Abstract

Nonsurgical skin tightening in the neck is an area of significant growth with seemingly countless devices. Optimal treatment choice depends on the patient's concerns, anatomy, and lifestyle. Patients with minimal skin laxity, but dynamic platysmal bands may benefit from botulinum toxin injections. Mild to moderately lax skin can be addressed with microfocused ultrasound or radiofrequency with microneedling. Significant sun damage and laxity can both be addressed with fractional ablative lasers. Options for submental preplatysmal fat include percutaneous radiofrequency, radiofrequency-helium plasma, deoxycholic acid injections, and cryolipolysis. Of these, percutaneous radiofrequency has the highest patient satisfaction and lowest complication rate.
