lines.
This is actually a very common problem and there are very few options. Tightening modalities such as Protege elite or ultherapy can tighten the skin mildly but probably won't make the lines go away. Adding a filler such as Sculptra to the neck may also help but very few individuals perform this treatment.
Pelleve Skin Tightening for Your Neck
At my practice in New York, I might recommend Pelleve Skin Tightening for the neck, which is a nonsurgical radio frequency treatment that comfortably heats the deep layers of the skin, causing the skin to contract and firm, while reducing visible wrinkles and lines as collagen is boosted. Immediate results that improve with time, performed in under an hour.
Botox may help some with this problem. There really is no good surgical or permanent option I am aware of
Thank you for the question and pictures.
These lines can be difficult to treat; the use of fillers such as Restylane or Juvederm are your best bet; these to provide a temporary filling effect. I have suggested to patients your age that is probably in their best interest to leave them alone as opposed to spending time and money on temporary fixes.
How to soften deep neck crease in 20 something?
I'd suggest low dose Botox or Dysport injected along the lines as well as an effective skin care regimen to soften the unwanted horizontal lines along the neck.
These can be filled with a product such as Restylane or Juvederm. Alternatively, you can try localized skin tightening, but this would be my second choice. If you are willing to travel to Encinitas, I believe I can help you. Will apply topical anesthetic for about 30 mins, then carefully fill the creases, using magnification to assist. Agree with Dr. DeJoseph.
Softening Deep Neck Creases with Fillers
I have seen this problem many times before, and they can be challenging to fix. Lifting the neck will not change these as they are movement folds. I have had success by filling these lines with Restylane or Juvederm. It's relatively simple and works quite effectively. Your surgeon must use a small size needle to allow placement fairly superficially in the skin. Hope this was helpful.
Deep neck lines are difficult
We always want to figure things out for our patients. But these neck lines are difficult. Fat injections under the lines could help along with laser resurfacing. But there is nothing that has been widely accepted as the gold standard for treating these lines. We will continue to figure things out for our patients though. But this would b e the best advice at this time.
