When people create a skincare routine, many neglect the appearance of their neck. However, this area is one of the first that shows signs of aging. Sun damage or extreme weight loss may also cause the skin on a person’s neck to look loose, aged, and saggy. It is common for people to go to great measures to improve the appearance of the skin on their face, but equal attention should be paid to the neck. If you are interested in tightening your neck skin, there are many excellent solutions available, including the Infini RF treatment.

What Causes Neck Skin Sagging?
There are many different reasons for why skin begins to sag aside from the natural process of aging. Genetics play a big role in how and when you begin to show signs of aging, but the main reason why skin loses its firmness is because of the decrease of collagen and elastin production as we get older. Lifestyle choices and habits also contribute to developing saggy neck skin. Some of these lifestyle factors include stress, environmental elements, and inadequate skin protection. One of the biggest causes of premature aging skin is using tanning beds and spending time in the sun without proper UVA and UVB protection. These emissions affect the skin by suppressing the immune system and affecting the lower layers of skin. Smoking also contributes to aging because it inhibits the flow of oxygen, vitamins, and other nutrients that flow to the skin through blood vessels. Since smoking constricts these vessels, it leads to signs of aging on the face and neck.
Can Neck Skin Be Tightened without Surgery?
If surgery is too invasive and risky for you, there are many other solutions for a sagging neck. The good news is, sagging neck skin is gradual and doesn’t happen overnight, so at the first sight of it, you can begin to make changes to your lifestyle to slow the appearance of aging. Here are a few ways you can achieve neck lifting at home:
- Exercise your face and neck muscles to increase the appearance of firmness
- Avoid repeated straining facial expressions
- Eat a healthy diet and drink lots of water
- Apply a daily moisturizer with SPF
- Limit sun exposure
- Quit smoking
- Avoid sudden weight gain or loss
- Exfoliate your skin before moisturizing
Although home remedies can improve the signs of aging, there are more effective medical procedures that do not involve surgery. These include the following:
An effective way to tighten neck skin is by using prescription retinoids, but for people with sensitive skin, this method is not recommended. Non-prescription retinol and various cosmetic products that contain peptides, fruit acids, antioxidants, stem cells, botanicals, vitamins, and growth factors, can also help slow the aging process and improve the look of your skin. These products need to be used daily and can help improve pigmentation and firmness.
Laser resurfacing is another effective treatment against sagging skin. Using a wand-like laser instrument, the upper layers of skin are removed. As these old cells are removed, newer, more youthful cells grow in its place. Since the technique uses a laser, the technician has full control over how deep the treatment is, which reduces any complications. The heat from the laser also works to stimulate the production of collagen in the skin, and produces a smoother, more even appearance as it heals.
Infini RF Microneedling
One of the most popular treatments for skin tightening on the neck, and other areas like the hands, is the Infini RF microneedling treatment. This treatment involves the use of insulated microneedles that deliver focused heat to the under layers of the skin. Since the needles are insulated, the surface skin is not affected by the heat. As a result, there is less redness and irritation post-treatment, unlike other methods. By causing micro-damage in the form of heat to the underlying layers of skin, the body responds by sending new collagen and elastin to those areas, thereby creating a more youthful, tight appearance. The Infini treatment does more than treat sagging skin, it also provides skin rejuvenation and improves wrinkles, scars from acne, stretch marks, and trauma.
Why Choose Infini RF for Neck Skin Sagging?
The Infini RF microneedling procedure brings amazing anti-aging results, including improving sagging skin. It is non-surgical and mildly invasive, so you won’t need to worry about long recovery times. Since it distributes heat to controlled zones in the skin, it protects against irritation and provides precision to the areas you need improvement in. Not all devices of its kind are able to provide this level of precision, nor can they be programmed to operate at various depths. Therefore, the Infini RF treatment is very effective and a unique solution for treating skin sagging. While Infini is ideal for face and neck skin, it also works to restore the youthful appearance on your hands. Many say the hands are a clear sign of someone’s age—don’t let wrinkly, sagging skin on your hands get in your way. Try the Infini treatment to get your youthful skin back!
