Non-Surgical Neck Lifts: Your Options for Neck Skin Tightening without Surgery

By Beverly Fischer on January 20, 2023

Non-Surgical Back to Blog


Necks seem to be one of those areas that we don’t pay much heed to until it’s too late. We often don’t regularly apply moisturizer or daily sunscreen to our necks like we do to our faces, and after a time there’s not much we can do to avoid wrinkles, folds, and the dreaded “turkey neck.” But there are some things we can do to address them! While surgery is highly effective at erasing the effects of time through neck skin tightening, there are a number of other effective, far less expensive, and safe non surgical neck lifts that can achieve the same look.

Non-Surgical Neck Lift Benefits

Although non-surgical neck lift results may not be quite as impactful as surgical neck lift results, the former has many important benefits. Not only can these treatments enhance the texture and tone of your skin, but they also decrease the appearance of neck folds and wrinkles—and help you achieve a more youthful neck. Non-surgical neck lifts also feature:

Quicker Treatments: Neck surgery often lasts a few hours, whereas non-surgical neck lifts can be done within 30 to 90 minutes, depending on the treatment.

Faster Recoveries: Since non-surgical treatments don’t create incisions that need to heal, they only require a few hours to a few days of downtime. Their side effects are also negligible; you may experience some redness or soreness at an injection site.

Lower Costs: Surgeries are usually more expensive than non-surgical treatments.

Fewer Risks: With surgery, you’ll need to have general anesthesia, which does carry some risks. Surgery also produces incisions that may not heal properly.  Non-surgical treatments do not have these challenges.

Which Non-Surgical Neck Lifts are Best for Me?

Not only do non-surgical neck lifts offer these benefits, but there are a variety of different treatments to suit your needs. Here are some excellent non-surgical neck lift options:


It’s not just for your forehead! Botox has a number of uses as a muscle relaxant. When applied to the neck, it helps calm muscles and counteract the downward pull that causes wrinkles and folds along the neck and those vertical neck bands that can age you. This small injection is easy, quick, and pretty painless—with almost no downtime. You can refresh your neck every three to four months.

Dermal Filler Injections

Similar to Botox, dermal fillers like Restylane, Sculptra, Juvederm and Voluma can also spur collagen growth on the neck. These soft and gel-like treatments work by replacing lost collagen and plumping up the skin to restore volume, reduce fine lines and wrinkles, and build up the jawline. They are safe to use since most fillers consist of hyaluronic acid (HA), which naturally occurs in the body. Results are instant and can last up to a year. There is no recovery time necessary, although there may be some minimal swelling.

Halo™ is a hybrid fractional laser resurfacing treatment that is incredibly versatile and effective, providing both ablative and non-ablative wavelengths that gently heat a portion of your skin to spur collagen production. The heat triggers your body to heal and provide fresh, healthier skin cells that replace your old skin cells, giving you a refreshed look, tighter, smoother skin, and new collagen growth. You just need a topical anesthesia—and sometimes a regional or systemic anesthesia. The downtime can be around ten days.

Chemical Peels

You’ve likely had chemical peels for your face, and they work just as well on your neck area too. With a gentle acidic solution, these peels safely exfoliate the outer layer of skin to remove the dead skin cells and reveal the smoother, brighter, and more youthful layer underneath, removing fine wrinkles and lines in the process. You can choose the level of exfoliation you’d like to receive. There is zero downtime, and results are immediate.


This simple treatment works by using tiny needles to stimulate the skin to produce more collagen and refresh the neck. It kickstarts a continual process that ultimately gives you rejuvenated youthful skin, and reduces fine lines and wrinkles or other blemishes on your neck. Results are apparent within a few weeks, recovery occurs within 48 hours, and the continued collagen production keeps your skin looking great for months.

Refresh Your Neck

Treat yourself to one of these non-surgical treatments today. They can make a big difference in the appearance of your neck, which is one of the first things that people notice about you. They don’t require much downtime, and many have none at all. They’re also far more cost-effective than surgical procedures.
