The neck is always a tell-tale sign of ageing but help is at hand – non-invasive neck lift treatment is a simple procedure and usually highly effective. There are several treatment options to tighten and redefine the neck and jaw line to regain a youthful neckline.
A neck lift is sometimes called a no-knife neck lift but quite often referred to as a ‘Nefertiti Neck Lift’ based on the Egyptian queen, renowned for her beauty and elegant, swan-like neckline. Treatment for a neck lift (sometimes referred to in a rather less than glamorous way as ‘turkey neck’) is through botulinum toxin injections, thread lifting or ultrasound skin tightening technology. To book a consultation please don’t hesitate to call our clinics in London and Buckinghamshire.

On arrival to the clinic on your appointment day your practitioner will welcome you and go through what the treatment involves as well as discussing what to expect after the procedure.
Your treatment will take place, this can take anywhere from 20 minutes to an hour depending which treatment you will be having.
Once this is complete your practitioner will again go through what to expect in the hours or days following treatment and provide you with an aftercare plan to ensure you achieve the best results.
We will explain everything in detail and make you feel at ease and relaxed on the day of your treatment, knowing you’re in safe, expert and medically qualified hands.
Choosing the best non-surgical neck treatment will depend on the severity of your concerns.
For patients with minor or mild neck sagging then a more subtle treatment such as Botox or Profhilo can help to soften lines and improve the overall condition of the skin.
Those with more moderate sagging and wrinkles may get better results from a Silhouette thread lift treatment where the skin is actively lifted giving a more instant and noticeable result. Ultherapy is another great option and is the only FDA-cleared, non-invasive treatment for lifting the skin on the neck and chin although the results are more gradual but can be longer lasting.
In some instances a combination of two treatments such as Profhilo and Ultherapy may be suggested as the best non surgical neck lift treatment for you.
Our skin experts will explain all of the treatments available in detail to help you feel informed about each one. They will examine your area of concern and be able to suggest what they feel is going to be the best treatment to help you achieve the results you are after.
Your medical practitioner will give you all the advice you need.
There are many benefits to non surgical neck lift treatment which include:
By choosing a non surgical treatment you are also not having to commit to surgery which may involve staying at hospital and travelling further afield. All of our non-surgical neck lift treatments are performed in clinic by expert practitioners, have minimal downtime and low side effects and risks, meaning you can enjoy great results from non-surgical neck lift treatment without surgery.
You may need to have botulinum toxin injections approximately every 3-4 months over a 12-month period to maintain your fresh and natural appearance.
Silhouette Soft thread lift effects last 18-24 months.
Patients treated with Ultherapy still have fresh young collagen even after a year, and touch-up treatments will keep rebuilding collagen, usually lasting up to 18-24 months.
Your medical practitioner will give you all the advice you need.
It normally takes 5-14 days for botulinum toxin injections to work. We usually obtain good results after just a single injection.
Silhouette Soft thread lifting gives an immediate but natural lift effect in addition to a progressive volume action over 12-18 months.
With Ultherapy, new collagen is gradually produced over time so results can become more apparent lasting up to 18-24 months.
Botulinum toxin has an excellent safety profile with over 2.5 million users to date across the UK, France, Italy, Spain and Germany. The doses are very small and the risks are minimal. If any do occur, they’re temporary and just mild to moderate.
Silhouette Soft uses a natural component – poly-l-lactic acid (or PLA) – that is successfully proven in a number of medical and pharmaceutical fields, such as for suture thread and orthopaedic pins.
Over half a million Ultherapy treatments have been performed so far, and the procedure is approved for safety by the FDA.
There is no downtime with any of the neck lift treatment options and you can resume normal activities right away.
Botulinum toxin injections usually take around 20 minutes. If there’s a little bruising, you can easily camouflage it with makeup.
With Silhouette Soft thread lifting, treatment takes just 30 minutes using a small, local anaesthetic administered via the tiny entry points and only one procedure is needed.
The Ultherapy procedure takes about an hour. There may be slight redness for up to an hour or so afterwards, but any after-effects are temporary.
Many people find their procedure at The Cosmetic Skin Clinic more comfortable than expected. That’s because our medical practitioners are so highly skilled and precise.
