Non-Surgical Neck Rejuvenation

The neck is one of the first areas to show the signs of aging. A double chin, turkey neck, crepey skin, and horizontal “tech neck” lines can make us appear older than we are. At Avalon Laser in San Diego and Carlsbad, we offer the non-surgical neck lift to restore a more graceful and youthful appearance to the neck.

What Can I Expect With A Non-Surgical Neck Lift?

Thermage Neck Tightening

Thermage only requires one treatment session and results continue to improve over time. Vibration is incorporated into the system for greater patient comfort. You can expect to feel a brief sensation of heat when the device touches your skin, followed by a cooling sensation to protect your skin and minimize discomfort.

Sciton SkinTyte Neck Tightening

SkinTyte uses pulsed light technology to heat the deep layer of your skin while cooling and protecting the treated surface. The light is delivered in gentle, rapid pulses. This procedure can be performed quickly and comfortably with no anesthetic required.


Neck bands – those vertical bands that appear with age – can be smoothed with custom BOTOX injections. The platysmal bands can become more prominent as you age. BOTOX can be an effective, non-surgical method to smooth these unsightly bands, creating a significant improvement in your overall appearance, lasting about four months before retreatment is needed.


Kybella is one of the most exciting developments in aesthetic science. Injected in a grid pattern beneath your chin, the active ingredient works to destroy fat cells. As the weeks pass after treatment, a double chin will slowly shrink, and the fat cells treated will never return.


Vivace is a non-invasive treatment that combines microneedling with radio frequency (RF) energy, which through the custom needling device, is delivered into the deeper layers of the neck skin, producing an immediate tightening effect. This revolutionary treatment has the added benefit of triggering natural collagen production for long-term firming and remodeling results as the natural collagen tightens the neck skin further, leaving it smoother, more supple, and more youthful, with a dual tightening and resurfacing effect.

What Is Recovery Like After A Non-Surgical Neck Lift?


No special care is required after Thermage neck tightening. Most people can return to their normal activities immediately after the procedure. Some patients experience minor swelling or temporary redness that typically resolves within 24 hours.


You may have some mild redness after treatment that should return to normal within minutes. There is no downtime with a SkinTyte neck lift. You can apply makeup and return to your normal activities immediately after the procedure.

Non-Surgical Neck Lift FAQ's

How do Thermage and SkinTyte work to lift the neck?

How soon will I see results and how long will they last?

What kind of results can I expect?

How do Thermage and SkinTyte work to lift the neck?

Thermage: Thermage is a non-invasive radiofrequency therapy that works without incisions or injections. Radiofrequency energy is used to heat the deeper layer of skin where the collagen is, causing it to contract and stimulating new collage growth.

SkinTyte: This technique deeply heats the dermal collagen using infrared energy. It also causes the collagen to contract and encourages new collagen production. Powerful cooling built into the system maintains the outer layer of skin at a cool temperature both during and after the procedure.

How soon will I see results and how long will they last?

Thermage neck tightening results appear gradually over a period of two to six months after treatment and can last for one to two years. Results with SkinTyte can take up to four months to appear as the body rebuilds and strengthens the skin’s collagen foundation.

What kind of results can I expect?

Thermage: Thermage helps create smoother skin after only one treatment. Results are visible immediately and improve over time. They may include:

  • Tighter skin of the neck
  • Greater elasticity of the skin
  • Smoother skin of the neck with crepiness corrected
  • Gently lifted jowls
  • Improved profile

  • SkinTyte: Results can vary from person to person and may take up to four months to appear. This treatment is designed for women and men who want to achieve noticeable, moderate skin tightening improvement without undergoing surgery.
