The neck is often ignored in even the most conscientious of beauty regimens. Unfortunately, it can easily reveal your age. Depleting collagen and elastin levels result in skin laxity, creating the appearance of wrinkles and sagginess that can add years to your true age.

Treatment for neck laxity at Dermaworks Medical Aesthetics Clinic is nonsurgical. Over one or more sessions, the skin on the neck can be tightened to reduce the presence of wrinkles and creases.

Ottawa Non-Surgical Skin Tightening for the Neck

Today, women and men have options to rejuvenate the neck without undergoing invasive surgery. If skin laxity of the neck is adding years to your appearance, Dr. Demetra Vassiliou at Dermaworks can tailor a non-surgical treatment plan for you.

BOTOX and Dysport Injections for Neck Rejuvenation in Ottawa

Injections of neuromodulators, such as BOTOX and Dysport, can be an effective treatment option for an aging neck, particularly for treating vertical neck bands. The platysma muscles of the neck play a direct role in the signs of aging. As we grow older, these thick, vertical bands may become visible, running in a V-shape from the top to the base of the neck, creating a “turkey wattle” effect.

BOTOX and Dysport both contain a purified form of botulinum toxin. When injected into the muscles, this FDA-approved medication blocks nerve receptors to help prevent nerve impulses from reaching the muscle. Within a few days after treatment in Ottawa, controlled muscle relaxation with BOTOX or Dysport injections can relax prominent vertical bands and minimize wrinkles of the neck.

This treatment can also improve the jawline. Neuromodulator injections to relax the platysma muscles can reduce the downward pull of the muscles on the jowls.

Dermal Fillers to Treat Neck Laxity in Ottawa

Along with vertical neck bands, loss of volume can play a role in aging of the neck. Injectable dermal fillers can be an effective way to:

  • Add volume
  • Improve the jaw line in the pre-jowl and post-jowl areas
  • Correct the angle of the mandible (jawbone)
  • Correct “witch’s chin” (unsightly drooping and sagging of skin at the tip of chin)

Several popular types of dermal fillers today are made from a synthetic form of hyaluronic acid (HA), a substance that occurs naturally in the skin. Hyaluronic acid attracts moisture to the skin and adds volume and softness.

Advanced facial fillers in Ottawa are an excellent option for treating “tech neck” -- aging of the neck caused by repetitive motions in using mobile phones and other devices. Aesthetic concerns associated with tech neck include:

  • Skin laxity
  • Double chin
  • Neck wrinkles
  • Crepiness of the skin

Hyaluronic acid injectable fillers are a go-to treatment for deeply-etched, horizontal lines of the neck. When injected with precision and skill, HA fillers can smooth horizontal neck lines, instantly creating a more youthful-looking neck.
