Several non-surgical Neck Lift options, like Botox and Morpheus8, are available that address the signs of ageing, such as skin laxity, or neck lines and wrinkles, without requiring invasive procedures. These alternatives offer a noticeable improvement in the neck without the downtime and risk of surgical procedures.

Botox

Botox is a popular turkey neck treatment used to address the appearance of tight vertical bands in the neck. Purified Botulinum toxin is carefully injected into the Platysma muscle of the neck during the procedure. As the muscle relaxes, the neck bands become less prominent. 

Botox in the neck offers subtle results with minimal downtime. The results are temporary, typically lasting 3-4 months with periodic treatments needed to maintain results. 

Morpheus8

Morpheus8 is a non-surgery Neck Lift option that combines Microneedling and Radio Frequency (RF) energy to target the deeper layers of your skin. The treatment stimulates collagen production in the neck, leading to tighter skin on the neck. 

This non-surgical Neck Lift procedure is particularly effective in addressing skin laxity after weight loss. This no-surgery Neck Lift can cause some swelling and redness after the procedure but the downtime is minimal. 

Plasma Treatments

This option for non-surgical Neck Lift uses plasma energy to create controlled micro-injuries on the skin surface. It triggers your body’s natural healing response, encouraging the synthesis of elastin and collagen - the two proteins responsible for keeping the skin tight and plump.

Plasma treatments target loose skin in the neck to achieve a more toned appearance. Recovery from this neck-tightening procedure involves a few days of downtime, and you may experience small scabs appearing at the treatment site.  

The results from these non-surgery Neck Lifts are not immediate, as new collagen takes time to be created. You’ll also need several sessions over a few months to see a noticeable effect.

How Does a Non-Surgical Neck Lift Work?

Non-surgical Neck Lifts work by relaxing the muscles or stimulating collagen production. 

  • Anti-ageing injectables work by temporarily relaxing the platysma muscles in the neck, relieving the tension that results in long lasting wrinkles in the skin. As the muscles relax, the skin appears smoother, and neck bands become less visible.
  • Treatments like Morpheus8 or Plasma Therapy use low-yield energy to heat the skin’s deeper layers. This stimulates collagen and elastin production, leading to tighter skin.

What Concerns Can a Non-Surgical Neck Lift Target?

No-surgery Neck Lifts address multiple concerns, such as skin laxity, wrinkles and fine lines, and neck bands.

  • Skin laxity: Non-surgical procedures, like Plasma Therapy or Morpheus8, tighten the skin on the neck by stimulating collagen production.
  • Wrinkles and fine lines: Procedures like Botox in the neck relax muscles and promote collagen production which targets wrinkles and lines. 
  • Neck bands: Botox injections also address bands in the neck that appear due to the muscles contracting excessively. Once the muscles are relaxed with anti-ageing injectables, the bands can become less visible. 
  • Double chin: Excess fat under the chin and saggy jowls can be addressed with no-surgery Neck Lifts.

It’s important to talk to an experienced surgeon to understand and explore your options. Our experienced surgeons at Cadogan Clinic will provide you with expert insight into the most effective and safe option for you.


Who is the Ideal Candidate for a Non-Surgical Neck Lift?

The ideal candidate is anyone who has mild to moderate skin laxity, wrinkles, and lines in the neck area that they wish to address with a non-surgical approach. 

Candidates should also be in good general health, without skin infections or medical conditions that may impact the healing process. During a consultation with one of our dedicated surgeons, they will discuss your medical history and assess whether you are suitable for a non-surgical Neck Lift procedure.


When Can you Opt for a Neck Lift Without Surgery?

You can opt for a Neck Lift without surgery to address mild to moderate skin laxity and early signs of ageing. Procedures like Botox injections and Morpheus8 are good alternatives to surgery to address minor sagging or wrinkles in the neck. 

If you wish to have a more subtle improvement rather than a drastic change, non-surgical options may be worth considering. They can offer natural-looking changes to the appearance of your neck. However, it is important to remember that this means there is a limit in the results they can achieve and any concerns which are more severe may not be treatable with these methods.


When Do You Need to Choose a Surgical Neck Lift?

The more apparent the signs of ageing are around the neck, the more likely a surgical Neck Lift becomes the most appropriate option to consider. This can be the case for excessive loose skin and prominent bands around the neck that non-surgical procedures can’t effectively alter. 

  • Skin laxity: If you have extensive, excess loose skin on the neck, skin tightening with non-surgical methods may not be effective. A surgical Neck Lift removes excess skin to improve the appearance of ageing around the neck.
  • Prominent neck bands: Excessive muscle laxity results in neck bands that are difficult to remove using Botox. Surgical Neck Lifts tighten the neck skin and muscles and make neck bands less visible.
  • Long-lasting results: If you wish to have a more permanent solution, a surgical Neck Lift provides long-term results that don’t require frequent repeat visits. 
  • Disappointment with non-surgical treatments: If your previous non-surgical treatments haven’t produced the kinds of results you were hoping for, a surgical Neck Lift may be more appropriate. 

Discussing your options with a qualified and experienced cosmetic surgeon will help you determine whether a surgical Neck Lift is the right option for you. Our Neck Lift before and after gallery has many pictures showing what you can expect from the surgical procedure.


How Long Does a Non-Surgical Neck Lift Last?

Non-surgical treatments produce temporary improvements in your neck’s appearance, with results lasting from a few months to years, depending on the method used.

For instance, a Neck Lift non-surgical procedure like Botox typically lasts 3-4 months, while Morpheus8 and Plasma Treatments last up to a year or two. You will need maintenance treatments to preserve results after any non-surgical neck treatment, and lifestyle factors like excessive sun exposure, a poor diet, and smoking will affect the longevity of the results.  


How Do You Maintain a Non-Surgical Neck Lift?

Maintaining the results from a no-surgery Neck Lift involves a combination of follow-up treatments, skincare and lifestyle adjustments.

  • Maintenance treatments: Ensure that you schedule follow-up sessions for the non-surgical procedures as recommended by your cosmetic surgeon. These treatments often require repeat treatments to maintain the results. 
  • Skincare: A good skincare routine ensures the longevity of non-surgical treatments. Protect your neck from direct sunlight, and use skincare products recommended by your surgeon containing retinol, peptides and antioxidants to support skin elasticity.
  • Lifestyle: A healthy diet with proper hydration supports skin health and helps you maintain the results of your procedure. Regular exercise also contributes to skin elasticity.

How Much Does a Non-Surgical Neck Lift Cost?

The cost of a no-surgery Neck Lift varies depending on the specific treatment used, and the surgeon’s experience. While the price of Botox injections ranges from £150 to £350 per session, more sophisticated treatments like Morpheus8 are in the range of £1,500 to £3,500 per session.

Our dedicated patient advisors at Cadogan Clinic provide personalised treatment plans and costs for all the non-surgical procedures we provide.

FAQs

The best non-surgical procedures for neck tightening result in a more defined jawline, reduced sagging and wrinkles and a tighter neck appearance. Keep in mind that the results are more subtle compared to a surgical Neck Lift procedure.

Although non-surgical Neck Lifts are less invasive than surgery, side effects such as swelling, bruising, redness and discomfort at the treatment site are common. There is a risk of allergic reactions and skin infections and you may also experience temporary changes in skin sensations with treatments like Plasma Therapy.

Non-surgical turkey neck treatments, like Botox or Morpheus8, produce temporary results. You’ll need top-up treatments to maintain the results over time. The frequency of these top-up treatments will depend on the technique used.

A surgical Neck Lift costs more than a non-surgical procedure. While the non-surgical options might be less expensive upfront, the cumulative cost of maintenance treatments can add up over time. 

Neck Lifts and Facelifts both target signs of ageing, such as sagging skin, jowls, wrinkles, and lines. But there are some differences.

A Neck Lift focuses on tightening the skin around the neck. A Facelift changes the position of the skin and soft tissues in the mid and lower portions of the face, resulting in a tighter, plumper and more youthful appearance to the face.
