Chicken skin on the neck – what’s the best treatment?

What is the best treatment to deal with chicken skin on the neck and lose skin under the chin.

If you are over 50 and pretty loose, surgery may still be your best option. As much as I love nonsurgical options, sometimes the best, most cost effective result is surgery, if there is a lot of loose skin.


Start with good products, sunscreen every morning and try this SkinCeutials neck, chest & hand product.


But, non surgical techniques are starting to catch up on the neck. The Exilis is a very real option, as is a fractionated CO2 resurfacing (experts only), as are combinations of tightening technologies like Exilis with lasers. My prediction is that results on the neck will continue to really improve over the next few years as we understand better how to combine these technologies effectively.


Also, there are two good options awaiting FDA approval (no one knows when this will happen). One is an injectible that is quite safe that helps to melt fat under the chin and the other is a special adapter head for that area from CoolSculpting.


Hope this helps, Dr. I

One of the best investments in your skin is your daily skincare. Why? Because you can prevent many problems with blotchy skin color, lack of glow, texture, some types of acne, and fine lines with good skincare products. You can also correct some of these problems with effective skincare products. Great skincare is often more expensive because quality ingredients are expensive. Some companies spend on research/development which benefits all of us and adds to the cost. Are they worth it? In general - yes! I have handpicked some of what I consider to be the best skin care products, and offer them for sale on SkinTour's shop. This is based on my team and I's testing and research at our clinic. Many of the products are in my own regimen. What could be better than using skin care products a dermatologist uses?!
