What treatment is most effective for sagging skin in the neck area?

Okay  –  so I need a little more information here.  Are you talking about a pooch or fullness right under the chin which is usually a fat pad (submental)?  Are you talking about those thin, vertical bands under the chin running down to  the upper neck (platysmal bands)?  Are you talking about just loose skin right under the chin?   Or, the loose, slightly crepey skin all up and down the neck?  Or, the horizontal thin lines across the neck – sometimes called “necklace” lines?   I’m sure you see where I’m going!!!  These all have somewhat different solutions and age really matters here.  A prominent platysmal band in a 40 year old is very different than one in a someone who is 70. See my article on neck issues for more information.   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?!
