Neck rejuvenation, which is also known as jawline rejuvenation, jaw sculpting, Nefertiti necklift, and a number of other names, refers to anti ageing efforts in treating the skin of the neck. Most people neglect their necks during their usual morning or bedtime routine. People forget that the skin on the neck is as fragile as the skin on the face. Great care is required in the face and neck cleansing routines. Progressive aging causes the neck collagen fibers to become weak. That’s when the neck begins to lose elasticity. One of the first signs of an ageing neck is the turkey neck effect, where the skin starts to hang and look loose. The looser skin on the lower neck begins to lose form, and horizontal wrinkle lines appear across the neck.
Luckily, there are many non-surgical ways to address the signs of aging on the neck. Dr. Torgerson’s Facial Cosmetic Clinic offers 2 non-invasive, neck shaping treatments.
Botox can be injected into the neck to temporarily improve the appearance of the visible vertical bands on the neck in men and women. Most people have significant wrinkles and lines by the age of 45. Botox is great at preventing and reducing the formation of wrinkles, and it creates a smoothing effect on the surface of the skin because of it muscle relaxing properties. Dr. Torgerson performs all his injectable treatments at his Toronto Facial Cosmetic Clinic. This is a great non-invasive way to rejuvenate the neck and eliminate the signs of ageing with no downtime. Patients who receive Botox neck lift procedures can expect their results to last anywhere from 4 to 6 months.
Dermal filler in the neck is another way to rejuvenate the skin in the neck. Dermal fillers contain hyaluronic acid, which absorbs the water molecules that make the skin appear fuller and plumper for a period of 4 months to 1 year, depending on the type of filler product used. Aged, mature necks can benefit from longer-lasting fillers that display improvements for a year or longer. Dr. Torgerson determines the ideal filler for his patients by selecting the dermal filler based on their age, skin quality, and lifestyle. Dermal fillers are a quick and easy way to address signs of ageing in the neck and surrounding areas.
For improved results, Dr. Torgerson may recommend Botox injections in the jawline, also called masseter Botox injections. The masseter muscles cover the lower jawline bone near the ears. The injection of Botox reduces the muscle’s activity, causing the jaw to appear slimmer and relaxed.

Dr. Torgerson may also suggest chin Botox injections or the use of dermal filler to assist in the contouring of the jawline areas. This makes the neck look smoother and firmer. The chin is an important component in making changes to the neck and jaw area.
There are several factors that need to be considered when rejuvenating the neck and the neck area. A complimentary consultation with Dr. Torgerson is the easiest way to find out if you can benefit from a complete neck rejuvenation procedure that will make your neck appear smoother and more youthful.
