As we age, the collagen and elasticity in our necks begin to deplete, leaving our skin prone to sagging and wrinkling. This common and unavoidable condition has popularised non-surgical neck lift treatments as more people seek ways to make their necks appear tighter and younger.

What is a non-surgical neck lift?

A non-surgical neck lift, also known as no-knife neck lift or ‘Nefertiti neck lift’ (after the Egyptian queen recognised for her beauty and youthfulness), is an effective alternative to neck lift surgery. It temporarily reverses signs of ageing and sagging skin around the neck and chin, helping to tighten and refine the neck and jawline.

Several non-surgical neck lift treatment options can achieve that desired youthful and lifted look. Whilst the results of a non-surgical neck lift may not be as dramatic as those of a surgical neck lift procedure, it’s an ideal, less invasive alternative for those looking to rejuvenate their neck area.

What are the best non-surgical neck lifts?

There are several types of non-surgical neck lift treatments available at Karidis clinics, including:

Wrinkle smoothing injections – a neck relaxant that is administered by injection. It blocks signals between nerves and muscles, which then reduces muscle activity that causes lines and wrinkles.

Thread lifting – polylactic acid sutures that compress and lift sagging skin tissue, having a rejuvenating effect.

Ultherapy – a skin-tightening technology that uses micro-focused ultrasound energy to deliver heat into the deep skin layers, targeting precise areas of the neckline that need redefining.

Profhilo – a deep hydration treatment that injects hyaluronic acid into the skin to encourage the production of collagen and elastin, which in turn boosts skin hydration and moisture. This is well suited for mild lines or saggy skin.

FAQs for non-surgical lifts

Non-surgical neck lifts are beneficial for redefining the jawline. The ideal candidate for non-surgical neck lifts is someone with a mild to moderate degree of skin laxity around the neck, who wants to improve their skin firmness and jaw definition. People struggling with ageing skin on their necks or stubborn loose skin after weight loss can benefit greatly from non-surgical neck lift treatments.

While most people are suited to non-surgical neck lifts, our expert consultants will advise you on whether the treatment will achieve the desired results or if an alternative treatment will be better suited for you. Patients with more advanced levels of skin laxity may be advised to consider neck lift surgery for more effective and long-lasting results.

Non-surgical neck lifts are usually a quick procedure, with most treatments taking less than an hour. Depending on the type of non-surgical neck lift treatment you choose, the procedure can be as short as 15 minutes.

The lasting results of a non-surgical neck lift will depend on the treatment used. If you opt for botox injections, they’ll need to be administered every 3-4 months over a 12-month period to see optimal results. Threat lifting and ultratherpy can be more of a long-term option, with results usually lasting 18-24 months.

This is typically a safe procedure with minimal downtime. You may experience minor side effects – including swelling, bruising and skin sensitivity – immediately after the treatment.

There’s no downtime with any type of non-surgical neck lift treatment. This means you can continue with your day-to-day activities right away.

In most cases, our patients say they experience only slight discomfort during the procedure. The injection during botox methods may sting a little when administered, and you may get some minor swelling and bruising post-treatment.
