Many men and women focus their anti-aging efforts on their face since, unlike the body, the face is always on display. While taking care of the face is important, the neck should not be forgotten.
The neck is often just as visible as the face but does not usually receive the same amount of care. Every time you move your head from one direction to another, the tissues and muscles are stretched, contracted, and weakened. Eventually, this results in tissue laxity.
Renuvion® skin tightening for the neck is an alternative to invasive surgery for patients with skin and tissue laxity. This treatment combines helium plasma with radiofrequency energy for the minimally invasive restoration of a more youthful-looking neck.
Who Can Benefit from Renuvion® Skin Tightening?
Aging, sun exposure, and environmental damage break down the collagen and elastin proteins in the skin and tissues, causing undesirable laxity. Men and women who are displeased with neck laxity can benefit from Renuvion® skin tightening. This procedure is ideal for patients who do not have a significant amount of redundant skin and who do not want extensive incisions, scars, surgical risks, or lengthy recovery periods.
Who Are Candidates for Renuvion® Skin Tightening for the Neck?
Renuvion® skin tightening for the neck is often appropriate for patients who were previously recommended neck lift surgery. This treatment can address:
- Sagging skin
- Double chins
While this treatment can be performed on most patients with neck laxity, the best results show on patients with mild to moderate laxity. Candidates for this procedure should be in good overall health, not smoke, and have realistic expectations of their results. This minimally invasive treatment may not achieve the same level of correction as a neck lift.
What Does Your Renuvion® Skin Tightening Treatment Entail?
Renuvion® skin tightening for the neck combines helium plasma and radiofrequency energy to produce a dual thermal effect that precisely and effectively targets tissue while being gentle on the surface of the skin.
A waveform converts helium into a cold atmospheric plasma—helium is converted into plasma with very little energy, making it the ideal choice for this kind of procedure.
Small incisions are made in the neck, through which the Renuvion® probe is inserted. This probe administers the plasma energy and simultaneously heats and cools the neck tissues for precise and safe treatment.
The heating of the tissue stimulates collagen production, which causes them to contract and tighten.
Dr. Schlechter can perform Renuvion® alone or in combination with liposuction of the neck to eliminate excess fat beneath the chin.

What Kind of Renuvion® Results and Recovery Can You Expect in the Neck?
Renuvion® results will begin to show immediately following the procedure and will continue to improve over the following three to six months. Patients can enjoy a smoother and firmer neck for years to come.
Renuvion® treatment is quick and comfortable because it combines heating and cooling. This process causes less damage to the surrounding tissues, allowing for a more comfortable recovery. Some patients experience minor, temporary bruising and swelling during the first week, but all discomfort can be lessened with over-the-counter pain medications. Renuvion® is a minimally invasive surgical procedure, so there will be no scarring or extended downtime.
