Types of non-surgical neck lifts they offer 

  • Botox® – relaxes the targeted muscle and counteracts the downward pull that causes folds, wrinkles, and vertical neck bands.
  • Kybella® – the first FDA-approved injectable for eliminating excess fat in the submental area. Injecting it in the double chin can permanently reduce the amount of excess fat cells in the area and result in enhanced contouring of the neck and jawline.
  • Sylfirm X – combines microneedling with radiofrequency (RF) energy to heat the supporting layers of the skin, triggering new collagen and elastin production. It produces a jowl lift by tightening and lifting the skin around the neck and jawline and enhancing the skin’s texture.
  • Virtue RF – combines microneedling and RF energy to trigger the body’s natural healing response and stimulate collagen and elastin. Collagen remodeling reduces lines, wrinkles, and blemishes on your neck, and rejuvenates neck skin for a more youthful look.
  • Ultimate Duo – combines CoolPeel laser (a gentler alternative to the traditional CO2 laser) with Virtue RF microneedling to resurface and rejuvenate the skin with more comprehensive results.
  • Dermal fillers – use active ingredients like hyaluronic acid, poly-L-lactic acid, or calcium hydroxylapatite to restore lost volume, plump up the skin, eliminate wrinkles, stimulate new collagen production, and enhance neck and jawline contours.

Your Non-Surgical Neck Lift Experience 

Your Consultation

Courtney Whitley, FNC-PHeather Bryant, MPAS, PA-C, and Amanda Piligian, PA-C, perform all of our skin rejuvenation treatments.

During your consultation, they will listen closely to the concerns you have about your neck and what results you’d like to achieve. They will inquire about your medical history, skincare regimen, and prior cosmetic procedures you have done. They will assess your neck and examine the skin’s texture, areas of sun damage, elasticity, and degree of sagging skin. Finally, they can customize the best procedure plan for you.

They will explain how a device or injectable treatment works, discuss their skin-rejuvenating benefits and possible risks, and provide recommendations on how to prepare for a treatment.

Your Procedure

Step 1: Virtue RF Treatment

If you are undergoing the Ultimate Duo combination procedure, it begins with the Virtue RF treatment. To ensure a more comfortable treatment experience, we will apply a numbing cream 30-45 minutes before the procedure. You may feel slight pressure from the handpiece, especially on the bony portions of the neck area and jawline.

Step 2: Post-Treatment Care

You may have some redness after the procedure, but the post-treatment mask, infused with antioxidants and anti-inflammatory properties, should soothe and nourish the skin. A neck treatment will take 20 minutes or less to perform.

Step 3: CoolPeel Treatment

For the CoolPeel treatment, a handheld device creates a controlled injury through short energy pulses with less heat buildup in the skin. A treatment takes about 15-20 minutes to complete.

Step 4: Profound RF Treatment

Profound RF is similar to Virtue RF. A handpiece uses very fine needles to create micro-injuries to the skin while delivering RF energy to the deeper layers of the skin. It should be a quick treatment that should take no more than 20 minutes to complete.

Step 5: Botox, Dermal Filler, and Kybella Injections

For Botox, dermal filler, and Kybella injections, we use the “needleless” technique with blunt-tipped microcannulas to inject targeted areas around the neck and jawline. Injections should take just a few minutes to complete.

Step 6: Resumption of Regular Activities

You may resume your regular activities after your treatment.

Frequently Asked Questions

The total cost varies depending on your unique needs and aesthetic goals. Given that these treatments are customized, factors that affect the cost include the extent of your signs of aging, the types of devices used, the types of injectables used, and the number of units used. The cost of your non-surgical neck lift will be discussed during your consultation.

Generally, you need minimal preparation before a non-surgical neck lift. In most cases, we advise our patients to avoid smoking and taking aspirin, NSAIDs, Vitamin E supplements, and other blood thinners two weeks before their treatment to minimize the risk of bruising and to ensure the best possible results.

You should start seeing improvement a few days after your treatment. Once the swelling subsides and your skin has healed, you’ll begin to notice tighter neck skin and a refreshed appearance.


Depending on your combination of treatments, you can expect results to last a few months to a few years.

While there are technically no age restrictions for undergoing non-surgical neck lifts, there are age restrictions laid out by the FDA on injectables. Patients must be 18 to receive Botox injections and 21 to receive dermal fillers.


Non-surgical neck lift treatments are suitable for individuals who are beginning to see signs of aging in the neck area, such as a double chin, a saggy neck or turkey neck, and lines and wrinkles in the neck.

Because a neck lift is considered an elective procedure that is not medically necessary, it won’t be covered by insurance.
